Feeling a little Clint Eastwood-ish this morning. Not Harry Callahan-ish, but man-with-no-name-ish, as in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Not good/bad/ugly about me, personally, you understand but about what’s out there on the blogosphere today. Let’s start with the good:
- Two very helpful posts for anyone who uses WordPress as their software backbone for their blog (from WordPress.org, not .com):
- Caimin Jones tells How to Back Up and Move a WordPress Blog on @ProBlogger. The focus here is on moving the blog, rather than backing it up. However, if you’re more interested in backing up (and I can tell you from painful experience with another web site, you should be) then you’ll want to follow the link in Caimin’s post over to…
- Jason Tarasi’s How To Backup Your WordPress Blog In Three Easy Steps, also on @ProBlogger.
- And now the bad, as in bad (poor, excessive, hyped, cliched) use of language. Porter Anderson (@Porter_Anderson) waxes lengthy on Writer Unboxed about ‘Social’: Over the Top language on Twitter, Facebook, etc. The. Best. Ever. (Not!) 🙂 (His assessment, not mine about his.)
- And the really ugly: Victoria Strauss (@VictoriaStrauss) warns about yet More Money-Wasting “Opportunities” for Writers on Writer Beware (R) Blogs! It’s depressing how many companies there are out there whose business model is simply preying on the gullible, the greedy, and the desperate-for-success.
That’s all for today. Have a great, fab, best-ever 🙂 weekend.
