Today we have part two of our conversation with Dave Rodenbaugh, a self-funded entrepreneur who has been selling WordPress plugins since 2009. He’s also one half of the Rogue Startups podcast. Today we talk about his experience with the WordPress plugin repository – the WordPress equivalent of the App Store, content marketing, Automattic as the gatekeeper for WordPress plugins, and Sherlocking in the WordPress ecosystem.
