    I would like to remind everyone and explore some of the ideas that come from outside the WordPress bubble. All too often it’s easy to get entrenched in one way of thinking (the WordPress way), and while this is very necessary to understand how to work with WordPress efficiently and correctly, it often helps just as much to step outside of our comfort zone and explore how other people are handling the same problems we run into.
