30 Days of WordPress Plugins
Lorelle is taking it upon herself to take on thirty plug-ins over the month of February and while I think it will be easy to find thirty great plug-ins, I commend her for doing it, as it will take a fair bit of effort to rock out thirty posts about plug-ins, especially if she sticks to even half the length of her normal writing.
I love WordPress Plugins. And I love WordPress Plugin authors even more.
Their jobs arenâ€™t easy. They pull their hair out (and turn some parts gray) building their WordPress Plugins, then are assaulted by bug reports and users begging them to fix their Plugins because â€œwe love them and we need them and canâ€™t run our blogs without themâ€, all for no money nor return on their investment. Their days are spent responding to comments about the Plugin, often to users who canâ€™t follow the most basic instructions, and chasing down reports of problems in the WordPress Support Forums.
So, Iâ€™m dedicating February to WordPress Plugins and WordPress Plugin authors. Iâ€™ll be writing 30 posts about different WordPress Plugins and the art of the WordPress Plugin.
Good luck Lorelle, and I will be watching.
