I actually had a #WordPressWednesday post last week, and during a server upgrade, I missed the fact that my post never published on schedule. Oh well, things happen. I’m here now. 😉
So, for anyone who is new to Blondish.net, the purpose of #WordPressWednesday is to bring a slice, the best part, of the WordPress community into a roundup article for your convenience. I definitely understand when you’re busy. I am too. So, I hope that the selection I choose, is a nice peek into what is going on with the WordPress community.
Please note that NONE of these links, even to companies that sell WordPress products and services, are affiliate links.
