There has been a lot of changes at WeblogToolsCollection.com and we continue to try and make the blog as useful of a tool as possible with the least headaches. Here is some important news and some tidbits I would like to bring to everyones’ attention. Some of my regulars might have noticed that Ajay has been getting his feet quite wet recently on this blog. Ajay D’Souza has agreed to be an author on WeblogToolsCollection and will be concentrating on WordPress news, reviews and analysis of plugins, themes, hacks etc. I like his writing style and candor and really appreciate his openness and eagerness to learn.

Persistent Spam floods have taken over again. I wish these people would quit since it is not only hurting my blog, it is also hurting their own purposes. If spammers realize that if they flood/kill their victims, they do not get the spam on the blog. It is a lose-lose situation. In addition to spam floods, Performancing has been having some serious problems with their servers (I read something about a server move) and that has been causing slowdowns and random problems. I have disabled both for the time being. I have a message in to Chris about the ad problems and I hope to hear back soon but the ads will stay off until things settle down. As for comments, they will remain turned off until the spammers decide to move on. There HAS to be a solution to stop comment floods. For those that have suggested Bad Behavior […]

This is written by Sreejith Ramakrishnan When I refer to this statement I’m talking about the westernised version of karma other than the traditional Indian word. Here, karma refers to the “do good things and get good things” approach. Before starting off on this topic, read through the lines which follow, and feel the difference between an idealised world and the real world. So, here goes a little recap about blogging.Many of you may feel that this is just article about the evolution of blogging. But, the point is that, reading this would help you conceive […]

This is written by Manuel Amador Offending your audience for fun and profit: how to say controversial things Do you blog? Then offending your audience should be the least of your concerns. And here’s why. I’m going to begin this article with a single thought: I’d rather you insult me than have you be dishonest with me. And here’s why.

This is written by Jessica Beck Blog Juggling: Keeping All Your Online Identities In The Air at Once These days it isn’t unusual for people to have several online aliases. There’s the personal persona, hanging out on MySpace and YouTube; there’s the work persona, reading news feeds and doing online research; and there’s often a third, leisure persona, frequenting specialized bulletin boards and sites for hobbies like crafting, D&D or politics. And, of course, it wouldn’t be Web 2.0 if each of those aliases didn’t have its own blog. As someone who manages several distinctly different […]

Well, that’s not entirely true. Damn it, I’ve begun by lying to you. I am off to a bad start. Please let me try again. I can be a serious guy when it comes to my job or paying my mortgage or when I am in court defending myself against a totally trumped up charge of statutory rape (hey, she showed me her driver’s license, how was I supposed to know it was a fake?) But for the most part, the writing I do […]

This discipline has moved from merely being concerned with what’s in the file room to managing the myriad types of content, both paper and electronic, maintained by every enterprise. It is a fun and challenging industry.

As more a “doer” than a “reader,” I started out creating some websites. […]
