About LayerWP

Who Am I?​ Well. my names Ben, I’ve been using WordPress for what seems like forever. 

I’m an avid writer by choice, not by necessity, and love creating content about WordPress, whether it’s how-to’s, reviews, or general opinion. 

It’s my go-to platform for building websites, whether it’s personal projects, sites for friends or family, and obviously in the creation of layerwp.com.

Some have even said they love how I put things together. Thanks, Mum.

About LayerWP & Me

Easy to follow, informative, no fluff.

Easy to understand​

I write in an easy to understand way, making sure the content, whether it’s a guide or review is written in a way that benefits you.

Either by helping you learn something new or by helping you decide on whether a plugin/theme or service is right for your needs based on my findings.

Not a coder​

Don’t expect in-depth articles on coding or anything like that. Not because I don’t want to you understand, I’m not a coder, and I’d be lying if I said I was.

The last thing I want to do is mislead you, so if you’re looking for coding tips, etc., I’m not for you.

Reviews & tutorials​

If, however, you like an in-depth tutorial, maybe a review of a theme/plugin or a service, then welcome. I’ll do my best by you.

All reviews and tutorials are written with you in mind. I review the good and the bad, arming you with enough info to make the right choice.

Reasons to read LayerWP

There is a wealth of WordPress blogs about WordPress on the web, some better than others. Why bother reading what I put out there?

Well, I’ll be honest; I’m different; I don’t follow any hard and fast set rules. LayerWP is a place for me to share my experiences, whether that’s from performing reviews, giving tutorials, or a general opinion piece.

I tell it like it is. Yup, I do. If I review a WordPress theme or plugin/service, I’ll give you an honest verdict based on my experience. No bluff, if there’s something wrong or something I didn’t like, I’ll tell you.

If it’s excellent, I’ll tell you. I have no allegiance to anyone, which means I can be impartial and offer a truthful account of a WordPress product.

One that I hope will aid you in whether or not you want to purchase the product in question or install the theme/plugin if it’s free.
