The Saga Continues
WordPressWordPress was borne of initial idea seeding via B2 (Cafelog) in 2001, which was launched by Michael Valdrighi. In 2003, cofounders Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little forked B2 and created WordPress, an Open Source blogging and now content management system estimated to power the largest number of websites of any individual product (20%). Through the largest thriving community of any website management system, WordPress has grown to include theme designers, plugin developers, webmasters and site developers. With the power of participants, WP now can power anything from small individual blogs to large multi-user social communities to business websites. Core contributing developers include Ryan Boren, Mark Jaquith, Matt Mullenweg, Andrew Ozz, Peter Westwood and Andrew Nacin. WordPress has just recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary.
WPCommunityWPCommunity.com was started as an extension of Web Developer Tom Ford who found WordPress in the early days looking for a solution to power a group of large websites that had outgrown their flat HTML infrastructure. Needing more features, WordPress was chosen based on another user who was kind enough to put together a comparison chart of several platforms, with detailed information. The way this individual was able to present this side by side comparison using WordPress ultimately led to giving it a shot...which led to massive experimentation to the different things it could do. The heavy and growing demand for assistance led to offering such, bringing us to today. Tom Ford has contributed to various other development agencies including TC Websites, WPMU.org and WPML. (as well as solving countless technical issues and working through many full website builds).

WPTAVERN: RESONAR: A FREE WORDPRESS BLOG THEME DESIGNED TO SHOWCASE FEATURED ...
Resonar is an elegant WordPress blog theme that was launched in mid-March on WordPress.com and is now available to self-hosted WordPress sites. This theme makes a big impact with its strong typography and fullscreen featured images.
The homepage for Resonar is created by assigning a sticky post with a large featured image (ideally 2000px wide and 1500px high). If you frequently change this sticky post, your site will always have a fresh focal point on the homepage.
If you’re looking for a theme that highlights longform posts, Resonar fits the bill with its unique styling for blockquotes, pull quotes, overhanging images.
The centered blog layout keeps the focus on the content, but you don’t have to sacrifice widget areas to use the theme. Clicking on the ellipsis icon in the main menu will reveal a 576px-wide slide-out sidebar where you can drop in widgets and display a social links menu.
As Resonar revolves around fullscreen featured images, you’ll need to be prepared to have a 2000px by 1500px image for each post in order to keep the theme looking its best. Check out the live demo on WordPress.com to see Resonar in action. Self-hosted WordPress blog owners can download the theme from WordPress.org or install it via the admin themes browser.JUL 6, 2015

Trevor Noah, the new host of the Daily Show, was on Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee show, and it was quite interesting. I really love this show, even when it’s slow you get some fun thoughts. I would embed the video but that doesn’t seem possible.
