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.
We're giving away a copy of John's favourite book at the moment "The Year Without Pants", Scott Berkun's story of working at WordPress.com for a year. Watch the interview to learn how to enter.
Congratulations Chris! John has chosen you as the lucky winner of the competition! Thanks for your contribution and keep elevating! (October 2013).
John talks about how he tested the idea for Ghost with a simple blog post that went viral and how he managed to pull off a kickstarter campaign that landed him almost £200K in startup funding.
John suggested I interview [GUEST SUGGESTION AND WHO THEY ARE]. [GUEST SUGGESTION], keep your eyes on your inbox.
