5 must-follow WordPress blogs

Search “WordPress Blog” and you won’t come up with a blog about WordPress.  You’ll find one of the billions of websites powered by our favorite CMS, WordPress.  Instead of search overload, take this list as the beginning of your “must have” list of WordPress resources.

  1. WordPress.org Development Blog
  2. Smashing Magazine (about design in general, but they love WP over there)
  3. ProBlogDesign
  4. Matt Mullenweg‘s blog (the founder of WordPress)
  5. Blogging Pro

Social Media + Google to Find Free Blog Resources Easily

Using Google with some basic knowledge on advanced searching techniques you can find some high quality free resources which have typically been set up as digg bait on social media sites. The results of using Google over searching through the sites individually are much better, try for yourself by typing some of the following terms.

To search popular posts on digg type the following into Google:

  • site:Digg.com Free Icons
  • site:Digg.com Free Vectors
  • site:Digg.com Free Clipart
  • site:Digg.com Free graphics

This also works for other social media sites:

  • site:stumbleupon.com Free graphics
  • site:del.icio.us free icons
  • site:reddit.com free icons

The “site:” part of the search term specifies the site that you are asking Google to search and the rest is the specific search you want it to look for. Good Luck.
