It’s been a few weeks since the last #WordPressWednesday, but I’ve been dealing with WordCamps, being out of state, and lots of meetings that have kept me from what I love doing… blogging. However, I’m back, and while this week won’t have a podcast post in addition to this roundup, next week’s will.
This week’s #WordPressWednesday roundup contains some plugin lists, some tutorials, and a few nice discussions. I’ve also added the sub-section “WordPress Development” because I’d like to keep specific material separate. If something is more developer related, and beyond the beginner/ intermediate user level, then it will go in that section.
As usual, I always like to welcome new readers, and let you know that the #WordPressWednesday series is a roundup of some of the most interesting recent posts in the WordPress community. Hopefully this series gives you a quick insight on what’s going on, as I know you may be too busy to want to seek out good news. While I do have some regular sites that I pick from, I do showcase new people, and welcome new resource suggestions.
