Molly was a shy, soft spoken chica with huge tits! After we found out her rolled taco had never been stuffed with the big beef, we knew we had to help her out. Her little wimpers soon turned to screams as we stuffed her tight fur taco with her first big cock!

Alexa’s car was getting new tires. We offered to help with the bill if she would help with a video. When we got her back she surprised us all by telling us to stand up and drop our pants! Let’s just say the bitch sucked and fucked her way to a new set of tires!

This is a <strong>privacy and maintenance release</strong>. We encourage you to update your sites to take advantage of the new privacy features.</p> <img src=\"https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2018/05/GDPR-Banner.png?w=632&ssl=1\" alt=\"A decorative header featuring the text \" /> <h2>Privacy</h2> <p>The European Union&#8217;s General Data Protection Regulation (<strong>GDPR</strong>) takes effect on May 25. The GDPR requires companies and site owners to be transparent about how they collect, use, and share personal data. It also gives individuals more access and choice when it comes to how their own personal data is collected, used, and shared.<br /></p> <p>It’s important to understand that while the GDPR is a European regulation, its requirements apply to all sites and online businesses that collect, store, and process personal data about EU residents no matter where the business is located.<br /></p> <p>You can learn more about the GDPR from the European Commission&#8217;s <a href=\"http://ec.europa.eu/justice/smedataprotect/index_en.htm\">Data Protection page</a>.<br /></p> <p>We&#8217;re committed to supporting site owners around the world in their work to comply with this important law. As part of that effort, we’ve added a number of new privacy features in this release.</p> <h2>Comments</h2> <img src=\"https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2018/05/comments-border.png?w=632&ssl=1\" alt=\"A screenshot of a comment form, where the new \" name=\"name\" /> <p>Logged-out commenters will be given a choice on whether their name, email address, and website are saved in a cookie on their browser.</p> <h2>Privacy Policy Page</h2> <img src=\"https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2018/05/privacy-policy-collapsed.png?w=632&ssl=1\" alt=\"A screenshot of the new Privacy Settings page.\" class=\"wp-image-5995\" /> <p>Site owners can now designate a privacy policy page. This page will be shown on your login and registration pages. You should manually add a link to your policy to every page on your website. If you have a footer menu, that’s a great place to include your privacy policy.<br /></p> <p>In addition, we’ve created a guide that includes insights from WordPress and participating plugins on how they handle personal data. These insights can be copied and pasted into your site&#8217;s privacy policy to help you get started.<br /></p> <p>If you maintain a plugin that collects data, we recommend including that information in WordPress’ privacy policy guide. <a href=\"https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/privacy/\">Learn more in our Privacy section of the Plugin Handbook</a>.</p> <h2>Data Handling</h2> <img src=\"https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2018/05/export-data.png?w=632&ssl=1\" alt=\"A screenshot of the new Export Personal Data tools page.

This is a <strong>privacy and maintenance release</strong>. We encourage you to update your sites to take advantage of the new privacy features.</p> <img src=\"https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2018/05/GDPR-Banner.png?w=632&ssl=1\" alt=\"A decorative header featuring the text \" /> <h2>Privacy</h2> <p>The European Union&#8217;s General Data Protection Regulation (<strong>GDPR</strong>) takes effect on May 25. The GDPR requires companies and site owners to be transparent about how they collect, use, and share personal data. It also gives individuals more access and choice when it comes to how their own personal data is collected, used, and shared.<br /></p> <p>It’s important to understand that while the GDPR is a European regulation, its requirements apply to all sites and online businesses that collect, store, and process personal data about EU residents no matter where the business is located.<br /></p> <p>You can learn more about the GDPR from the European Commission&#8217;s <a href=\"http://ec.europa.eu/justice/smedataprotect/index_en.htm\">Data Protection page</a>.<br /></p> <p>We&#8217;re committed to supporting site owners around the world in their work to comply with this important law. As part of that effort, we’ve added a number of new privacy features in this release.</p> <h2>Comments</h2> <img src=\"https://i0.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2018/05/comments-border.png?w=632&ssl=1\" alt=\"A screenshot of a comment form, where the new \" name=\"name\" /> <p>Logged-out commenters will be given a choice on whether their name, email address, and website are saved in a cookie on their browser.</p> <h2>Privacy Policy Page</h2> <img src=\"https://i1.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2018/05/privacy-policy-collapsed.png?w=632&ssl=1\" alt=\"A screenshot of the new Privacy Settings page.\" class=\"wp-image-5995\" /> <p>Site owners can now designate a privacy policy page. This page will be shown on your login and registration pages. You should manually add a link to your policy to every page on your website. If you have a footer menu, that’s a great place to include your privacy policy.<br /></p> <p>In addition, we’ve created a guide that includes insights from WordPress and participating plugins on how they handle personal data. These insights can be copied and pasted into your site&#8217;s privacy policy to help you get started.<br /></p> <p>If you maintain a plugin that collects data, we recommend including that information in WordPress’ privacy policy guide. <a href=\"https://developer.wordpress.org/plugins/privacy/\">Learn more in our Privacy section of the Plugin Handbook</a>.</p> <h2>Data Handling</h2> <img src=\"https://i2.wp.com/wordpress.org/news/files/2018/05/export-data.png?w=632&ssl=1\" alt=\"A screenshot of the new Export Personal Data tools page.

