WordPress Weekend Projects

WordPress Weekend Projects - main header

I’ve had this idea rattling around in my brain for a while, and decided that 2018 is the year to make it happen. What’s the big idea, you ask? WordPress Weekend Projects!

The idea behind WordPress Weekend Projects is to provide a series of bite-size tips to enhance, secure, or optimize your website. I know that many website owners find it challenging to stay on top of their website to-do list, and sometimes it can feel overwhelming to look at everything that has to be done. (This is how I feel about my yardwork!) But, if the big list is approached one item at a time, it becomes a lot more manageable.

Why do I call them weekend projects? Well, really, you can do them any time you want. But I know that as entrepreneurs, we often spend most of our work-week focusing on our customers, and often our own projects get pushed aside. These tips are intended to help you get your site up to speed and working better for you taking only small pockets of time we can find in between other tasks. Each tip should take an hour or less, and can be done without interrupting your precious weekend time too much.
Below you’ll find a list of the WP Weekend Project posts. I’ll add to it as I add new posts, so you can bookmark this page and check back when you have time to see what the new projects are. Or, you can sign up to get the tips by email (you’ll get them all in order, from the beginning, once a week.)
I hope you enjoy them, and I look forward to hearing what you think.
  1. Backup your site – this actually isn’t a new post. Because I write about backing up your website a lot. It’s a small obsession of mine. So, instead of writing a new post, I’m just going to link to some previous posts that can help you out.
