I’m back in the states after an amazingly successful WordCamp Israel conference, and catching up with good friends and good food, arriving back in time for another keynote presentation in Seattle, then crashing down into sick.

WordPress Plugins for Multiple Blogger Blogs

Many blogs feature more than one blogger contributing to the blog’s content. There are WordPress Plugins that can help you control access to your WordPress blog as well as help customize the blog to accommodate multiple bloggers on one blog. As part of my almost finished month long series on WordPress Plugins, I wanted to […]

Taiwan Earthquake Disrupts Internet Access

What would you do if a major disaster took out your Internet? A 6.7 magnitude earthquake struck near Taiwan a few days ago. According to Taiwan’s Central Weather Bureau measured it at 6.7 and was followed by an aftershock registering 7.0.

WordPress.com, Please Stop Using Snap Preview

It appeared that without warning, and WordPress.com blogs have been hit with one of the new blights on the web: Snap Preview Anywhere. Planet Mike just pointed out that my blog is now littered with Snap Preview Anywhere link page previews. When you hover over any link on my site, it loads a preview of […]

Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas!

Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas! I vote for Happy Ramahanukwanzaamas to replace “Happy Holidays”. I thought this was very appropriate in the blogging world we hang out in, since it is such an anonymous and yet vastly diverse community where skin, age, height, sex, sexual preference, weight, ethnicity, race, creed, acne, beauty, culture, and nationality mean nothing. Ramahanukwanzaamas […]

Happy Birthday Blog

No, it’s not the birthday of this blog, though it could be. Every day is a birthday when there is another story idea to post and the enthusiasm keeps going. Instead I’m celebrating with my friend, Kamigoroshi’s blog, “Footsteps in the Mirror”. Mucking around the net browsing through blogs, it turns out that Sashi’s blog […]

Happy Birthday, Dear Browser

I spent a few minutes this week reflecting upon my own past year’s accomplishments as I listened to my family’s deeds for the year during a very rare family get-together. Actually, they get together all the time. My life on the road means I don’t get together with them save for once or twice a […]

Missing the wordpress.com Referers Tab?

If you have suddenly been missing the Referers tab from your Manage Panel in your WordPress.com blog, I thought I’d let you know that it has moved. The Referers panel provided some basic blog statistics on visitors, search engine links, and incoming links, as well as most popular posts. I’ll write in more detail about […]

Family Holiday Time – Would You Fix My Computer?

It never fails to happen. I show up to any family event, holidays or not, and I’m asked to take a look at the computer. A recent trip to Seattle resulted in just that kind of request from my mother. She is famous for being a clean freak, panicking at the thought of not enough […]
