Post #2: Custom WordPress theme

I’ve been making WordPress theme changes since 2007, and although I’ve made “my own theme” in the past, this is the first theme I’m creating completely from scratch, without copying and pasting bits from elsewhere.

Liked and first post

I'm not going to tag them 'Day 1, day 2' etc, cause I don't know what my workload is going to be like over the next few weeks and might try to get a bit ahead.

I've 'liked' from Kai Wilson.

Day 1's post - Aggregate - would love feedback from people about if they have creative solutions for this - I'm sure the one I'm planning will *work*, I'm just not sure how to implement it yet.

With 10 extra chances for the drawing if you create a video (in addition to the blog posts) y'all would be crazy not to make one.

What will it take? 5 minutes or so even if ya start over 10 times?

Just do it!

If ya need ideas, just let me know!

#3: What is dedicated hosting?

Quote:
Dedicated hosting is a service where your website is stored on a server all by itself. It is more expensive than shared hosting, where your web host allows other companies to buy space on the same web server, but it usually means your website will run faster.
