WPWeekly Episode 102 – Lisas New Project

wordpressweekly1This episode of WordPress Weekly was jammed pack with information. Not only did we cover the release of WordPress 3.0 along with some of the upgrade woes starting to be reported, we were also joined by Lisa Sabin-Wilson along with Michael Torbert of the All In One SEO Plugin and Cory Miller from iThemes. After we caught up with Lisa regarding WordCamp Chicago, we talked about a brand new project that she is undertaking with four other collaborators. This project is a new book called the WordPress All In One Desk Reference.

Let’s face it – a For Dummies book is meant to be for beginners and intermediate users, right? But what about a book that covers the WHOLE gammut? A reference book that is useful for a wide variety of users – -so that beginners can start with it, and as they continue to grow – can continue to use the resource to step into areas of WordPress that they may never have tried before.

This discussion lead to me signing the contract for a brand new WordPress related book under the Wiley Publishing roof. This new book is in the process of being written right now and it is slated to be a 940 page book (approximately) and it is called … The WordPress All In One Desk Reference.

Congratulations to Lisa and her four collaborators on the book deal. Not to be overshadowed, but the 3rd edition of WordPress For Dummies has also been released. This book has practically been rewritten to include Multi Site and WordPress 3.0 information.

  1. Want to mention here all the folks who are involved with the WordPress All In One Desk Reference project – – I surely don’t think I could write a 900+ page book all by myself! haha: Andrea Rennick, Michael Torbert, Cory Miller, Kevin Palmer ..and myself

    Everyone writing portions of the book based on their individual areas of expertise.

    Thanks for taking the time today, Jeff – I always have such a good time on your show :)
