Nelson Mandela Tribute

In January 2011, Nelson Mandela became a trending topic on Twitter as false rumors of his death circulated the world.

Web Design for God’s Audience: Learning from Church Web Development

Part of my joy in being an advocate for WordPress is showcasing how WordPress is used around the world. In a fascinating discussion with Darren Hoyt, Interviews with Church Designers looks at web design and WordPress blogs from a unique perspective: Christian churches, specifically American Christian churches.

Blogs and Conspiracy Theories

Ian of Letters from Home asked me about my article series on the Blog Herald about conspiracy theories and blogs, wondering why I was doing such a series: …what’s the point of this series on conspiracy theories?

Blogging Prejudice: Aren’t We Past This Yet?

Blogger A blogged something offensive to Blogger B. Blogger B responded with “that’s not being a good Christian”. Huh?

Apologizes to all for wishing a belated birthday wish, so let’s make this a loud one. HAPPY ONE YEAR BIRTHDAY, WORDPRESS.COM! One year ago WordPress.com was released out to walk among the bloggers. Matt Mullenweg, Ryan Boren, and Donncha O’Caoimh (among many others) did what many thought couldn’t be done and wouldn’t work. They broke […]

Palestinians versus Israel – Israel versus Gaza – and the beat goes on

Having recently moved from Israel back to the United States, and considering a return soon, recent fireworks events in the area are drawing my eye. Few blogs were available writing about the subject during our five year stay in Israel during the Intifada, especially those with an “inside” perspective on either side. Now blogging is […]

Currently, my husband and I are among the millions of evacuees from Hurricane Katrina. We left Mobile, Alabama, our temporary residence, early Sunday morning and headed for Atlanta, Georgia, to wait out the storm.
