WordPress 4.6 is out and I don’t care–and neither should you.

It came, it updated, I didn’t notice.┬áThat’s the way it should be.

WordPress 4.6 "Pepper" is out. That's my dog, Pepper.

Depending on your WordPress hosting company, your WordPress website might have updated automatically recently. Here’s what should have happened:

  1. WordPress updated in the background.
  2. No plugins broke.
  3. Your theme withstood the upgrade and nothing changed.
  4. You carried on with your day.
  5. You didn’t get panicked emails and calls from your millions of fans that your website is down.
  6. You noticed somewhere, maybe you got an email, that WP was updated.

Who cares what version you’re using. You just need it to work and be updated and not break things. You don’t need to worry about it because you have other things to do. You need to work on your business-not in it.

In fact, if WordPress breaks your site, you might think about other services that are so “closed loop” that things won’t break. Dare I say … SquareSpace?

When you get your oil changed in your car, do you really want to know every detail about the filter and the brand of oil? No, but you do want to know that changing your oil on a regular basis keeps your car running smoothly. In other words, if your WP isn’t updating automatically, it might be time to switch to a new host that manages WordPress for you.
