Fresh WP Goodness...

chopped up like you would chop up a carrot, or perhaps a turnip...

but not with a knife, because we, erm... chop things up with our podcast.

So, WP Builds is like a big choppy, podcasty knife.

Our latest episodes...

19 – What do you need to know to offer a full web design service

Today we ask ourselves what skills do we need to offer a full web design service. That sounded like a great topic. It turns out it’s a bit slippery this one.Is a webdesigner like a graphic designer for the web or someone who designs business solutions that are realised on the web?

18 – What’s so great about WordCamp?

In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence today is “World day of making a podcast about WordCamps”.

Even more freakily (is that really a word?) we have both just recently attended our first WordCamps. I know, you’re right – it’s almost unbelievable!

17 – What should we expect from WP support?

No guests this week. Just Nathan and David. Two guys in their middle youth chatting about stuff we love.
Ok, there maybe little bit of venting, but actually this is quite a nice topic.
Happy “Knowledge Base” day 😉

16 – Alternative revenue streams for freelancers with Davinder Singh Kainth

Today we talk about multiple income streams with Davinder Singh Kainth. Many will know Davinder from his ProBeaver site, weekly newsletter and tireless support in the Beaver Builder Facebook Group.

15 – How to stop clients ruining your work with Adam Lacey

In this episode we are joined by Adam Lacey from penguinmedia.co.uk. We chat about coping when enthusiastic clients want to exercise their creativity. We ask how much we restrict their role both during and after the website build?

14 – The development of Page Builders with Doug Belchamber

Today we are joined by Doug Belchamber for a chat about the development of page builders. Naturally, we’re huge Beaver Builder fans so this episode is very much inspired by the Alpha release of “Beaver Themer”.

13 – Hani Mourra from Simple Podcast Press plugin

In this, episode 13 of the WP Builds podcast, we take a slightly different direction! We have Hani Mourra on, telling us about his experiences building a WordPress plugin in the podcasting space.

12 – Top five tools that we cannot live without

This week David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the 5 tools that they could not live without.
This is not supposed to be some sensationalist list that makes you want to go out and buy things! Rather, it’s just the tools that we’ve settled upon after trying out quite a few over the years.

11 – The feast and famine cycle of a web developer

In this episode of the WP Builds podcast Nathan Wrigley and David Waumsley talk about the feast / famine cycle of being a freelancer.
Of course, we don’t have the answers, but we we are experimenting with approaches.

10 – Work / Life balance

In this episode of the WP Builds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the subject of work / life balance.
What time of the day do you start work, and what time do you stop? Perhaps you work around your family commitments, or do the family have to work around you?

9 – Promoting a web design business

In this, episode 9 of the WPBuilds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the topic of promoting a web design business. Being the non-experts that they both are, they do some of the things that they talk about. Most of the ideas are things that they’ve heard about, but don’t do!

8 – Shiny new toys

David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley explore the notion of “shiny new things”. This is when you buy things that, perhaps, you don’t need, just because it is new and you don’t have it!
We find out that Nathan is a complete sucker for buying things that he does not need, will not use, and perhaps does not even want.

Lion tamer and liar

I travel, help people make websites and bang on about Beaver Builder on YouTube. I got a silver badge for swimming aged 11.

The designer in me says there should be more words here.
