GoDaddy Acquires CoBlocks, ThemeBeans and Block Gallery

I’ve made a number of things as a WordPress “maker” — most notably ThemeBeans, CoBlocks, and Block Gallery. My mission and clear focus through building products has always been to deliver a phenomenal WordPress experience. It’s the foundation upon which my career is built.

And while it’s been a fantastic experience so far, it almost feels like I’m just getting started — in such a good way.

Merlin WP 1.0 is Here. Welcome Better Onboarding for WordPress Themes

You have no idea how awesome it feels to finally have the first official version of Merlin WP released. After many months of development, Merlin WP 1.0 is finally here. I first wrote about improving the onboarding experience of WordPress themes late last year, and since publishing the initial beta, Merlin WP has received quite a lot of attention.

Tabor and Gutenberg + WordPress 5.0

I’ve prepared a mild release for Tabor, as part of the first round of WordPress 5.0 updates to my theme catalog at ThemeBeans.

Tabor v1.6.0 is scheduled for release on Tuesday, November 20th, 2018 . A week before WordPress 5.0 is launching to the public. ?

Introducing Block Gallery, a Suite of Beautiful Photo Gallery Blocks

It’s no secret that I’m a huge proponent of Gutenberg, the new block editor to be released next month in WordPress 5.0.

Ever since WordCamp US last year, I’ve been deep into all things Gutenberg, wrapping my head around block development and working on supporting the new editor in all my themes.
