I'm learning a lot as I branch into GoLang for my work. Here are the 3 biggest lessons I've learned so far as I migrate from PHP. https://www.chriswiegman.com/2019/01/3-lessons-for-a-php-developer-working-in-golang/ #GoLang #WordPress #PHP
My thoughts on something I still hear from all-too-many people who are new to WordPress: https://www.chriswiegman.com/2019/01/wordpress-its-still-more-than-code/

occasionally, clicking through yet another half-arsed GDPR-mandated cookie management screen, i find myself thinking "the GDPR has buggered up the web"
then i catch myself.
no, it hasn't. the way companies have opted to respond to the GDPR is what's buggered up the web. they could have been nice and unobtrusive about it, but no, they decided that *every user in the EU* should suffer their protests at not being able to stow thousands of fragments of random shite on a whim all over their vict- sorry, users' computers.
My own review of 2018 while looking forward to 2019. For the most part it was a pretty good year for me. https://www.chriswiegman.com/2019/01/hello-2019-heres-to-better-habits-and-less-stress-in-the-new-year/
Spent some time updating my own site to a Genesis theme this morning. I'm not a theme Dev or a designer so it is time to leave that part to the pros so I can focus on writing and other code. I think it turned out pretty well. What do you think? https://www.chriswiegman.com
WordPress 4.9.9 and 5.0.1 are both out with security updates this morning. Time to update but be careful if you're not already on 5.0 as it's way too easy to upgrade to the newest rather than 4.9.9. https://wordpress.org/news/2018/12/wordpress-5-0-1-security-release/
Giving YouTube Music a shot over Google Play Music. Frankly, not importing my old music library will be a benefit as I just have too much crap in Play Music. Let's see if the interface is better with the new product (I actually like the play music interface but I'm willing to give the new one a shot).
Fun fact: the earliest museum curator we know about was a woman, Princess Ennigaldi of Ur, whose museum catalogued artifacts from earlier Babylonian and surrounding cultures. Her father, King Nabonidus, was the first known archaeologist.
Ennigaldi, who lived in the mid-6th century BCE, meticulously labeled each item in her museum - in three languages! - and took great care to preserve them; some of her collection dated back at least 1500 years.
