Kicking off our first ever Week in WordPress roundtable talk today!
We were met with a few technical challenges, but all in all, I’d say we’re off to a good start. If you’re looking for a healthy dose of weekly WordPress headlines, be sure to tune in every Friday.
On to the show!
Let’s setup the scene:
You’re a developer or designer working on your local machine, building the next latest and greatest WordPress website. You’ve made all of the last minute client adjustments and you’re ready to take it live.
Now the pain begins.
We have a lot to report in this week’s WeekPress WordPress recap!
Many great things are happening in the WordPress community and our team is set to participate in the local event happening tomorrow.
Grab your iced latte, sit back, and recap this week in WordPress.
After months and months of hard work, we’re extremely proud to announce the launch of our premium WordPress Law Theme, as seen on the brand-new website for the Law Office of Matthew Swanson.
Matthew came to Slocum Design Studio prior to the launch of his new law firm, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. At SDS, we’ve been hard at work on a new line of premium WordPress themes, including the Law Theme used on Matthew Swanson’s site.

We’ve all got our new years resolutions, and 8 times out of 10 they’re all health driven. “Gotta hit that gym up this year! I’m going to get in shape!” And to be honest, that was my resolution for 2011 (and I’m still going strong!), but in 2012 I’ve devised a much more important resolution for myself: Become a better designer. As a designer, I’ve never stopped learning and advancing my craft, but sometimes I get so incredibly busy with projects I never have time to experiment, create new styles, and really push myself to create something incredible.
The design community (the web design community) that I’ve been involved with since the beginning of my career is unlike any other community in any other industry I’ve ever witnessed. While many of us compete with each other on a global scale, there is no shortage of kindness, assistance, and appreciation for each other (in most regards). Many individuals like Orman Clark, Rich Hemsley, and Kyle Bragger (just to name a few) have literally dedicated a good portion of their career to creating sites or communities that provide free resources for designers and developers to use, and even gather feedback from other people in their field to assist them. How many times have you seen a general contractor give tips to his/her competitor for free? Let alone at all?
Today is a very busy day for us!
We’re proud to announce the launch of our new web site and start our first South Coast WordPress meet up.

I could not be happier with the hard work my team has put into the design and development of this new site and I’m excited to get you’re feedback on how it looks!
