When Remkus asked me if I wanted to be involved with WP Realm, I was pretty excited.

WP Realm is a
soon-to-be-launched blog concerning all things WordPress. This is a non-commercial community blog, focusing on the WordPress community worldwide, and redressing a current imbalance in WordPress blogs that are too often US-centric. That means reporting on WordPress news and events across the world, from France to Serbia to China to India to South Africa to the USA and everywhere in between! Our focus will be on WordPress businesses, blogs, events, people and services. As a community project, we’d love for you to get involved, whether it’s helping with the design and development, to reporting the news, to writing an editorial, or just giving us your feedback.
WP Realm will be published in English, but we invite contributions from anyone, no matter what your first language is. Articles don’t need to be in perfect English as everything will be edited before being published. Follow the project or get in touch to get involved.
