Learn to Build an Online Store With WordPress

Comments are closed on this post. If you have a question, comment, or other feedback, then please contact me.

Just a little over a month ago, I shared a post in which I attempted to gauge interest about those who are looking for how to build an online store using WordPress.

In the post, I distilled it down to this:

I’m going to walk you through the process of what I did to launch The Pressware Shop and help you avoid the pitfalls that I encountered along the way.

Obviously, this is something that’s a bit niche in that it deals with WordPress and it’s talking about how to sell digital products using the platform; however, I received enough feedback to move forward with the event.

How to Build an Online Store Using WordPress

Earlier this week, I finally launched The Pressware Shop; however, this post doesn’t really have anything to do about that. If you’re interested, you can easily read more about it.

But this has more to do with you and for those of you who are interested in how to build an online store, in getting into selling digital products – specifically through WordPress – but aren’t really sure where to start.

Hanging Out at the WP Dev Table

Comments on the post have been closed. Please see the original post for comments, questions, and more!

Last week, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Bronson Quick and Jason Resnick of the WP Dev Table to talk about a number of different things (all WordPress related, obviously).

All-in-all, it was a blast. I really enjoyed the laid back style of discussion, and Jason and Bronson were great guys to hang out with for an hour or so.

But when you’re doing a Hangout or a podcast it’s not enough just to share that it was “a lot of fun to hang out,” is it?

Featured on the Dispatch Podcast

A couple of weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being a guest on the The Dispatch podcast with Chase Livingston, and Automattician, and Chase Clemens, a support tech at Basecamp, in which I talked about my experience with WordPress – from how to I got to started to what I’m doing now.

The WordPress Weekly Podcast

Last week, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Jeff Chandler and Sarah Gooding of WP Tavern on the WordPress Weekly Podcast.

We talked about WordPress – naturally – various headlines in the WordPress community, remote working, and some other fun topics.

Planning For 2014 WordPress Courses

As we enter the final two months of the year, one of the things that I like to do is take time to look back at some of the things I set out to accomplish in January, evaluate what I’ve done – for better or worse – and then begin making plans for the coming year.

One of the things that I did this year that I really enjoyed was host a course aimed at helping you to improve your WordPress development skills.

Overall, the course had a greater turn out than I was expecting, resulted in some good conversation in our back channel, and also seeded some great ideas for future courses.

So I was continue to ramp up Pressware, one of the things that I’m looking to do next year is to offer more online courses and material for those who want to improve their WordPress development chops in certain areas.

Late last month, I had the opportunity to be interviewed by Cloudways specifically on the topic of WordPress Development and Performance.
