Pre-Order Professional WordPress Second Edition

Professional WordPress Second Edition is now available for pre-order on Amazon!

A lot has changed with WordPress since the original book was released, which was written for WordPress version 2.9. The second edition, written around WordPress version 3.5, is jam packed with awesome WordPress knowledge. Not only did we update every single chapter in the book, we added some completely new chapters! The second edition features an entire chapter dedicated to custom post types and taxonomies. We also dedicated an entire chapter to WordPress Multisite, the powerful Network feature available in WordPress.

The book is scheduled to be released on January 1st, 2013. Make sure you pre-order your copy of Professional WordPress Second Edition today!

I just finished the process of moving my blog over to! I was becoming very frustrated with the speed of my site and knew WP Engine could fix my load speed issues. As you can probably tell the website is already loading much faster! If you are looking for top-notch WordPress hosting, I highly recommend them.

You may have also noticed I switched to a different theme. I’m planning on working on my blog more this winter, including adding the ability to push all mobile photos I take directly into my blog. I really want to start blogging more and new features like that will help. Stay tuned for some big updates to!

WordCamp Philly is Next Week!

WordCamp Philly 2012 is next weekend! For a third year in a row I am a co-organizer of WordCamp Philly.

This year we have a packed schedule with some amazing speakers. The entire event will be Halloween themed, which you know I love, so I can’t wait to see all the costumes attendees and speakers will be wearing during the event.

We’re working hard to make sure this year’s WordCamp Philly is even better than last year! If you haven’t already registered get your ticket¬†before they sell out. ¬†It’s time for another WordCamp, Illy Philly style!
