Sometimes I get too focused. I stop growing. I’ve been “head down” for the past several months. After joining Crowd Favorite, I jumped right into several projects. I also moved 800 miles from Texas to Georgia. Moving is both expensive and complex. There are licenses to update, crazy amounts of bills and lots of records […]
Previously, we chose a domain and setup hosting for our site. Now, we’re going to focus on doing some basic setup for our WordPress site and choosing a theme to create the layout and look of our site. WordPress comes pretty well setup out of the box, but there are a few settings that can […]
Long term projects are hard. For instance, at my current job, I’ve been on the same project for almost a year now. I’ve had smaller projects in that time, but for the most part, I’ve been working on our agency’s website redesign for a year. I’ve redeveloped a single page template twelve times. TWELVE. Staying […]
Monday, Jeff Chandler published a post on WP Tavern called, “It’s Time For WordPress to Automatically Update Themes, Plugins, and Core by Default.” I have a huge amount of respect for Jeff and the WP Tavern team. I think they have a great handle on what is going on in the WordPress space and they […]

I attended a meet up last night. To be honest, I wasn’t sure I would go at first. But I felt good and wasn’t as tired as I normally am after work and decided to make the effort. I’m glad I did.
One of my favorite things about WordPress is its community. The community is welcoming, self-regulating, and massive. But it isn’t the only community that I am a part of. I have community at work, at church and across the nation. All of these communities are ones that I invest different levels of time and energy […]
Small groups can be life changing. One of the greatest ways I have found to discover what a church truly values and how well my family and I will do there is how the church approaches small groups.
So over the past few months, perhaps even more than a year now, I’ve watched many people within the WordPress community, even Matt Mullenweg himself, talk about how WordPress, if it is to grow (some have even said survive) has to start competing with applications such as Squarespace and Wix in terms of ease of […]
In case you haven’t been around for the past few months, this year is a major year for WordPress and accessibility. Many of the contributing developers are pushing for improvements across the WordPress ecosystem and a few are even doing things about it.
