Site History

Post Status launched January 21st, 2013. Initially, it was a link-sharing blog where we selected the best articles being published in the WordPress and larger web tech community. Eventually, Post Status became a more typical blog with original content. On January 21st, 2015 — our two year milestone — we launched the membership component: the Post Status Club.

In January, 2020, Cory Miller joined Post Status as an equal partner with its founder, Brian Krogsgard. In 2021 Cory became the sole owner and publisher of Post Status.
