I’ve decided to move the Webdev category content over to the WordPress Reader issues on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Any traffic-building content I think I’ll start integrated with the Marketing category right here.
Speaking of which, even if you aren’t a WordPress user, you may want to take a periodic casual glance through. There’s stuff in there that can be wordpreneur-beneficial in general.
The latest issue, for example, has links to the following not-necessarily-WordPress-specific stuff:

- 25 bug tracking tools for websites
- How to Get and Install an SSL Certificate for HTTPS ASAP
- Web Design Best Practices for Reviving a Stagnate Website
