Finally, WordPress has rolled out its much-awaited major release, WordPress version 3. Good. That’s what I have been waiting for. In an earlier post, I wrote that there is something big on my mind that I will start carrying out when WordPress version 3 is available.
I used to check WordPress.org everyday as soon as I came online. It became my regular task since past few weeks after I had read detailed information about WordPress 3. Well, I always used to see that blue button saying “Download WordPress 2.9.2” and used to get mad at Matt. Several times I opened up “Add New Post” on dashboard to write a few words expressing my anger at Matt for teasing us — me and millions of WordPress users — by taking too much time to release the ultimate version. My anger knew no bound when I saw that WordPress team released Release Candidate 3 *hoping* that will be the final RC version before the full and final release. Come on, you gotta be kidding me!
But this came all on a sudden. I was on Facebook, and I saw one of my friends’ status saying that WordPress 3 is out. I immediately ran towards WordPress.org and found that the status was true. WordPress 3 is finally here.
I’m so excited not because WordPress 3 has so many new features. I have already tried the Release Candidate 1 version which included all the new features. So, I now know how WordPress 3 tastes. And the answer is, sweet!
I’m already in love with WordPress’ new theme, Twenty Ten, which I wrote about on my blog earlier when the theme was rolled out to us — the WordPress.com users. I totally love it. Do you just see how smart and handsome this theme is? Oh, it’s a damn genius creation I wouldn’t mind paying for to buy. Well, I wondered how such a gorgeous theme was given away for free! Not only that, it’s added as a default theme! Cool! You gotta check it out.
Anyway, now is the time to move forward with my project. As I already wrote in my earlier post, it would be a blog where anyone can register and write; just like here in WordPress.com. The difference is they won’t be able to register for separate blogs. They will be blogging on a single platform. I want to create a completely different cycle of Bangladeshi (and foreigners as well) people who like blogging in English. And my plan is to reach those people who actually never blogged before.
Let’s see how many bloggers can we create by the new platform I’ll introduce in weeks.
PS: Thank you, Matt and everyone at the WordPress backend, for finally releasing WordPress 3 and making web-publishing goddamn easy!
