Ok ok ok. So much needless drama (and headline) – I’ll admit it. But I’m having a bit of fun here, so cut me some slack!

Hosted by Matt of Matt Report, I was initially invited to join in but was unable to because I had to eat dinner, which I thought was much more important at that very moment. Check it out after the jump – some great thoughts overall and I’m glad Matt was able to schedule […]

Here’s your weekly rundown of what you may have missed that wasn’t explicitly covered here on WP Daily. Let us know if we missed anything or if we need to subscribe to a particular blog and what not! I think you should at least take a look at #3, $22, #24, and #26. Those are must-reads, especially #24 on remote management.
Whether he is speaking at WordCamps all over the country, teaching classes about WordPress or writing and reviewing for Smashing Magazine, it’s clear Jake Goldman is a WordPress man through and through.
