Something I’ve just figured out on WordPress: On one of my other sites I wanted to have a category or tag that wouldn’t be shown on the list on the sidebar. (I didn’t really mind if it’s a tag or … Continue reading
Well, it sucks some of the time. Other times it’s fabulous. When it’s fab, it’s seriously fab. Totally worth it. But oh, does it sometimes suck… What brought this on, you ask. What brought this on is that I set … Continue reading
The previous one was called Hum, and the thing that bugged me about it was that instead of having a static header at the top (the bit where my blog title is shown, plus links to pages) it was on … Continue reading
Call me a stick in the mud, but I have this quaint old-fashioned idea that comments on a blog post should be relevant to the post. :) This is a blog. WordPress is not a social networking site. And even … Continue reading
So it turns out that my earlier Testing post resulted in an email going out to my subscribers, which is not all that brilliant, considering that the post was set as password-protected. Not very nice, getting an email telling you … Continue reading
Yes, I’ve changed themes again.
Do you like this one?
Seriously, I think Project 365 sounds really cool, and I love some of the creative ideas I’m seeing in this post. And I think it’s cool that WordPress offer all sorts of things to help bloggers who are stuck for ideas – there’s this, there’s “post a day“, there are ideas that come up on the screen when you’ve finished a post. I’m sure there are people who find this stuff really helpful.
But in my case, I have the opposite problem – when to find the time to write all the posts I’ve thought of writing. I keep scribbling down ideas and not getting round to it… or I start a post and leave it half-finished, in draft… I wake up with ideas, my problem is sifting them and deciding which ones to go with.
It’s not that I lack ideas, it’s more a case of 365 days in the year and 24 hours in the day not feeling like anywhere near enough…
Got totally fed up with my previous theme, needed a change. Yes, I think it was pretty – that’s exactly the problem. It was too pretty for me to cope with it long-term. Needed something cleaner. So today we say goodbye to the beautiful Dusk to Dawn theme and hello to the much cleaner, more minimalist look of Reddle.
this does mean a bit of housekeeping for me as Reddle shows the posts differently and I’m not ecstatic about that, I’m going to go backstage for a bit and see if I can get round it… I have an idea…
I just discovered that I can get viewing stats for individual posts – ok, I’m sure I could have found out sooner but I’m not one for reading tutorials :)
how? go to your list of posts and click on the Stats icon for the post in question.
I’ve always thought it was odd that I couldn’t get that info on the stats page.
I kind of fell into blogging unintentionally, without having much of a clue about what goes on in the blogosphere, and without having anything remotely resembling a plan. Asked to choose a user name, I went for Meirav, which is … Continue reading
