Our Mission

Post Status exists to help WordPress businesses and professionals grow in ways that expand, sustain, and protect the commons we share: the Open Web.

Our History

Post Status launched on 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 communities. 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 early 2021 Cory became the sole owner and publisher of Post Status.
