Interesting Sites Running Wordpress:
CIO.GOV is the home page for the US Government’s Chief Information officer, and it’s powered by Wordpress! I guess with someone smart enough to use Wordpress at the help of the USA’s information technology that at least one government worker’s salary is money well spent.

World of WordPress News and other interesting WordPress related posts:
Wordpress 3.5 “Elvin” dropped today, named after Elvin Jones a prominent Jazz drummer. The biggest improvements is in dealing with Media. You can now edit the meta data of all your images, reorder them with drag and drop capability and there are improved upload options as well. 3.5 also includes the new Twenty Twelve theme, a responsive, retina ready Wordpress theme that’s worth playing around with. New users will also find a refreshing welcome screen, showing them a few tasks to get them started using Wordpress. There are also a lot of developer enhancements and additions that have been made, so look for a flurry of really cool plugins coming your way that take advantage of all these new capabilities, and as always you’ll hear about those first on Wordpress Plugins A-Z.

Dave is not only an experienced podcast coach and instructor, but he’s also a rabid Wordpress enthusiast and advocate going back nearly seven years.

More ways to decorate your website for the holidays
While I may have covered these last year I thought it would be nice to mention them again.
Snow, balloons and more
Snowflakes (and more) falling down your blog! Inspired by the unforgettable xsnow. Since 0.8.0 images can float upwards too.
You can add a little holiday cheer with some snow, balloons and more… like falling Santas, trees or snow flakes all over. Add this great little plugin, which is also good for other festive occasions. A special treat of this plugin is you can limit it to specific pages.
