Hi. My name is Lawrence and I’m a web developer, long-time user of WordPress, and an advocate for content management systems that are both easy and fast.

WordPress is, and can be, blazing fast. But you wouldn’t know it in today’s age.

The average person’s impression of WordPress is that it is bloated, slow, and insufficient for modern website building.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

However, for enterprise and large-scale deployments of WordPress, it is now a challenge to twist WordPress to work as fast an efficient as it otherwise does.

I’m here to help.

On Performant Press, I’ll help give you tips and strategies to making your installation of WordPress be the best it can be.

Most of what I write will be for advanced users, administrators, and web developers.

Most of what is here is for those who have the time to get into the nitty-gritty, so that their WordPress website runs at absolute top-speed. Smaller businesses and bloggers can take advantage of these tips also, but I focus on solutions for high traffic websites.

Thank you for stopping to visit. If you have a question, send it to me at my email address of lawrence@________ (this website domain). I’ll try to answer all questions on this blog and post frequently.
