Just 5 links this week but they are all quality ones. I collected more during the week but then pulled some of them. A commenter noticed that I was being especially negative lately and I decided to remove some of the snark. This week I’ve got Gimp tutorials, information about WordPress 2.7, using the WordPress visual text editor, free eBooks, and an article about blogging from Copyblogger.
Earlier this week The Blog Herald published an article about strange blogging habits. The article discusses writing out html rather than using the visual text editor, typing out full url’s rather than using shortcuts, and writing posts in a text editor rather than in the WordPress Write Post area. There is also a lengthy intro about a journalist who continued to use a typewriter even after the advent of word processing and laptops and had someone in his office transcribe his work.
Usually I attempt to share useful WordPress information but today, I thought we could have some fun with 5 of the most annoying WordPress plugins. Seriously, what were they thinking? Do we really need any of these? Please note, I have not tested any of these. I am basing their annoyance level completely on the demo or description of it’s purpose.
As always, please let me know about other annoying WordPress plugins. Or, even if they aren’t annoying, ones that make you ask, “What were they thinking?”
I have quite a few links for you today. I’m not sure why I have more than usual – perhaps I’ve been spending too much time surfing. Topics include; life balance, why you shouldn’t clean, how to get more blog comments, and interview with Mark Hayward, listening to music while working, and photos of election day. Enjoy!
Last week I asked you about your least favorite part of blogging. Today I want to ask about where you do your blogging.
I do most of my work at my home computer, which is pictured above and below. I have a desk that is much too small so I can’t pile too much on it. Maybe that is a good thing. I didn’t clean it up for the photo but there is often much more stacked on the side of the monitor. There are shelves to the side so a lot of stuff gets put there. Although most of the things on the shelves are games and dvds that have nothing to do with blogging. But seriously, I was hoping to get one from the standing desk list with more surface area so my two monitors could fit snugly for easy operation.
