New challenges

A short while about (July to be exact) I published a post about why I got into software development. At the time I was dealing with a bit of a personal crisis. I had reached a point (for the second time) of burning the candles at both ends so much that I was probably not thinking straight. So I had this daft idea to launch a Patreon account to try and crowd fund my goals. No prizes for guessing how that turned out.

What that post did however do for me is define why and more importantly how I want to make my living as a freelance developer. It also helped me realise that perhaps the tools I need to be using are out there and I just need to take the proverbial bull by the horns. So, with that in mind, I am very happy to announce that I am, as of September, one of the newest experts at Codeable.

If you have never heard of Codeable, it is the worlds #1 WordPress specific outsourcing platform. The founders, Per and Tomaz, are WordPress experts themselves and their business model and making huge inroads into bringing expert WordPress developers in contact with realistic clients who appreciate and understand the value of paying a fair price for excellent work. I’m happy to say that I’ve already completed my first few tasks at Codeable and collected a couple of great reviews.

Working at Codeable does mean that (for now at least) I have a little less free time for blog writing and replying to comments. If you were one of the people who commented on my articles during September, this is where I apologise for my lack of replies. Going forward I’m going to try and focus on publishing at least one web development specific blog post a month, so bear with me. I don’t have an army of writers like the guys at Elegant Themes.

Oh, and if you want to hire me to work on your project, just use the ‘Hire Me’ link over on the menu.
