Post Status founder Brian Krogsgard has sold the remaining half of his ownership of the WordPress media brand to his partner, Cory Miller.
Kicking off his his farewell post, A New Era for Post Status, Brian states:
“It has been an extreme privilege to create and run this community — and see it blossom into a wonderful entity with its own identity. In the last few years, I’ve worked to bring more voices and more talent into the fold, and I’m confident that I leave Post Status in very able hands.”
I had a chance to Interview Cory Miller about the transition, and here’s what he had to say. (Hit play on the podcast, reader!)

Stackable Gutenberg page builder founder Benjamin Intal was interviewed on the WP Jukebox podcast delivering his outlook on the now competitive Gutenberg block landscape as compared to his start back in 2018. Note the use of the phrase, “Gutenberg page builder” a noteworthy and intentional title in his pitch about the company.
Affiliate Royale has re-branded to EasyAffiliate. You can see the whole new brand and website at EasyAffiliate.com. It’s a CaseProof owned company which includes PrettyLink and MemberPress, both of which owner Blair Williams entered into the
Awesome Motive accelerator WP Beginner Growth Accelerator program, a Syed Balkhi owned initiative.
