There comes a time when you can only add so much to a simple blog before you hit a limit on what you can do with it.
This is what happened to the MacStories website, prompting the founder and his team to put a radical plan in action to transform and expand the website into a unified multimedia experience.
The Founder and Editor-in-Chief, Federico Viticci, and Managing Editor John Voorhees joined episode 8, season 2 of The Craft of Code podcast to share how they’re building an exciting future for the website.
MacStories started out as a simple daily publication about all things Apple. Today, it’s much more than just a blog. It’s the central hub of a family that includes Club MacStories, a membership site, AppStories, a weekly podcast about apps, and MacStories Unwind, a weekly podcast about everything happening at MacStories.
In this episode, we discussed:
How MacStories originally started
The redesign process needed for MacStories
Why Federico wants MacStories to become a unified experience
How MacStories came to have its own CMS
Why MacStories partnered with Linode
Why WordPress was too limiting for MacStories’ future
