John O’Nolan


with John O'Nolan


In Episode #6 of the WP Elevation podcast I spoke with John O’Nolan from Ghost. I had just landed in the Netherlands after 30 hours of flights and transit from Melbourne as I was preparing for WordCamp Europe. For those of you who don’t know, John is a freelance web designer from the UK who once worked on the UI team for WordPress and recently launched Ghost, just a blogging platform, out of frustration with WordPress.
