About LayerWP & me.

Who am I? Why should you trust me?

Hey, I'm Ben 👋

I’ve been using WordPress for what seems like forever. I’m an avid writer by choice, not a necessity, and I love creating content about WordPress, whether it’s how-to’s, reviews, or general opinions.

It’s my go-to platform for building websites, whether personal projects, sites for friends or family, and obviously in creating LayerWP. Some have even said they love how I put things together. Thanks, Mum.

I love being different

There is a wealth of WordPress blogs about WordPress on the web, some better than others. Why bother reading what I put out there? I’ll be honest; I’m different and don’t follow any hard and fast-set rules. LayerWP is a place to share my experiences, whether 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; I’ll tell you if something is wrong or I don’t like it.

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

Reasons for reading LayerWP

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 several WordPress businesses. Below are some top-notch companies I’ve written for; there are more, but NDAs are lovely things.

DesignFrame Solutions

Easy to follow, informative, and no fluff.

Easy to understand​

I write in an easy-to-understand way, ensuring the content, whether a guide or review, is written in a way that benefits you.

Based on my findings, I am helping you learn something new or by helping you decide on whether a plugin/theme or service is suitable for your needs.

Tips & tutorials

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.

No allegiance

I don’t recommend specific themes or plugins all the time. I like to mix things up and try new WordPress products.

The world would be boring if it were always the same old same old plugins and themes getting a mention.
