Thord Daniel Hedengren is addicted to words, which led him to launch his first online newsletter in 1996. It all went downhill from there, with dozens of sites and a career as editor and freelancer in Sweden and abroad.
Going international all started with a blog post, which led to a book deal with Wiley, which in turn resulted in the Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog book and its follow-up Smashing WordPress Thems: Making WordPress Beautiful, and an even stronger voice in the WordPress community. You’re holding the second edition of critically acclaimed Smashing WordPress: Beyond the Blog in your hands right now. This is really just the beginning since that word obsession keeps Thord spewing out new stuff.
When not obsessed with words, Thord and friends are building cool websites using WordPress at his web design firm Odd Alice. He also edits magazines and writes freelance articles for both print and web publications, in both Swedish and English. You can follow everything Thord on http://tdh.me.
