Ninth Anniversary with WordPress!

I’m very proud blogging with WordPress these past 9 years. What a victory for open source computing and freedom of expression. Did you know that one out of every four Web sites in the world today runs on WordPress?

Participating in Daily Post 2011

I’m Posting every day in 2011!

I’ve decided I want to blog more. Rather than just thinking about doing it, I’m starting right now.  I will be posting on this blog once a day / once a week for all of 2011.

I know it won’t be easy, but it might be fun, inspiring, awesome and wonderful. Therefore I’m promising touse The DailyPost, and the community of other bloggers with similar goals, to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Signed,

WordPress Blogging Tools

As I increase my blogging expertise I continue to discover blogging tools of merit.

The first blogging tool I would like to share with you is Zemanta. Zemanta is an extension to Google Chrome and Firefox. When you are working inside of your WordPress account creating a blog, Zemanta activates alongside and underneath your blog post. Zemanta adds great value as it saves you opening another browser tab to find an image for your post. Zemanta provides images for you to choose from as thumbnails. It also simplifies the hyperlink option by providing a nice list of suggested hyperlinks based upon the text of your flowing blog post.

The second blogging tool that I am rejuvenated about is Windows Live Writer, which I am using to create this blog post :). Windows Live Writer is a well written blogging front end tool that interprets form and function on behalf of the blogger. As I test and utilize the newest edition of Windows Live Writer I will share back here what I have discovered.

The great news is that you can use Zemanta and Windows Live Writer together! Zemanta has a Windows Live Writer PlugIn.
