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.

Keep your portable jump starter charged up and ready to go
If you’ve been following my blogs for a while you know I frequently recommend keeping a portable jump starter (#ad) in your vehicle just in case its battery ever needs a little boost.
One of my friends and newsletter subscribers (which in my mind are one and the same) emailed me today and reminded me of the importance of always keeping your jump starter fully charged and ready for use when you need it.
Luckily, that’s very easy to do…
Simply plug your jump starter into a wall outlet every couple of months and allow the charger to top off the battery. It’s really that simple.
It won’t take long and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that a dead battery won’t leave you stranded or at the mercy of strangers.
