A new beginning

Filed under: — Carthik @ 4:53 pm

I run into so many interesting sites and articles related to WordPress, that I thought I should start a blog to write about them. Often, I think of writing about them in my weblog, but then decide against it, to keep the blog from decaying into a blog about wordpress.

I thought a lot before deciding on this domain name. I was surprised, in a way, to find this domain name available. Wordlog will be a log of wordpress news, collected from the support forums, the wiki, and using Feedster, Pubsub, and a few other useful search engines. I read the weblogs of many wordpress developers, and users, on a daily basis, and I hope to bring you the best from those sites too.

I routinely find it difficult to refer back to some site, when I most need to, and there is really no website, besides the Dev Blog dedicated to writing about WordPress, and the few websites with useful information are often those of plugin or hack authors, and there are so many of them! Many plugin/hack authors do not edit the wiki to announce their plugins, and some don’t post in the forums. In any case, not all wordpress users check the wiki and the forums all the time. So I hope this will be a useful endeavor.

  4. [...] ng the MT/OS Blog debate, I think, this post at a WordPress Dev Blog could be interesting: A minor debate. Of course, there’s a lot more to get out of WordPress that what’s here so far. [...]

  6. Looks good. I have been using WP since May, and have been enjoying it very much.

  7. http://bloggingpro.com/ is another blog dedicated to WordPress (it seems).

  8. Matt, bloggingpro seems to be about more than just WordPress. I could, however, syndicate content from the WP related categories over here.

  10. I love WordPress and am glad you have undertaken this blog. WordPress is so powerful, there’s no end to the things you can make it do, with the power of PHP at your fingertips. There are so many knowledgeable people out there. This is definitely going on my blogroll!

  11. MovaLog
    I’m very pleased to announce MovaLog. This weblog is MT’s counter-part of Carthik’s WordLog and I even created it for much the same reasons ! I wanted to talk a lot about MT somewhere but didn’t wish to burden my…
