The open source PHP/MySQL WordPress platform is one of the most stable scripts for any webmaster. With the advent of Custom Post Types it is now possible to turn any WordPress website in a full-blown gallery of social network. I have been so impressed with recent advancements that I feel it’s worth cataloging some of the best resources for WP developers.
In this gallery I have put together 25 must-know WordPress blogs and online resources. From helpful code snippets to finding new plugins, there are always plenty of resources out there for WordPress lovers. Even premium themes and inspiration galleries can help when you sit down to code your own WordPress theme. I do hope these resources prove beneficial to webmasters all around the world. And if I have left out any great tools, feel free to share with us in the discussion area below.

Setting up a blog and writing content is easy. It is how you get more traffic to visit your blog that is hard. It takes patience and a lot of determination to get a high rank for your website.

Same applies to blogs. You can’t expect it to give you results straight away and you need to be patient to feed it with what it needs in order for it to enjoy having more traffic.
