What's The Repository all about?

The Repository is a free weekly round-up of news in the WordPress ecosystem, told via the latest headlines and tweets every Friday. We offer news from a range of media and community sources, and opinions from a diversity of voices—not just the loudest.

We sent our first issue on Friday 8 November 2019 and continue to send out a new issue each week.

Our team

The Repository is put together by the WordPress community for the WordPress community. Publisher Rae Morey has been part of the community for 10+ years and keeps on top of the latest news, supported by writer Adrianna Nine, proofreader Laura Nelson, and guest columnist Jonathan Wold.

The Repository doesn't contain affiliate links. We’re entirely funded by the sponsors you see in each issue.

Our publisher

Rae Morey is a writer, editor, and digital marketer. A while back, she was managing editor at WPMU DEV where she started The WhiP. Then she founded Words By Birds, a copy and content studio for WordPress. She's been part of the community for many years.

"My interest in the WordPress space intersects with a curiosity about business and community, a love of storytelling, and a desire to explore issues from a range of perspectives and voices. But more than anything, I'm a WordPress nerd."
