This to me was a very special year since I did a roadtrip with Roan, ​my son​, to Athens from the Netherlands. Three day drive back and forth. This was the first time Roan was a volunteer as he was part of the photography team. #prouddad

🚀 Performance

  • The Washington Post published a voluminous subsite full with their insights into Web Performance and SEO Best Practices and Guidelines. ​As they see it​.
  • WordPress’ Site Health feature offers great insight into, you know, health metrics of your site. For our ScanFully app that we’re building, I did some research on Twitter/X where I’d love for you to chime in as well, {{ subscriber.first_name | strip | default: “friend” }}.

💡 Interesting Finds

Based on the clicks I see reported in my ConvertKit broadcasts, it’s clear you all love a CSS trick here and there. I got two for you this week:

I love that ​Gravity Forms​ has that integration built in now, btw!

🎁 Bonus

Very niche bonus, today. Setting upload limits on WordPress Multi-site can be tricky. ​Bernard did a great write-up​ on how to tackle this beast within a beast.
