RSSDoodle Buzz Marketing

Monday, January 19th, 2009

I got a ping-back about my last post, the second of its kind actually.  Looks like there’s a Wordpress plugin called RSSDoodle that allows automatic compilation and posting of posts based on a keyword search to your blog.  This is definitely a fascinating way to create awareness about your blog – essentially by auto-commenting on other people’s relevant blog posts.  The only disappointment is that the initial “wow, I’m flattered that somebody had something to say about my post” quickly disappears once you realize it was an automatic comment.  ;)

Wordpress on the iPod Touch

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

I like to lounge on the couch and play with my iPod Touch on occasion. The biggest drawbacks are of course the touch-screen based keyboard and the relatively short battery life. But I can’t help but be impressed with the variety and quantity of applications and games available for download and purchase.

I just downloaded the Wordpress app and in fact, this post is written on and posted from my iPod Touch.

While for serious work I definitely prefer my BlackBerry Bold, for chilling out and browsing a few webpages and playing some gsmes, the iPod Touch can’t be beat.

Its been a while since I did any blogging.  After my IIS-hosted ASP-based version of went down with an old server, I didn’t know if I wanted to just stop blogging or if I wanted to resurrect the blog, perhaps even import old entries.  After a while though, I decided to go ahead and install WordPress on my new web server, and here it is – hosted on WordPress 2.7, with a custom theme that you’ll be seeing me work on over the near future.  I’ve worked with WordPress quite a bit in the past, and I have to saw I’m quite fond of it.  The latest release is absolutely awesome, the developers have really implemented an impressive set of features, and the base install is especially easy to upgrade with my Fantastico DeLuxe-enabled web server. Overall I’m extremely impressed, and happy that I don’t have to be catching up with the latest and greatest by coding my own blogkit.  I’ll keep you updated.
