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.
Wow, another week already. This week’s list has a number of articles written for Blog Action Day 08, Ari Herzog’s steps in moving from Blogger to WordPress, and Mark Hayward’s list of people to follow on Twitter (ok, ok I’m on his list).
A couple of weeks ago I participated in Mitch Joel’s Social Media Marketing Best Practice Meme and wrote about reflect. I thought it was time to gather all of the entries that I have found so far and share them will all of you. If I was more motivated I would work them all into an awesome essay, but I just don’t have it in me right now. Please, if you know of any that I have missed, let me know and I will add them to the list.
The articles are in no particular order other than how I located them in my online bookmarks.
One of the problems with WordPress archives listed by month in the sidebar is that the list becomes really long when you have been blogging for a long time.

I investigated a variety of solutions and Siel decided to use the Clean Archives Reloaded plugin, which creates a collapsible list or archived entries on an archive page rather than listing them in the sidebar.
Take a second to look at how the plugin works on Siel’s site and then come back and follow the installation instructions.
To install and set this plugin up on your site do the following:
I have finally updated the Green Twitter List. I am also planning on going through Twellow soon so I can add even more green users to this list. In addition I have updated the opml file for the blog feeds of the green twits.

Please post in the comments if you know of anyone who should be added to the master list.
