I’m not one for setting specific goals or making resolutions at the end of the year. But when I look back at this blog and how it changed over the course of 2019, it’s evident that I blogged far less than I did in previous years.
There are several factors for this, none of which are bad, just the changing nature of life, work, and all that.
But I was hard, ahem, pressed to set a goal for this blog in the next year it’d be to get back to blogging more frequently but also:
with shorter posts,
spending time some time linking out to things I’ve read that I found interesting.
So rather than wait until next year, why not start now?
On Christmas Eve of last year, I started this whole thing of sharing a list of articles that I think are must reads for anyone involved in WordPress. Ultimately, I ended up publishing the first two on US holidays.
And since today is a holiday in the US, I thought why not continue the trend?
In this post, I’ve got a small set of WordPress articles I think anyone involved in WordPress should read as well as a couple of bonus links for those who are involved in the PHP community at large.
About a week ago, I shared a round up of posts that I thought made for some good reading during the downtime the holidays inevitably bring.
I also mentioned that I have a tendency to throw things into Pocket and leave them there until I have time to read them on my own. Whenever I come across a handful of really good WordPress articles, I’ve been saving them until I have enough to share here on the site.
During the holidays, most of us slow down a bit from what we’re used to doing every day so that we can actually hang out with friends and family or so that we can catch up on something we’ve waited a long time to do.
You know, like reading or a playing a game or something like that.
One of the things that I have a habit of doing is throwing a ton of content into Pocket and then planning to read it when I actually have time.
