20+ Blogs About WordPress Active in 2019

These are in no particular order…

1. WP Beginner

WP beginner WordPress blog

If you’ve Googled anything about WordPress, you’ve probably come across WP Beginner because it ranks near the top of many WordPress queries.

It’s been around for about 10 years and still going strong with tons of fresh content. You’ll find plenty of tutorials, list posts, and other resources.

One of my favorite parts of WP Beginner is that they have lots of more niche tutorials for smaller topics that you won’t find on other WordPress blogs.

Visit WP Beginner

2. WordPress Tavern

WP Tavern

WordPress Tavern is a more journalistic-style blog focused on WordPress news, rather than tutorials and extension roundups.

If you want to keep up to date on the latest WordPress updates or news in the WordPress business space, it’s a great place to check in once a week or so.

They also do real reporting and break stories, which is another reason WordPress Tavern has become so popular.

  • Security
  • Reviews

WPMU DEV sells a popular membership that gives access to their huge suite of plugins. They’re also the makers of the massively popular Smush image compression plugin and, as you can probably guess, they have a blog about WordPress that shares lots of great content.

One thing I like about WPMU DEV is their really long, in-depth tutorials on important WordPress topics.
