How to Setup a WordPress Blog in 5 Minutes


http://www.jeffbullas.com

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.How to Setup a WordPress Blog in 5 Minutes

It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.

If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.

The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.

It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.

Blogging service shootout: Blogger vs. WordPress

If you don’t have that expertise, or want to spend your valuable time on creating content rather than wrangling with technical issues, you can opt for a service that hosts your blog for you — for free. These hosted blogging services take care of all the nitty-gritty backend work, and allow you to focus on what’s most important to you: The content of your blog.

They offer pre-built content management systems that make it easy to write, edit and manage blog posts, letting you decide whether to write using WYSIWIG editors or instead insert the code yourself. They also let you switch back and forth between the two when you want.


Via Scoop.ithuman being in – perfección

We pit Google’s Blogger against WordPress to see which service is easier, more feature-filled and better for users who need a simple hosted blog.

There are a wealth of blogging services and software out there — so which should you use? If you’re a business or other professional organization, you probably want to use full-bore website building software that includes a blogging component. However, that type of software requires experience with server setups, HTML code and site management.  Leer más “Blogging service shootout: Blogger vs. WordPress”

Your comment policy offers an opportunity to inform readers about the benefits of commenting on your blog e.g. some blogs offer “do-follow” links in the comment which are very valuable for SEO backlinking. Some use plugins like Comment Luv or Top commentators offering improved visibility to those who comment. Others reply to every comment. Highlight any such benefit of commenting on your blog so readers understand the true benefits of participating in discussions.

2. Ask Reader to Comment

A study has found that explicitly asking your website visitors to “Please ReTweet” your content generates 4 times more ReTweets than without. The same applies to comments as well.

WordPress sees 250% increase in imports from Posterous after acquisition by Twitter

All you have to do is go to Tools → Import in your Dashboard and click on “Posterous.” You then have to enter your Posterous login details, and WordPress will email you when the import is ready.

While Tumblr seems more similar to Posterous, the import tool makes the process of migrating to WordPress quite convenient, and is likely to boost this trend.

One thing is for certain, your own hosted WordPress blog isn’t going to get acquired without your say so. If that’s not reason to move, I’m not sure what is.

As we reported yesterday, the short-form blogging platform Posterous has sold to Twitter, only 19 days after denying any sale plans. Considering Twitter’s fame in acqui-hiring startups and shutting them down, it didn’t take long for Posterous’ users to start looking for alternative options.

One of them is WordPress, which is clearly winning from this situation; according toblog that saw a 250% increase in imports from Posterous over the last hours. The import tool itself isn’t new; it has been available for two years, but Posterous’ recent acquisition obviously gave it a boost. Here’s what it looks like:

The navigation bar is an inevitable element in every website. In this post I want to share with you some simple practices and suggestions aimed at designing a perfect HTML navigation bar.

Let’s start illustrating the typical HTML structure. Here is a schematization of a typical navigation bar that contains some links:

The HTML code is really simple, nothing more than <div> layer with an unordered list inside. As you probably know, the HTML5 specification introduced a new element that identifies the navigation bar which is the <nav> tag. The <nav> tag substitutes the more general <div> tag but, as you can see in the following code, it doesn’t change the conceptual structure of the navigation bar.

5 Tips for Aspiring Web App Developers

So, you’re not content with just using the social web; you want to be part of building it, too.

As a budding or beginning web app developer, you’ve got a difficult but rewarding path ahead of you. You have to master (or at least attempt to master) the intricacies of OOP and scripting languages, learn to build web apps the hard way (practice, practice, practice), and network your way into a few job opportunities. You must also decide whether you’d like to work as a solo/consultant/freelancer, a startup employee or founder, or a rank-and-file developer at an established company.

Here are a few tips and words of advice that might make your individual path a bit easier and hopefully a bit shorter. We’ve also compiled a gallery of 140-character tips from veterans at the end of this post.

If you’ve already found success as a front-end web dev, we welcome your suggestions in the comments, as well.

So, you’re not content with just using the social web; you want to be part of building it, too.

As a budding or beginning web app developer, you’ve got a difficult but rewarding path ahead of you. You have to master (or at least attempt to master) the intricacies of OOP and scripting languages, learn to build web apps the hard way (practice, practice, practice), and network your way into a few job opportunities. You must also decide whether you’d like to work as a solo/consultant/freelancer, a startup employee or founder, or a rank-and-file developer at an established company.

Here are a few tips and words of advice that might make your individual path a bit easier and hopefully a bit shorter. We’ve also compiled a gallery of 140-character tips from veterans at the end of this post.

If you’ve already found success as a front-end web dev, we welcome your suggestions in the comments, as well.

1. Go Open Source

By far the most oft-repeated words of advice we heard from masters of the web dev trade were these: Put in some time on open-source projects. The hands-on experience will challenge you, educate you and help you build your body of work.

