September 24, 2017| Mike Stott|

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.

It’s that time again. I’m actually almost a week later publishing this transparency report than usual. They take a fair bit of time to put together and as I covered in last months report, I tend to flip between what I’m trying to accomplish through sharing these updates.

As always this report will follow the same structure as the last one.  A reminder though, I write these for me, so I can keep track of where things are up to and what I’ve been working on and plan to work on. If you benefit from reading these too then great. Glad to have you along for the ride.

May 8, 2017| Mike Stott|

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
