Personal projects

When I'm not freelancing, I like to work on the following

Paulund started as a place to collect all the resources and code snippets. Collecting all these code snippets in one place meant I could easily get at them quickly in the future.

While finding more advantaged snippets quickly turned into writing tutorials about how to use this code.

Writing tutorials really helped me understand exactly how it worked and better yet it helped others learn how it worked too.

Paulund now has over 800 tutorials and code snippets and continuous to grow. I recently offered a Paulund membership which allows me to spend more time creating plugins, packages and tutorials.
