    WordPress Naming – Banana-fana fo-fordPress

    Does WordPress have a naming problem? Is everything just going to be called JetPack in a few years? What about WordPress.com? Full Site Editor? Site Builder, Page Builder, Cosmic (we’re pulling for you Paul), Page Builder, GutenPage?
    We think WordPress has some naming issues we need to get addressed and the community is taking different sides to this issue. Here is ours.
    There are only two hard things in Computer Science: cache invalidation and naming things.

    What makes a good webhost in 2022

    As your friend and mine, Steve Zehngut would say, “Not all web hosts are created equal” which I think is a good thing. With them not being equal the features each have are vastly different and some of these you may need in order to host your site with them.
    We’re going to explore what you get in 2022 for a web host for your WordPress site.
