If you’re wondering why I’ve been posting a “Just-A-Quote” post every week for the past few weeks, here’s my explanation:
- It’s a simple way of staying connected with the WordPress community while having a busy offline life.
- I like the idea of sharing a quote once a week that helped me or meant something to me that week. And I think these quotes may help or mean something to someone else.
- And I’m hoping I can increase the reader’s awareness of the person quoted or something within the quote by providing a single link within that week’s post. For example, a simple link to Chuck Yeager‘s Wikipedia page when I quote Yeager. I’ll try to get more creative as I go on.
I hope you enjoy the quotes and maybe learn something in the process.
