During December 2010 and January 2011, WordPress released four upgrades to the core, which is quite a lot. I’ve had issues in the past with both core and plugin upgrades, but all have eventually been rectified. Thankfully, it seems as though I’ve finally learnt my lesson(s).
WordPress introduced some majorly important updates when version 3.0 was released back in June last year. Some of the new features have really helped shake off any of the persistent rumblings about WordPress not being a true CMS.

Web designers are busy people. Running a web design agency is a busy job. You’re front and center for every aspect of your business. You need to manage your clients, your projects, your contacts and everything associated with them. When you’re first starting out it’s easy to get by by making notes here and there and just remembering the important things. But as your client list and responsibilities grow you’ll need something a little more professional to help keep you in check.
