15 Years at WordPress.com

Stumble upon WordPress.com

Nice! I just noticed that Stumbleupon support WordPress.com by adding the WordPress.com favicon to the SU taskbar.

A Christmas Story

Take five minutes out of your busy day and read Mike’s short story about his visit to Santa. It’s a good read! One of the great things about working on WordPress.com is that I come across brilliant posts like this one. Granted, his blog is in the top 10 most […]


Me and WordPress.com

Matt finally reveals what perhaps a few people have known or suspected for quite a while. I’m working with him, Andy and Ryan on WordPress.com. I am very very happy with what we’ve achieved so far and can’t wait to get cracking on the new features planned! That does explain […]
