8-WordPress Experts.png

Tips and tricks from real professionals

If you are active as a blogger on the Internet, you often have to do everything yourself. Technology, content, maintenance, security and future planning. This is anything but easy and a blogger is usually very grateful for certain tips and tricks. How good it is that there are experts on the web who like to share their knowledge with others. These experts are either real WordPress celebrities, or they are known because they have a lot of professional or insider knowledge of certain topics. Following these experts is important. Why? Because nobody is infallible. Because certain things only happen in certain situations. Because certain knowledge is not available everywhere.

For example, many WordPress celebrities share unique code hints, provide ingenious plugins, explain optimization possibilities or are particularly knowledgeable about servers or web business in general. To follow them often means to have a knowledge advantage and above all to stay up to date. By the way, it is not about copying their ways or ideas, but to internalize their tips and learn from their mistakes. Because if you are a man who wants to be the greatest, you are guaranteed and hopefully you will fail.

He also founded Automattica company that provides services for WordPress. For example, the VIP hostingthe plugins Akismet, Gravatar, Jetpack and the platform WordPress.com.

Peer Wandiger

Peer WandigerNot only do I enjoy working with Peer Wandiger, I have also been reading his articles for a long time now. At Blog project there are always a few interesting posts from him and me on blogging and on self-employment on the net he blogs himself about the, who would have thought it, digital self-employment. In the German-speaking world his blogs are very unique, in my opinion, and whoever is self-employed or wants to optimize his blog, can't avoid his pages. They are definitely worth a look and every web worker benefits from his knowledge.

Everyone is well advised with this list

So there they were, my 8 celebrities, who I consider absolute experts in their field. Surely the list is incomplete, surely there is someone here and there who would be worth following, but that is always the case. Nothing is perfect. Nevertheless, with the list above, everyone is well advised, no matter if you are a beginner, advanced or already a professional. From the developers and web workers on this list, everyone will learn something if you really follow the individual careers and jobs. I am sure of it. But now keep blogging, because without your own efforts you won't be successful. After all, you want to be on such a list yourself, don't you?
