A Week In The Workshop 173



In this one I'm talking through the recent Berlin trip with Amazon, there's a little bit of housekeeping about the site and the forum, and there's some preview footage of a collaborative video with Robin Clevett.


Enjoy! P

Good to here your time in Berlin was well spent. I haven't had any issues with the site/forum and quie like it a lot, admittedly I've never done a Patreon or Youtube member subscription so I don't have anything to compare it to. You seem genuinely inspired/motivated to try some new things and that's always what you want when you go to a conference!

Thanks Paul! Yes, a very inspiring couple of days, and very keen to put things into practise. Already started tbh, and more to come. 👍👍

Interesting video Peter, really was a ‘what I did this week’ video.


I like the ‘idea list’ you’ve created, definitely something to build on. I know you have a list of links on the bottom of the videos but sometimes its hard to find one particular item you’ve used - I don’t think you’ve updated the ‘tools I use’ since moving to the Wix platform and that has been useful in the past.


Personally I find Wordpress is OK, I’ve published a few blog style sites on it and it seems to be easy enough to use. I’ve also managed and editing a Wix hosted webste and I found the interface was awful. Having to manually edit each page …

Hi Geoffrey. Yes, that's what I did this week - caught up with some very smart young people running very successful businesses with nothing but a smart phone, some of them. Mighty impressive. Re websites, it's horses for courses; I occasionally look at Facebook and have no idea what I'm supposed to do with it - and I get exactly that feeling with Wordpress! We ran the podcast website on Wordpress, and even with Gosforth Andy - who has spent his life in Wordpress, basically - running it we had endless security issues and constant plugin updates required. Wix works for me, and I don't have the issues you mention, so perhaps that was on the older CMS, or perhaps…

Who wants to see Peter putting into practice his new found knowledge of nail varnish on his own hands?


I would be happy to donate to a good cause for that 🤣

I generally start with a P120, then finish with P180, vacuuming thoroughly before a simple spray-on lacquer, or sometimes a wax finish, depending on durability needed... 😂 I feel an April 1st instagram or YouTube Short coming on! 😆
