WordPress Meetup in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Note: A delay in posting this was caused by a lack of electricity for over 24 hours due to storms in our new neighborhood in Western Oregon. My apologizes. If you participated in this event, please let us know how it went and how many showed up. You don’t have much time but put it […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Blog Writing

Writing up the one year anniversary review of articles I’ve written about searching and search engines, I ran across this interesting bit I wrote in “How Google Ranks Websites”: Spelling is still important. Not that Google’s patented page ranking process includes a spell checker – words that are not recognized get dumped. If misspelled keywords […]

Happy Birthday, WordPress.com

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 […]

Putting a Stop to Junk and Jokes in Your Email Inbox

Between email, forums, chats, and all the other methods of communication available today, we are inundated with words. Okay, I’m inundated. Overwhelmed. Frustrated. Over 10 years ago when just enough people were online and had email, the need to spread jokes and idiot babble via email started. Eventually, email spam got into the act. At […]

Looking for the New Article on Using WordPress.com?

A strange new bug in WordPress.com caused What Do I Do With My New WordPress.com Blog (and others) to release three days early. The date on the post was for July 29, and yet it posted without my knowledge on July 26. Unfortunately, it released in the middle of the night and I woke up […]

What Are Your Favorite Articles from Lorelle on WordPress?

I will be on the road again – actually I’m still on the road and have been constantly since March, but will be out of Internet range for most of the next week. Future posts are still not working, so while there are wonderful things you should be reading here, I don’t trust them to […]

While You Were Out…Things Happened

Since leaving my humble abode deep in Hurricane Alley Grand-freakin’ Central in March to hit the road for one of my typical “drive-three-or-four-thousand-miles-for-some-reason-that-was-important-at-the-time” trips, things have been happening. Some good, some bad, some horrid, some delightful. On the high side of things, I was designated an SOB – “Successful and Outstanding Bloggers” by Liz Strauss […]

Future Posts STILL Not Posting

Again, my apologizes. I’m still on the road, somewhere in Oregon now, living from WIFI to WIFI connection, and running into days without even a cell phone connection let alone a wireless Internet connection. And WordPress.com developers are “still working on the problem” so all the work I put into future posts keeping you informed […]

WordPress Server Crash – Well, That Was Fun

Yes, well, that was fun. NOT. If you didn’t figure it out, the WordPress.com servers took a stumble again for many hours today. The promise is that Matt and his team of developers and fixers have fixed this so it won’t happen again, but then whose counting. ;-) Thanks to everyone for protecting our precious […]

Finding Stolen Content and Copyright Infringements

I recently discussed your options and what to do if someone steals your content. Now, let’s look at how to find out if someone has stolen your content. There are various ways to find copyright infringements of your photographs and writings. Currently, there isn’t just one source, so check through these different services on a […]

WordPress.com: Trouble With Future Posts

A few days ago I reported problems I’m having with WordPress.com of future posts not releasing when they are scheduled to be released. After a few days offline traveling, I find that three days of posts did not release. Apologizes to my fans, but more importantly, if you are having problems with future posts not […]

What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Content

Having been the target of copyright thieves, and working with writers, authors, and photographers on copyright protection and laws for over 25 years, I thought I’d talk a little about what to do when someone steals your content. First, you noticed that I didn’t say “if” someone steals your content. That was on purpose. With […]

Mean Spirited Comments and Blogging

Trolls. Flamers. Meanies. Vicious. Not Nice. Unkind. Rude. Inconsiderate. Nasty. Whining. Bitching. Moaning. Bastards. Where there are humans, you will find humans who seem to have more than their share of these personality traits. Blogging is no exception. Even the most non-controversial blogs, like this one, is the target of the blogging thug, mean spirited […]

Creating a “Bad Code Day” Error Message for Your Blog

I am a fan of fun 404 Page Error pages. I also like entertaining messages for readers when blogs or websites take a “bad day off”. I’ve created such a page for my main site to put up when things go bork in the code to let people know what is happening. It also acts […]

New Comment Spammer on the Loose – Pay Attention

Comment spammers are on the loose again, coming up with more inventive ways to distract us from their spamming comments, while they think they are increasing their page rank in search engines by forcing you to link to their websites with their comment spam links. I need to make this really clear, to you and […]
