In this episode of Post Status Excerpt, Cory and David discuss some recent conversations in the WordPress community: Is the WordPress writing experience bad for “serious writers?” Does WordPress have to excel in this area, or is it fine to have third-party writing tools that feed into WordPress? Automattic acquired Day One for a reason. Tumblr might end up getting a WordPress.com writing-and-admin experience makeover.

Also don't forget: Posting content on a regular basis is a good skill to practice. Cory shares how he managed to publish a post every day in October. David points out that whether it's photography, music, or creative writing — regular publishing is important (and can be vital) to you now and in the future. For one thing, it keeps your mind limber, and by “thinking out loud,” you invite unexpected, chance encounters and collaborations with other people.
