For those of you who can’t get enough educational links throughout the week, make sure you follow the Synthesis Twitter list here. That list and the @Copyblogger account are the main places I curate the Friday links from every week.
Before we get to the links, make sure that you are aware of the latest WordPress update.
If you do experience an issue with the upgrade, read this post that outlines two simple steps to troubleshoot problems with a WordPress update.
And now, onto this week’s links …
