You will note the operative word. “Archive“.
Last October when I launched this site it was a combination of moving the podcast and news from BobWP.com and leaving all the Woo tutorials there. The entire decision was based partly on my realization in mid-2020 that after over a decade of writing WordPress and WooCommerce tutorials, I was done. Finished. Burnt out. Been there, done that.
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Do the Woo…
Well, this could be a good joke, but instead, in reality, BobWP.com continued to get traffic, the posts I wrote there continue to educate. All is good. But now I’m at the point where I want to do even more consolidation.
Sure, the focus of this site continues to be the podcast and community of WooCommerce builders. That isn’t changing. I’m just adding something to the site that, is, well, natural.
A Woo Builder Builds
So why am I telling you all of this? Well, I had to tell someone after spending the last few days migrating, redirecting and, yes, editing over 170 posts (yes, and I deleted and redirected over 75 of them that were outdated, didn’t fit, or just taking up space). Sure, most of these are about extensions and plugins, and not code. But builders build. As a beginner builder there is a ton here to get you started. As a experienced builder, yes, you likely still don’t know every extension and plugin out there when you are looking for that special one. I know I don’t. But I will share those solutions I have written about.
And then there’s ….
Traffic. Yes. I figured these two pieces will go hand in hand. My fans of the tuts will hopefully discover the hidden secrets of this community and the podcast. And my listeners may find a gem or two in the blog to help them on that next client project. In other words, consolidate.
And if you are wondering about new content on the blog. Yes, I will still write what I have been writing about (posts like this and other stuff). But I have a group of select people I know and trust who will carry on the traditional tutorial way and keep fresh content coming.
