Blogging Challenge: Describe Sound

“Diamonds dipped in caramel.” That’s the lovely description of singer Ella Fitzgerald as described in a recent NPR’s All Things Considered program called “Vocal Impressions: Hearing Voices”. Several years ago, I had that last, long, wonderful father-and-daughter time as we went to look at colleges in the Northeast and decide which one had the most […]

The Number One Flaw in WordPress: Comments

I’m sure that your “number one flaw” or lacking feature in WordPress might be different from mine, but this is one that really bothers me. I think the solution is simple. So the question is: Why hasn’t something been done to fix this flaw? The flaw? Comments. Comments are critical to blogs. They are the […]

Microsoft Vista On Sale in January – Are You Ready and Willing?

Firefox 2 versus Internet Explorer versus WordPress

The great Firefox 2 vs. IE 7 memory test by Scobleizer is a very interesting, if not scientific, comparison between Firefox 2 and IE 7. The test compares the “memory footprint”, the amount of memory consumed between two identical setups. In Scoble’s test, Firefox wins, as it does with many of those commenting. Some interesting […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Blogging and Blogging Tips

This is a blog about blogging, as well as WordPress, and over the past year I’ve written plenty about blogging. When I began this blog, Lorelle on WordPress, was meant to be about WordPress. All about WordPress. I quickly found out that you cannot use WordPress without blogging, so the two fit together. I’ve written […]

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 […]

One Year Anniversary Review: Hurricane Katrina

Two weeks after my first post on WordPress.com, Hurricane Katrina sent us running for our lives away from the Gulf Coast of the United States. We had just come back after running from Hurricane Dennis a couple weeks before, so we had an idea of what we were up against. Having just ran, sat through, […]

One Year Anniversary Review: WordPress Plugins

I would love to be one of those sites which does nothing but review WordPress Themes and WordPress Plugins. I love them both, especially WordPress Plugins. And I’ll admit it publicly: I’m a WordPress Plugin addict! WordPress Plugins are tools, utilities, and add-ons that extend your capabilities on WordPress. They come in so many colors, […]

Blog Challenge: Personal Blogging – Tell Us a Story

Here’s another Blogging Challenge for you this week. There are all types of blogs from highly technical to wildly biased political. This week, I want to focus on the personal blog.

Yahoo News’ “Web generation preserves memories online” is a peek at the future of online memories. John Shin refuses to buy a copy of his high school yearbook. Instead, he’s turning to the Internet to preserve and share memories of his sophomore year. The 15-year-old has posted a collection of school-related photos and videos, as […]

Power Blogging: Web Browser Blogging Tips

WordPress and many other blogging tools require you to interface with your blog through your web browser, be it Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari, or whatever you are using. While I’ve used any browser I could find on any public and private computer to access my blogs, and I declare Firefox to be the […]

Ripping the Blogging Mask Off to Find a Real Person

I was reminded this morning of how blogging can change one life, change just one person, and often the person changed is the blogger, and that change can ripple out across the planet to create a change everywhere. Our favorite blogger and friend, Robert Scoble of Scobelizer, is facing one of a child’s greatest traumas: […]
