WordPress in a week 49-2014

In this weekly returning item I’ll be sharing WordPress related stories I read this week and found worth sharing. This is the week 49 – 2014 edition.

Yesterday Coen published his first ever vlog. A vlog? Yes a video blog. There aren’t a lot of development focussed vlogs out there but I think there’s definitely a demand for them.

This week Google announced a new way of verifying you’re not a robot and they call it reCAPTCHA. With reCAPTCHA a significant number of your users can now attest they are human without having to solve a CAPTCHA. Proving that I’m not a robot without solving a CAPTCHA? I’m in.

I’m Not Ready

Daniel wrote a post this week about not being ready and making a comparison to someone else’s success isn’t worth it. Daniel is a great guy and I love it when people have the courage to be this honest. I’ve been writing a post similar to this post and reading this might give me the extra push to finish it.
