Bio

Brian K. Johnson a.k.a. BKJ Productions.
I’ve been using WordPress as a CMS since 2.1, and have developed a number of plugins for inhouse use. At our shop we specialize in small- and medium-sized businesses, providing design and programming support for a wide range of projects.

Interests

WordPress. Is there anything else?

OK, well, then: bicycling, art, films with subtitles, hiking

WordPress Origin Story

I had a really young guy working for me, fresh out of high school, who suggested we try using WordPress for a project, rather than what we’d been doing before (hand-coding a bunch of HTML). It was a bit bumpy at first, but then it worked great! Flirted briefly with Drupal for a few months, but ended up doing in WordPress in just two days what I’d spent two months doing in Drupal.
