Minti it looks like you’re doing quite well just off of your one theme for the past few months
What I’ve learned this year is that if you can keep the themes coming, you can depend on steady sales. I’ve consistently made more each month and I keep release more themes. I’ve been freelancing full time, 9 to 5, 5 days a week for the past 3 years and just recently (this past April) completed my last client project to focus on TF full time. I have a home office (away from all distractions) and I’ve made it clear to my family to treat it as if I am not here.
As far as being “part of something you can’t control” – You can say that about any job. People lose their jobs all the time, companies go under, freelancers have trouble finding new projects… At least here you know things won’t dry up over night. There’s not going to be a day where we all wake up to find WP is obsolete. Ride it out month to month, watch the numbers, and keep releasing themes. I feel more stable now than I did at my full time job years ago or while I was freelancing.
Listened to the latest podcast last night. You guys have terrific chemistry. Can you guys announce your names at the beginning of the next episode? I know when Jake speaks, but can’t tell who’s who between Chris and Mike. I’d like to know which one is the “dry humor” guy who makes me piss my pants
You know when I speak because of my sexy radio voice, right?
I have a Bachelor of Arts – Majored in Film… Now I make websites…
I’m with @epicera – I don’t regret my time in college, but for the industry we’re in it was completely unnecessary. I could have not gone or gone to much cheaper school.
duplicate post – staff please delete!
Just fixed the audio levels on Episode 02.
I think we have a better system for this now. =)
If you have dropbox this guy could work for you: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-backup-to-dropbox/
I’m with @kops. I use Backupbuddy and it’s pretty awesome. Also makes migrating a snap.
I hope Envato does more of these more often and spreads them around the country/globe. With staff all over, that should be feasible, right?
