Two Months of Celebrating Blogging and WordPress

WordPress.com NewsAt the amazing conference a couple weeks ago, I realized that I’d been staying a bit too exclusive for my personal tastes with this blog. What started out as a test site for has turned into a entity of its own.

To celebrate the two year anniversary of WordPress.com and , I’m opening the flood gates to my favorite WordPress bloggers to guest blog here, bringing you the brightest of the brightest and the best of the best.

August will be all about blogging (with WordPress news if there is some). September will be non-stop WordPress Tips, many coming from those who have practically invented many of the WordPress Tips.

We begin with the only guest blogger I’ve allowed to date on this blog, Greg Balanko-Dickson, whose insightful life coaching and business wisdom has guided myself and many others through the rough road of life, work, and blogging. If I was to start writing & blogging today I would… takes a look back at “what if I could do it better”, an attitude where we learn more from the mistakes we made than the lessons we learn.

And welcome to another favorite fellow WordPress.com blogger, Engtech of Internet Duct Tape reporting on the fantastic Sandbox Theme for WordPress Design Competition.

Hang on for a balloon and gift-filled two months as we celebrate all things blogging and WordPress here! And thanks in advance to all my wonderful guest bloggers for helping me share the love of blogging and WordPress with everyone.

    Hooray for the celebration! Thanks for all the tips you’ve offered along the way, Lorelle. Even though I’m not nearly the blogger that you are, I’ve learned a great deal from your blog. So thank you for all that you’ve shared.

    Tim: I’m celebrating two years of WordPress.com and Lorelle on WordPress over two months, so it is two months of celebrating with guest bloggers and fun and surprises.

    I couldn’t keep up all this jolly for two more years…could I?