Shady is really the kind of person I had in mind when I started HeroPress: talented and smart, but isolated.

WordPress 4.9.6 does not give users a button to make these requests. Instead, a site&#8217;s privacy policy needs to  include information on where to send such requests.</p> <p>Once a request for a data export or removal is received, site administrators or the Data Protection Officer can browse to <strong>Tools > Export Personal Data</strong> or <strong>Tools > Remove Personal Data</strong> and send that user a verification request.</p> <img /> Export Personal Data Verification UI <img /> Data Removal Request Verification UI <p>When an admin enters a username or email address into the send request field, they&#8217;ll receive an email with a confirmation link.

If you encounter any issues, please report them on the <a href=\"https://wordpress.org/support/forum/alphabeta/\">Alpha/Beta section</a> of the support forums. </p> <p></p>\";s:7:\"content\";N;s:14:\"date_timestamp\";i:1525731532;}i:13;a:15:{s:6:\"title#\";i:1;s:5:\"title\";s:61:\"WPTavern: Jetpack 6.1, Now With Even More Privacy Information\";s:5:\"guid#\";i:1;s:4:\"guid\";s:29:\"https://wptavern.com/?p=80769\";s:5:\"link#\";i:1;s:4:\"link\";s:71:\"https://wptavern.com/jetpack-6-1-now-with-even-more-privacy-information\";s:12:\"description#\";i:1;s:11:\"description\";s:2178:\"<p>Jetpack 6.1 <a href=\"https://jetpack.com/2018/05/01/jetpack-6-1-general-maintenance/\">is available</a> and is considered a general maintenance release.

I am a follower of HeroPress and read new stories every week! A few months ago my cousin Chetan Prajapati published a WordPress story, and I was inspired by him to share my own and how it has changed my way of working.</div> <div></div> <div>I love WordPress because it had a great impact on my career. I was pursuing my Diploma in Computer Engineering. When I was in my last year of college I was working on an Industrial project and was very confused about to how to complete my project, how to choose the best framework and language so that based on my project after my college I can get a good job in my field.</div> <div></div> <div>My cousin was working on WordPress and I randomly discussed with him my last year’s project and he suggested me to use WordPress! For a demo he created an eCommerce project within 10 minutes and I was shocked. I just could not believe he created a project that fast. He said “I just installed WooCommerce and a simple theme”. From that moment on I am in love with WordPress and continuously research and gain more knowledge regarding wordpress.</div> <div></div> <div>After completing my Diploma I got a job in Ahmedabad and working as Junior WordPress Developer. Also I am attending Local Meetups and WordCamps.</div> <div></div> <div>Now I also take seminars every weekend on how to make a career in WordPress.</div> <div></div> <div> <div>It was my first time speaking in Ahmedabad WooCommerce Local Meetup in a session on how to create and setup eCommerce within 10 minutes.</div> </div> <p><strong>Speaking at the Ahmedabad WooCommerce Local Meetup</strong></p> <p><a href=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/600_458475085.jpeg\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-2527\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/600_458475085.jpeg\" alt=\"Pravin Teaching At WordCamp\" width=\"600\" height=\"450\" /></a></p> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p><strong>My First WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Udaipur 2017</strong></p> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20170128_132840/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20170128_132840-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"Pravin and a woman showing WordCamp name tags\" /></a> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20170128_131922_hdr/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20170128_131922_HDR-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"Pravin in a cutout pink tuk tuk\" /></a> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p><strong>My Second WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Mumbai 2017</strong></p> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20170325_143547_1024/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/img_20170325_143547_1024-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"Pravin by the WordCamp Mumbai tag\" /></a> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20170325_104005/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20170325_104005-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"Pravin\'s Nametag\" /></a> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p><strong>My Third WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Nagpur</strong></p> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_5327/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_5327-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"\" /></a> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_5338/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_5338-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"\" /></a> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p>After much hardwork to achieve this event, it&#8217;s WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017.</p> <p><strong>My Fourth WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017 as Volunteer</strong></p> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20171006_081917/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20171006_081917-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"\" /></a> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20171006_153955/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20171006_153955-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"\" /></a> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p><strong>My Fifth WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Mumbai 2018 ( Second time )</strong></p> <p><a href=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/img_20180318_105739.jpg\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-large wp-image-2541\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/img_20180318_105739-768x1024.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"768\" height=\"1024\" /></a></p> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p>I am a WordCamp Lover.

