Having trouble speeding up your blog and getting it to pass Google’s Core Web Vitals standards?
If so, you need to ditch your blog’s current WordPress caching plugin and replace it with WP Rocket.
WP Rocket goes far beyond simple page caching. It also makes a plethora of other tweaks and enhancements to your WordPress blog that makes its pages load faster and improves other areas that affect your blog’s Core Web Vitals score in a big way.
If you’ve been struggling to get your blog “up to speed” you really owe it to yourself to give WP Rocket a try. You won’t be disappointed.

Today’s Quick Tip….
How to make sure you can’t accidentally close a browser tab
Do you have a certain web page that you want to always have open in your browser? In other words, a tab that you’ll never want to close?
Or perhaps you need to do something really important on a web page (like fill out an application, for example) and you want to be absolutely sure that you don’t accidentally close the tab before you complete that important task?
Well, in either case the solution is simple…
Just “pin” that tab to the Tab Bar. Here’s how:
1 – Right-click on the tab you want to pin to the Tab Bar.
2 – Click either Pin tab or Pin (depending on which text your browser uses).
That’s all there is to it. Once a tab bas been pinned to the Tab Bar you won’t be able to close it even if you try.
If you change your mind later and decide to “unpin” the tab just follow the steps above once again and click Unpin tab in step 2.
