We love giveaways and the bigger the better, of course! WPBeginner‘s got probably one of the biggest giveaways in WP-land that I’ve seen in a while and the combined net-value is estimated to be close to $25,000! Yikes!
I hope you are having a very chill and relaxed weekend as we walk into the 4th of July week! Many of you are probably traveling this week and I hope you travel well and safely.

Syed Balkhi is one guy that seems to have an unlimited amount of energy. If you follow this guy on Twitter or around the interwebs it appears that he’s in multiple places at the exact same time. I’m not sure if he has a stand-in that’s traveling for him or if he’s somehow managed to clone himself in some futuristic fashion – but whatever it is, it’s working. As we’ve done before in our interview segments, we want to showcase and get a little more information from these successful WordPress-centric personalities and glean a bit if we can. Today we’re […]
Wow. Has this week been an interesting week or what? With people swirling around the GPL debate yet again there hasn’t been much else that people have been talking about – in fact, it’s generally been a fairly quiet week.

Enjoy your weekend folks!
