Blog Exercises: Fall in Love with Words

There are certain clues that tell you how much a restaurant will cost. If the word “cuisine” appears in the advertising, it will be expensive.

I Love My WordPress Mug

Have you seen the new WordPress mug? For ages, while the WordPress Shop began their offerings of WordPress logo items with t-Shirts and hoodies, I kept telling the powers that be that I wanted a coffee mug. A big mug for my frequent cups of daily tea. A product that is useful and reusable, and […]

I Love Your List! I’m Going To Copy It!

I’ve seen a lot of bloggers fall in love with another blogger’s list and then reproduce most or the entire thing on their blog. STOP IT! The intention behind copying and pasting such lists on another blog is usually done out of support and caring. They want to help the original blogger spread their helpful […]

A Love Letter to WordPress Plugin Authors

I have a confession. I love WordPress Plugin authors. I worship the ground you float over. Without you, our WordPress blogs would be boring, ineffectual, and, well, just not the same. Without you, we can’t put polls and surveys on our blogs. We wouldn’t be able to feature all those funky pictures next to people’s […]

The Question: What Do You Love and Hate About a Website?

BCC News’ Newsnight is having second thoughts on their web design recently and asked a very important question: Web designers should ALWAYS remember: just because it can be done, doesn’t mean it should be done.” Stung by that challenge we’ve resolved to enter a period of rationalization. Let us know what you love and hate, […]

I Love It When You Say Nice Things About Me

I do love it when you all say nice things about me and my work on this blog or elsewhere. I love it when we all say nice things about each other, and we say them publicly as well. There isn’t enough “nice” going on in the world today, so when you can, spread some […]

Blog Exercises: I Don’t Trust That Site

I recommended an article to a student and they said they didn’t trust that site, thus shed doubt on my personal integrity. I asked why. “Because it’s on Blogspot.” Wow. I have to say that wasn’t the answer I expected. I didn’t expect someone, not web savvy in the least, would associate a blogger on […]

Blog Exercises: How to Create a Blogger Identity

A rebroadcast of “How Much Does Your Name Matter?” from Freakonomics Radio looked at the impact of a name on society, perception, prejudice, and ability to succeed. Indeed, there is some evidence that a name can influence how a child performs in school and even her career opportunities. There’s also the fact that different groups […]

Blog Exercises: Why Oh Why Ask Why?

Why? Why ask why? Because it is there. Why is probably the first question out of many children’s mouths. Why does it do that? Why do you do that? Why is it that color? Why does it make that noise? Why, oh, why, oh, why? Why say why? Because it is there. We want to […]

Blog Exercises: It Still Hurts

As my career tangled itself in WordPress, even though I was well known in other industries, I quickly became popular within the WordPress Community – and the target of meanies. Yep, as in the childhood bullies that plague us our whole lives. Without any marketing or self-promotion, this site and my articles on other sites […]
