I saw 2 cats. Both look somewhat unamused. And ready to pounce on any intruders.

Useful check list for your new WordPress site

I found this list of useful tips on launching a WordPress site:

Things to watch out for are:

  • fast hosting
  • search-engine optimized theme

WordPress is working on a new codebase:

The new WordPress.com codebase, codenamed “Calypso,” moves WordPress.com away from MySQL and PHP. It’s built entirely in JavaScript, and communicates with WordPress.com only using our REST API.

I don’t know how this will play out for self-hosted sites. You can use Calypso functionality via Jetpack. The benefit, that I read most frequently, is that the Calypso editor is well designed for writers.
