November 27, 2016| Mike Stott|

What. What is this? Another transparency report for November 2016 being written before the end of November? What… well the main reason for yet another early report is so I can clear my plate for the 1st December 2016 launch of the Epic Blogger Theme.

12 WordPress Themes – Month 1. Week 3. Report

November 17, 2016| Mike Stott|

Just three weeks ago I started a challenge. A challenge to develop, market and launch 12 WordPress Themes in 12 Months. That’s one a month for a full year. Each theme being different. Each theme building on the code from the earlier theme.

WordPress Developers. How I FAILED to hire.

OK. Disclaimer. I found some pretty good developers from this process. BUT it took me longer than it should have. You may have read in the latest transparency report that I was on the look out for WordPress Developers to join my web agency.

November 13, 2016| Mike Stott|

It’s the end of week 2. It’s creeping up to the point where the first theme will be almost ready to be released. A lot of time this week has been spent setting the scene. Reaching out to Outreach partners and spending time being interviewed and getting content prepared for various sites.

WordPress Plugins and Themes. Where to promote your products

November 4, 2016| Mike Stott|

As part of my challenge to develop 12 WordPress Themes in 12 Months I came across the need to build up a central repository of websites where you can promote WordPress products. That’s been my mini project for this week. Put together an online resource that I can add to. A resource that will become useful as the development project continues and starts to gather momentum.

Why I’m saying NO to Freelance

November 1, 2016| Mike Stott|

Happy November everyone. I can’t believe how quick this year has gone. I left my job at the end of July. So a full 3 months has passed with me doing my own thing. Quite a lot of my ‘own thing’ has been doing freelance for others.
