WordPress.com Christmas Goodies

wordpress.com hoilday desktop wallpaperThe free hosted users of wordpress.com have many free features on their blogs and the list of features is growing longer day by day. This year we have already had some Christmas goodies made available to us and I’m not referring to the return of a favorite ie. a little snow for the holidays. We now have wordpress.com holiday desktop wallpaper in seven different sizes, and more goodies are on the way.

More goodies?

A Typekit Font section has appeared under Appearance  on our dashboards.  There we see:

Typekit is the easiest way to use real fonts on your website, just enter your Typekit ID and you’ll be able to choose from hundreds of fonts some available for free, and some available for a subscription fee.

In addition look for an announcement post soon, but yes; there are expanded features (crop, rotate, flip, and resize) for image editing under development that will most assuredly be welcomed. However, due to holiday hours wordpress.com has yet to make an announcement about this feature.

Yesterday, the geotagging feature introduced just last month was also expanded to include – Email Geolocation

If you haven’t already tried our post by email feature then it makes blog publishing as simple as sending an email. Configure your blog, write an email, and we’ll do the rest. You can add photos and videos in your email and they’ll all be included, regardless of whether you send them from your home computer, your office, or a cellphone.

During the holiday season, the hours for support have been changed so do keep that in mind when filing your support tickets.

We will be closing support for one week in order to spend time with our families whilst trying not to overcook the turkey, coping with relatives, and staying sane.

Let’s all share in the spirit of peace and hope this holiday season, and carry our mutual desires for health and happiness for all, into the new year.

  1. Hi Timethief, I followed the link to free christmas headers and found a lovely Christmassy one from the “header guy” to put in my post to remind me of my christmas’s as a child in UK.
    Wishing you a very happy and peaceful Christmas,

      Your header looks lovely. I saw it when I visited your site and left behind my best wishes for you throughout the holiday season and in the new year too. :)

    • I’m betting many more wordpress users will be doing the same. I’m very interested to see try the new image editor. I wonder if it will be done before the 25th.

      • It’s already active for WP.com blogs :D. Media –> Image –> Edit Image.

        Odd location yes, wish it was in the short editor :/.

    • Hello there,
