I'm Lisa Sabin-Wilson co-owner of WebDevStudios. Ask Me Anything!Oct. 7, 2015
Thank you to ManageWP for having me here for AMA today - I've never actually done one of these, so looking forward to it!
I'm Lisa Sabin-Wilson and am the co-owner and Chief Operating Officer at WebDevStudios, a WordPress agency specializing in custom website design and development. At WebDev, we mainly work with enterprise level clients who are using WordPress to publish content on the web. Clients like Microsoft, Discovery Channel, Uber and MSNBC, to name a few. I'm excited about the work that we're doing at WebDev.
I'm also the author of several books on the topic of our favored CMS, design and web development - WordPress For Dummies is my most popular title and I've been writing and updating that book since 2007; my other books are WordPress focused as well: WordPress All In One and WordPress Web Design. In 2009, I published BuddyPress For Dummies, as well - but that title is no longer an active one (and it's very, very outdated). I do a bit of public speaking at conferences on the topics of WordPress, Business Development and Design.
I joined WebDev in 2012, but prior to that I ran my own small freelance company called eWebscapes where I did much of the same type of work I'm doing now: custom websites for clients, all powered by WordPress. I've been using WordPress since 2003 and all of my skills around WordPress and design have been self-taught and picked up through trial and error (and a lot of destruction!)
I live in Wisconsin and I'm a true fan of Packers football (green and gold 'till I'm dead and cold!). When I'm not at my computer working, I like to spend free time with my family, gardening in the spring/summer and do a bit of skiing in the winter (but mostly watching football or attending games at Lambeau Field in Green Bay!)
I'll be available for the next several hours to ask questions, so Ask me Anything!
