Why Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is Still Important

By John Pozadzides There is a war of words being waged around the concept of Search Engine Optimization with one side claiming that SEO is dead, and the other claiming SEO is everything. The reality lies somewhere between these two extremes (as reality often does) so it’s important to understand both the history and the […]

Should You Design Your Own Blog?

A while ago, a popular blogger, asked me to review his blog design for improvements.

The Art of a Good Site Map

I’m a fanatic about a good site map, even though the one on this blog is manually created, a serious pain in the…everything… and way past due updating because it is manually created. I was thrilled with the article by Jim Westergren, “Tutorial on Automatic Site Maps in WordPress”, highlighting several different methods and WordPress […]

WordPress Pages: Exploring the Pseudo-Static Pages of WordPress

I fought long and hard to change the name “Pages” in WordPress jargon. After failing miserably, we’re now almost two years into spreading the word that the pseudo-static web pages on WordPress are called “Pages” and all other pages generated by WordPress are called “web pages” or “post views”. While most of the confusion seems […]

Truths and Consequences of Blogs That Stand Out

I wrote recently asking you all about what makes a blog stand out from the crowd, and some interesting comments came up. I think that some of these are worth discussing.

Let us know what you love and hate, […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Web Development

Over the past year, I’ve written a lot about web development, also known as website development and blog development. Web Development is the name for the techniques involved in developing your website or blog. What it really is, well, that’s a lot more confusing. People make a lot of assumptions, so let’s look at what […]

Many people use their blogs like encyclopedias, wikis, or great repositories of information. Or for handling collections of information such as quotes, poetry, recipes, code, research, or facts.

Translate WordPress: WordPress.com Home Pages in Hebrew, Farsi, Bulgarian, and More

One thing I am very passionate about is breaking communication and language barriers. So I was thrilled to see this morning’s announcement that WordPress.com is starting to release language specific “home pages”.
