WordPress’ Jetpack Plugin and Other Tweaks

In continuing to tweak the modified 2014 layout that I posted earlier last week, I disabled a number of legacy plugins and replaced most of them with the streamlined Jetpack plugin by WordPress. Those with blogs hosted on WordPress.com should already be familiar with the Jetpack features, but those with self-hosted instances of WordPress, like me, can get the same features now, too!

You know what's even more exciting? I have two brand, spankin' new domain names. Of course, this is a-few-weeks-old news by now, as they were registered near early-April, but who is counting the days (except me)? Nobody! So, what's going on?, you may ask. I have a few ideas... The first domain, which I am not yet ready to reveal ... Read More
