Interviewed By Erik Ford

Late last month, Erik Ford of Pixel8 contacted me about doing an interview for his blog.

Since I enjoy getting to know other people in the design and development space, and am always humbled when approached to do the same, I obliged.

In the interview, appropriate titled 5 Questions with Tom McFarlin, I answered the following questions:

  1. How would you describe what you do and how did you get your start?
  2. What obstacles, if any, did you encounter starting out and how did you overcome them?
  3. What would be the first piece of advice you would give someone interested in building sites and software for others using WordPress?
  4. When not building sites and software for others using WordPress, what else occupies your time?
  5. What is the one thing you cannot live without?

During the course of the interview, I also talk about some of the challenges of self-employment, the fun of working with a team, and how I got started in doing what I do.

Be sure to check it out, and thanks to Erik for inviting me to participate!
