15 Things You Must Do When Changing WordPress Themes

The best thing about WordPress is that there are thousands of themes for customizing your blog. WordPress offers great flexibility. New themes are being created daily with many highly customizable free WordPress themes made available. The theme is actually just like a skin for the weblog. The overall look and presentation is also changed. The theme makes changes to the way you display the site but does not make changes to the basic software of the site.

Things You Must Do When Changing WordPress Themes

But, you might have painstakingly created several customized scripts and hand written codes having hand-entered parameters.

Ensuring Your Articles are Original and Informative


A while back, we shared a video series called the Top 10 Reasons for Article Rejection. It covered the top 10 reasons why articles are rejected.

In that video series, our goal was to identify the most common reasons why articles aren’t accepted into the EzineArticles database and how to avoid making those errors yourself.

As with any “Top 10″ list, there has to be a #11 that didn’t quite make the cut. With that said, we dedicated this post to that very rejection: Lack of Original or Informative Content. We did this for a couple of  reasons, one being that the rejection is far more common today than it was in the past and if I have to venture a guess, it is running very close to those on the list and secondly, I believe it warrants discussion as we receive many questions on these rejections and we’ll share them with you throughout this post for you all to learn from.

An excerpt from our Editorial Guidelines state, your articles “… must be informative and share your own exclusive and original content. Include tips, strategies, techniques, case-studies, analysis, opinions and commentary in your articles. We do not accept articles that contain more than 5 lines of quoted or sourced material.” Seguir leyendo “Ensuring Your Articles are Original and Informative”

Twitter users say it’s not worth paying for

BY Emma Woollacott

While half of all Americans use Twitter, not one would be prepared to pay for it, according to a survey.

The annual study of the impact of the internet on Americans by the Center for the Digital Future found that 49 percent of users said they’d used free micro-blogs such as Twitter.

But when asked if they would be willing to pay for Twitter, every one said no.”Such an extreme finding that produced a zero response underscores the difficulty of getting internet users to pay for anything that they already receive for free,” said Jeffrey Cole, director of the Center for the Digital Future at USC Annenberg’s School for Communication & Journalism.

“Twitter has no plans to charge its users, but this result illustrates, beyond any doubt, the tremendous problem of transforming free users into paying users. Online providers face major challenges to get customers to pay for services they now receive for free.” Seguir leyendo “Twitter users say it’s not worth paying for”
