  • At work, mild headache. Weird. Going to find ibuprofen. #
  • @acomputerpro: Alexandrea should not have gone home. #
  • Does anyone else use Foxmarks to sync bookmarks in Firefox? I liked it at first, but finding it incredibly unreliable. Times out a lot. #
  • @Zaldor – Foxmarks let me keep things private, away from Google’s prying eyes, but what the heck…I already use Google for other stuff… #
  • Superhero Movie: Now this looks like good, goofy fun. http://tinyurl.com/2rbp24 #
  • Home. Sushi ordered for dinner. Been craving it for weeks. Yum. #

New Platform, Same Blog

You may notice this blog looks a little different. Yes, I changed the theme, but I also changed from Blogger over to WordPress.

I wanted to play with WordPress – which is installed on the web server that hosts my site. A lot of podcasters use it because it has plugins for podcasts and I wanted to become more knowledgeable on it. I have a lot more control over a lot of stuff with the blog, including comments. Comments are now moderated, but you don’t have to register with Blogger to comment, so it’s a bit of a tradeoff.

I was also able to add a plugin that automatically posts a digest of my Twitter updates on a daily basis. I was doing this manually for a little while, but it got really tedious. Some of my tweets are boring, but some are quick stream of consciousness things I post to get out int he open really quickly.  Now even if you don’t follow me on Twitter you can see these little blurbs.

So far, I’m really liking WordPress and what I can do with it. Now, I just have to blog a lot more often!
