Uniform and wordpress setup

Monday, July 11th, 2005

Following on from my earlier install of Uniform Server, I thought I’d check to see that wordpress can be installed on the server (which it can).
Extended entry has my dummies guide to installing on Uniform which is not much different to the installation at Installing WordPress official site but may help someone.

Take the MIT Weblog Survey
I took the blogging survey at MIT which took a couple of minutes to do – should be interesting to see what the results are like when they are online (and stable)

Guest blogging?

Monday, June 6th, 2005

I was reading another one of my reads this morning, 2guys2cities when I saw that the post on backup strategy was written by Mike McBride. Is that what you were *really* doing whilst you were pretending to be on holiday Mike? I’ve come across several blogs where people have had guests in to say something – normally whilst they are away on holiday or something. I wonder if there is a market for 🙂

Another geographical blog service

Thursday, May 26th, 2005

Blogdigger can show recent posts by zipcode with mine highlighted with the link. The first post is one by Mike – way to go! Mine is nowhere to be seen though (yet). It has some new feeds that I’ve not come across, including one for OCLC and also has a feature to ignore a particular blogger if you don’t want their results. Maybe I should start another category for this.. Now posted to a category called geoblogging.
Thanks to Research Buzz for the information on this one (a worthy subscribe if you are interested in the latest goings on in the search engine world (and not just google)

Google Maps for my old location with the local blogs is pretty neat. My Dublin, Ohio location has some new blogs I’ve not read but doesn’t have this blog on it – yet!

Reasons to be Comment spam 3 2 1 zero

Wednesday, January 19th, 2005

Google announced yesterday that they will not consider links in a webpage if surrounded by a nofollow tag. The upshot of this is that comments can be surrounded by the nofollow tag and google will not consider these links in pageranking. When I first read this it sounded a great solution to the commentspam problem. If everyone follows this solution, then there will be little point in doing the spam and hopefully it will stop – but therein lies the problem – everyone needs to follow it. Scoble reports that already MSN and yahoo have announced they will also use this tag. Also interesting that they’ve done this in a couple of days/hours as opposed to having to use a committee to do it.
It will be something that I’ll be looking at putting in my MT implementation soon (details from their news page on how to do this) – when I get some time!