I am a follower of HeroPress and read new stories every week! A few months ago my cousin Chetan Prajapati published a WordPress story, and I was inspired by him to share my own and how it has changed my way of working.</div> <div></div> <div>I love WordPress because it had a great impact on my career. I was pursuing my Diploma in Computer Engineering. When I was in my last year of college I was working on an Industrial project and was very confused about to how to complete my project, how to choose the best framework and language so that based on my project after my college I can get a good job in my field.</div> <div></div> <div>My cousin was working on WordPress and I randomly discussed with him my last year’s project and he suggested me to use WordPress! For a demo he created an eCommerce project within 10 minutes and I was shocked. I just could not believe he created a project that fast. He said “I just installed WooCommerce and a simple theme”. From that moment on I am in love with WordPress and continuously research and gain more knowledge regarding wordpress.</div> <div></div> <div>After completing my Diploma I got a job in Ahmedabad and working as Junior WordPress Developer. Also I am attending Local Meetups and WordCamps.</div> <div></div> <div>Now I also take seminars every weekend on how to make a career in WordPress.</div> <div></div> <div> <div>It was my first time speaking in Ahmedabad WooCommerce Local Meetup in a session on how to create and setup eCommerce within 10 minutes.</div> </div> <p><strong>Speaking at the Ahmedabad WooCommerce Local Meetup</strong></p> <p><a href=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/600_458475085.jpeg\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-full wp-image-2527\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/600_458475085.jpeg\" alt=\"Pravin Teaching At WordCamp\" width=\"600\" height=\"450\" /></a></p> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p><strong>My First WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Udaipur 2017</strong></p> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20170128_132840/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20170128_132840-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"Pravin and a woman showing WordCamp name tags\" /></a> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20170128_131922_hdr/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20170128_131922_HDR-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"Pravin in a cutout pink tuk tuk\" /></a> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p><strong>My Second WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Mumbai 2017</strong></p> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20170325_143547_1024/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/img_20170325_143547_1024-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"Pravin by the WordCamp Mumbai tag\" /></a> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20170325_104005/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20170325_104005-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"Pravin\'s Nametag\" /></a> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p><strong>My Third WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Nagpur</strong></p> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_5327/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_5327-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"\" /></a> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_5338/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_5338-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"\" /></a> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p>After much hardwork to achieve this event, it&#8217;s WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017.</p> <p><strong>My Fourth WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Ahmedabad 2017 as Volunteer</strong></p> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20171006_081917/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20171006_081917-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"\" /></a> <a href=\"https://heropress.com/essays/childhood-to-wordpress/img_20171006_153955/\"><img width=\"150\" height=\"150\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/IMG_20171006_153955-150x150.jpg\" class=\"attachment-thumbnail size-thumbnail\" alt=\"\" /></a> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p><strong>My Fifth WordCamp &#8211; WordCamp Mumbai 2018 ( Second time )</strong></p> <p><a href=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/img_20180318_105739.jpg\"><img class=\"aligncenter size-large wp-image-2541\" src=\"https://s20094.pcdn.co/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/img_20180318_105739-768x1024.jpg\" alt=\"\" width=\"768\" height=\"1024\" /></a></p> <hr class=\"ttfmake-hr\" /> <p>I am a WordCamp Lover.

