WordPress has been working hard this year to connect blogs more socially and create more of a community among its bloggers. It kind of flew under the radar this week, but they added yet another social feature to their WordPress.com platform.
Wordpress announced on their blog today that they’ve created gaming badges for Wordpress.com bloggers. The new badges commemorate blog follow (subscriptions) and post like milestones.
Wordpress announced on (where else) their blog tonight that they have created a way for users to follow other blogs and read new posts inside a reader tool.
