About the Blog


This site is the web log of Austin Matzko. I am a web developer who works mainly with PHP and JavaScript. I spend a lot of time making plugins and themes for WordPress-powered sites.

I like to think of blogs as something like a cross between a diary, a commonplace book, and a travel journal. One of the best parts of a blog is that it allows feedback. I hope that my inchoate thoughts will be sharpened with thoughtful criticism in the comments. So please, let me know what you think, but also keep in mind that many times my ideas are not fully formed and so may not reflect my final opinion on issues. Likewise neither do any ideas expressed here represent the views of my friends, family, or past, present, or future employers.

My wife Melita, my son Samuel, my daughter Margaret, my son Benjamin, and I reside in Nashville, where I work full-time as a web developer. Since the beginning of 2008 I’ve been blogging about WordPress at Pressed Words.
