I write my posts in Word, add in the links using the fabled “ctrl+k” short cut, taught to me by the amazing Alex Livingstone at Weber Shandwick UK’s Public Affairs department, and then copy all and paste into the WordPress text box.
Can anyone explain to me why I should download a blog writing tool like Windows Live Writing (Beta) and what the benefits are?
That’d be awesome. Thanks.
While I’m blogging about blogging, why not talk about two new buttons that appeared in my WordPress dashboard. Previously there were just three buttons in the dashboard pane – “Dashboard”, “Blog stats” and “Feed stats”. All of which do exactly what they say on the tin.
Now there are a couple of new ones – “Tag Surfer” and “My Comments”. “My Comments” allows you to track all the comments you’ve left on other WordPress blogs. So no need for co.mments.
The other button, “Tag Surfer” allows you to search the WordPress community for other blogs that use the same tags as you do. So less excuse for me to lapse into my battle against Technorati and a great way for WordPress to increase its community’s traffic.
At the moment, I’m loving WordPress. They’re pushing out some cool new features and really proivding some added value to their extremely passionate community of users.
Anyone reading this blog and wanting start their own blog, I’d definitely recommend WordPress, although I’m yet to see a blog on Blogger’s new Beta.
If you have, leave a link in the comments section.
