I can’t say I’m one of the people who regularly visits WordPress.org – who actually does? (unless you’re about to download the latest version for a new project) However I was digging through the forums recently and discovered they now have a Showcase of WordPress websites there. Seeing as its relatively new, I figure they haven’t been berated with 1000’s of submissions a day like any good CSS gallery usually probably is.

So I decided to send in my personal windsurfing website I designed: www.seanobrien.com.au. Low and behold, I had an incredible spike in traffic on the first day it popped up, peaking at around 6,000 unique hits in the first 24 hour period. Considering my website is targetted mainly towards the windsurfing world and for my sponsors within the windsurfing world (a very niche group) – this was great publicity and I’d recommend to anyone to submit their new website to the Showcase. Albeit the site needs to be pretty nice to get selected …

Checkout seanobrien.com.au on the WordPress Showcase.

The WordPress Showcase is a really great resource for finding out who is using WordPress, what they’ve done with their site and of course to get some inspiration on your next design. WordPress is starting to become a major player in the CMS scene and more and more big brands, celebrities and people are starting to use the platform over Joomla or Ghost or other blogging platforms.
