What Theme Is That WordPress Running?

Okay, so this may not matter to a lot of my readers who aren’t designers, programmers or WordPress enthusiasts. But, it does matter to me. I cannot tell you how many times I have seen a site and wanted to know what they were running.  Most of the time, I just go over to Netcraft […]

Security In A Box

First of all, you should know I’m talking about computer security, not home security. Secondly, know that “in a box” really means something more like “all in one place”. I’m suggesting this site this week because security is on my mind.  Not only in a corporate sense, but in a personal sense.  In a professional […]

WordPress Training

Free training, of course, for my favorite content management system; WordPress. Not familiar with WordPress?  Well, you should be since it runs or manages a significant percentage of the web.  As of this writing, “significant” means about 25% of all websites.  Yeah.  That’s a lot.  And, there are a lot of reasons for that.  For […]

Roll Your Own

Three words that strike fear into the heart of many a wise system administrator. And not a few other sorts of smart people, too! In this case, though, I’m talking about rolling your own WordPress theme.  This is one of those many, many projects that I’ve wanted to get to on that ever-elusive “one day” […]

Things To Read

I’m a little suspicious of lists put out by booksellers of books I ought to read. I’m especially suspicious when it’s a list of 100 “books to read in a lifetime” being suggested by Amazon.  But, when Matt Mullenweg, founder of Automattic and one of two founding developers of WordPress, I have to admit, I […]

Download The Latest Themes From Automattic

It’s a great time to be a blogger. No, seriously!  For one thing, if you’re an old guy like me, who’s been blogging for ten or fifteen years, the golden time we all knew was coming has arrived; according to The Atlantic, Millennials are finally craving long-form reads. So, you can finally setup that blog […]

Style Maker

Hopefully, you all won’t be too disappointed to not see links to a bunch of other blogs today. I hate to admit it, but I wrote this at the last minute because I’ve been so busy.  So, if you all think this is lame today, well, I don’t blame you.  I’ll try to do better […]

Against Digital Sharecropping

I like being free and independent. I like the idea behind Instagram, but not the proprietary nature of it. I don’t like giving up my rights to work I create.   Even when it’s just a little photo of a little moment captured with my iPhone.  I dislike, as Nicholas Carr called it on his blog, […]

Two Random Blog Design Tools

Are there really any websites that aren’t essentially blogs? Okay, I know there are, but, considering that some people estimate about 1 out of every 5 sites runs WordPress, it amounts to the same thing. In any case, these two tools I’m about to share can actually be useful to any website design. First, there’s […]
