Russell, who is currently based in Las Vegas, works at Maintainn which forms a part of WebDevStudio and a die-hard WordPress advocate who believes in its power to both transform businesses and lives. Profile picture of Russell Aaron from WebDevStudios Profile picture of Russell Aaron from WebDevStudios Profile picture of Russell Aaron from WebDevStudios Russell Aaron from WebDevStudios And then two months, three months, four months..." - Russell Aaron I am going to be speaking to Russell Aaron. Really really cool guy, I talked to, based all the way in Las Vegas and he's the guy who's involved in the WordPress community, quite a bit, not only working in the full time career, helping and support clients. He's also involved in meet up groups and WordCamps, which is a conference for WordPress and he has been in the WordPress community for many many years, and this is a really really good episode if you want to know how the community really works together and how they help each other, how supportive they are, really had a good chat with Russell, so just sit back, just relax, and enjoy my chat with Russell Aaron. Russell: Sure, I started like most people with Myspace, where we were changing our own backgrounds and adding music to profiles and I got into learning how to build pages for bands. I was pretty big into the music scene here in the state of Nevada, but mostly up North in Reno, so I was doing Myspace band layouts and I was blogging, using the Myspace blog about how I couldn't figure out how to do this, or this graphic was giving me a problem and a buddy of mine suggested that I start a blog, and I go I have a blog, and he goes no you need a real one, and he set me up on WordPress.com, so I started blogging over there, and once I started gaining some traffic, he said you know you can take this ... How did he phrase this? He said you could take this on the road as ... You could have your own website running on WordPress, and once he showed me that, my mind was kind of blown so I learnt how to set WordPress up on my own domain, and install plugins and themes. Russell: So MySpace was fine in the sense of like you could hide your comments and it was just adding a CSS property that says display hidden. Russell: The irony is that WordPress is for bloggers, it's for journalists, and I switched to learn how to build it. Russell: Sure, so WebDevStudios was one of the very first WordPress companies that I've ever heard of. Russell: What I do is I'm actually on the other side of the house which is WordPress support and that is under another umbrella called Maintain and so we offer a monthly ... Russell: Yes, so we don't have the size of like let's say a San Diego or a Los Angeles or even a Philadelphia, but what's cool about the WordPress community here in Las Vegas is that we get together every month and it's growing like crazy. We have a space, they used to give us, I think we had like 40 chairs and now the space that we're at has over 200 chairs and we're filling that all the time, so I think we're going in the right direction, I think we have a solid group of people who want to learn and who are very smart when it comes to blogging and not just blogging about things in general, but we have a guy in our group who blogs just about Las Vegas and he's getting you know one or two million hits a month. Ahmed: Wow. Russell Aaron: Having people like that in our group who are not just WordPress knowledgeable but they know how marketing works, they know how to get it out and get traffic, having that I think that's really grown our group. Russell: Not only can they help you, but let's say they cannot help you, there's usually one or two people in the meetup who at least know what you're trying to fix so they can tell you of that's called a taxonomy or this is called a custom post type and they can actually help you find the language to speak to a developer, not that you have to learn anything different but some things are called something different and so they can actually help you get the jargon down to say when you come to a company like WebDev, you can say I have this broken taxonomy help me, and it makes that conversation so much smoother. Russell: There's a running joke in the WordPress community where a client hires a developer, three months goes by and then that developer leaves, and then leaving the person with the website looking to hire somebody else. Russell: I first joined the WordPress community by jumping on the advanced WordPress group on Facebook. I started off with the intention of promotion my business. He's a group of people with WordPress sites, they're looking for help, so I jumped on there and I started just answering questions. Russell: What I also like about it too is a lot of ... Russell Aaron: Well we have a lot of people that come to our meetup group that said oh I did this thing and they showed us this article and the article says oh you want to switch to colour of your links, you need to buy a new theme, when that's not the case you now, you can update CSS, and you can change the colour of your links. Ahmed: Yup. Russell Aaron: Before that was really big, WordPress had this way of just change the theme out, you can have this new look, and now things are getting so robust that it's not just as simple as changing a theme any more so. Russell: I feel pretty