Go Freelance with WordPress

February 7, 2011 | No Comments Yet

WordPress isn’t just a thriving free, open source community, it’s also a very popular business, from premium themes and plugins to large-scale websites. Want a piece of the profitable WP pie? DesignM.ag demystifies one particular aspect of the business: how to freelance with WordPress.

The guide covers not only the techie WordPress jobs like design and development, but also other careers in copywriting, photography, and journalism:

Built right into WordPress are a host of image and gallery features. You can upload, resize, and crop your images. You can align them around text, add captions and links. You can have a page of thumbnails which link to a larger version of the shot. All of this is part of the core WordPress software.

That’s an interesting take on going pro with WordPress you don’t get to see often, so make sure to have a look. It doesn’t stop there, though. There are dozens of site types you can build with WP, and that means different types of freelancers that can take advantage of the publishing platform.

Litratong Pinoy

Litratong Pinoy is a website made up of weekly photoblogging challenges, i.e., lingguhang palaro for all Filipino bloggers (as well as Filipino-speaking foreigners) who have an inclination towards photography.

The rules are simple. First you must register at the website and leave a few personal details. Then, every Thursday you’ll post a photo corresponding to the week’s theme on your own blog. The supporting essay for the photo should be written in Tagalog (although Taglish is permitted). You will need to post 2 times before you become a full-fledged L.P. member.

Litratong Pinoy is a great way to unleash one’s own creativity and the love of the Filipino language at the same time.
