WPBeginner is a WordPress resource site which was founded by Syed Balkhi in July 2009. The main goal of this site is to provide quality tips, tricks, hacks, and other resources for the WordPress community.

At WPBeginner, Syed explains each tutorial thoroughly, so users of all levels can understand it.

Everyone loves stats so I figure I would post some stats from my blog.

If I have to attribute one main key to my blogging success it would have to be consistency. I am one of the most consistent bloggers in the world. Over the past five years, I have maintained an average of two blog posts per day and there has never been a single day where there was no new blog post. It is this level of consistency that has allowed my blog to make that income that it makes.

Seeing how well my post on How To Make Your WordPress Blog Load Faster went over, I decided that I should post a follow up. The nice thing about this follow up is that it can be applied to all blogs and not just those powered by WordPress.

For the past few days, I’ve been doing optimization on my blog to make it load faster. A faster loading blog is a better blog, both for your readers and for the search engines.

I wonder when the security update for this latest WordPress will come out? At any rate, because this is a security update, everyone who’s running WordPress for their blog should upgrade to it immediately.

This release fixes issues in the remote publishing interface, which under certain circumstances allowed Author- and Contributor-level users to improperly edit, publish, or delete posts.

For the past day or two, some readers had trouble accessing this blog. Instead of seeing the familiar blog home page, readers were greeted with a 403 forbidden warning saying they don’t have permission to access. The reason for this was I was testing out a new security plugin call AskApache Password Protect. This is an incredibly strong security plugin to protect your WordPress blog.
