The second episode of Perfcast is now available for consumption. David tries out Xlite as a means of calling in and although he sounds better in terms of audio quality, there appears to have been a technical glitch which caused him to fade out every once and awhile during the show. Despite those hiccups, we had an interesting discussion about WordPress 2.7 and the following news stories.
STORIES THAT WERE DISCUSSED –
Blogging Through A Disaster – TheBlogHerald
First Look At WordPress 2.7 – WeblogToolsCollection.com
WordPress.com Hits 4 Milliong Hosted Blogs – WordPress.com

LISTENER FEEDBACK – Jacob Santos lets us know that Lloyd Budd is actually not a core developer. He does work for Automattic but does not have commit access to the code. Lloyd is still cool though! 🙂 – We love hearing what you, our audience, thinks of the show, as well as the blogging industry. If you have something to say, please contact us at (perfcast at gmail dot com)
Each week, David and I like to look at the jobs available in blogging and related industries. We cover jobs that catch our eye, and hopefully don’t pay too poorly. We will feature one of these jobs on each episode of Perfcast.
BLOGGING JOB OF THE WEEK – Green/Eco on a Budget Blogger with Simply Good Media. No word on pay rate.
