Investing in the WordPress Community with Matt Cromwell – The Divi Nation Podcast, Episode 20

After a week off we’re back with another full-length episode of Divi Nation. This time around I sat down with Matt Crowmwell of WordImpress to learn his personal WordPress story. He also shared some great insights and anecdotes about how important investing in the WordPress Community is, the role of generosity in his career, and how he and the team at WordImpress are paying that generosity forward with their new(ish), free donation plugin Give.

Investing in the WordPress Community with Matt Cromwell – Divi Nation 20


I thoroughly enjoy it every time Matt and I get to talk. We’ve met a few times now (in person at WordCamp Miami and online via Facebook or Skype) and each time I feel like we get into meaningful territory–something I always appreciate in a good conversation. This time was no different.

During the course of our conversation you’ll not only get a good WordPress story but a lot of great perspective, advice, and a few good side stories of community and generosity. I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as we did.

  1. Loving these Nathan – Missed ya last week! Priceless advice and insights.

    • Thanks Andrew! Yeah I had some technical difficulties with this episode that took some time to sort out. There was a skype bug that caused the audio/video to be horribly out of sync. Took me days to get everything to where it is above but it’s still not perfect. Hopefully that won’t happen again!

  2. Great episode. I really appreciate Matt sharing his background and his take on building community. Also I started using Give as soon as it came out and I love it. Its great for churches and non-profits and I use it all the time. I also use it on my Divi Tutorial website because people were always asking if they can send me a few bucks to buy me a coffee or lunch as a way to say thanks. Its a great resource.

    • I’m looking to use Give on a new project I’m working on as well. Excited to give it a go!

  3. Thanks both of you, i’ve got a warm feel after listening to your experience Matt!

    • Haha, that’s awesome! Giving back always feels good πŸ™‚

  4. Great episode Nathan,

    There is a lot to learn from this podcast.

  5. Wow Great episode Nathan.

    Thanks for this awesome podcast.

  6. Matt. I wanted to use Give for a project but I needed a P2P crowdfunding interface for donors. I understand that crowdfunding is on your roadmap later this year. Are any nearer making an announcement on that?

  7. Great podcast. But is there any common page from you guys to access all Divi related video training or pod cast stuff at one place.
