I had an idea of something I would like to see on WordPress.com. Traditionally on an about page you talk about yourself, the author of the blog. However, on my blog I thought it would be neat to have a spot on the about page for my blog itself. Your blog is kinda like your co-author, nothing would get published without him (it?). It would be nice to have some way to showcase the great things about your blog. Here are some of the things that I think would be cool to have in an “About this Blog” shortcode.
- Age in blog years (not sure how I’m going to calculate this yet )
- Number of words used across the entire site
- Number of media files separated by media type, maybe have it display the total number of pixels for all images
- The theme being used
- Any upgrades being used
- The site stats
- Number of posts
- Number of pages
- Number of comments
- Number of commenters
- Number of followers
- Number of categories
- Number of tags
Really awesome talk on introverts, which I am in case you don’t know me which is highly likely as I’m an introvert . I also bought Susan Cain’s book today so I hope to share more with you about it soon.
Today I decided to look up some of my favorite authors to see what kind of web presence they have and I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of WordPress. Now I just need to figure out a way to get them on WordPress.com .
Ok, the intro video is a little corny but their videos are top notch, they just need to get some WordPress ones .
