A Brief Introduction

Posted March 13, 2004 by Ryan Boren. Filed under Newsletter.

A couple of weeks ago, I replied to this post in the forums. This past Thursday, I was informed by Matt that because I was the best-looking most qualified of all the candidates, he was offering me the position of informally reporting on the WordPress scene, should I choose to take it. Obviously, I did, and here I am.

In case you’re wondering who I am, let me briefly introduce myself. My name is Cena Mayo, I’m from the Great State of Louisiana (USA), and I’ve been using WordPress since July, 2003. I never used b2, and my only prior experience with open-source CMS/blog scripts came from a frustrating year spent within the PostNuke camp. As great as WordPress is, I’ve discovered that trying out the various hacks, templates, and updating it to the latest CVS on a daily basis doesn’t do much towards producing actual, y’know, content.

But enough about me. What we’re going to be doing here (for the time being) is updating the devblog regularly with more informal content such as useful tips, interviews, interesting forum threads, announcements, and the like. If there’s anything you’d like to see addressed, opinions, corrections, or other errata, feel free to email me at cena@wordpress.org.

Please note that email may be published unless explicitly requested otherwise.
