JONATHAN DENWOOD is an entrepreneur, PHP developer and WordPress coach. After selling his successful dry cleaning business in England, Jonathan moved to the United States and now calls Reno, Nevada home. With a strong passion for art, his education, his studies in technology and computers, it was only a matter of time until Jonathan would start his own internet consultant and WordPress website design company, Digital Delirium. The company focuses on the small to medium sized businesses. Jonathan also has a podcast, WP-Tonic.Com with yours truly as cohost. On WP-Tonic I look at the business application side and Jonathan teaches us the tech side of WordPress.
BLUF: Manage Expectations To build up content with SEO takes longer than you think. It is not easy.
BOTTOM LINE UP FRONT QUESTIONS:
- Are you a MAC or PC? MAC (has nothing against the PC but would never go back). It is the quality of the third party software that makes the MAC
- What is your favorite technology, hardware or software? CSS and PHP, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document on the web. While PHP once stood for Personal Home Page, it now stands: Hypertext Preprocessor, server-side scripting language designed for web development and used in WordPress.
- What is your favorite quote? The Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln
- What are your favorite books? Like to listen to audiobooks while he coding and right now the book Lincoln
- What is the best advice you have ever received? Don’t give up but anything worth achieving is normally much harder to do than it seems to be.
BIGGEST TAKEAWAY: There are enormous opportunities but there is an enormous amount to learn but the good news is there are an enormous amount of learning resources available online websites, though meetups, podcast and new media.
OTHER THOUGHTS: Tonight as I was running, I was listening to Michael Hyatt show “This is Your Life” Episode 3 and one of his points on that podcast is that things always take longer than you think. He talks about how he never give himself enough time. Jonathan is always telling me to remember that web development always takes longer than you think…. this is so true and so does creating a great podcast.
