This week: I talk with Jordan Cooper about his day job, his comedic process (spoiler: he says he doesn’t have one), and what every podcaster loves to talk about: podcasting.

I just saw this post on UpThemes about migrating your content from Medium to WordPress. Now, I know that they’re just trying to sell their themes, but their comprehension of why people write on Medium is completely wrong.
Before I get into why they’re fundamentally wrong,1 I’ll go ahead and say that their reasons why you might not want to be publishing on Medium, are sound. I’m all for owning your content. However, they’re also telling you that you can have everything you have on Medium with WordPress, which is a lie.
People don’t write on Medium just because the reading experience is beautiful; the writing experience is too. WordPress continues to descend into more and more clutter, making writing with it cumbersome and a burden. Sites like Medium give the writer the ability to focus on writing and publishing, whereas WordPress does not.
Personally, it’s the biggest reason I moved over to Jekyll. Yet the average person doesn’t know how to create a Jekyll site, much less get it on to a server. You could go with something like Ghost, but then you need to know Node.js.
If your goal is to write, have a great reading and writing experience, own your content, and get your site setup quickly, you solution is definitely not WordPress. In fact, you’re attached to another object by an inclined plane, wrapped helically around an axis,2 because it doesn’t exist.
As I said last week, I was going to order a Incipio NGP Case for my new iPhone 6. I’ve only had it three days, which isn’t enough time to write a thorough review, but just enough time for me to tell you that I love it.
I received the case on Friday. I put it on and almost immediately fell in love with it. It’s light, and is thin enough to look great on the phone, but not to the point where you feel like nothing is being protected. The material is a perfect balance of soft yet firm. The case gives you more grip on the phone without being a nuisance to put in or take out of pockets.
Again, I’ve said before that I hate cases, but this case came to change everything. My first impressions are very good, and I see myself using this case in the long term. If you have hesitated at all to buy this case and had some of the same issues I did, hesitate no more. Keep on the lookout for a more in-depth review in the coming months.
