Editor's Notes

  • My history with WP
  • This is where we used to be, pre-CMS
  • .com – good first playground
  • .org – the real deal
  • What do I like about WP? It’s so flexible – beginners can use it, advanced users can do really really cool stuff. Also the community, more than a decade old.
  • Responsive themes!
  • Jackson District Library, Jackson County, MI

  • Akismet
  • GA by Yoast, etc.
