Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Another new start

Free IQ - The Marketplace for Ideas

About two weeks ago, I started a new job (which explains at least part of my blogging lull, you see). I’m working on Free IQ, which is a streaming media site for entrepreneurs. There’s more to it than just the streaming media (you can upload video, audio, PDF files, PowerPoint presentations, etc.), but I’m still learning the ins and outs, so I don’t know the full scope yet.

When I interviewed, they were favorably impressed by the fact that I’m a WordPress developer. This is something that our industry is seeing more and more of — involvement in open source projects is often a good selling point in your resume. Several people have come by to ask me WordPress questions, and more than once I’ve been asked, “you’re the WordPress guy, right?” I haven’t actually done anything WP-related, yet, but I think that might come down the pipe one day.

    Congrats on the Job … WordPress is a killer app, so being referred to as the “WordPress Guy” I would consider an honor ;)

    I wish you the best with your new opportunity. Is there a way to prevent psuedo-wordpress posts from showing up when one logs into their blog admin?

  9. Hi Doug
    I’ve been blogging now for a month and a half. I’ve been wanting to change the look of my site and I have no idea where to start when I go into the section, I think it’s called, ‘Change the appearance of your site’. I would like to change it to look similar to Wifeinthenorth.com or like yours. I love your background colour and the font and size. I really cannot figure out how to do it. There seems to be so much information and when I choose the site I think I want, nothing seems to happen, except further information on widgets and wikis etc etc. Is there any advise you can give to someone similar to the books ‘…..for dummies’?
    Thank you. P.s. I think the email I set up with this is grainneoka@gmail.com
