Neither her nor her blog are new to the internet, however, I’m guessing some of you may not have found her yet.
She describes herself as
…an accomplished Information and Technical Consultant specializing in the entire implementation of a WordPress based website including installation, theme design, upgrades, unique customizations and ongoing site maintenance.
She knows her stuff and kindly shares great hints and tips with her readers.
In a post titled: 10 More Interesting and Useful Plugins: Comments, Posts and Databases one of the plugins she tells us about is the,
Public Post Preview – This plugin creates a link of a preview post to send to anyone so they can look at the preview. I really could have used this when I started blogging. I was so nervous about each article that I wanted someone to check them for me.
I’m going to use tip #8 from her post and generated a favicon for my blog.
If you’re like me, you love to either just look at other themes or try new ones. In the post WordPress – How To Find the Best Free Themes she recommends three sources, with one being,
I have a huge collection of delicious bookmarks and have been bookmarking themes for years. I have not checked the links or weeded out the old links recently, but I have a list of almost 50 theme resources. You can subscribe to the RSS feed listed above or check out all of my bookmarks….
Although some free themes require the blogger to keep links in the footer, they do offer a blogger an inexpensive way to showcase their work.
The last post I’m highlighting is probably the most important. It’s titled WordPress Login Security, but it applies whether you are using WordPress, or not.
In part, she shares,
You’re probably thinking why would anyone want to hack into my WordPress site? Why would they want my parenting, WordPress, or green-living articles? Well, the hackers don’t really want that data. And you can’t really apply standard login to what hackers do and don’t do. For most of them, the success of the hack is what matters – not what they are gaining access to.
Just knowing this is a great reminder for all of us to tighten up the security on our blogs.
I promise not to keep you in suspense any longer.
