Hey, WordPress friends.
This week, WordPress hit a big usage milestone – it now officially powers more than 40% of the websites in Alexa’s top 10 million. So there you go – WordPress isn’t just for small publishers, it works great for big-name websites, too.
Beyond that, Elementor announced changes to the pricing for the premium version set to go into effect on March 9th, 2021. We also have lots of other articles, tutorials, and reviews for you.
