The Word Press

For a while now, I’ve been referring to the WordPress news media as the “Word Press”. When I was leading the 4.2 release, I made a special point of trying to keep the Word Press informed on what we were doing.

Anyway, the name stuck (in my own mind at least).

So who are the current Word Press you ask? Well, the big players right now are (in no particular order):

There are also a few more sites I’d consider to be part of the  Word Press, though all of them seem to have fallen out of date. They are:

And In aggregator land, the big players currently include:

Old News

Over the years, there have also been several other prominent members of the Word Press that have dropped off or folded for various reasons.

The big three that spring to mind are:

  • WP Candy, (Ryan Imel)
  • Weblog Tools Collection (Mark Ghosh)
  • WP Daily (John Saddington) – though it’s worth noting that Torque acquired and now hosts the archives for WP Daily

Do you have a favorite WordPress news site/blog/feed/newsletter you think is missing from this list?
