Abhijit Nadgouda’s ifacethoughts blog is listed by Sudhanshu Rahejta at Gyaan Sutra as one of the Top Blogs in India based on Alexa ranking. Congrats!

I Hate My Web Host

No, I’m not moving Lorelle on WordPress. In spite of the limitations, I adore blogging on my WordPress.com blog. However, for over three years I’ve been dealing with a web host from hell for several of my other blogs. It began with promises of less than 24 hours to activate my site and transfer the […]

The Blog Herald’s Matt Craven offers up The Top Ten: Irritating Blogosphere Personalities. Like my post from yesterday about the Top Ten Bloggers that I respect, here’s a list of some blogosphere personalities that irritate me… I’m quite sure this won’t make me very popular in some circles – but who cares. Ouch! He lists […]

Blog Herald Brags About Lorelle

Many long time readers here know that when it comes to the fame spotlight, I’m easily embarrassed when it touches my feet. When it smashes in my face, I’m really humbled. So it is with some trepidation, but part of my job, to let you know that my work is being bragged about on the […]

Lorelle on WordPress is in Wikipedia

I’m fairly stunned. I’m in Wikipedia. Wow! I’m listed on the Bookmarklet page of Wikipedia. Well, not me, but one of my articles: More Must Have Bookmarklets Than You Can Swing a Browser At. Lorelle offers a list of bookmarklets useful for web design and development, especially useful for bloggers. Wow! Does this mean I’m […]

Are You an Introverted Blogger?

Micah Sparacio’s “A Guide for the Introverted Blogger” on the Blog Herald is getting quite a lot of attention. As it should. Only about 25% of the population are introverts, so we’re clearly in the minority. I’m not sure how well that percentage translates into the blogosphere, but I’m sure it’s probably a bit higher […]

Playing Blog-Tag With Your Favorite Bloggers

Early in December, Jeff Pulver started a Virtual Cocktail Party Game called “Blog-Tag”. The tag game has spread. Have you participated? The Blog-Tag game is a virtual version of “It”, a children’s game where someone is “It” and has to run around trying to touch another child who then becomes “It” and continues to chase […]

Wall Street Journal Blog Bash – And Some Truths

Well, it seems that the Wall Street Journal doesn’t have the highest opinion of blogs and blogging. Okay, while it is one person’s opinion published in the Wall Street Journal, that opinion may speak for what a lot of people, and businesses, are thinking. Steve Rubel’s review of the article sums it up quite well, […]

Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas!

Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas! I vote for Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas to replace “Happy Holidays”. I thought this was very appropriate in the blogging world we hang out in, since it is such an anonymous and yet vastly diverse community where skin, age, height, sex, sexual preference, weight, ethnicity, race, creed, acne, beauty, culture, and nationality mean nothing. Ramahanukwanzaamas […]

Hotel Industry Bloggers Blogging the Hotelosphere

I love finding blogger niches and was delighted with Chrispitality’s Round-up of Hotel Industry Blogs. There is no doubt that the hotel industry is catching on to the fact that consumer-generated content is finding a voice in online media. As such more hotel brands will develop blogging strategies to touch customers on a more intimate […]