Ironically, at 43 years old I was more fit and healthy than I had ever been in my entire life. I had been running road marathons and trail ultra marathons for a few years leading up to my diagnosis. Good thing too, because surgery and treatment were obviously very tough.</p> <p>I was transitioning my design studio from analog to digital. Previously, I was working as a professional artist and illustrator creating commission portraiture and college mascot illustrations with some moderate successes. My background is in Fine Art and Design. I studied Drawing, Sculpture, &amp; Time Arts. (2D, 3D &amp; 4D &#8211; 4D can be described as: Length, width, height, and time/ motion) Naturally, as a Time Arts artist/illustrator I love the web! I love designing for the web and mobile too. Web work is immediately gratifying. I do design for both the web and print but I have always felt drawn to the web as it is more accessible, more fluid, dynamic, interconnected, animated, media rich, and well … if you are reading this then you already get the picture. <img src=\"https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/72x72/1f642.png\" alt=\"🙂\" class=\"wp-smiley\" /></p> <blockquote><p>To get through treatment it was important to me that I still work every day.</p></blockquote> <p>Some days it was just a couple hours in the afternoon but it really helped me to cope and endure unplanned surgery and many painful chemotherapy treatments. I had recently completed a couple of websites with the help of my mentor Jerry Turk. Those sites had good reach. I mean they were the kind of sites that groups of people used and managed so I got some attention for the work and word of mouth spread locally.</p> <p>It was while getting through that period of treatment and the shock of a devastating diagnosis that my digital design agency really got legs. It could not have happened at a better time. So, my studio, C&amp;D Studios &#8211; <a href=\"https://CandDStudios.com\">https://CandDStudios.com</a> continued it’s move towards being 100% digital. No more analog photography and not much more drawing at the drawing table either. Now my work was nearly 100% focused on screens and it would also begin to pay the bills. That was eight years ago. I was very fortunate to learn using reliable frameworks, themes, plug-ins, and hosts that would also stand the test of time. Thank you Genesis Framework, StudioPress and Gravity Forms to name a few…</p> <p>Fast forward to 2016 after having been cancer free all those years and cranking out a lot of agency work, I had a cancer reoccurrence. I never wanted cancer to be part of my story and I tried to deny or overcome it in all ways but it had resurfaced in October of 2016. Professionally, I was involved in collaborating on very large scale enterprise sites with teams. I was spending the year testing the waters at a new level of production. It was not good timing to require another surgery and 18 more rounds of chemotherapy. Fortunately, I found support in the community from other designers and developers whom helped me to the finish lines with 3 large projects in areas of e-commerce, college membership and enterprise site work -one with a large volume of SVG animations. After surgery, in February of 2017 I completed 18 rounds of chemotherapy treatments.</p> <blockquote><p>I have survived and am cancer free once again!</p></blockquote> <p>While going through treatment the second time I was not really focused on what good thing will I be able to grow towards professionally. Honestly, when you go through these things in life &#8211; you just spend your energy getting through as best as you can. I think it is worth noting here that while a positive attitude is great and it can improve a patient’s overall experience. Please don’t tell people they will survive cancer because of their positive attitude. Cancer is horrible, it does not discriminate and when people can’t beat a disease with their mental attitude they end up blaming themselves unnecessarily. That is not good. That is not what people intend when then try to offer support in that way but that is something I wanted to share.</p> <p>Now I have landed on the other side of treatment again and as I reflect, it’s been a really epic year! Our WordPress community has been open and supportive, welcoming me at conferences, online, and in slack groups, whether I had hair, energy, or resources &#8211; always welcoming and always encouraging.

