The WordPress Weekend Roundup

It’s been a very full second week of January as people are definitely back in the saddle and writing and publishing great content. Businesses are attempting to hit their stride as they shake off the dust from the winter break and products are being released left and right.

Fantastic for all of us as we continue to grow our own businesses, personal, and professional lives – it’s just tough to keep up with it all! We’ve got nearly 50 resources in this one.

Hope you guys have a fantastic weekend and make sure you check out WordCamp Victoria’s Live Coverage as well!
