Thoughts from Matt Mullenweg’s 2012 State of the Word given at WordCamp San Francisco this past weekend and that we may see arriving here on WordPress.com.
- The ability to create Galleries from images already in your Media Library and not necessarily only from images attached to your post.
- Continued integration of NUX (New User Experience) messages.
- More mobile from both the user and visitor ends.
One thing Matt mentioned was the rate of attrition of WordPress bloggers and trying to turn that back into user engagement. Hear, hear! As a regular WordPress.com forum volunteer it’s painful at times to see new users struggling with things that come so easily to even slightly more experienced users. That I believe was the reason for the creation of Learn WordPress.com and the reason I’ve decided to start giving one-on-one workshops for local WordPress.com users later this year. Stay tuned!
