Introducing Mrs. WordPress

Posted By Darren Rowse 18th of February 2007 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

Time for a little weekend diversion….

Anyone who has started a WordPress blog will probably be familiar with Mr WordPress. He’s the guy who makes your first comment by default so that you know what a comment is.

Very considerate of him really.

His comment looks like this:


Today I discovered Mr WordPress has a secret….

He has a wife – Mrs. WordPress – and she’s started a blog. Not only that, but he has a child -Junior WordPress (pictured below the fold).

Her blog is an attempt to find Mr WordPress who walked out on them. Someone has too much time on their hands – and a great sense of humor.

  2. LOl yeah i saw it through the dashboard.It was funny .If You have noticed, she got a link on sidebar to mr wordpress which says “That bastard” when you hove your mouse over it.

    Its fun

  3. Yeah!

    Damn funny! Perfect for a sunday afternoon read.


  4. Yup… finally. I was curious of the person behind the first comment that we get whenever new installation of wordpress blog is done. Thank for the head up Problogger.

  5. Someone should do something about the ‘Hello Dolly’ plugin too .. always felt it was like a Ghost in the Machine .. kinda creepy.

  6. I have a different problem!
    Someone made a fake blog using a perfect copy of my profile, including photo, and use it to leave dirty msgs in my friends blogs.
    I have no idea why they are doing it and Blogger didn’t do anything to delete this fake blog!

  7. “Someone has too much time on their hands” – nicely said. In my opinion it’s far away from being fun.

  8. hahhahahah, ur niche is really funny Darren. Well i think i will have look at what Mrs. WordPress has to give to us. :)

    I wonder when she’ll add AdSense to fund the search for Mr. WordPress ;)

  14. Her husband really gets around.

  15. Good Read for ‘Munday’!


  16. I guess I’m officially a blogging nerd. Not only do I get this, I find it funny. Good thing I bagged my wife before she found out how much of a dork I am. Good pull!


  17. Mr WordPress is David Cavanagh according to http://mrwordpress.com/
