"My Mission Is To Help People In Creating A Professional Website And Provide Them With The Best Online Tools"
Hi, my name is Ferdy Korpershoek. I was born in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, in 1986. I grew up in Maassluis, a nice city near Rotterdam. Ever since I was little I had a lot of hobby’s and things I liked to do. For example I played soccer and learned to play the guitar, the piano and learned a bit of singing (funny song of me). But sometimes it was hard to spend my time at all the things I liked to do and to become better at these things, because my attention was divided.
When I grew older I started to work with Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Dreamweaver, Joomla and WordPress. At this time I had the same problem as I had when I was younger: because of the broad area of things I liked to do, I never really excelled in one of them. I went from one hobby to another one and back and forth.
A few years ago I decided to focus on fewer things and fewer hobby’s. I really wanted Photography, Videography, Webdesign and teaching to be my points of focus, even so that I made my job out of it. These are the things I want to excell in!
Since 2014 I’ve been having my own business in videography, photography and webdesign. Besides this business I like to work for WordPressKing, which is one of my greatest hobby’s in which I can teach people. I love to search the internet to learn how to use a theme. Then I like to make a tutorial about it, so that people, like you, don’t have to search the whole internet again!
Further: I’ve been married since November 20th, 2015. My wife works parttime and in the spare time she works for our business. I really enjoy working together and we make a great team!
Well, that was a little bit of info about me!
How it all began
I love making websites in WordPress! I started in 2007 with the CMS Joomla, but there were quite a few things that I did not like about the software. So when WordPress came around the corner I gave it a try after a lot of hesitation. It worked so smooth and easy compared to Joomla. Beside my good experiences with working with WordPress, there were moments that I had some issues with WordPress websites that needed to be fixed. Also there were times that I had no clue about how to use a plugin that I had just installed. For this kind of issues I had to search the whole internet in order to find solutions. Sometimes this took me hours and a lot of frustration.
started to dream for a portal where people could find the answers on their problems and could find tutorials on how to make websites an install plugins without searching through the whole internet. I had this plan in 2012 but someone told me that that would be nothing for me. So I buried that dream. But after a while the desire (and need) became bigger! So at the end of 2014 ferdykorpershoek.com was created! I had to get used to teach in English but it is getting better and better!
I was blown away by the feedback and reactions of people! People seem to be very happy with the help that I offer. Wow! That makes me feel so humble and thankful. I can help people all around the world while I am sleeping or doing others things!
I want ferdykorpershoek.com to be a platform where you, as WordPress user, can find all the answers you need on WordPress matters. This is what I am aiming for and this is what ferdykorpershoek.com is all about.
