While possibly not the most exciting topic in the world (unless you really care about blogging and blog design or are just a WordPress geek), check out my interview about WordPress plugins on the newly launched WordPress Publisher Blog. Over the past year or so Raanan and the rest of the crew at Automattic have been very helpful for myself and Watershed Studio and I thank them for the opportunity to be included on their newly launched blog.
Jason Burns recently started up Take My Tech where he is giving away his spare tech related items to a random commenter (once there are 100 comments on a post…see the initial announcement).Â This sounds like a pretty neat concept for a blog and along the lines of an idea I have to clear out some of my excess “stuff” (launching soon hopefully).Â I’m going to keep my eye on this one and am hoping that it turns out to be a success.Â (And another plus in my book…the site is running WordPress.)
WordPress 2.1 Ella was released last week with a host of additions, updates & bug fixes as well as an improved API for plugin development. Check out the Watershed Studio Blog for details and information about WordPress consulting help in migrating from WordPress 2.0.x to WordPress 2.1.
