The weeks really fly away but we have a new roundup with lots of WordPress goodies for you guys! As I mentioned earlier on several occasions. It’s really a privilege to be part of the worldwide WordPress community with all these awesome people, making the world of the wide web a better and more exciting place. Therefore, I lift my hat for all the friends I met over the years with one common thing, a great interest and big heart for WordPress. Thanks, guys!
Before we proceed with our weekly WordPress recap we must initiate that is Friday again! A new awesome weekend is in front of us. Sounds great, right? Since we’re talking about Friday. Do you remember the song Friday on My Mind? “Friday on My Mind” is a 1966 song by Australian rock group the Easybeats. But other versions of the song have been made by artists such as David Bowie and Bruce Springsteen, but my favorite version is by Gary Moore. A Northern Irish musician, most widely recognized as a singer, songwriter, and virtuoso rock and blues guitarist.
So why not warm up the Friday with a rocking version of Friday on My Mind?
Let our weekly WordPress recap kick in full swing and see what happened during the week. As I mentioned earlier, the roundup is packed with awesome articles, tips and tricks, tutorials, podcasts, interviews, themes and plugins and much more. So I hope you can take advantage of all the versatile tips from all the brilliant WordPress people out there.
