Planning Our First Steps

Last night, TJ and I met for a couple of hours to start talking about what we want HeadingTwo to become. TJ lives in the Clearwater, FL, area and I live near Orlando, FL, so we met virtually which was great. Over time, I’m sure we’ll talk a little bit more about the tools that we use to communicate, plan, and produce content.

Where do we begin?

TJ and I both have a tendency to start to dream about what could be. This is especially true with any project we’re particularly excited about. There’s nothing wrong with that, but I think it’s part of why this endeavor fizzled out a couple of years ago. We were itching for this to grow faster than it did and lost interest when it didn’t. I think we’ve learned from that experience and are ready to tackle this adventure one step at a time.

First, we’ll start with a blog. Yep, the one you’re reading right now! TJ and I have both written web design and development content for years, so this should come fairly naturally. It also allows us to establish a bit of a presence online before officially launching anything else. The blog will primarily consist of WordPress, WooCommerce, web design, and web development content directly related to our experiences in our daily work. But, you know, this is our project, so we might toss some other things in from time to time 😉

Okay, what else?

Because we’ve both written for years in other places, collaborating on a blog alone is not super exciting. We’re excited to do it, but we want to stretch ourselves to do a bit more than that. We both want to do something neither of us has done before—at least not on our own.

Once the blog has started and is picking up steam – which it already is! – we want to start a HeadingTwo podcast! We’ve both been guests on a couple of other people’s podcast episodes, but we want one that we can call ours. Similar to the blog, it’ll revolve around our experiences in WordPress and the web as a whole, but I’m sure we’ll find a way to inject some shenanigans along the way…

So, with that, I’m announcing that we’re doing a podcast! And that’s all the details we have so far 😆

Have questions about this article or any others we’ve written? Let us know on Twitter @headingtwo!
Today I was joined by Tabitha Turton from GoDaddy (and also formerly SkyVerge) to share a bit about the exclusive, native features that we've been able to add to GoDaddy's Managed WooCommerce hosting.
