Summer Christmas

By | 2018-12-14T21:01:32+00:00 December 14th, 2018|Family, Roundups|

Having a summer Christmas in New Zealand is odd. Like the whole world is turned upside-down. Which, I suppose in the Summer Hemisphere, it is.

The new Gutenberg editor is the future of WordPress. I've decided to take Gutenberg for a spin in advance of the core update. Since WordPress website design is the foundation of my business, I'm always testing the latest tools and upgrades in advance, for two reasons: a) I want to make sure it doesn't break [...]
