After quite a bit requests, please were asking where my #WordPressWednesday series went. I’ve had quite a few people pass away in my family, so I rolled back to regular posting on my site and other sites, rather than currating roundups each week. However, after getting back in the blogging groove, and after hearing from some of you all, I’ve decided to get back into the habit.
I feel currating a small roundup of what’s going in in the WordPress community, is important. It helps people connect and learn. Additionally, my roundup comes with short summaries, and not just some link or copied content from the original site.
