My team at Lift was very privileged to be able to work on this project for AMC Networks® back in 2012. Second screen experiences are now the de facto standard for television shows across the board. I’m proud to say that we were able to influence this space heavily and also work with shows we were actually invested in.
I had the privilege of chatting with Carrie, Suzette, Nick, Chris, Jason, and Steve about commercial WordPress themes, which is one of the things I’ve been writing about on my blog lately. Watch the episode below and make sure to subscribe to WP Watercooler here.
This post is a response to Chris Lema’s post titled, “Four mistakes WordPress theme vendors make.” Chris makes some fantastic points about theme companies that I must reiterate here and also expound upon.
If you hire people just because they can do a job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood and sweat and tears.

Many years ago, I released design assets and WordPress themes for free (yes, free!) to an audience of designers and developers alike. Since rebooting my blog, I’ve since killed nearly all my traffic since these posts no longer exist and many inbound links are being 301 redirected to my homepage. It’d be way cooler if people searching for these things found them, so the tweeties are making a reemergence as the best free twittery birds on the market! I have always and will always maintain a Creative Commons license on these bad boys and if you’d like to discuss a commercial license without attribution, feel free to contact me to discuss.

At Lift, we have an unlimited vacation and sick day policy. To most people, the immediate reaction is, “I wish my company offered unlimited vacation.” To others, their intense jealousy offers another opinion, “you could never take ‘unlimited’ vacation days. You’d get fired.” Read more
I made a guest appearance on the WPBacon podcast on June 12th along with Brian Gardner, Drew Strojny, and Stephen Cronin to talk about WordPress themes and where we think things are headed. It was a fantastic group to discuss the topic and I think it’s a valuable video for anyone making, selling or really using commercial WordPress themes. Take a peek below:
