Who Is BobWP?

I create content. A lot of that is our three podcasts as well as our four sites. I do that here as well. It’s just all about WooCommerce community and news.

A Bit About Bob

As I kid, I never wanted to be a blogger or podcaster. I guess that makes sense, since neither came around for quite sometime.  But I did dream of writing, along with designing cars, becoming a zoologist, and about a dozen other random, unrelated careers. And sometimes I feel I missed my true calling, a wildlife photographer.

When I touched my first computer, I was hooked, in an odd sort of way. That was a Radio Shack TRS 80 via the early 1980’s. I dabbled in programming until I realized it was just a notch above living with a chronic, nagging pain. Eventually I became an Apple boy and started to teach myself graphic design.

When Judy and I expanded our business into a marketing firm, web site design became an important skill. I struggled with it and started looking for something a little easier than working in HTML.

Entering the eCommerce Space

During this time eCommerce crept into my life. My first endeavor was in 2004 with a stock photography site. It was an interesting experience and I will just leave it at that.

In 2007 I began to dabble in WordPress and by 2008, I knew it was the perfect solution for me and my clients. We dove back into eCommerce a bit more by starting an membership site in 2008 as well, a time before membership sites really were catching on. And obviously with the technology nowhere at where it is today, it took us a good 9 months to develop the site.

And when WooCommerce was released in 2011, eCommerce became a bigger part of my life.

The rest is history, as they say.

We have taught and written a lot about WooCommerce. We have used it on our sites for various reasons over the years. Today, we are focusing on the people who make up this community called WooCommerce. We want to share with you their thoughts, what they are doing and what cool things they bring to the table.

So it’s simple. I’m BobWP and I want to help the WooCommerce community learn and connect.
