WordPress Louisville December Meetup

It was a pleasure to speak on The New WordPress.com, “Calypso,” at our December meetup for WordPress Louisville. I didn’t do much by way of slides, but if you’d like to run through them again or would like access to some of the links I mentioned, I’ve got them after the jump.

Snow on WordPress.com

I’m not generally into winter or holidays. Rather ‘bah, humbug,’ I am. But I really do like the Snow setting on my WordPress.com blog. I will let it fall without end. Enjoy now until the beginning of January, the 4th I believe.
