I mentioned that last week I’d start a podcast in a separate post that was labeled #WordPressWedneday to accompany this roundup. Well, that was until I realized it was the week before the 4th of July.
It’s kind of sometimes that my family gets into. I grew up a military brat, and I kind of take the week to relax. So, I’m pushing the podcast debut to #WordPressWednesday next week. I apologize for my temporary insanity in forgetting what this week was for.
That being said, I’m not stopping the regular #WordPressWednesday roundup. Below are my picks from around the WordPress community that I hope you enjoy.
