It’s spring and it is time for some spring cleaning! I lost my way a little bit with my blog, I started posting regular content (you know keeping it consistent like all the gurus advise) but it turns out, it’s hard to post regular content when you’re focusing on just one thing… WordPress.

So in an open commitment to my follower (or maybe followers) I’ve written a list of blog posts I am planning on writing over the next few weeks and months.
Ever wanted a really easy way to sort out the error styling on the popular Contact Form 7 Plugin for WordPress?
