LoopConf, My Amazon Addiction, and Building WP Site Care
I’ve been getting around a little bit lately. I’ve been invited to be on a few podcasts (they ran out of other candidates apparently), and figured this blog would be as good of a place as any to share them with you. I actually really enjoy being on podcasts, so if you run a podcast, and are also out of other potential guests, hit me up on Twitter and we’ll get it scheduled.
On the DradCast I talked about LoopConf, the WordPress developer conference that’s happening in 2 weeks, that I also happen to co-organize. It’s going to be a stellar event and I’m finally getting to the point where I can start getting excited about it.
I also talk about how WordPress Support isn’t a lifestyle business, because it most definitely isn’t. Support is really hard some days, and definitely not something you’re going to be doing while sipping mojitos on a beach somewhere.
Full episode is below, and you can check out the audio only version and the show notes on the DradCast site.
Tech Douchbags is a twelve step program to help technology snobs that’s disguised as a podcast. My friend Jordan Cooper invited me to be a guest and I have to admit, things got painfully real. I had to admit to the world that I’m a Subscribaholic, and that I have a dependency on having Amazon deliveries made to my house on a consistent basis.
We also brainstormed a few pretty sweet startup ideas, that you’ll definitely want to hear about (or not). Check out The Subscribaholic on the 5by5 Network and download or listen to it here.
A lot of you may be familiar with Troy Dean. He invited me to be a guest a while back and I never really shared the interview formally. If you’re a freelancer looking to get into small business or startup mode, some of the stuff I shared will hopefully be helpful.
I talked with him about my transition from freelancer to growing a team, and how that whole process went down. I think it’s a pretty different process when you already have health insurance, a 401K, etc., not to mention 3 kids. It can be daunting but it’s totally possible (still here over 2 years later). If you’d rather read the transcripts or download the audio you can do that at WP Elevation.
That’s all I had to share for today. Just wanted to get all of those organized in the same place. Hopefully there’s something I said that sparks some interest or a fun conversation along the way. If you’re a podcaster and you’re looking for guests for your show, I really like chatting with cool people, so feel free to hit me up whenever you’d like.
