Top 100 Blogs About WordPress and Their Most Popular Posts

Wow, it has taken a while to compile this post (and I hope the headline speaks for itself). What you’ll find here is a list of the top 100 blogs about WordPress and their most popular and engaging content.

The idea is to give you a resource linking to posts that have proven to be valuable to the community.

The criteria when compiling this list were to focus on content that has gotten either the most traffic (if the WordPress blogger has shared this data), received the highest number of social media shares, or evoked the most comments.

Bonus info: Get the list of 10 tools we use when designing for WordPress that cut our work time in half (by the way, 7 of them are free). Click here.
