This week we have sources for free images, grief counseling for bloggers, living car-free in LA, a new WordPress plugin and the types of people to unfollow on Twitter. Enjoy!
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.
I’m always looking out for new WordPress themes. I don’t want to change the theme of my site but I do like to download free ones that I like, test them in my staging area, and file them away for possible future use somewhere. Here are 5 new(ish) themes that I across recently that I liked and decided to share with you.
I’ve listed the main features, included a couple of screenshots, and linked to the demo. Let me know in the comments which one is your favorite, whether you even like them, or why you don’t like them at all. One note – I haven’t tested any of these themes yet. My opinion is based on the way that they look, not on the way that they work.
Well, by the time this is posted we should know who the next President of United States is and things can settle down a bit. Between the Phillies winning the World Series, Halloween and the election things have been way too exciting for me.
All day Tuesday I have been trying to write the post for Wednesday (today) but have been unfocused and nervous. The post I was planning was a little snarky too and that didn’t seem appropriate for the day after the election so I’m going to have to save it for another day.
I am adding a new weekly feature called ‘Stuff This in Your RSS” where I will highlight some of the most useful and fun RSS feeds in my feed reader. This will will post every Tuesday. If, for some reason, you don’t use RSS, most of the sites will have email subscriptions or you can simply bookmark the featured site and make sure to check it frequently.
Today’s feed is Giveaway of the Day. Every day Giveaway of the Day offers a free version of licensed Windows software that normally you would have to purchase. The software is hit or miss; some are really great and others not so much. But you never know what is going to be featured, so I keep this feed in my daily folder and it is one of the first RSS feeds I check every day.
