My GardenMuse blog has been Freshly Pressed today!

27 01 2011

Each weekday WordPress selects about ten new blog posts for the “Freshly Pressed” section of the WordPress.com homepage. According to WordPress: These posts represent how WordPress can be used to entertain, enlighten, or inspire. Getting promoted to Freshly Pressed is a major traffic win because WordPress.com receives a high volume of page views. And, we have a feed set up so people can subscribe to Freshly Pressed. Why do we do all this? It’s our way of saying we like you. We really like you.

I awoke this morning to more than a dozen comments on my garden blog, http://www.gardenmuse.wordpress.com. Several of the lovely visitor comments ended with either, “congrats on the feature” or “congrats on being FP.” FP? What is an FP? Then I realized they were congratulating me on being “Freshly Pressed.” I went directly to the main WordPress.com homepage and voila! I had been Freshly Pressed. Thanks for making my day, WordPress!
