In case you missed it, a quick recap of the past week on WordPress.com, from community updates to great blogs to discover.
Monday Morning Edition
Before starting a new week on WordPress.com, be sure to check out the features that made a splash on Hot Off the Press last week:
- We introduced two beautiful new themes, Designfolio and Pictorico, and chatted with a few bloggers on how they chose their themes.
- If you were looking for help on how to make your site more visible, we had some handy SEO tips for you.
- Readers loved hearing about recently published WordPress.com authors, and to learn about Automatticians participating in a monthly blogging challenge.
- We were honored to talk to Archbishop Desmond Tutu about his Global Forgiveness Challenge.
Pro tip of the week: Do you have a lot to say about another post, but don’t wish to crowd someone else’s comment section?
