The WordPress Weekend Roundup
Yet another incredibly busy week for us at WP Daily and the rest of the 8BIT team – as much as we hate to admit it, we’re still somewhat recovering from WordCamp Atlanta that finished a few weeks ago – all those calls and meetings and things that we had hoped to get done were pushed back and we’re finally knocking them out, one-by-one.
But we’ll get there. I’m sure of it.
Without further ado, here’s a look at the past week and some of the stories that we weren’t able to cover explicitly:
A few short weeks ago I introduced a new project called Pressgram, via Kickstarter and I’ve been working hard to share it with others and get the word out. It’s been an incredible experience and one that, in and of itself, has taught me a whole lot about marketing (I’m not a marketer…).
The Next Web gave us coverage this morning which was very awesome.
Oh, and if you haven’t seen the new amazing trailer that a friend helped create then you’ve missed out!
Thanks to those that have helped me personally with their tweets, status updates, and pledges. That means a big deal to me.
