#WordPressWednesday roundup time! If you’re needing to be up-to-date with WordPress news, but can’t read it every day because of time, no worries anymore… I’ve put together some articles for you that shouldn’t take too much of your time.
I try to pick up some of the best and most recent posts in the WordPress community every Wednesday. If you need a reminder, I actually send a weekly newsletter every Friday or Saturday, so please go to my site’s sidebar and subscribe to my weekly newsletter so you can keep on top of the WordPress news I pick up in my weekly #WordPressWednesday posts, as well as all the other great info I pack into my site. All the cool kids are, the pool is fine… yeah… you’ve heard that before… just go over to the right and subscribe. 😉
Without further interruption, here is this week’s #WordPressWednesday roundup. Just click on the link and it should open in a new window for you. This will allow you to keep this article open and quickly skim or read through. Oh, and by the way, if you like those articles, be a sweetie and share them. Our WordPress developers, designers, and bloggers all need as much love as you can give. 🙂

As you can see, I’ve gathered from a couple other places than I normally do. That just means my weekly roundup should get better or may expand to a max of 15 links. I can’t see myself spending a ton of time putting a couple dozen links into a weekly roundup and I can’t see you wanting to read them all…. unless you’re a WordPress fanatic like I am. (lol)
