It’s May – yay, April is over. I’m officially working for myself as a freelance WordPress consultant. I was so busy this week that I actually fell for a facebook phishing scam but somehow managed to find some great links (I also seem to know a lot of awesome people who post great stuff). This week is all over the place and there is hardly anything about WordPress.
- The Force is Strong With This One – A collection of flickr photos of animals and Star Wars. Fun and silly.
- Create Your Own Zombie – Over at PopCap games you can create your own zombie as part of the Plants vs. Zombies promo.
Twanalyst – Input your Twitter username and have your twitter personality analyzed. Mine says:
Personality: renowned spamming cautious
Style: garrulous coherent
Awesome – I’ve always wanted to be a coherant spamming celebrity. Maybe Twanlyst knows about the Facebook fiasco.
- The Vintage Web– Want some web design inspiration? Then don’t look here. Instead, say hello to 1998 and geocities.
- How To Use the WordPress Image Uploader to Create Thumbnails – This article discusses using thumbnails with your WordPress theme. I was intrigued by this because I recently wrote about using the Thumbnails for Excerpts plugin in a sidebar block. This also shows how little I pay attention sometimes because I didn’t know that the sizes of the uploaded images could be changed to whatever you wanted. Very useful.
- How to Eat Sustainably on a Food Stamp Budget Siel discusses how one couple made sustainable and organic meals for a month on a food stamp budget. I didn’t think it was possible to do buying organic food but with some planning and cooking it can be done.
- Swine Flu Should Be The Least of Our Concerns – Considering that 36,000 people die from the “regular” flu annually and 1300 people die daily (worldwide) from Malaria it would seem that the media is creating unnecessary fear and panic.
- Oh God – It’s a Whole Chicken in a Can – The original “gross lady”, Tracy O’Connor had her site linked to by this Gizmodo article. So much traffic hit her site that it came crashing down. Lots of traffic is awesome. Last minute install of WP Super Cache not so much. Still … this is SO awesome.
I love Maru – he has so much fun with the big giant box.
