Welcome to 2016! There are three things I think you should know going into January 2016.
1. WordPress now owns 25% of the web.
What does that mean for the average person? Not a lot, but it does mean that since WordPress’s footprint has grown, so has the competition amongst WordPress agencies, designers, and developers. Don’t believe me? Do a quick search for WordPress “your city” and then do a search for .Net and Ruby. See what I mean.
