    Wpbeginner has taught me as much in this year as I have taught myself in several years. Just by going through your articles. I added you on Youtube and I also subscribe to your newsletter. This site is a really great source of great ideas and tutorials. Many times you have helped me solve a problem that I would have probably searched the internet for a very long time before I found a quality resource. In addition, on this site I know that every article is really verified. Plus, you’re making it available to everyone for free. You are a great bunch of people and this site is really full of awesome information if you are interested in WordPress. It has personally helped me a lot with my blog.
