I think I'd really benefit from some kind of media service that handles the photos and videos on my WordPress site. I need a more-reliable way to upload videos that auto-converts the videos, optimizes them, serves them, organizes them, and all of that fancy stuff. WordPress works, but it's never really been a great media tool. Hmm.

I had mistakenly thought that the WordPress app was replaced by Jetpack. Turns out it wasn't. It simply split from WordPress. You no longer need Jetpack to run the WordPress app on a self hosted WordPress site.

No offense to the people who surely work hard on this plugin, but it's not for me ????.

Silly me. I've been manually typing the hashtags in these microposts. I even conceptualized this parser that automatically converts hashtags into WP tags and turns them into links.

I dropped this, and instead just automatically append all of the tags on this post as a hashtag on the site. So much easier.
