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.
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.
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.
