There’s no denying it, WordPress is a big thing, so are WordCamps, and 2012 was bigger and better than ever for the popular WordPress conferences! There were a total of 67 WordCamps this year, up from 52 last year, with 34 in the US and 33 outside of the US, serving over 17,000 attendees, with 967 sessions and 877 speakers, all made possible by 498 generous sponsors! The amount of WordCamp videos published to WordPress.tv this year almost doubled to 445, probably due to the expansion of WordCamp Central’s video camera kit program, which does its best to make sure that every WordCamp has an affordable way to record every session. The program now holds 8 kits in the US, 3 in Canada, and 2 in Europe, so there’s probably a good chance that there’s a kit available for your WordCamp if you need it. To kickoff 2013, the WordPress […]

WordPress has had a rather exciting year, all covered in their handy A Look Back post. 2012 saw two major WordPress releases, addressing primarily theme customization and media management. There were also five security releases, a new default theme, and a record number of code contributions in the 3.5 release. The site itself also saw some improvements, including a new plugin page design with plugin and theme reviews, and Make.WordPress.org, a network of sites where teams and contributors can easily communicate with each other. Speaking of teams and contributors, 2012 also saw the very first WordPress Community Summit, a 2-day event attended by 108 of the top WordPress development, support, and overall community volunteers. 2012 was certainly a big year for WordPress, and with planning for WordPress 3.6 already underway, it looks like they’re going to hit the ground running in 2013.

bbpress, WordPress Plugins

bbPress, the forum “cousin” of WordPress, has had a rather exciting year in 2012, and it’s all been wrapped up with a nice bow in their year in review post. Over the course of 2012, bbPress has seen two major version releases, a new core committer, and a redesigned site with an emphasis on showcasing and supporting bbPress. In 2013, the team plans to focus on improved searching, more integration with BuddyPress, and various performance improvements.

About two weeks about, we asked what your blogging resolutions were for this year. Similar to last year, most of you mentioned a plan to post more often in 2012. There are many ways to find more things to write about out. On of the most fun is to just plug yourself into various social media outlets, like Twitter and Facebook, and just follow along to find topics that interest you. Instead of replying with a 140 character tweet, write a fully detailed post on your blog. Similarly, if you comment on someone else’s blog, you might want to write a blog post to go with it. If social networking isn’t your thing, and you’d prefer just some direct inspiration, stop by The Daily Post or Plinky for daily challenges and topics that might inspire you to write a quick post. If words really aren’t your thing, but you still […]

It’s the new year, so what does that mean for you and your blog? Are you going to pick a new theme, maybe customize the one you have, perhaps blog about more things and spice up your posts with some added media and links, or maybe something as simple as just blogging with an up-to-date browser? Last year, I made a resolution to blog more often on my personal blog. I definitely met that goal with 107 posts in 2011 vs. a meager 28 in 2010. This year, I’m aiming for even more. How about you? What’s your 2012 blogging resolution?
