Bio/Description

I give businesses web solutions. Web design and development. Pretty boring stuff.

WordPress Origin Story

Oh boy. Long story.

I decided to make a web development business in 2012. During my research and early phase, I was building static sites. I heard A LOT about WordPress though, so I eventually took a look at it. I was totally clueless and overwhelmed by it all because one of the 1st things I did was look up theme creation and had no idea about the WordPress loop and the theming structure of WordPress.

I eventually started figuring things out and packaging WordPress with my sites to present to clients so that they could edit their site.

My breakthrough point was when I decided to make my own theme. This was for a Hawaii blog (thehawaiiplan.com). I started out with a responsive theme (Skeleton for WP) and I just totally dissected it. Learned about making child themes, the theming structure of WordPress (which is actually one of the loveliest things about developing with WP, the loop, custom post types, creating your own meta fields, and also grid systems.

With the ability to make custom themes, the ability to cater the admin GUI to my clients, the ability to speed up production using plugins, and because Auttomatic is so keen on updating WordPress, I have to say that WordPress is truly a great platform to work with. It’s not perfect, but at only 3.9 versions, WordPress could very well be perfect one day.
