I went on my computer quite early on this Sunday morning — thanks kids for reminding me at 6:30 AM that there are more productive stuff to do than sleeping :P — with loads of ideas to work and code at. Suddenly, I felt like I urgently had to give Planet Planet a try, just curious to see how this stuff works (this is what powers planet.wordpress.org, for example)
About an hour later something that was not part of my plans comes out, but it's still cool. This piece of software works like a charm, requires practically no knowlegde of anything, and produces neat things like this one : another WordPress Planet
For those who don't know, planet.wordpress.org is aggregating feeds from a small team of hand picked developpers and contributors. It's cool. But the thing is, there are dozens, hundreds, of other WordPress users around the world who create things for WordPress, write plugins, suggest things, express ideas. I want to read about them too.
Basically, WordPress Planet is like the original and mother planet, except that it's not closed invite-only, it's free to join. It's less l33t. But it's more open :)
I made this aggregation planet for my personnal use, but of course feel free to use it : read it, add it to your feed reader, add it to your blogroll.
There is only one rule if you want your site to be added to the planet : have a feed that gathers posts about WordPress, and only WordPress (or any narrower topic within WordPress : plugins, themes, etc…) Nothing filed under category "Blogging Tools" or "The Blogosphere" that will also contain stuff about WordPress and other things related to blogs in general. I want to read about WordPress only :)
Ok, I lied, there is another rule to be added : you must send me a mail with your feed URL and I'll have to accept your applying. Consider applying if you have already a few on topic posts, but don't be shy, I'm very curious about everything WordPress :)
