We initiated the weekly roundup of WordPress articles. Last Wednesday, we published the Weekly Roundup #1 for our readers.

We have shared several resources and the response was massive. We are grateful to our readers for sharing it all over the internet. With your generous support, we are able to write the roundup again for this week.
