It’s back! There is now an official WordPress theme repository once again. It has been long coming, and seems to work rather well, but there is limited choice right now in what you will find.

Sorry for the one day delay in getting this episode out. I had the worst day in a long time yesterday, and wasn’t really in the podcasting mood. Tomorrow is another episode of WordPress in Review, so check out that tomorrow. Also, if you are interested in hearing more podcasting on this blog, please let me know as I would love to focus on bringing more audio content to this blog.

WordPress in Review Podcast: Episode 2

It is still before midnight as I am getting this up, so I stuck to my own internal promise of getting this episode out within a week. I would love to continue to produce new episodes weekly, but I won’t promise that just yet.

This week I talk about WordPress 2.6, it is finally here and does it bring anything good to the table? I also talk about issues with WordPress 2.6, mention the theme of the week, and talk about the WordPress Weekly podcast. Stick around until the end for what might be a cool podcasting related announcement.

XFEP Blog Tip Podcast: Episode 2

This weeks episode doesn’t have any links in the show notes because the topic is something simple, and something I don’t think has really been covered very often in the blogosphere, especially in the professional blogging scene, and that is making sure you fully understand the roles and responsibilities in your job, and to never accept a gentleman’s handshake, or rather, anything less than a basic contract.

If I sound a little solemn in this episode, it is because I have some stuff going on in my life right now, but I hope you will all enjoy the content.

Check back next week for another blogging related tip.
