In this report: Updates from our friends at WordPress and WooCommerce plus Safe computing at home
While we are all ‘sheltered in place’, it seems like a good time to share some of the things I’ve learned during my adventures in marketing.
I’ve worked out of the Ft. Lauderdale Bureau for the past 19 years. During that time I’ve come under attack from my own ineptitude numerous times.
This led me to finally implement tools and protocols to keep my workplace safe and productive. After all, if we don’t know it’s broken, we can’t fix it.
Also included in this report, some news and updates from our partners at WordPress and WooCommerce.
Go do the right thing!
