Transparency Report #19 – October 2017

Last week I published September’s transparency report a little late due a lot of reasons. Today I’m publishing the 19th of these reports covering October’s activity.

In this report I’m covering a lot more about the marketing side of things (and whether it’s worthwhile) as well as WordCamp sponsorships!

17 months after removing all my plugins from CodeCanyon

It’s now 17 months since I removed my plugins for sale on CodeCanyon, it feels like a good time for an update today, but why today.

Well, apart from having some time to write this post, it’s also the last weekend before annual renewals start to trigger – which would mean any comparison would be swayed away by renewal income coming in (and that is worthy of a post in it’s own right!)

Transparency Report #17 – August 2017

Phew, I’m getting slower with publishing these transparency reports.  The start of September has been busy for me since I’ve been moving out of an apartment and had limited access to the internet. However I’m back with the seventeenth report on what’s been going on with Epic Plugins, Epic Themes and Zero BS CRM.

Recap of attending my first WordCamp

It’s been a while coming, but this weekend I managed to make an appearance at my first WordCamp. I attended WordCamp in Edinburgh (#wcedin).

Now, I’m not from Edinburgh, I’m from Manchester, UK (the home of WordPress co-Founder Mike Little) and embarrassingly haven’t attended a local MWUG meet up or WordCamp yet. This boils down to three main reservations…

A Look Into Kinsta Hosting – WordPress at the Speed of Google

I wanted to spend a bit of time going through the hosting providers in a blog series on hosting. There’s so much out there these days that finding the one which is right for you is no mean feat.

Today I took a look into Kinsta Hosting. If you’ve not seen Kinsta recently you must have been living under a rock

Transparency report #12 – Mar 2017

Wow. It’s been a year that i’ve been writing these reports. Time really does fly. I thought what would be useful in this report is to show the years totals as well as the usual figures. March has been a busy month, primarily driven by the massive new release coming of Zero BS CRM (launching in the next few days)

External URL Link as Featured Images

There’s one thing that has been bugging me for a while about WordPress and featured images.

What’s that one thing? It’s how hard it is to set a featured image from an external link.

Mike @ Epic Plugins

It’s 2017 and this still isn’t easy to do. So I wrote a plugin to make this easy for you!

Transparency report #9 – Dec 2016

Wow. 2016 is over. It’s been a great year. There’s been so much going on that I didn’t write my ‘year in review’. This is partly due to the fact I’ve been doing these transparency reports. But also partly due to December just being crazy busy for me.

Last month, there was quite a lot of change. It’s been the first full month of epic plugins and epic themes being under a subscription based pricing model.
