Bridget Willard recently launched a plugin to help business owners blog regularly.

WordPress professional, author, and teacher Bridget Willard recently released a new plugin that will help small business owners launch their website with blogging prompts.

According to the plugin page on WordPress Repository,

Launch With Words is a product that combines the experience of a small business copywriter with blogging prompts. This helps you publish a blog post once a month. No need for boring placeholder text or lorem ipsum in your blog. Simply follow the prompts and publish. Now you are a copywriter! Because blogging shouldn’t be hard.

The plugin and the Content Start Pack comes with prompts to encourage blogging every month.

Need something like this as a value add for your ongoing clients? Willard has Premium Content Packs that work with the plugin.

WP Lookout monitors your themes and plugins for changes.

You likely monitor several websites and thereby many plugins and themes. Well, using something like WP Lookout may help you manage your monitoring of themes and plugins.

The new plugin will help you keep tabs on issues and news relating to each.

To get started, you register for an account at the WP Lookout site. Next, you add their plugin to your website via the WordPress Repository.

After you create an API Key for your website, you add the API to your website’s plugin settings.

Once you have done this, you will find the information in your WP Lookout dashboard. Your account will also email you notifications, and you have an RSS feed you can import to view.

I think this has some real possibilities, but I am unsure how you would use it with managing many websites. I would like to see this added to the MainWP stack someday.

TasteWP helps to spin up WordPress instances.

I have almost always kept a Demo site to use as a sandbox for testing plugins and themes, etc. Currently, I am without one, but a new service is available that will allow you to test without using your own server space.

TasteWP does that. It allows you to set up a WordPress instance to test different plugins and such. This is ideal, especially if it doesn’t have to mirror a certain environment.

Users can spin up the instance for free and without login or use a login to keep the WordPress instance live longer.

Your site will be deleted after 48 hours if you aren’t logged in or 7 days if you are. This is a temporary instance but comes with a cloning plugin to quickly move the site.
