Knowing Page.ly has much love for charitable causes, I was stoked when I discovered that a company called Socialvest was a Page.ly customer. Socialvest’s free web-based service lets you raise money for nonprofit causes by shopping online. Socialvest’s participating retailers (700 of them, including Amazon.com, Adobe, iTunes, etc.) contribute a percentage of your purchases to a personal Socialvest giving account. Socialvest then lets you donate those funds to any of about 1.5 million nonprofits. It’s scrappy and innovative, it’s all for… Read It
If you watch Hackernews or Techcrunch or just about any tech news outlet you see a cadre of the who’s who in tech enjoying the press being lavished over them. Many times the press links back to an announcement made on their page.ly hosted WordPress blog. I find it fascinating that our little company powers the blogs and sites of many of these high power tech sites. Our current client roster boasts names like: SimpleGeo, Get Satisfaction, Viddler, Twilio, Texas A&M, Causes.com and… Read It
CEO, middle manager or freelancer. Big, medium or just one person. Service, product or a combination of both. No matter the position, size of company or what a company offers, customer satisfaction is the absolute #1 rule of the game. Without customers, there can be no growth, no business and, worst of all, no one to share cool new ways we can make automated WordPress hosting work better for everyone. Thankfully, Page.ly is blessed with more than a few great… Read It
Thad Allender, founder of Graph Paper Press, has been using WordPress to run his business since 2007. His background in photography and video lead him to discover a void in the market of publishing different kinds of media online. His websites attracted plenty of attention, as people were curious as to how he built and displayed content in such a cohesive package. That prompted him to design themes for WordPress, which an emerging market took to extremely well. He partnered… Read It
Page.ly sure does love their customers. When I first proposed posting interviews on this here blog, I figured Josh or Sally would love to go first. I’d use them as guinea pigs of sorts to figure out this section and then move on to clients, partners and affiliates. Neither of them would have any of that. Josh immediately gave me a list of cool people to start with and every interview I’ve done has been tons of fun. Jonathan Pytell… Read It

I used to own an iPad. Affectionately labeled TyPad, it got plenty of use on the drive from Phoenix to San Francisco for WordCamp (tickets courtesy of Josh Strebel) but it has since moved on to owners who have more use for it. When we bought it, the first purchase I made was a nice case. I didn’t want my $600 magic, revolutionary device to be cracked, scratched or breathed on wrong. We bought a DODOcase. It wasn’t cheap, I… Read It
