  2. 2. Wordcamp Australia 2008 - Neerav Bhatt - I Donated $US5 to Matt in mid-2004 because I was impressed with WP v 1.2-mingus
  3. 3. Wordcamp Australia 2008 - Neerav Bhatt - I realised that Wordpress used on the LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) Platform <div style=&quot;display: block;&quot;> <h3><a name=&quot;popular&quot; id=&quot;popular&quot;>Most Popular Articles</a></h3> <ul> <?php query_posts('cat=17'); if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?> <li><a class=&quot;title_pop&quot; href=&quot;<?php the_permalink() ?>&quot; title=&quot;<?php the_title(); ?>&quot; rel=&quot;bookmark&quot;><b><?php the_title(); ?></b></a> &nbsp;&nbsp; <b><?php comments_number(__('(No comments)'), __('(1 comment)'), __('(% comments)')); ?></b> <br /> <? $excerpt = the_excerpt_rss(); ?> </li> <?php endwhile; else: ?> <p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p> <?php endif; ?> </ul> </div> = Reliable content publishing system allowing me to tweak the code as I wished

  9. 9. Wordcamp Australia 2008 - Neerav Bhatt - Advertising revenue from my blogs + spin-off income from consulting gigs + other work gained from my reputation as a blogger has meant I can earn a great living while helping people solve their information needs
