As we get closer to Black Friday, a lot more WordPress blogs and resources are dropping their Black Friday deals. I’ve had to dig a bit for this #WordPressWednesday, in order to pull those non-Black Friday posts out for viewing. It’s not that I’m against those posts, but I try to avoid it, unless someone wants to sponsor the post, just for Black Friday. Lots of good guides and tutorials in this #WordPressWednesday volume.
