WordPress Security Tips: Avoid The Hackers Series (Part 1)

“Ack!! What happened to my blog??” As with everything that becomes popular, WordPress is not immune to the potential breach of security that hackers can inflict, and it certainly has not escaped the attention of hackers around the globe. There is always someone out there who wants to do more harm than good… that’s how I see hackers, anyway. As a law-abiding citizen, I really don’t understand what the whole point to breaking into people’s websites and computers is (and what kind of pleasure is apparently...

WordPress Plugins: Friends or Foes?

One of the greatest things about WordPress is the ability to add functionality to it via plugins. There are some awesome free and premium plugins out there that will enhance your WordPress blog or website, and personally, I find it difficult to keep my number of active plugins to a minimum, but there are a few reasons to not install every single plugin you find that you like! Why would you want to keep the number of plugins you use to a minimum? One of the reasons for keeping the number of plugins you use down is because, logically speaking,...

What I Observed While in Australia

This is really just a silly post, but it’s been a while since my last post, and I am alive and well – just still trying to catch up from my business trip to Australia! I did have some time to explore on my own as a “tourist”, and got some awesome photos that are posted on Facebook, and I even had the opportunity to touch two different Koalas! I have a few draft posts lined up and waiting to be completed with some useful information, but for now, here’s a “fun” post about what I observed and learned...

Auto-Tweet Your Blog Posts with Feedburner Socialize

A few months back, I wrote an post on Free Google Tools for Websites and Blogs. One of the things I recently discovered is yet another awesome Google tool: Google Feedburner’s Socialize feature. Google now has its own URL shortener, which Socialize makes use of. This also enables you can use Google Analytics to track your traffic from Twitter. I absolutely love Socialize because it automates your workflow. There are other tools as well that do the same thing, such as TwitterFeed, however, I’m a big Google fan, and I love the...

Awesome WordPress Plugin for Audio

I really disklike having any kind of Flash on websites and/or blogs that I own or design, and I know there are many designers and developers out there who agree with me. Using flash also makes SEO more challenging for websites and blogs, which is another reason to stay away from flash if you can. In addition to working by day as a Technical Trainer, working by night as a freelance web and blog designer, as well as dabbling in photography here and there on the side, I also compose my own music. I have a separate website for my music that is...

MaxBlogPress Ninja Affiliate Plugin Review

Have you ever been on someone’s site and noticed that a link was shorter and simpler than expected? Maybe an example will illustrate this better: http://www.sitename.com/xxxx Where “xxx” can be anything from twitter, facebook, maybe a product recommendation, etc. (so www.sitename.com/facebook, or www.sitename.com/twitter, or www.sitename.com/recommends/productx, etc.) I’ve had this question recently come up with a client, and I often wondered this myself until discovering just how other bloggers were achieving this....
