2014, Opportunity Loss

I hoped to write a “2014 Review” post last Thursday (the 1st) but I took the family to Knott’s instead — balance, ‘m I right? Honestly, I had plenty of time to write this post, it’s not like I didn’t know how things were going weeks before. The real problem wasn’t time, it’s that while I have […]

Transitioning from Services to Products is Hard

When writing my travel+productivity woes I found myself thinking about reevaluating what I deemed as a “product day”. In the past I could easily look back at the end of the day (or week) and see something tangible to judge. Even without billable hours to evaluate, I could look at the functionality/features/code I created and judge progress and easily […]

EDD Recurring Payments & Discounts: Solution

As a follow to my EDD Recurring Payments & Discounts: Proposal I’d like to share my solution. Let me set this up for you first. Here’s the pricing options for Sprout Invoices. Note: the customer pays the “Signup Fee” and the “Price” initially, I’ve written about a proposal to change this already. The discount is for 25% off […]

EDD Recurring Payments & Discounts: Proposal

Pricing a premium plugin is hard. I’ve written publicly about the multiple pricing options for Sprout Invoices and after this weekend at WordCamp LAX talking to a lot of great people, I’ve already concluded improvements to streamline and simplify purchasing are needed. However, the pricing structure won’t change anytime soon, even if EDD discount codes don’t like it. For the upcoming WordCamp and WPAPPStore promotions I need to […]

Add a NinjaDemo Form on External Domain

At Sprout Apps we’re going to be using the awesome NinjaDemo plugin but we wanted to allow for a demo to be created without directing them to the bland demo site running Twenty Twelve :). Here’s the solution I came up with: Add some AJAX handlers on the WPMU demo site running NinjaDemo. I wish […]

Catching up in the WordPress Community

I have been releasing plugins and themes since the early days (~1.0) and I’ve been doing professional WordPress development for 6 years, but I only recently realized that I’ve become out of loop with the WP community. There’s so many new sub-groups: premium sellers, WP agencies and a ton of shops. Looking back (beyond 6 years ago) I fit into a few […]

Jumping Head First into the Unknown WordPress Project

For the last several years I’ve working hard, head down developing and supporting Smart eCart (formally GBS) . Recently I’ve moved away from working full-time on that project but found myself without a clear direction as to what was next. I contemplating getting back into full-time freelancing web development; for a stretch I was toying with getting a “real job” […]
