Faces of WordPress: Stanley Straughter

How were you first introduced to WordPress?
My wife has been a blogger for a few years and she used WordPress. She introduced me to WordPress when she first started, but I began paying attention last year.

What do you like about it?
I like the plugins and the community. I also like that it’s not difficult to get assistance if you have a particular issue.

What do you do with WP now?
I exclusively use WordPress to build all my websites. I also provide WordPress Site Maintenance and Security.

How as the WP community helped you?
Being friendly and anwering “NewBie” as well as “Difficult” questions.

Did learning WP lead to any significant changes in your life?
Learning WP allowed me to create more complex and dynamic web-sites at a fraction of the cost it used to, because I no longer have to hire programmers. I simply find a 5 Star Plugin that does what I need and put it to work.

What would you tell a new user? A new developer?
It may be difficult at first, but stick with it, there are plenty of people willing to assist you like myself to be successful with the software.

There are so many training classes and tutorials on YouTube and elsewhere to really get you going if you’re willing to invest the time.

Anything else we should know?
I love Music and the Internet, I mean, what else is there?
