Tidbits from Brian - Issue #1 (previously woorkup.com)

Hey everyone, it’s been a while! 👋
Just a heads up that I’ve moved (and renamed) my newsletter to Revue. Why? Because I love Twitter and the integration is awesome. Being a WordPress fanatic doesn’t mean you have to use it for everything. Always do what works for you. Simplifying my newsletter gives me more time to focus on content.

Fresh content ✍️
Living with an autoimmune disease, I’m always trying to better myself with what I call “life hacks.” One of these is my standing desk. It’s one of my secret weapons. What’s better than burning calories while you work?
Social media is growing faster than we can even keep up. And that’s not necessarily a good thing. It’s always good to keep a healthy balance. Check out how I stay sane and productive among social media distractions.
Clients and bloggers are always asking what settings I recommend using with Cloudflare. I wrote up a detailed post on every setting I use on my WordPress sites with Cloudflare. ⚡️
I use Grammarly daily. Check out this little trick I use to combine Grammarly Dark and a Chrome web app. It’s the best of both worlds, especially since they don’t have an M1 optimized app yet.

Updates
Performance
  • Salman published a great article on how to fix WooCommerce performance issues using Kinsta APM (+ real-world examples).
  • I’m all for a jQuery-free world. Check out the real performance impact of using jQuery in WordPress themes. It might shock you. ⚡️
  • There is a proposal in the works for an official performance team responsible for coordinating efforts to speed up WordPress. Yay!

Crypto (not financial advice)
Mark W. Yusko #TwoPointOneQuadrillion
The greatest wealth is created by being an early investor in #Innovation

Making that investment requires believing in something before the majority of people understand it

You will be mocked, ridiculed & criticized for your non-consensus action

It is absolutely worth it!
With the holidays coming up, make sure to take some time to mentally recharge. Don’t be afraid to enable Do Not Disturb or turn off your phone once in a while.
Until next time! 👋
