By which I mean that I’m hosting, but Meetup sent me a reminder. We’re going to be talking Gutenberg, and if there’s interest I might quickly demo the recently announced support of plugins and themes on the WordPress.com Business plan. RSVP for the event on Meetup.com, and note we have a new location. August WordPress Meetup […]

Centering Embeds on WordPress.com
One of the cool things WordPress.com handles is media embeds. Instead of messing around with a bunch of embed codes, your WordPress.com site is setup to use oEmbed. This means if you want to share something like a YouTube video, you can just put the YouTube video’s link into your post and we handle the rest. The tricky […]
Just got done telling everybody at WordPress Louisville about the new WordPress.com and the WordPress.com Mac app last night. Today the app for Windows got released! You can download the app for Windows (or Mac) at https://desktop.wordpress.com/
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.
A couple weeks ago we launched the New WordPress.com, a project we code-named “Calypso” at Automattic. If you’d like to hear more about Calypso, I’ll be speaking about it for tomorrow’s meeting of WordPress Louisville. The meeting starts at 6:15pm on Tuesday, Dec. 8th. Hosted by Mirazon Group at 1640 Lyndon Farm Court #102, Louisville, KY, 40223. […]

Launching the New WordPress.com
It’s been really fun at Automattic as we built the new WordPress.com. It’s cool to manage a WordPress site so quickly and beautifully. On top of that, it made building the WordPress.com for Mac app a reality. I’ve been beta-testing the app for a month or so now and have been really pleased with it. If nothing else, […]
Password Protected Baby Photos
So it’s still news to a lot of folks that my wife and I are expecting a baby. One of the things we’ve talked about is how we’re going to distribute info about this kiddo as it grows up. So many people our age put all kinds of pictures up on Facebook and other social […]
Learning to Blog
The editorial folks at WordPress.com have done a lot of work making Blogging University courses, teaching folks how to make the most of their shiny new WordPress blogs. They’re really helpful and include a commons area to interact with the other folks taking the course and help from staff members like me. And they’re free! I’ll […]
