When you build a website one of the things most people want are visitors.  New visitors are great because they tend to turn into return visitors.  People will return to your website because they find the content entertaining, informative and worth their time. However, you know how busy we get these days.  We save a link to our favorites for a website and promise that we will be back on a regular basis.  How often do you really go to your favorites directory and go back visiting websites? I know my answer – rarely. So what can you offer that might draw your site visitors back to your site every once in a while?  WordPress has this great ability to create RSS (stands for Really Simple Syndication) feeds.  These RSS feeds are read through most modern internet browsers, stand alone free reader programs, web based reader programs and even office […]

Vladimir Prelovac has come up with yet another cool plugin, this time called Live Blogroll. Live Blogroll replaces the default blogroll in that when a user hovers their mouse over a link, the rss feed from that site is aggregated in an Ajax created box showcasing the most recent (configured number) of posts. The Live Blogroll uses internal caching for feed discovery and WordPress caching for RSS feeds to keep everything from slowing down to a crawl. Vladimir is on a roll in terms of creating cool WordPress plugins. This one is yet another shining example.

Geoffrey Sneddon, one of the developers behind the popular syndication plugin called SimplePie has announced that he will be discontinuing his role as an active developer. In a blog post published on the official SimplePie dev blog , Geoffrey explains why it’s time for him to move on. Schoolwork, lack of available time for the project and what free time he has is spent on the HTML 5 specification and Tolerant HTTP Parsing specification. However, a couple of the modules that deal with the SimplePie API will be maintained. Despite Geoffrey leaving his development duties, he has left himself open to take more of a consulting role with the 1.x SP code base. The good news?

Opinion: Flock Never Stood A Chance I simply do not see the need for Flock in my set of web tools, but then again I have never used tools developed by others to perform my itch/scratch functions (translated: written my own or emulated an existing one when I needed them). I believe that Flock is a good idea but the need is too fragmented. The number of people what would want the gamut of features that Flock offers from within their browser is not enough to employ 13 people (I think) on a full time basis. That being said, I am sure that Flock and its team has a lot of talent and good ideas going for them. I would just need to be really razzled and dazzled for me to switch to another browser besides the Fox.
