THE WORDPRESS NEWS CORE
FEATURING WORDPRESS COMMUNITY EXPERTS AND THE WP DAILY ARCHIVES

The WordPress Weekend Roundup

It’s been an insane week – and it’s been nothing short of a miracle. Finishing our Epic Gaming Mural, Holding our Jelly Event, organizing and finishing out WordCamp Atlanta (and the VIP after party), launching a Kickstarter Campaign, and managing all the other “normal” things in life – yikes, it’s just been insanity!

We’ve been getting a few hours of sleep each night, if we’re lucky. As you can see, Chris is trying to recover… at 8:00am in the morning.

Snore.

Snore. There’s a video of this at the very, very end of this post.

But without further ado, here you go:

1. Pressgram Kickstarter Project

Thanks in advance for your support guys – it means a lot!
