Finally getting my own images on here

Posted by & filed under Site Documents.

It’s about time to replace the default path image for the TwentyTen theme I’m using. So I went and added 3 panoramic images I’ve taken over the years. They should randomly rotate, and ideally I’ll add more as I get a chance – either my stuff or images that I find that would look good.

Oops, spamming my own blog

I really like the idea of having tweets cross posted here, but after turning on Twitter Tools it looks like I’m spamming my own blog. So we’re going to try turning off the auto cross posting and switch to weekly digests instead.

Going to try cross posting with Twitter

Posted by & filed under Site Documents.

Came across a WordPress plugin called Twitter Tools today. Like most of the 10,000 other Twitter plugins it lets me tweet for each of my blog posts. But this one also promises to go the other way creating a blog post for each tweet. Maybe a touch of overkill cross posting between the two, but… Read more »

’bout time for a new theme

Contact Form

I’m going to try this out for a little while. I downloaded a plugin called WP-ContactForm that’ll allow y’all to contact me if you want. Compliments, complains, link exchanges, whatever.

SimpleTags plugin for WordPress

Posted by & filed under Blogging, Site Documents.

I’ve started using a plugin for WordPress called SimpleTags to handle tagging for Technorati. It’s pretty slick. For inline tags throw a <tag> around the word and it becomes a tag on publishing.
