Hi I’m Ben.

I’m a nocoder, and love making sites with WordPress. I also blog about it, for users.

I’ve written some things.

I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have written for some leading names in WordPress. Truly blessed, I’ve had a lot of fun creating content for a number of WordPress businesses.

Projects I’m working on

I like keeping busy, and making sites using WordPress, here’s some of the projects I have on the go.

All nocode, and only possible because of awesome WordPress developers. 


Still in its infancy, this puppy will be a service for WordPress makers. Video feedback on plugins and themes, giving a user insight into their product. A paid for service, hey I’ve got to eat!


A personal project for me. A way to highlight plugins, podcasts and newsletters of interest. Focusing on WordPress, launching at the end of October 2021.


I’ve always been intrigued by links in bio services, so working on one! Obviously using WordPress, and nocode. Will be ready when it’s ready! Also a paid for service, and a way for me to learn new things.

What do readers think of LayerWP?

I could blow my own horn, but I value my readers’ opinions. It pushes me forwards and keeps me going, so to answer the question, here’s what readers think of my little slice of the internet.


“I have to admit… LayerWP is not your typical WordPress blog. If most blogs want to sell you the Sun and the Moon, LayerWP is focusing on education and transparency. If you want to start a business based on WordPress, or just want to learn more about WordPress, you’re in the right spot.”

Mihai Iova – Owner of SliceWP


“LayerWP is one of my favorite WordPress review blogs. It offers no-BS WordPress reviews and entertaining content which is unique in the WordPress space. I highly recommend bookmarking and visiting this website often.”

Nat Miletic – Owner of Clio Websites


“LayerWP profoundly stands out in providing precise use case information about WordPress products for informed decision making to fit specific WordPress goodness in your web agency or freelancer life!”

Davinder Singh Kainth – Owner of The WP Weekly.

Aaron Bowie

It’s not very often within the WP space we have a blog that offers no-BS! It’s a breath of fresh air not having to read “top 10 bla bla” posts. LayerWP level of trust, transparency, and openness is something others should be aiming for.

Aaron Bowie – Founder and CEO of We are AG

“Honest reviews aren’t always the norm in WordPress. Ben has made it his mission to fix that. LayerWP is an excellent source of honest, fair reviews of WordPress plugins that won’t steer you wrong.”

Chris Wiegman – Owner of chriswiegman.com

Simon Harper

Layer WP is an honest WordPress blog that focuses on providing end-users with authentic reviews and tutorials. An absence of bias, no hidden agendas and the presence of integrity makes LayerWP a rare resource that you can trust for your WordPress needs.
