NASA, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration, has started to churn out quite a few open source projects. Though this doesn’t have any impact on the blogsphere (yet), it’s exciting to see a government agency of this level working in an open source environment, effectively asking its citizens for help with projects, while simultaneously making some outstanding code available for anyone to use. As an added bonus, the new code site is powered by WordPress.

About two weeks about, we asked what your blogging resolutions were for this year. Similar to last year, most of you mentioned a plan to post more often in 2012. There are many ways to find more things to write about out. On of the most fun is to just plug yourself into various social media outlets, like Twitter and Facebook, and just follow along to find topics that interest you. Instead of replying with a 140 character tweet, write a fully detailed post on your blog. Similarly, if you comment on someone else’s blog, you might want to write a blog post to go with it. If social networking isn’t your thing, and you’d prefer just some direct inspiration, stop by The Daily Post or Plinky for daily challenges and topics that might inspire you to write a quick post. If words really aren’t your thing, but you still […]

Since its launch well over a year ago, WP-Snippets has quickly grown into the most popular one-stop-shop for useful WordPress code snippets. WP-Snippets has finally received a major upgrade, making it even easier for you to find the code you’re looking for. The various snippets have now been broken up into categories, and more words can be filtered to narrow down the choices to just the snippet you need. If you find one that you’re particularly fond of, you can now favorite a snippet to leave it on the front page when you come back to the site. Speaking of the site, it now has a fully responsive design, so it looks great on your mobile phone when gathering snippets on the go. If you’re a fan of WordPress and have a few snippets to share on WP-Snippets, there is also a new contribute page to satisfy your urge to […]

Splinder, a popular Italian blogging service, will be closing its doors on January 31st. If you’re Splinder user in need of a new home, fear not! Moving to WordPress is super-easy. If you want to try a similar hosted blogging service, WordPress.com has you covered with a new importer, a handy guide, and free support if something goes wrong. If you think it’s time to host your own blog, you might be interested in running a self-hosted WordPress.org blog. There are no Splinder importers for WordPress.org yet, but you can import to a WordPress.com blog, then export the resulting blog to any WordPress.org installation. Before you choose between WordPress.com and WordPress.org, make sure that you review the differences between the two. Having been through two similar service closures myself, I recommend moving your Splinder blog as soon as possible. When those doors shut, they tend to shut for good, and you […]
