Weekly WordPress News: All Change .. Introducing WPLift’s New Owner

As the title states, this was the week when WPLift changed owner. Oli and I have been working very hard to get me up to speed on everything that is WPLift. That is a LOT… As Oli poured his soul into this website for over 6 years . But first things first. Let me give you a proper introduction of myself. As I have been hearing a lot of people wondering who the new buyer is…

My name is Daan Tol – I’m an 34 year old Dutch online freelancer, with 7 years of WordPress experience.

Am I a die hard WordPress coder? No. I’m a guy who has installed dozens of plugins and themes into many WordPress installs to check out new designs, functions, connections, SEO improvements, etc. etc. You can say that I have a bit a knack for finding cool plugins and nice themes.

Why did I buy WPLift? I was looking to become more of an entrepreneur than a freelancer. This website gives me more freedom to make my own choices, instead of doing what my clients want. It is a large investment, not one without risks, but I’m in it for the long run and will do my utmost to make it succeed. Oli has created a great blog, and I feel it as my duty to maintain that quality.

So here we go – as usual – the overview of the week for you guys.

  4. Congrats both of you, Dan and Oli!
    I was there where you are right now, when you feel like getting into products and moving away from freelancing for a bit. Anywho, looking forward to what WPLift has to offer in the near future.

  5. Hi Daan,

    Congratulations on acquiring one of the best WP blogs around :)

    A small typo report for you:

    “As Oli poored his soul into this website for over 6 years” – I assume that should be “poured” not “poored” :)


  6. I see you on Flippa Daan, and also Oli >.<
