This #WordPressWednesday is filled with a lot of great finds. After my post, How WordPress Has Changed My Life, somehow you all got me really fired up to blog. It was the kick in the rear that I needed after a lot of things that have been weighing on my mind.
This week we’ll cover some cool plugin roundups, some warm stories on how a plugin has helped people help the homeless or how a theme helped a customer with their business, WordCamp US announcements, and some cool tutorials and tricks.
#WordPressWednesday gathers some quality articles from all around the WordPress community, and allows you to have a peek on what’s going on. You’re busy, I’m busy… we’re all busy. Hopefully some curated content will help keep you in the loop. 🙂
As a note, please don’t forget that this roundup coincides with the #WordPressWednesday event that is held at the Facebook group called All About WordPress. Wednesday is the only day of the week that the group allows self-linking to WordPress-related articles. Other than that, the group is for all walks of WordPress users, from novice, to advance. Please make sure to join, as well as share our group with your WordPress friends. 😀
