What Does WordPress Have to Do with the Creator Economy?
The Creator Economy is in full swing thanks to a number of tools and platforms that have made it incredibly easy to get paid by creating content. It almost feels like table stakes at this point. Sign up for a platform, and in a few clicks you're ready to make money And while WordPress has enabled developers to implement payment options for websites easily, the ease of use for creators is a different story. So it’s time to explore the question: where does WordPress fit into the Creator Economy?

The WordPress Podcast Website Toolkit
This episode marks the start of an important shift in the content here at WP Review — something I’ll dive more into after ConvertKit’s Craft + Commerce conference at the end of June. But suffice to say, creators, are growing wary of WordPress. I personally think that WordPress is the perfect tool for the growing creator economy, so here at WP Review, we’re going to spend many of the next episodes talking to creators about how WordPress can help them more than any other platform. And we’re going to start with a type of creator near and dear to my heart: the podcaster.

What WordPress has to do with the Discontinued iPod
Apple has discontinued the iPod. When the iPod came out in 2001, it literally changed the world. And I don't mean literally like figuratively. I mean, it shifted how people consumed music on the go. Another thing that happened recently was WordPress lost a market share for the first time. How are these two events related? They both happened this week, of course, but what does one have to do with the other? What does this mean for freelancers? There are a lot of similarities between the iPod and WordPress. And that's what we're going to talk about.

MemberPress and Asking: Is the WordPress Way the Right Way?
MemberPress made some waves this week when it was discovered that they were completely locking out users who had expired license keys. The WordPress way is you get access to the plugin, which you get to keep because it's open source, whether or not you keep paying for the license. Generally, support and updates are the things that you keep paying for. But why is this the case when virtually every other piece of software we use today is based on, "a keep paying for access" model?
