I’m sitting in the Detroit airport right now, on a layover. Destination: Newark, NJ. After that – NYC. I have about 30 mins before we start boarding.
Just wanted to drop in and mention that I recieved my copies of WordPress For Dummies yesterday – and it looks like BarnesandNobel.com and Amazon.com both have the book in stock now. That is different from yesterday – – as of last evening, Amazon.com was still saying that it was not in stock.
I did email Wiley (the publisher) yesterday to see if they could find out what was up with Amazon. He wrote back and said he’d call and light a fire under their butts.
Must’ve been an inferno! If anyone sees it in the stores…drop me a line and let me know. I’m interested in when it will physically hit the shelves. I’ll be in NY until Thursday – then I’m flying to Florida and will be home Sunday eve.
Will be checking email. Have a great week!

So how many times are you going to go into a B&N and just look at it sitting on the shelf? I figure if I were in your position, I’d do that daily for at least a month :d
B&N in West Long Branch (just up the road from the Monmouth Mall) claims ‘never to have heard of it’.
Borders, in Eatontown (also up the road from the Monmouth Mall) has it in stock!
That reminds me: what about getting an autographed copy??
I pre-ordered at amazon.com, they still say “shipping on Nov 12th”
Jay, i have yet to see it on the shelves anywhere. I’m in NYC at the moment and checked Borders books on Broadway and they don’t have it yet. Still looking, though – it will be cool to see it on the shelves 🙂 thanks!
Amazon is shipping today (11/7). Yay!
Charlie – Wiley doesn’t have a mechanism in place for autographed book sales. However, if you want .. I would be happy to sign your copy. Just drop me an email and we can exchange shipping info! thanks 🙂
(btw – I did get your email about the design.. i found it the other day sitting in my junk mail folder .. for some reason it got filtered. when i get home from NY.. I’ll drop you a line about it 🙂
Brian – excellent news. thanks for the update!
At 3:16:24 AM GMT-05:00, Amazon says they shipped. So I’m assuming it’s going out today…
I finally got mine. I was so happy. ;D
Hi Lisa, Joelle initially pinged me about connecting with you on this, and I’d love to review it for our site at Shaping Youth.org since many of our readers are on wordpress too! (we deal with media & marketing’s impact on kids)
I was going to shift to EE/Joelle, but just can’t as we’ve got links out the wazoo with WordPress and my local tech folks are tied into same, so she recommended I consult w/you as she rebuilds the ‘skin’ and look of the site on wordpress. Anyway, let me know which way puts the most bucks in your pocket, ordering from BN/amazon & such, or a direct link somewhere…Best, Amy
Lisa … Congratulations! I’ve been waiting for this book for months. Just thought I’d check at Borders, New York last Saturday 10/10 to see if it was in stock ahead of the release date. Sure enough it was. I bought my copy and have going through it this weekend. This will be of immense help to people completely new to the blogging platform. Well done.
Thought you might like to know that I received my copy of your book today from Amazon. I’m in the UK, so copies are getting delivered here from Amazon UK. I pre-ordered a while ago and very pleased to get my copy today.
I’ll be doing a review of the book for a podcast I co-present (info at http://www.forimediaterelease.biz). I’ll let you know when that podcast is published. Should be sometime next week.
Many congrats on the book!
Neville – That’s good news to hear Amazon.uk is shipping now!
Please do let me know when your podcast is avail. – I’ll be interested in hearing your review.
Lisa, we did the podcast review today. Posted on our show blog –
I enjoyed the book enormously. Congrats again!
Thank you so much, Neville. I enjoyed your review very much and appreciate you, and Dan, taking the time to provide such an in-depth review…it made my evening! 🙂 Cheers!
