Like a lot of entrepreneurs, I’m constantly filled with self-doubt.

Will this experiment work? Can I make it a sustainable publication?

There aren’t that many people who _care_ about WordPress news, let alone care to contribute to it. This is a topic I unpacked in my interview with Kim Coleman on funding a WordPress news website. So many have come and gone in this space — I can see why.

I am grateful, however, when folks like Eric Karkovack step up to become contributors. I’m enjoying his series about the impact WordPress is having on freelancers:

Part 1: What does Full Site Editing mean for freelancers?

Part 2: Is WordPress pushing freelancers away? (published today)

You’ll get to hear Eric in today’s short interview. If you’re interested in becoming a contributor of content, please reach out to me.

Gutenberg Minute Transcript

My name is Birgit Pauli-Haack. Here is your Gutenberg Minute

After Full-Site Editing debuted with WordPress 5.9 the buzz centered around how to customize the experience, for instance, to restrict the color palette or disable Duotone. The latest post in the Core Editor Improvements series Curated experiences with locking APIs and theme.json offers answers.

Help us improve All Things Media by participating in the new call for testing. Responses are due by February 23, 2022. On Friday, February 18, at 11:00 AM ET / 16:00 UTC. –  Courtney Robertson with GoDaddy Pro will hold a workshop to guide participants through this “All Things Media” call for testing. This call for testing is also available in Italian and Japanese. 

The first iteration of Global Style Presets was added to the Gutenberg plugin version 12.5. The design team wants your thoughts on the best way to implement storing these variations for site users. Join the conversation on GitHub. 

The first Gutenberg Developer hours were a great success! The next session will take place February 22, 2022, at 11am Eastern / 16:00  UTC.  Register through the WordPress Social Learning group on Meetup
