Digg saturation: Patrick from Blogstorm came up with a way to rank websites using a Digg saturation value that he come up with by searching Google with a specific URI. Apparently Google really likes sites that are Dugg. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=site%3Adigg.com+weblogtoolscollection.com To check your own Digg saturation, just replace weblogtoolscollection.com above with your own blogs’ URI. What is your Digg saturation?

Business of Blogging, Cool Scripts

BlogBackupOnline: I found out about this service while reading through Leo Laporte’s latest post in which he talks about how he used BlogBackupOnline to import all old VOX posts from his old blog and restore them onto WordPress. From their help PDF, Techrigy’s BlogBackupOnline allows users to create a full blog backup, schedule automatic daily backups, and restore or export a blog. The service is free for the first 50 MB (while in Beta) and backups can be scheduled and restores can be incremental. This service can be used to import blogs, restore single posts, export blogs from one platform into another among other features. Supported platforms include Blogger, WordPress, Friendster, LiveJournal, TypePad, Serendipity, Windows Live Spaces, Movable Type, Terapad, Vox and Multiply. A worthy tool indeed. Priced right, it could be a silent soldier that everyone depends upon.

AirPress: Video Blog from your Desktop

AirPress: This post has been sitting in draft for some time, waiting for me to actually produce a video post but time has run away from me. AirPress is an Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) based desktop blogging client that is still in beta but has a few cool features including video blogging right from the desktop with a simple webcam. At first glance I had thought that AirPress lets you post “webcam streaming” to your blog, which would have been tres cool (albeit very hard to manage) but I must have misunderstood the somewhat sparse instructions on the AirPress site. At this time, you can add flash, video, music, pictures etc through AirPress. I would have given them five thumbs up if they would have concentrated on media blogging instead of trying to be another desktop blogging client, but it definitely has potential but it also is buggy. Thanks David

Cool Scripts, General

I had come upon this technique sometime ago but with the recent change in the way Technorati looks, I wanted to document the link since it still appears to work. You can use the following URI to generate a PNG with incoming links to your blog for a given period using Technorati. There does seem to be a maximum number of days Technorati keeps track of links and that number is less than 365, closer to 200. Just change the BlogURL value to the URI of your blog, and modify the size of the graph as you see fit for your blog or application. http://www.technorati.com/chartimg?q=BlogURL&days=3600&width=460&height=200&type=url I come up with the following graph for WeblogToolsCollection.com

Managing Spam Maintenance with Akismet Auntie Spam Version 2: engtech has updated his “Akismet Auntie Spam” greasemonkey script. This new version has some nice improvements including collation of spam from the same IPs, grouping by sender, better usability and quite a few other slick new features. If a lot of spam gets caught in your Akismet plugin and you need to run through them quickly to weed out false positives, this script is the ticket. I have been using it since the original beta and I like it.

Cool Scripts, Photolog Script, WordPress Hack

I recently bought myself a Treo 755p with an unlimited data plan and had the itch again to resurrect my moblog. Since I had hacked up scripts in the past to be able to directly moblog to WordPress from SprintPCS phones, I thought about recurrecting them again. However, I also had purchased a Flickr Pro account a couple of months ago and I figured that I would look into Flickr before I went any further. Sure enough, Flickr had something in place already, though the instructions were a little scattered and hard to find. So here is what I used: Flickr account Latest WordPress code on a blog that is setup already Camera phone with data plan (Sprint in my case) Steps to setup your moblog: Visit your Flickr account, log in. Sign up for a free account if you do not have one. Visit http://www.flickr.com/blogs.gne and setup your blog. […]

OneClick Install Firefox Extension: Anirudh had written the OneClick Plugin for WordPress that allows a user to upload and install themes and Plugins to their WordPress blog with one click. But to make his plugin more useful and extensible, he has realsed a Firefox Extension for it as well. The Firefox Extension adds a contextual menu item to your Firefox that will let you directly install plugins and themes from their zip download locations. Just right click on the download link for a plugin for theme and install it on your blog with One Click. Thanks to Digital Inspiration for pointing out the extension.
