Among Matt’s new year’s resolutions is to get the WordPress Community using the correct WordPress logo. He’s created a comparison image to convince everyone to use the right logo, but that wasn’t enough. Many thought the difference between the two was the color when it’s reallyl the font. So he’s created a new specific version to help you understand:
Color it whatever you want, but use the right base to start with. The font counts. When playing with the WordPress logo, start with the Official WordPress logos.
Also, WordPress is spelled WordPress not Wordpress. To make this part of his new year’s resolutions come true, he’s written a script to force Wordpress into WordPress across all of the 5 million plus blogs on WordPress.com. Instant gratification.
