On episode 53 of WordPress Weekly, David and I had a chance to talk with Daniel Scocco who is the man behind the popular (and I do mean popular) site DailyBlogTips.com Daniel has used WordPress for DBT since 2005 and he also publishes reviews about a ton of WordPress plugins and themes so it made sense to have him on the show. However, the show wasn’t all about WordPress as we also discussed content generation, monetization, what it’s like to be in the Technorati top 100, and much more.

WordPress Tavern Listener Poll:
Each week from now on, I’ll be featuring a new listener poll question on WPTavern.com The poll is located in the sidebar on the right hand side of the site.
Last weeks poll question was: Is Blogging dying because of Facebook, Twitter, etc?
Out of a total of 36 votes, 23 of you said it’s just evolving, 12 of you voted no and 1 of you voted yes.
This Weeks Poll Question Is: Do you take into consideration whether a theme is licensed under the GPL or not before you purchase it?
Plugin Picks Of The Week:
Jeff – Odiogo Listen Button – Odiogo.com is a service that takes your text based blog posts and provides a listen button where end users can listen to a synthesized voice read the blog post. This makes your blog a little more accessible to those with vision problems. The voice isn’t bad but you can tell we still have a long way to go for natural sounding speech.
David – WordPress File Monitor – Checks to see if any files have been changed. Very important as code insertion hacks happen fairly often if your permissions aren’t set up correctly.
WordPress Trivia Question:
Which version of WordPress was named after a core developers son?
