Well, it’s been a while since you’ve seen my byline around here at Copyblogger, but that’s for a few good reasons — I’ve had my head down and been working hard over at StudioPress (specifically, the all-new StudioPress Sites you’ve been hearing about).
If you’re interested in checking it out, you’ll see that the StudioPress site looks quite different from how it has in the recent past, and that’s because we’ve been making the experience over there the best we possibly can for our customers.
That, and we’ve been building the next generation of StudioPress.
Here’s what we’ve been up to …
Introducing the brand-new, shiny StudioPress blog
A few weeks ago, we launched a new blog at StudioPress!
If you take a look at the address bar, you’ll see we’re using the .blog extension. You might be wondering why we chose to go that route, rather than just continue the blog on the main StudioPress.com site.
Our friends over at Automattic started serving up .blog domains late last year, and we jumped at the opportunity to secure this domain, along with a few other branded domains that made sense for our company.
I personally thought it would be a fun way to try something new but still keep a cohesive look between our main site and the blog. We are considering this an experiment.
On the StudioPress blog we’ll be publishing fresh content, including what’s new at StudioPress, announcements about theme releases, expert advice from our friends in the community, episodes of StudioPress FM, and replays of StudioPress Live — more on that in a bit.
Head over to the Official StudioPress Blog — the premier publishing resource for designers, developers, and bloggers.
Check, check, is this thing on?
Speaking of experiments, one thing I’m really excited about is our new initiative called StudioPress Live. Each week, I’m answering your questions live on our Facebook page.
Whether you’re a designer, developer, blogger, or some kind of in-between hybrid, this is the perfect opportunity to get your questions answered … find out what’s new at StudioPress, talk digital business, keep up with the Genesis community, and geek out on all things WordPress.
Join me (for now) on the StudioPress Facebook page, Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. Central Time.
Oh, and I’ll be seeing you around Copyblogger a little more often in the future as well. More soon!
