WordPress 2.7 is Now Available for Your Blog or Website

Dec 11, 2008

WordPress.org - Blogging Made EasyWordPress version 2.7 was installed on WordPress.com blogs a few weeks ago, and it is now available for download on WordPress.org for installation on 3rd-party hosted blogs and websites.

If you haven’t checked out WordPress yet, I encourage you to go to WordPress.com and create a free blog. It takes about 10 minutes, maybe less.

McBuzz offers a collection of free WordPress tutorials. The downside of all the recent upgrades of WordPress is that many of these tutorials are done using version 2.3 or 2.5. The new version’s interface is quite a bit different from either of these. Time for some new WordPress tutorials!

In January, partner Wayne Bishop and I will begin offering our Intro seminars on Social Media for business marketing, communications and collaboration again. We always manage to talk about WordPress as part of our introduction to blogging in our Introducing Web 2.0 seminar. Please let me know what other kinds of topics you would like to see covered.

I’m also planning to offer a seminar devoted exclusively to Blogging as part of Web 2.0 – based on the same material in my recent Blogging 101 presentation.

And, if you would like to check out a state-of-the-art social-networking-for-business website, I encourage you to look at – and join – Biznik. Basic membership is free. The founders rock, and the network is awesome.
