Show Notes

Like a lot of entrepreneurs, I'm constantly filled with self-doubt.

Will this experiment work? Can I make it a sustainable publication?

There aren't that many people who _care_ about WordPress news, let alone care to contribute to it. This is a topic I unpacked in my interview with Kim Coleman on funding a WordPress news website. So many have come and gone in this space -- I can see why.

I am grateful, however, when folks like Eric Karkovack step up to become contributors. I'm enjoying his series about the impact WordPress is having on freelancers:

Part 1: What does Full Site Editing mean for freelancers?

Part 2: Is WordPress pushing freelancers away? (published today)

You'll get to hear Eric in today's short interview. If you're interested in becoming a contributor of content, please reach out to me.
