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 β€” our two-year milestone β€” we launched the membership component: the Post Status Club. Next, David Bisset and then Dan Knauss joined the team.

In January 2020, Cory Miller joined Post Status as an equal partner with its founder, Brian Krogsgard.

In early 2021 Cory and Lindsey Miller became the sole owner and publisher of Post Status.

The Post Status Team

Together, we maintain Post Status as a unique community for the professional WordPress community. Part trade association, part meeting place, and a very social information exchange β€” it’s where we help each other give and grow together.

Lindsey Miller
