You can now embed photos from Getty Images in your posts on WordPress.com. Since I am an iStock photographer (which is owned by Getty), you can embed any photo from my collection!
We just hit the ‘Big Green Button’ on iTunes connect to release WordPress for iOS 2.8 to the masses! The biggies in this release are Stats and a really cool ‘Quick Photo’ feature. We’ve also worked with the WordPress translation community to localize the app in 10 languages.
My team at Automattic got together last week for a meetup in Milan. We worked hard on WordPress for iOS (Version 2.8 adds Stats, internationalization and a cool Quick Photo post feature!). When we weren’t working we wandered around the city streets, deciding where to eat or grab a beer (or two).
I found Milan to be quite nice, the food was tasty! I was a bit surprised at how much Graffiti was on the walls. Apparently that’s quite standard for most large European cities. The weather was nice, but apparently warmer in Glasgow and I missed out!
This weekend we’re going to actually tour Scotland a bit, including a B&B stay on the Isle of Skye. Our dear friends Beau and Bridget are just flying in now to go on the trip with us!
Here’s a bunch of iPhone shots I took throughout the week:
Cool app from google now in the market! You can share your creation right to WordPress!
Now you can bring tweets in to your blog posts on WordPress.com! To celebrate, here’s a tweet from my favorites list:
My mom dropped my credit card in the Wal-Mart parking lot; it took 5 minutes for someone to try to buy a TV with it.—

Oh Wal-Mart, I miss you. ;)
And a bonus one that I saw today:
Had an awesome week in San Francisco meeting and working with folks from Automattic. Great team of people! Looking forward to getting home and being with Sarah and Hazel again.

Twenty Ten is here, and it’s awesome. Tons of great work went in to creating the new default WordPress theme. I love the clean lines and easy readability of the new design. I made a few tweaks (added a drop shadow to the wrapper, and changed the ‘visited’ link color). It has a ton of options, including the ability to switch to a one column layout. Very cool!
It’s been a busy few months for me. wpToGo has grown up and become the official WordPress client for Android! I added a lot of new features to it including creating and managing pages, replying to comments and a lot more! I’m also very excited to open up the app to the developer community to make the app super awesome! Video upload? Stats viewing? UI Sexiness? All should be coming :P