Ironically, at 43 years old I was more fit and healthy than I had ever been in my entire life. I had been running road marathons and trail ultra marathons for a few years leading up to my diagnosis. Good thing too, because surgery and treatment were obviously very tough.</p> <p>I was transitioning my design studio from analog to digital. Previously, I was working as a professional artist and illustrator creating commission portraiture and college mascot illustrations with some moderate successes. My background is in Fine Art and Design. I studied Drawing, Sculpture, &amp; Time Arts. (2D, 3D &amp; 4D &#8211; 4D can be described as: Length, width, height, and time/ motion) Naturally, as a Time Arts artist/illustrator I love the web! I love designing for the web and mobile too. Web work is immediately gratifying. I do design for both the web and print but I have always felt drawn to the web as it is more accessible, more fluid, dynamic, interconnected, animated, media rich, and well … if you are reading this then you already get the picture. <img src=\"https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.4/72x72/1f642.png\" alt=\"🙂\" class=\"wp-smiley\" /></p> <blockquote><p>To get through treatment it was important to me that I still work every day.</p></blockquote> <p>Some days it was just a couple hours in the afternoon but it really helped me to cope and endure unplanned surgery and many painful chemotherapy treatments. I had recently completed a couple of websites with the help of my mentor Jerry Turk. Those sites had good reach. I mean they were the kind of sites that groups of people used and managed so I got some attention for the work and word of mouth spread locally.</p> <p>It was while getting through that period of treatment and the shock of a devastating diagnosis that my digital design agency really got legs. It could not have happened at a better time. So, my studio, C&amp;D Studios &#8211; <a href=\"https://CandDStudios.com\">https://CandDStudios.com</a> continued it’s move towards being 100% digital. No more analog photography and not much more drawing at the drawing table either. Now my work was nearly 100% focused on screens and it would also begin to pay the bills. That was eight years ago. I was very fortunate to learn using reliable frameworks, themes, plug-ins, and hosts that would also stand the test of time. Thank you Genesis Framework, StudioPress and Gravity Forms to name a few…</p> <p>Fast forward to 2016 after having been cancer free all those years and cranking out a lot of agency work, I had a cancer reoccurrence. I never wanted cancer to be part of my story and I tried to deny or overcome it in all ways but it had resurfaced in October of 2016. Professionally, I was involved in collaborating on very large scale enterprise sites with teams. I was spending the year testing the waters at a new level of production. It was not good timing to require another surgery and 18 more rounds of chemotherapy. Fortunately, I found support in the community from other designers and developers whom helped me to the finish lines with 3 large projects in areas of e-commerce, college membership and enterprise site work -one with a large volume of SVG animations. After surgery, in February of 2017 I completed 18 rounds of chemotherapy treatments.</p> <blockquote><p>I have survived and am cancer free once again!</p></blockquote> <p>While going through treatment the second time I was not really focused on what good thing will I be able to grow towards professionally. Honestly, when you go through these things in life &#8211; you just spend your energy getting through as best as you can. I think it is worth noting here that while a positive attitude is great and it can improve a patient’s overall experience. Please don’t tell people they will survive cancer because of their positive attitude. Cancer is horrible, it does not discriminate and when people can’t beat a disease with their mental attitude they end up blaming themselves unnecessarily. That is not good. That is not what people intend when then try to offer support in that way but that is something I wanted to share.</p> <p>Now I have landed on the other side of treatment again and as I reflect, it’s been a really epic year! Our WordPress community has been open and supportive, welcoming me at conferences, online, and in slack groups, whether I had hair, energy, or resources &#8211; always welcoming and always encouraging. Over the years I have made some wonderful friends through WordPress! Some of us have been at this for a long time and we now have many shared experiences and skills.</p> <h3>Having Survived Again I’m Launching a WordPress Product</h3> <p>Having survived again, and having been inspired at PressNomics in Tempe last spring, I’m busy launching a mobile product/service with my team Dr. Kendra Remington and Rita Best called <a href=\"https://docswithapps.com\">Docs With Apps</a>.</p> <p>I still accept some client work, and some retainer work but I’m pretty selective about the projects we work on “in house.”</p> <p>I love SVG animation work so in 2018 I’m overjoyed to be doing more contracted SVG animation work with my collaborator Jackie D’Elia.
