One of my old favourite WordPress community blogs, the WordPress Tavern, is potentially back from mothballs with its original author, Jeff Chandler.
Some of you might know that Jeff had me as his co-host for his WordPress Tavern audio podcast a few years back, called WordPress Weekly. I’ve always hoped to see him be able to find a way to make writing about WordPress a viable career option, as Jeff is an amazing guy. Unfortunately, upon selling the site, it looked like that dream had ended.
Then, just a few days ago, the blog sprang to life, and the few connections I had in the WordPress world let me know it was back. I can’t express how happy I am to see this blog back, and I hope that Jeff is given the financial opportunities to really build up the community once again. I don’t know of any sites that run a community the same way that Jeff had done, and I’m saying that as someone that had written about WordPress on various blogs for nearly five years.
We still don’t know who bought the WordPress Tavern website, though we’ve been told we will find out soon.
I hope you’ll all check out the WordPress Tavern, and welcome Jeff back.
