About The Editors
Here is a little bit about the editors of ShopWPThemes so you know who is giving you all of this great information.
Hi. I’m Mike Kelley.
Actually, Captain Mike. Yep, that’s right I’m a real Captain, not small boats but real big ones. This blog started out being “mine”, but it quickly became a team effort. I’m great at brainstorming and researching. Beth, my wife, has an eye for detail and is a great editor.
In my other life, I’m a Master Merchant Mariner, unlimited tonnage, with pilotage in Alaska. I have worked at sea since 1973, when I graduated from the Maine Maritime Academy. I went to work on super tankers.
We eventually moved across to the other corner of the country – Port Townsend, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula. Eventually I changed to shore side jobs by working with an oil spill clean-up cooperative in Puget Sound, and by teaching at MITAGS, the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies in Maryland, and PMI, the Pacific Maritime Institute in Seattle. This is where I found a passion for teaching. My specialty is teaching senior maritime merchant seamen to become Captains through approved Coast Guard courses. This passion for teaching has spilled over into a desire to share my excitement and expertise with the internet and WordPress blogs.
I’m Beth Kelley.
He kept sailing and I stayed home to ‘hold down the fort’ while he was gone and to keep an eye on our son and daughter.
Staying home means that I volunteered in our children’s classes, did fund raisers for the PTA, traded stock, and, living in the Pacific Northwest, became an avid gardener. And, of course, I built websites.
And Why We’re Here
Beth and I have been playing on the internet for around 10 years. We started out with static websites but quickly shifted over to WordPress blogs because they are easy to use from anywhere. We both found out that what we really love is working with the structure and gadgets that make WordPress work so well. And we would share what we’d find with those of our friends who have websites. Most of them were good at the content of their blogs and that’s where they were spending their time. But they didn’t really know what they needed to know about making their blogs work. They are smart and capable people and could easily get their blogs working to the max, but they didn’t even know what the right questions were to ask.
So that’s where we came in. And that’s where we’re coming in to help you.
We wanted to do something together and fortunately you’ll all benefit from our decision. Together we want to help and teach WordPress to anyone that wants to build a WordPress blog.
It’s as simple as that.
We enjoy what we do, the life internet gives us, and we want others to have this same opportunity.
