A new year and new WordPress resolutions for 2016

This past year was quite the success for me and developing in WordPress. I got my first theme, Nuovo, into the WordPress Theme Directory. That was followed a couple of months later by Giornalismo, and Fotographia has been submitted for review. I began developing WordPress Plugins, with a total of four in the directory now (although one is a functionality plugin for Giornalismo).

Read More About plugin released this week

While waiting for Nuovo and Giornalismo to go through their respective theme reviews, I received a bit of good news this week from the plugin front.

Mere days after submitting it, the Read More About plugin was approved for the WordPress Plugin Directory, making it technically the third plugin I have in the directory, but just the second stand alone plugin (one is essentially a functionality plugin for Giornalismo).
