Well, finally. Here is the first installment of (Anti) Social Lists in 2009. I’ve meant to do one the last two weeks but I wasn’t online enough to have enough interesting links to include. This week I have information about html 5, WordPress tutorials, the WordPress 2.7 interface, PSD to HTML tutorials, freelancing, cleaning a coffeemaker and Jeff Starr’s thoughts on Twitter. I posted some of these links on Twitter, so you may have already seen them, but they are worth repeating.
Well, I am very behind as I was out of town a couple of days longer than I originally planned. I thought I would enjoy limited Internet and cell phone access but it was really hard.
I also has a very difficult trip, which I might discuss tomorrow, and it’s going to take me a bit to get back into my normal routine.
The winner of the Twitter Holiday Contest is…
Rebecca from Does This Blog Make Us Look Fat. Ironically enough, Rebecca was also the very first person to enter the contest. I will be emailing Rebecca and the other entrants later today.

It’s the holiday season and since I’m not a total grinch, I’m offering a holiday contest. One lucky person will win a free upgrade to 2.7 or a new installation if not already using WordPress, worth $50-$75.
But wait – there’s more.
Everyone else who enters the contest will also win!
How can this be? All other entrants will win $10 off an upgrade, if the upgrade is scheduled within 30 days of the closing of the contest.
WordPress 2.7 was released last night for WordPress.com users. It will be released for those of us using the self-hosted version of WordPress on December 10th.
If you are planning on upgrading when WordPress 2.7 is released, here is some information about compatibility, preparing your theme, and a list of new features.
WordPress, WordPress, WordPress. Oh, and a personality test for your blog and a SEO guide from Google.
