This blog has opened up my eyes that there are truly hundreds of quality themes for the Genesis Framework out there and lots of ways to customize them. Come follow my journey on this blog as I look at various themes and tutorials that I find beneficial.

Here is a little more information about me.

I’m actually a computer expert with 16 years of experience in this field and have many years of WordPress experience.

Sometime in 2014, I had purchased this domain name and still to this day, I have no clue to why I picked the name. I think my imaginary friend told me to pick that URL. Sssssssh, stop talking Derek. Enough about choosing the name, It seemed like the best fit at that current time. The domain registrar is the popular Godaddy company.

If you are not familiar with the Genesis Framework then I would suggest you look through our guide on Why Choose The Genesis Framework

The Birth Of WPOutcast

I started this blog because out of frustration while searching for a new Genesis Framework theme for another blog of mine. Here is the scoop on why I was going bonkers. While searching Google and going through multiple theme marketplaces I didn’t really find what I was looking for, these marketplaces were so bloated with ads and upgrade features that I couldn’t take it and a light bulb came on. Why not start a blog and share all Genesis Framework themes that I come across each month.

Since this blog’s birth, WPOutcast has since then added new categories for non-theme related blog posts with useful tutorials and step by step instructions to follow. We aim to help each and every one of our visitors with useful guides geared towards new WordPress blog admins.

Here is the first version of the early days before I started to dab with code and it was a learn as you go experience.

After blogging for years, I’ve learned that some stuff is truly needed to either make you money or to make your blog better overall. I have listed all the resources that I have once used or still use, including all the  fantastic affiliate programs in which I still get commissions from. Visit our resource page and see what programs I have been associated with for years.

Derek’s Online History

It’s the year 2016 and I have been online since the year 2000; I think. Back in the year 2000ish, lot’s of forums were starting up and making their presence known. Only the strong survived as most forums saw a loss in new registrations, quality posters, and couldn’t earn enough to cover operating costs. So, they stopped running their forum and moved onto other projects. I basically did this. Near the end of the year 2001, I got the vBulletin forum software and, of course, I had already bought a domain.

(Wow, VB so different back then, I remember the early days of this forum software all to well. lol)

Now I did do my research before starting a forum. I had gotten a great web host (Ok it was cheap at first but I moved to another one after revenue went up) and got myself a web designer to create a custom theme. Finally, after two months I was able to put the forum live on the internet. After a year of running the forum, I decided to sell it because I had lost interest in running a forum. I made a decent profit and didn’t start a new project right after.

What  did I end up doing after getting out of the forum admin business? I joined a support forum for a free remotely hosted forum company and started helping out in the support forum. Six months later I got noticed by paid staff and became a Global moderator and have helped thousands of admins with their forums. Out of the blue, I caught wind of a new CMS, I felt the hair sticking up on the back of my neck. This new CMS was a type of  “blog software” called WordPress. I did some research on WordPress and very shortly fell in love with it. I haven’t looked back since.

Once I started my first blog, I kept on blogging for years. I started a new blog about every two years, until now, as WPoutcast is the only blog I operate. I will never lose my passion for blogging. Blogging makes me happy. I enjoy helping people grow and understand the blogging world, as well as providing a platform for themes that isn’t overrun with other content.
