Do You Get to The Point or Ramble to the Point In Your Blog?

I wish this was one of those “of course” questions, but do you edit your posts? Lately I’ve run into a rash of bloggers I know aren’t editing their work. This isn’t a matter of a minor misspelling but piss poor writing practices. I wish I could excuse it with “well, it’s a personal blog” […]

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

WordPress Widgets: The Next Generation of WordPress Plugins

In many respects I think of WordPress Widgets as the WordPress Plugins: The Next Generation.
