Q&A with Davinder Singh Kainth of The WP Weekly & WP Awards

Davinder Singh Kainth launched in  The WP Weekly in July 2020. It quickly picked up steam as there were few newsletters like this one. The newsletter was published online but sent in an email with action-packed, quick-hitting tidbits of info and news. Since then Kainth has published over 75 issues of one of the most popular WordPress newsletters. Late in 2021, Davinder got the idea to host awards in the WordPress spaced based on votes by the community. He launched The WP Awards using his newsletter as a platform. Recently, I asked Davinder Singh Kainth to reflect on the newsletter

Nurturing a community that works for everyone

Years ago, a friend was preaching a sermon about community and one thing that stood out to me was that community and communication come from the same word. It was one of those “light bulb” moments for me. I never forgot that. We often throw around community in our industry, but few think about what it takes to get there. Communication. It is the center of any community. Think about it. To have a community, there need to be conversations like we have in Slack or Circle rooms, etc. How many of those are you a part of? Communities come

We looked into it and it was actually Kris Kringle. Yes, THAT Kris Kringle! The one and only Santa Claus.

What are some reasons we do a year in review? First, I often find I am surprised to learn some kind of pattern or trend that has happened. It can allow you to double down on the things that are working

Q&A With WordPress power couple Cate & Topher DeRosia of HeroPress

Somewhere along the way –I can’t say when– I ran across the HeroPress website. As you all know, I really like stories and the telling of overcoming adversity. HeroPress tells those stories, so I was immediately attracted to the platform. Over the past several years I have been fortunate enough to meet Topher and Cate (virtually) DeRosia, the couple behind HeroPress. I have worked with them in various settings. In the past few months, HeroPress expanded with new projects and looking to be a bigger player in the WordPress space. HeroPress has been around for about six years now. Originally,
