New Year Motivation from Facebook Embeds

New Year Motivation and Facebook Embeds

Facebook can be a great motivational tool, if we take time to read the positive and take it to heart. You can also use Facebook embeds to include Facebook posts, images and videos in websites and blogs. This is the time of year for reflecting on the past year and looking ahead to the future. I had plans to create some motivational messages until I read those posted on Facebook today. Instead I’m embedding some that inspired me the most. After that I’ll explain ways you too can bring Facebook posts into a blog post using the Facebook embeds feature. […] Continue Reading…

Pulse Hover WordPress Plugin

Facebook Popularity of Post Types

In my last post I mentioned that I would tell you more about the Pulse Hover WordPress Plugin. Since then I got busy creating a couple of new sites and doing some SEO and promotion for them and I apologize that this post is overdue. Pulse Hover, which adds a variety of hover features to images, is a plugin I will use on all of my sites now. Popups are intrusive and, although they can be effective, they turn some visitors off. Pulse Hover gets around this  “in your face” effect by only appearing when an image is hovered over. […] Continue Reading…

Bling Your Blog

Font Awesome examples in color

I am not averse to a little bit of bling as long as it is not ostentatious. A touch of sparkle or embellishment here and there can brighten the day. The same can apply to your blog, to make it stand out from the crowd. This blog design is a case in point with its custom header, shadow images under the posts on the home page, and feature boxes in posts. I enjoy tweaking the theme; a child theme I created from the Thematic framework. My latest addition is using a Google font for comment authors. Although my html and […] Continue Reading…

Get More Comments with KeywordLuv

A new WordPress plugin has to be unique and useful for me to write about it. The KeywordLuv plugin by Stephen Cronin of More than Scratch the Surface is just that. It is one of those “I know I have too many plugins, but I must have this one” plugin. What KeywordLuv does is allow for the inclusion of a name and keywords in the title field in the comments form. I see this as being useful to include your blog title alongside your name. Those who are familiar with your blog title but not your nickname can associate the […] Continue Reading…

Yahoo Shortcuts plugin for WordPress

I have been trialling the WordPress ‘Yahoo Shortcuts‘ plugin for a week or so now. As I found it a little tricky to come to grips with, I thought I would give you a bit of a run down on how to use it and a review based on my experiences. The images and popup links in this post have mostly been embedded using the plugin. This plugin uses Yahoo Shortcuts to add Yahoo search popups and Creative Commons-licensed Flickr photos to blog content. The image to the left is an example of a Yahoo Shortcuts “badge”. As you are […] Continue Reading…

Reasons I moved from blogspot Blogger

You may be wondering why I made the move over to WordPress rather than just transferring my blogspot Blogger blog to my own domain. Certain things bugged me about Blogger. Some of these have been solved by the new Blogger but it only possible, at this stage, to use classic blogger on your own domain. Disadvantages of using blogspot Blogger: I did not have as much control over my site as I would like. I enjoy tinkering with the coding and page customization. I wanted to add features that were not available to Blogger. Some features available to other blogging […] Continue Reading…
