WPWatercooler Live at 11AM Mondays Recap


Since the first show aired on YouTube on September 24, 2012, Jason Tucker’s and Chris Lema’s WPWatercooler has brought together 10 different WordPress Web Developers and Designers for a weekly Google Hangout to chat about interesting and relevant WordPress topics. I have been on most shows since the beginning, along with some of the other members of the Orange County WordPress Meetup: Steve Zehngut, Se Reed, Chris Lema, Jason Tucker. There is an archive of past episodes at http://www.wpwatercooler.com/ as well as on YouTube and iTunes Podcast. The show has over 1.25 million views since it’s inception on YouTube, and has become quite the buzz around WordCamps.

This week’s episode topic was on Picking your money-making WordPress theme, which boiled down to if you want to make money with your website, you will have to be willing to put up some money into building your website, or be happy with lower cost alternatives that do not allow the flexibilty of a developer. I brought up budget as the biggest concern when creating a new site, so we ranted for a little about the unrealistic expectations that clients sometimes have for the amount of budgeting and we talked about the famous $300 site.

If you will have access to the internet tonight at 6pm, check out tonight’s Orange County’s WordPress Developer Meetup streamed live here, also by Jason Tucker. There is always a full agenda with a lot of great info from talented WordPress developers, so check it out. Also, follow along on twitter under the hashtag #ocwp if you like. 🙂
