Hey, WordPress friends. We hope you got your fill of WordPress Black Friday deals last week. There are still a few deals straggling on, but most of them are over by now.
Other than those deals, it’s been a fairly quiet week. There’s been some talk of returning to in-person WordPress events in limited locations and, as usual, we have lots of tutorials and resources for you.
