Doc’s WordPress News Drop is a weekly report on the most pressing WordPress news. When the news drops, I will pick it up and deliver it right to you.
Doc Pop’s News Drop
Love WordPress news, but hate reading? This is Doc Pop’s News Drop.
Are you one of those folks whose phone is constantly vibrating from nonstop Facebook and Instagram notifications? Then you’ll love WordPress.com’s newest feature. Last week WordPress.com launched instant notifications for new comments and likes, even when you aren’t using WordPress.com. You already could receive notifications via email, but if you are using Chrome or Firefox, you can get these notifications anytime. Even if you are trying to get work done. You know what, I’m going to turn this off.
This Saturday is the fourth annual WordSesh! This will be a free and live streamed 24 hour WordPress conference. Speakers include Pippin Williamson, and friend of the show, JJJ.
In fact, he stopped by to talk about it. “WordSesh is awesome! You should do it.”
To attend, all you’ll need is a computer and an okay Internet connection. I participated in a roundtable WordPress news discussion with Brad Williams and Brian Krosgard at WordSesh 2014 and it was a blast. Humblebrag.
