Happy New Year everyone!

I am looking forward to 2023. This year, I’ve decided I need to re-learn WordPress. I’ve been working exclusively in Drupal for several years now. I used to have a simple WordPress blog, but I gave that up for the simplicity of publishing with 11ty. It’s time to get back into the WordPress game again. I’m a big Minecraft fan, so I think my WordPress project is going to have something to do with that.

Hi, @ap2963! Happy New Year! :tada: I commend you for taking on the goal of re-learning WordPress this year! I’m curious, what platforms/tools do you think you’ll use to re-learn WordPress development? Are you planning to take a course or? I personally like the WordPress LMS + that there’s a lot of learning resources on there (for different skill levels), which is nice! Also, do you think you’re going to restart your blog? If so, I’m sure others in our community would find it useful as well!
