#WordPressWednesday falls on May 4th this year, so I gotta get my May the Fourth memes out of the way.
There… done (for now.)
If you’re reading a #WordPressWednesday post for the first time, it is a curated list of recent articles or noteworthy articles that I’ve come across, and think it’s a good read. I find that if you’re not learning something new as a WordPress designer or developer, as well as some users, then you get out of touch with some things you should know.
Hopefully you learn something interesting from at least one of my picks.
Ok… I lied… one more meme.
