Guess ya know what I’ll be playing around with this evening 😆. One 5-⭐️ rating thus far, so worth a shot, eh?! Reallllly wanna check out the “blog post ideas — drafts — no typing” deal!! This skill allows you to check your WordPress.com notifications, moderate pending comments, and save blog post ideas as drafts — no typing required.
