Remember, I have been talking about some big project inside my head since past few weeks in my past few posts? Well, it’s finally nearly there. I got a lot of cool names that would be perfect for what I’m working on, but availability of ‘cool’ names with a .com TLD is what put me into trouble. However, now I’m fine and I think the name is good enough for what is coming in a week, Express Bloggers!
As I told earlier, I started working on Express Bloggers as soon as WordPress 3 was released. I started writing the pages and modifying the theme on another blog. Once a file is all done, I just copied that and pasted into the Express Bloggers’ file. You know, I didn’t want to mess up with any files of expressbloggers.com; so I just took an experimental blog and did every experiment, plugin test, theme customization test, etc.
And now, things are almost done. I’m expecting that the first Public Beta of Express Blogger will go live within a week. Once it’s up, users will be able to register [for free, do I need to say this? 😀 ] and start blogging right away on any topic they like. It will be a community among the youth of Bangladesh who love blogging in English. It will also bridge the gap between those English-loving bloggers and real English speakers, a.k.a. foreigners. I invite anyone living in any part of the world to join Express Bloggers and make it their regular diary.
Help spread the word
After a few weeks of launch, I will start promoting it in various way so that we can get some newbie bloggers on board. I have plan to distribute leaflets/brochures among the student of English medium schools and colleges. If you are interested, you may contact me. You may promote it wherever you are — say it a university, a college, a school, or maybe in your office. Just gather some enthusiastic people/students, and let them know about us. I’m sure once they step in, they will find it very interesting and fun.
After all, blogging is definitely fun. What do you say? Isn’t it?
Stay in touch with Express Bloggers and register as soon as the site goes up. You may also keep in touch with this blog, because after launching the site, the first thing I’ll do is publish a post on this blog. 😀
