Say Hello To Chip Finklesteinergern A New Writer On LayerWP

Chip Finklesteinergern joins LayerWP
Say hi to Chip.

Running a blog on your own is hard

It’s hard blogging, no two ways about it. As it’s just me writing content for LayerWP, it’s hard to keep going. Until a few days ago. 

Our story begins with an email through my contact page. See below for the contents:

Chip’s Pitch

Hey Ben, 

I’m Chip Finklesteinergern; I’ve been using WordPress for the last 30 odd years and what I don’t know isn’t worth knowing. 

I’m looking to add to my portfolio, and I wondered if you’d be interested in me writing some posts for LayerWP?

WordPress list posts are what I do best, and I’ve created countless list posts for other WordPress blogs; I’ve helped them make serious $$$$, and I’d like to do the same for you. 

Shall we schedule a call? Let me know when you’re free.

I was intrigued, to say the least

So I scheduled a Zoom call. His Zoom background was a little weird, but I didn’t hold it against Chip. His lips didn’t move the whole time; plus he didn’t move one inch, not one. With ventriloquism and being able to sit still for an hour, that’s dedication.

Chip’s ZOOM background was slightly unnerving

I could tell he was passionate, and he had something calming about his voice, almost mechanical like. 

Hmmm WordPress List Posts, Should I Use An Expert?

I’m always skeptical about lists posts for WordPress products; that said, Chip’s pedigree is surprisingly robust. He highlighted his post on the top 900 WordPress Themes For Canary Handlershis work was sublime. 

Reading through the post, it was clear to me, he knows his stuff. So I’m trialing Chip on LayerWP.

Chip’s responsibilities will be the careful curation of WordPress themes and plugins. I’m not a fan of writing list posts personally; in fact, you probably all know I loathe them. 

Chip is an expert in this field, and I’d rather hand it over to him to compile and curate. So far, I’m impressed by his communication skills, and I, for one, am looking forward to what he can come up with.

Chip, it’s over to you.

Thanks, Ben, super excited to be pumping out list posts like there’s no tomorrow; in my time gaming the search engines with listicles, I’ve got tons of experience. 

My background is primarily in entrepreneurship; I’ve released countless eBooks and written the best seller on Amazon called “I’ll Take Both Ferraris – My Solo Success Story.”

I started with WordPress back in 1991, before the internet got going. So you could say I’m a pioneer! I’ve seen a lot happen over the last 30 years, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with your readers.

If your readers would like to follow me, I’m on Twitter; hit me up; I’ll follow back. I used to have another account, but it was banned, something about a bot. 

Feel free to follow me, and I’m looking forward to outputting crap quality content for LayerWP. 

Thanks, Chip!

Excellent to have someone new on the team, it’s no longer a one-person show, and I’m super excited to have Chip’s knowledge to draw on. I’m expecting big things from Chip, and I’m happy to have him on board.

P.s This post is filed in the satire category because it’s satire. Chip doesn’t exist, and I’m experimenting.

  2. Haha – nice one. This post hurt a little, since we’d just published a WordPress list post (ulp!). Thankfully no canaries were mentioned.
