Transparency report #9 – Dec 2016

January 2, 2017 |

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.

Epic Timeline Theme – Coming Soon

December 18, 2016 |

Well. It’s the end of the third week, second month. Time has been flying this month. It’s the run up to Christmas and nothing is better than building a theme specifically to act as a timeline. So coming soon is the amazing Epic Timeline Theme. This theme is the second theme in the 12 WordPress Themes in 12 Months challenge.

12 WordPress Themes – Theme 1 Debrief

December 7, 2016 |

The first theme in the 12 WordPress Themes in 12 Months challenge was launched last week. This followed a 4 week process of coming up with the idea of what to create. Building up the websites which we reach out to about the themes . We also created Outreach List WP – a directory of places to promote your WordPress products.

Subscriber loyalty rewards

December 5, 2016 |

You may have seen on the blog that at the end of October 2016 we moved to a subscriptions system for our plugins and themes. If you didn’t catch that post you can read it here. Up to date? Great. The subscriptions system is a way of making it easier for you to get the latest updates and support for your plugin and theme.  

Transparency report #8 – Nov 2016

November 27, 2016 |

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 |

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.

November 15, 2016 |

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.

12 WordPress Themes – Month 1. Week 2. Report

November 13, 2016 |

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.
