  1. FYI for all my bloggers who use WordPress – I personally use & highly recommend using StudioPress to make life so much easier. It’s an add-on to WordPress that handles site security, advanced SEO, and optimized performance, basically streamlines all the back-end tech stuff so you don’t have to deal with it! More info here:
