Learning to Move in the Right Direction


Suggested by a reader through email months ago, I agreed to create a magazine theme based on some of the links sent to me. After completing the front page preview you see above and even designs for sub pages, I left this theme concept on the shelf for two months and have decided to throw it away to work on a different theme to release in August. Why? It’s just not in line with what’s coming for DevPress.com.

I was researching and working on DevPress hosting platform in June and recently restructured the site in July to cater to my own needs. Everything on DevPress is moving towards solving my own problems and problems of the individual, not group needs. A magazine theme is more useful to a team of writers or editors and that’s not the audience DevPress will cater to.

While future DevPress products might be useful to groups, they will always solve problems of the individual first. I’ve also decided not to create and support things I don’t use. Solving my own needs lead me to creating cool stuff like the DP Dashboard plugin. The difference in quality shows when I’m solving my own problems instead of just focusing on turning out new products to increase profit.

So moving forward, I’m just going to focus on creating things I’m interested in and sharing them with you.

    This is definitely the way I think about things too. If you don’t use or feel good about your products, don’t offer them to others.

    1. Don't be tardy for the wedding is very boring. Kim needs to go away!!! She is just a gold digging whore. Kroy is just a little boy, who ran into the first tramp that would sleep with him. He better pray that the NFL checks keep coming!!! If he ever run out of money that whore Kim is going to be gone!!! She was only with big papa for money as well!!! She is going to lay on her back and continue having babies, just to have a hold over his young dumd ass. I wouldn't ever want my son to marry something like her!!!!!!

    2. I’ bummed I couldn’t make the ride. That’s good stuff you rode.I’ve always called that last trail Bramber (because that’s the street it dumps onto). But you have to like the name Poop Chute.I agree with Bill, the ride over to Dry Canyon is good. There’s also a loop over to the south side of Provo Canyon that’s fun. Come ride again.

    3. Love your blog! I just followed you. I recently started my own blog and would love some feedback or maybe even a follow. Thanks so much, and keep up the great work!Justinerawrmakeup.blogspot.comJustinerawr,xo

    4. Hay cambio genuino y crecimiento personal, y hay cambio que es tan sólo un juego de apariencias y autoconvencimiento superficial.El primero seguramente sea lento en una edad avanzada, pero sigue siendo necesario para vivir una vida con significado independientemente de la edad, lo único que cambia es la velocidad, con menos vértigo. |
