WordPress for beginners

Ashley Faulkes is my special guest on this episode of The Blog Chronicles.

Ashley is a Blogger, Web Developer, and WordPress expert over on his website – MADLEMMINGS.COM

Hailing from Australia, at the time he set out to study a degree in mechanical engineering. After years of studying Ashley felt that he had no interest in the subject at all and set out to travel the world and do other things.

Even doing a ski instructor course while he was living in Canada.

In 2001 when the DOT COM bust was happening, work was very scarce. Fortunately, Ashley, at the time was approached by an old university friend who offered him a very good opportunity in Switzerland to become a web developer. Ashley jumped at the opportunity even though he knew nothing about the internet he used his technical skills to master whatever he set out to do.

Since then Ashley has never looked back, and although Ashley claims not to be an expert in his field he has a wealth of information on how to get started online in a professional manner. (more…)

Should You Start a Podcast? Maybe. Find Your Answer with Prolific Podcaster Nathan Fraser [EP 43 The Blog Chronicles]

Nathan Fraser

On this episode of The Blog Chronicles, we’re going to be talking about podcasting, more specifically, how podcasting can help a blogger grow their audience to reach its full potential.

Today my guest is Nathan Fraser -‘The High Priest Of Propaganda.’

Nathan has been a prolific podcaster since the late 2000’s and before he even knew what blogging was, he was creating content and building websites.

Mainly as a political activist, Nathan used his blogging skills to create a communication that he thought lacked through main-stream media authority. For about ten-years Nathan stayed under the radar writing content about political issues using many different pseudonyms before coming out as ‘Nathan Fraser,'(which is his real name, so, if you are really good at internet research you may just still find some of his ‘old stuff.’ ) 😉

In this ‘down the rabbit hole’ episode of  The Blog Chronicles, I spoke with Nathan and learned that he has certainly had a very interesting and colourful background. His marketing skills and the urge to push on be persistent in what he wanted to achieve as an entrepreneur building businesses and serving people in the free market, all of these things led him down many avenues, twists and turns before becoming – The High Priest Of Propaganda.
