Temporary Change of Pilots – Preserving Continuity

5
responses

Your regular favorite Mark is on vacation for about a week. The task of keeping this blog busy has fallen to me. I will try to maintain Mark’s standards and bring you the best of weblog tools over this period. Everything will continue normally, hopefully. I used to blog actively at WordLog until academic pressures forced me to take a break from blogging. Regaining lost rhythm is difficult, and that blog hasn’t been updated in months. Other more recent pursuits have taken the upper-hand now. So what is your strategy for maintaining the perfect blogging rhythm?, do you guys have a “Workflow” for maintaining frequent updates to your professional blogs? I’d love to hear from you. Write a post on your weblog and then pingback this post (just link to this post) so everyone else can also learn about your techniques. Optionally I will try to condense the best practices […]

Scrapblog – online scrapbooks

1
response

Scrapblog – online scrapbooks: I was slightly apprehensive when I first came upon this link with the thinking that this is going to be another place to store photos and build slideshows. Another group of LLCers trying to break into the Flickr, YouTube hype. I think I changed my mind after looking through the scrapblogs that are already created. This could be interesting and fun for the casual blogger. I think of these as photo albums on steroids. You can even embed your scrapblogs into existing blogs. Looks like you drag and drop peices into your “slideshow” from existing objects.

No
responses

WP plugin: Bad Behavior 2 This new version of Bad Behavior has a bunch of new features including faster code, variable strictness of traffic filtering, lesser usage of the database (which is really important for higher traffic sites) and a new wrapper API. Bad Behavior is now also available for ExpressionEngine, MediaWiki and generic non-database mode for any PHP script, forum, guestbook, Movable Type, etc. Thanks Michael va email.

Newshutch

Newshutch: Web based, AJAXified news aggregator that shows some promise but is still buggy. I tried importing my feeds and it died with a rails error. I also wish they had a daily digest page like so many other news readers. I do like the interface and the initial speed though that might decay with users and/or popularity.

Related results from Search Engines?

1
response

Related results from Search Engines? Interesting question. I know that I had written a WordPress hack sometime ago that would post related links from Waypath but it was cumbersome and lacked caching. This might be an interesting plugin if someone wants to attempt to write it and it has not been written already. Caching the queries would be a must.

Technorati Competitor: Gnoos

responses

Technorati Competitor: Gnoos Australian Blog Search Engine Gnoos is providing a similar search engine (as Technorati) but with an Aussie influence. It is still much faster than Technorati and seems to produce sparse but spam free results. Not nearly as many features as in Technorati, but that might be a benefit rather than a disadvantage in maintaining a fast response. Also, in related news, TechCrunch is reporting that Ask/Bloglines is offering a limited blog search and they are conducting their news searches from within 7000 pre-approved blogs and news sites. This blog is not one of those being searched.

Writely – The Web Word Processor

responses

Writely – The Web Word Processor: Though this app is trying to find a niche, I find little use for it outside of the corporate arena (reminds me of Exchange Public Folders on steroids). However, the remotely hosted nature might deter those corporate souls. This app will let you create/edit your word processing documents online while sharing it with a bunch of people. Neat features include simultaneous editing, MS Word/Open Office integeration, RSS feeds for public documents etc. The service is free.
