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

The WordPress Weekend Roundup

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day which means that every married man with kids (well, not all of them…) is fretting about doing something legit tomorrow.

I’ll probably be at my local Target early tomorrow trying to find some crappy Mother’s Day card that means little more than the ridiculous $4.99 that I will pay for it.

Hm… I can do better (and so can you)! Ok, but before that, enjoy our weekly roundup.
