But, in the wrong hands, the phone can be a scary thing that wastes your time and causes you stress and anxiety. See what we think…

109 - What changed in 2018 and what is coming in 2019

Happy New Year 2019! In this episode of the WP Builds WordPress podcast we take a bit of a look back at some of the things that we thought we important in 2018. Now I don’t mean to imply that David and myself have any special insight here, it’s just what occurred to us as important for 2018 and the way that we use WordPress. Some of this might not seem all that important to you, and undoubtedly we’ve missed a whole bunch of stuff out, but hey, you never came here for expertise did you!

108 – Make your blog posts work harder for you with Ben Dell from Missinglettr

108 - Make your blog posts work harder for you with Ben Dell from Missinglettr

Today we have an episode that deals with something very dear to my heart, writing blog posts – like this one! One of the problems that I have is that I write a post like this in WordPress and then publish it. It goes onto the website and I hope that people like you will read it and listen to the podcast episode. However, we’re all busy people these days and it might be that you miss this post. I could roll over and accept that you’ve missed my wonderful content, or I could try to make sure that you see it at some point in the future. That’s what Ben Dell’s SaaS app, Missinglettr, does…

107 – The top 5 reasons why we are web designers

107 - The top 5 reasons why we are web designers

This episode is a little bit of a departure for us as it was inspired by the people in the WP Builds Facebook group (which you should join BTW). It is all based upon a in which David asked the simple question, “What’s the one thing you love about building client websites?” Well, I think that both of us thought that this might get one or two comments, but in fact they poured in – 119 of them at the last count. It was really wonderful to read all of the varied things that you love about the work that we all do. We’ve got a lot to be grateful for, woking as we do building websites with WordPress.

105 – Rebecca Gill and her amazing life; flourishing from adversity

105 - Rebecca Gill and her amazing life

This is a little bit of a departure for us today because we take a deep dive into the life of our guest – Rebecca Gill. Typically on the podcast we chat about plugins and themes and talk to developers about their ideas and their code. Not today, well not just that today! Today we listen to the story of how life has shaped Rebecca, and I can tell you that so much has happened to her that it’s amazing that she’s still able to get up in the morning. Many people faced with a poor start never recover from it, but others seem to be able to rise above it, they have a tenacity that enables them to keep going, to take charge of their own destiny and to flourish. Rebecca chose to flourish. Find out how…

104 – UX… What on earth is it?

104 - UX... What on earth is it?

We talk to Paul Lacey and discuss with him what UI is. Both David and I work as independent freelancers and this means that we have a process that has worked for us over time. Paul however is part of a growing agency called DickieBirds and this means that he has to think about all this more than we do. It’s a wide ranging discussion which might resonate with you if you are working with WordPress to create client sites. We know that other people who are really successful follow a whole bunch of processes which makes their life easier. I don’t, but Paul does, so listen in…
