Wprecipes was created on October 5, 2008 as I place where I collect quick, clear and concise WordPress recipes.
After successfully launching my blog Cats Who Code, I received many emails from my readers who wants help with WordPress or had WordPress related questions. I don't like the principe of private replies: Sure, the reader is happy to have his/her question answered, but what about the people who haven't asked the same question yet?
As Cats Who Code is only featuring long article, I couldn't post replies there. So I decided to create a new blog to post replies to WordPress questions, and quick but very usefull recipes about my favorite blogging platform. This is how WpRecipes were born.
About the author
My name is Jean-Baptiste Jung (Pronounce: Young) and I'm a 27 years old blogger, web developer and web designer from the French-speaking part of Belgium.
I started blogging in 2006 by writing a blog in French about the Python programming language. I quickly dropped this blog and created a new one, Lyxia.org to discuss a lot of nice things about the Internet: Web development, Web design, blogging, WordPress and much more. After this successful experience, I decided to create a similar blog, but in English. This is how, in June 2008, I created Cats Who Code.
I'm also an author on several popular blogs as such as WpHacks, ProBlogDesign and Smashing Magazine where I provide various tutorials, how-tos and lists, mostly about WordPress.
I have released some WordPress themes as well, the most popular is called OpenBook and the most recent NYC Theme.
Apart from blogging, I work as a web developer in a French company and have a lovely wife and a very cute cat. (What? You didn't already noticied that I love cats a lot? )
