You can sell just about anything online these days. Everywhere you look, there’s another online marketplace/platform ready to help you turn your idea into another success story.

  • For example, if you sell handmade widgets, there’s Etsy.
  • If you’re using an arbitrage business model, you can use eBay.
  • Freelancers can use sites like Upwork and Fiverr.
  • Books publishers and sellers of all things legal, have Amazon.
  • Course creators can use Kajabi, Teachable, Podia, and/or Udemy.
  • And coaches can turn to sites like Coaching Cloud to connect with clients.

No matter what you’re selling, the data-collecting, customer keeping, over-funded tech giants have you covered.

Breaking out of the labs:

The first issue of XFtoWP 1.5 beta has been declared, following 37 alpha versions to get to its first strong working copy.

Next step is to test it on a real staging/live environment. More details coming soon.

Page Blocks sneak peak

The next Dropin added to the new Dropins library is nearly ready, and just needs a little extra documentation as it is very powerful.

Once I can at least get the basic downloads pages and documentation written for the first four inital Dropins, I will do more clean up to make the Dropins Library more official, and then announce them all to the MD email list.

This Dropin is called Page Blocks, an experimental page builder I developed a while ago and polished off for this release. It allows you to build unlimited HTML sections from the post editor and works great with MD helper classes. I am excited to show this one off and even more interested to see who uses Page Blocks, as it is a tool meant for people with HTML knowledge.

Keep watching this space, lots of fun updates still ahead!