safe at a WordCamp. Russell: When I first started our meetup group here in Las Vegas, I was kind of that guy who showed up and knew it all. Russell: Well that's what it was so to give you an example, you know when somebody says would you use WordPress to do XYZ, and my answer used to be oh yeah totally because WordPress is great. It was one of those things where you cannot stay that same person in the WordPress community, at least for me because I was the guy where I showed up and they were like oh it's Russ, hahaha, and now it's hey Russ I have a question come over here. Russell: I agree. Russell Aaron: Whether you are starting something new like getting into WordPress or you're starting a new hobby like jogging or woodworking, you always start with a loss, because there are tonnes of stuff that you need to know in order to do things right? Russell: There's a lot to learn just by using the WordPress dashboard right like where to go to write a post, where to go to change your settings. Russell: What would I do differently, that's a good question though. Russell: So there's actually another aspect of why I wanted to become a better role model, was because I was going to our meetup group and I was saying hey here's how you do this thing with an object and here's how you make it into this other thing and people in our meetup group were like look I'm just trying to put our menus together right? Russell: It's one of those things where when you don't know what you're looking for, everything is an available option because there's ten contact forms plugins out there like gravity forums and formidable and ninja forums so if you don't know what you're trying to accomplish, they're all a viable solution. Russell: My biggest strength...so personally I feel like my biggest strength is my willingness to actually help if any situation. Russell: One thing that's hard ... So I do WordPress support and one thing is all of our support is done through text. Russell: Or until they send you a picture with them pulling their hair out, you don't know that they're really mad at you right now you know? It's one of those things where ... Russell: What am I most proud about. That's tough man. Russell: I'm thinking of all these great things I did you know like I knocked down the Berlin Wall, that was a big moment in my life. Russell: I know right, next all you have to do is world peace that's how you top ... Ahmed: I just want to thank you for your time Russell, really really appreciate it. Ahmed: If anybody wants to go to Las Vegas, you'll find Russell there. Russell: Just get a plane ticket, I'm sure we have enough hotel rooms in Las Vegas, so I'm on Twitter as ENQUEUE_RUSS. If not I have a blog called Russellenvy.com, you can find me there or you can just search Russell Aaron and things come up. There's an American Olympic athlete with the same name as myself or I think he's Aaron Russell so don't get me confused. Ahmed: I'm going to make sure, just to help people, I'm going to put your link in the show notes so that they are not going to the wrong Aaron Russell, Russell Aaron, whatever it's going to be so I'm going to help them with that so don't you worry about that, that's going to be cool. Russell: There's actually a kid that I grew up with in Reno, his name is Russell Aaron as well so if you actually go on Twitter and you search for Russell Aaron, he actually comes up first and we look very similar. Again Russell, thanks for your time, thanks for sharing it's just been totally awesome. Like I said, anybody wants to go to Las Vegas, make sure you say hi to Russell, so yeah Russell thanks again. Russell: Thank you very much. Ahmed: And that is it, thank you Russell again for coming onto the show.

WordPress Rockstar: Russell Aaron Russell Aaron is a WordPress Rockstar for many reasons, but his enthusiasm and gusto for WordPress was what impressed me when I finally met him in person. He's my kind of people who appreciate rock, has a love for WordPress and life, and just exudes a lot of energy and positivity. Russell contributes to the WordPress community in a few ways. He's a plugin developer, he's been a WordCamp Organizer, and he's been a WordCamp speaker. If you've not met Russell, you should. He's always got something awesome to say. And if you like tacos, or have some, you're in the club. A little bit about Russell Aaron College was the place that Russell Aaron first found WordPress. Russell moved to Eugene Oregon and attended The University of Oregon, where he learned how to write a blog. He learned how to manipulate the template "theme" of his site. After graduation, Russell moved to Las Vegas and sold memberships to adult websites, and built the affiliate program for one of them. In 2011, Russell attended WordCamp Vegas and met some really cool people that inspired his love of WordPress. Since that WordCamp, he's focused all of his time and attention on WordPress. Interview with Russell Aaron RUSSELL AARON:I got into using WordPress by trying to build table based designs, for bands, on Myspace. Remember Myspace? RUSSELL AARON:The real thing I enjoy the most, from our Local Vegas WordPress Meet up, is the sense of knowing that I helped someone. RUSSELL AARON:One of the biggest challenges we had in planning WordCamp Vegas 2015 was simply time. RUSSELL AARON:Yes. I work for WebDevStudios.
