Happy Friday everyone!
Welcome to the “weekly round-up” post from our ever-growing community of bloggers, vloggers, podcasters, and other content creators. Each and every week we hand-pick five top posts from a pool of the highest voted user-submitted/created posts in the community and include them in this weekly “listicle” blog post, along with the newsletter for all of our blog subscribers.

4. WordPress 4.8.2 Patches Eight Security Vulnerabilities
“WordPress 4.8.2 is available for download and users are encouraged to update as soon as possible. This release patches eight security vulnerabilities and has six maintenance related fixes…”
5. Done is Better Than Perfect
“There are more unfinished novels, blog posts, and job proposals on my laptop than I’d care to admit. I’m usually about 75% of the way through something before I pause, take a step back, and think: “Is this really good enough?” And the answer I give myself is almost always…”
