I am looking for the essential weblogs / references / sites to place in my bookmark collection / sidebar.

Is it possible that add a) either a link to existing bookmark collections b) additional sites that need to be here?

  • sorting will be done based on alexa ranking to make the sorting honest
  • if a person works at automattic place that tag behind
  • if he has a nickname / nickname on here / different site name place it behind it
  • if he/she has a profile on here place it behind it

    This list doesn't seem very useful to me in its current form. Would you consider revising the question structure such that each site gets an answer, which can then be voted up, so that the best/most useful sites will be easier to find? As it is, it's a rather generic (appearing) list of dozens of websites, and I suspect most people won't have the time to visit all of them to find the best ones themselves. Nov 17 '10 at 4:20
  • im reorganizing it a bit

  • Removed the post_class() section since a) it's not essential by any stretch of the imagination and b) they weren't blogs, but single articles.

Blogs of a few core committers and regular core contributors you've missed:

Many more names here (cursory googling will reveal their blogs in most cases):


Oh, and the most reputable users from this site are probably good to add as well.

  • adding them now :)

  • The hakre url was erroneous, sorry. It's on .com, not .org. :-) Nov 16 '10 at 1:01
  • Also added filosofo to the list. In case it helps you to find other contributor blogs, I had to google: filosofo wordpress. Nov 16 '10 at 1:06
  • Also, if you want former regular contributors who moved on to something else, consider asymptomatic.net (Owen Winkler), skippy.net (Skippy) and elliottback.com/wp (Elliott Back). Nov 16 '10 at 1:11

    @bueltge: question was asking for website links, not too sure what else should go in there. Jul 8 '16 at 13:30

A couple more to add:

Otto on Wordpress


  • added, viper was already on there with his full name :)
