WPWeekly Episode 84 – Interview With Page.ly

wordpressweekly1This episode of WordPress Weekly featured two different guests. The first, Joshua Strebel who operates the Page.ly service. Page.ly is an interesting service because it takes the best of what WordPress.com has to offer and combines it with the freedom of using the WordPress software itself. While I would have thought that this is directly competing against WordPress.com, it’s not. During the interview, I ask Josh what happens behind the scene at Page.ly, what the response has been like from his current customer base, the specifics behind why he is only hosting WordPress powered websites and much more.

During the second half of the show, Chris Pirillo of Lockergnome fame joined the show to talk about his usage of WordPress MU along with BuddyPress. Chris currently has Lockergnome.net setup for anyone who wants a free blog. However, Chris has setup premium.lockergnome.net to provide more value for the blogs hosted on the domain. During the show, we talked about Chris’s use of the Lifestream plugin that many people found interest in.
