How do you use WordPress (Blogging? As a CMS? SEO Tool?)

All of the above. Blogging: I help clients write/edit blog posts as part of an overall content marketing strategy. I help them build a personalized framework for gathering and collecting all the little thoughts and inspirations that eventually grow into a blog post. CMS: I'm a big fan of Custom Types for creating unique content structures for each business. SEO: Post-Panda, I've seen huge spikes in some of my sites because I have always been convinced (read: edified in me by Copyblogger) of the idea that content is, and will always be, the foundation of any SEO strategy. Creating and curating thoughtful and inspired content also serves to deeply connect business owners to their vision and mission.

What's your level of knowledge of WordPress (Beginner, Designer, Coder)?

I mainly like to use Themes and modify them, although I have a partner developer with whom I've built custom themes and mobile sites, etc. So I can take on any kind of project. I can take care of all server-side setup and config as well. I used to be a programmer 100 years ago, in the days of Visual Basic and DOS-based Borland C compilers and RPG (thats right, RPG). So I'm not afraid of code, although I couldn't write a PHP function from scratch. (it does look alot like C, though, so I find it pretty easy to hack).

Do you have a WordPress blog or site you want to share?

Introduction

I get juice from augmenting great ideas with technology, helping people build their knowledge and product offerings into great content. I work with designers who need help putting their designs onto Wordpress, and create content marketing strategies.
