The WPMU DEV Blog is the content arm of WPMU Dev, the largest WordPress plugin store in operation today. The blog and the store started off life with a strong leaning towards WordPress Multisite users, but their scope has since expanded to cover all aspects of WordPress.
The blog features the latest news and reviews of plugins, themes, and WordPress-related services, plus a steady stream of useful tips and tutorials to help WordPress users make the most of their sites. The regular blog content is now joined by the newly launched WhiP newsletter, a daily source of news, and must-read content from the world of WordPress and beyond.
While some WordPress blogs pump out top 10 theme and plugin lists on an almost daily basis, the WPMU DEV blog team take a more in-depth approach to reviewing WordPress products. This can be seen in their multi-part series on finding the best web host, or the best theme sellers. However, if you are looking for a quick top 10 roundup, the team don’t disappoint on that front either.
Who is Behind WPMU Dev and its Blog?
WPMU Dev and the blog is owned and operated by Inscub who also own and operate Edublogs. This means the project is presided over by entrepreneur James Farmer, who himself has an interesting story covering how he made his way from a non-technical background to where he is today.
As well as the input from James, the WPMU Blog is a multi-author project. This allows the team to publish content on a daily basis. The core team of current contributors have been joined by many others over the years that have gone onto work on a number of other notable WordPress projects including WP Tavern and beyond.
The team are always on the lookout for new talent, so if you have a story to tell, then check out the write for us page.
