What is the news today?

By the time you have read this or listen to it, you may or may not have already caught the Post Status State of the WordPress News on Twitter spaces. Since I am writing and recording this beforehand, well, I cannot give you a synopsis of what transpired. I am hoping to do that next week.

The reason I mention this is two part regarding my Woo news.

  1. One is the fact that this isn't going to be what you have come to expect with our weekly WooBits.
  2. And it has me pondering yet again on what I deliver here on the site.

I Have Some Ideas About the News

Now you are saying, well, what's new their Bob? The fact that I changed this from "Woo News" to "Woo Bits" obviously was a subconscious move on my part. Bits of Woo. See what I mean?

When it comes to news in the WordPress space, there are dozens of sites that proclaim themselves a "news site". I am not degrading or criticizing what they do, but I will say that I can count on one hand the sites I consider even being close to a "WordPress news site". Of course my expectations may be unique, but that's a simple fact.

What Does This All Mean?

Typical of everything that I do (and have done in this space for over a decade) I am rethinking and rebuilding this part of the Do the Woo content. I thought I had found a sweet spot, bit nah, that didn't happen. In fact, that hasn't happened several times when it comes to my news. So over the next two or three Friday's, I am going to share with you my journey to the new WooBits. It might be more of a pseudo-news type of thing, but the name WooBits gives me some wiggle room.

And apologies to those who submitted their Woo news. I'll find a way to include that in next weeks update.

Tune in next week for the next in the series of What the Woo? And maybe next week I can share some of the highlights of the State of the WordPress News.

So that is the news on the news.
