Sparklette has been featured in the official WordPress Showcase
As you may know, Sparklette is one of my personal projects where I review restaurants and blog travel stories. Since the website was started in 2003, it has won a number of awards, including 3 for its design and layout. The distinguished Smashing Magazine also featured Sparklette for its “fresh, clean and impressive design”.
The Content Management System (CMS) used on Sparklette is WordPress. I gave the design an overhaul, building it from scratch. And now, WordPress has selected it to be featured in their official showcase.
Here are WordPress’ criteria for selecting websites:
Blogs and web sites powered by WordPress that make it into the Showcase are typically doing one or more of the following:
- Using WordPress in a unique or innovative way.
- Attracting tens of thousands of regular readers.
- Being written by someone famous or especially notable in his or her particular field.
- Representing a notable organization, government entity, or corporation as an official blog or web site.
