John Chow dot Com has reached another first. The blog has been selected as a showcase blog at WordrPess.org. According to WordPress, my blog was selected for the following reason:
John serves as the quintessential example of the financial power of blogging and has made it his job and his hobby to tell others just how to make the most of blogging.
As you no doubt know, WordPress.org is a very BIG site (they are the world’s biggest blogging platform) and the traffic coming from it has been significant. I would like to welcome all the new visitors. Please consider subscribing to my blog and following me on Twitter.
For all my current readers, please go to the WordPress showcase and give my blog five stars!
How To Be a WordPress Showcase Blog
Want to be featured as a WordPress showcase blog? Then go here to submit your site. Submitting your blog is the easy part. The hard part is getting selected for the showcase. Blogs and web sites powered by WordPress that make it into the Showcase are typically doing one or more of the following:
- Using WordPress in a unique or innovative way.
- Attracting tens of thousands of regular readers.
- Being written by someone famous or especially notable in his or her particular field.
- Representing a notable organization, government entity, or corporation as an official blog or web site.
While only a relatively small number of submissions are eventually added to the WordPress Showcase, a number of exceptional sites and blogs are added weekly. Only sites that are added to the Showcase will be notified via email.
You do not need to be the site’s owner to submit the site to the WordPress Showcase. However, if you do not own the site, please note that in your submission. Multiple submissions are welcome and will be considered independently of each other. It is not necessary to suggest tags or a potential description when submitting your site, but doing so can be helpful.
If you think your blog’s got what it takes to make the showcase, then go submit it!
