Partnering with Post Status

By Drew Strojny on July 11, 2013

I don’t follow many WordPress news sites. They’re usually too noisy for my taste, and much of the content is just recycling existing news from elsewhere in the community. One exception, that’s slowly become my go to source, is Post Status. The founder of Post Status, Brian Krogsgard, has developed a reputation for covering WordPress over the past few years. He’s written close to two-hundred articles for WPCandy, and posted some great content on his personal site. He’s also developed a discerning eye for WordPress news and knows how to separate the wheat from the chaff.

Brian’s taking a new approach to WordPress news with Post Status. Rather than repurposing existing news as new content, he’s linking directly to the original source and including brief and insightful commentary. Brian’s unique experience and involvement in the WordPress community makes his insight especially clear and refreshing. He’s also started to work some excellent long-form articles into the mix over the past few months, which has added a nice balance to the site.

Did you know that Surf Office, Postmatic, Yeah Dave, and over 700,000 small businesses run their websites with Make, our free WordPress page builder. Discover the Make page builder now.

Post Status announced a refreshed design and focus earlier today. As part of that announcement, The Theme Foundry is now an official partner of Post Status. Brian and I want to do something different with this collaboration. We want it to be a long term partnership. The exact opposite of a quick “ad buy”. We want to keep the focus on the content, and make sure we integrate mentions of The Theme Foundry in an unobtrusive way. I couldn’t be happier with how the initial launch turned out. Post Status is great for the WordPress community, and it’s also something we’re proud to support and associate ourselves with.