Aside from code for code’s sake, open source projects are a good way to meet other devs and do some networking. You’ll have the opportunity to work with people who are much more skilled and experienced than you are yet; take full advantage of this situation and be a sponge.

SourceForge and GitHub and good places to start looking for open source projects that appeal to you; also, as you follow various blogs around the web and see what projects might need a few extra hands. Sites like Code for America and organizations such as the Mozilla Foundation are always looking for good developers with free time.

Finally, when working on open source apps, not only will you get great practice and be able to learn from some really excellent engineers; you’ll also be giving back to the community. As some would say, creating and sharing free and open-source software is one of the best things you can do to help your neighbors as a developer.

2. Expand Your Web-Browsing Repertoire

“Fish where the fish are” is an old advertising axiom. Its meaning is fairly obvious: If you’re aiming to meet, influence or otherwise “catch” a particular group of people, you have to be seen and heard in the places (real or digital) where they congregate.

If you’re “fishing” for other developers — the people who will teach you, help you, and with any luck, hire you — you’ll need to add a new set of websites to your browsing and bookmarking repertoire.

Hacker News (Hacker News), while it occasionally deviates toward social media/Silicon Valley in-jokes and gossip, can be a wonderful resource for meeting other developers, getting advice and learning about the ecosystem, particularly where startups are concerned. The site is an offshoot of Y Combinator, the well-known startup incubator.

GitHub’s Gist, Forrst, UseTheSource and CodeSnipp.it are four places on the web where you can go to see and post brief code examples. Be open to critique, and don’t be a show off. For UseTheSource, we recommend lurking until you’re ready to post your most stellar hacks, as the site is intended to be a repository for beautiful code.

Other sites to check out include SourceForge, Stack Overflow (Stack Overflow), Google Code and Google Groups (Google Groups). There are literally hundreds of solid online resources for web app developers; which sites you follow and which communities you join really depends on your desired areas of expertise and spheres of professional interest.

Once you’re ready to move into the work force as a web dev, our readers have recommended Dice, ODesk, and even Craigslist (Craigslist) as good spots for job-hunting, particularly for freelance work.

3. Network Your Socks Off

Of course, along with all this new web-browsing activity, you’ll be seeing a horde of new and friendly faces: The developers and designers that make up the web app-building community.

Blogger (blogger), entrepreneur and developer Jesse Stay says, “Network, network, network! Find your future boss on Facebook (Facebook), LinkedIn (LinkedIn) and Twitter (Twitter),” and his advice rings true. If you can locate and befriend a few like-minded, highly skilled professional web devs, they might be able to guide and help you in your career as you broaden and deepen your skill set.

We recommend joining a few Facebook groups and checking out developer-oriented Twitter lists from Twitter users you already follow and respect. Once you’ve located the people you’d like to emulate, go back to Tip 1 and see how you can offer your time and skills to any open source projects those people might be involved in.

The golden rules of networking still apply: Give as much as you’d like to receive, and be a good resource and connector for others, not just a parasite.

4. Show Your Code

Once you’re practicing, networking, reading, working and generating piles of beautifully functional code, you’re going to want to show it off to the world. After all, as one reader said, “GitHub is the new résumé.”

Use a robust, accessible code repository such as GitHub or SourceForge, release your code into the wild. And don’t stop there; be sure to blog about any clever hacks or efficient new ways of doing things that you may discover along the way. Make sure your code samples show good architecture, documentation and versatility.

Showing others your code is equal parts giving back (by open-sourcing it) and self-promotion (if the code is good, that is). If the code you’re posting is worthy, then sharing it is a win-win scenario.

5. Market Yourself

For some devs, bragging is second nature. For others, self-promotion is an uncomfortable stretch. No matter which camp you fit into (and even if you’re somewhere in between), you’ll need to learn how to gracefully and effectively promote yourself as a web applications developer.

It goes without saying that you’ll want to put the full force of your coding skills into building an elegant website. We don’t mean elegant in the general sense of the term; we mean “elegant” as in “the intersection of simplicity and functionality” in form and function. And it goes without saying that the source code for your site should be immaculate, as well.

Focus on creating a good portfolio that shows a breadth of work on a variety of projects. Your apps could be entirely open-source; you could also include client work, if you’ve had the opportunity to develop web apps for others. Make sure this experience is attractively highlighted on your résumé, along with any languages or frameworks you know and your proficiency in each.

Once you have a great website that showcases your skills, make sure you and others link to it frequently in your email signature and from your other online profiles, and don’t be afraid to show your Twitter and Facebook friends when you add a new item to your portfolio or update a section of your website. Whether you use physical or digital business cards, make sure your website is the most prominent link the receiver will see.


Bonus Round: Little Things Mean a Lot


  • If you’re looking for full-time work, be a great developer and a well-rounded candidate with communication skills.
  • Always thoroughly comment your code.
  • Be as good at reading code as you are at writing it.
  • If you’re a developer, learn something about design, UX/UI, business and web economics (especially if you’re going into a startup).
  • Customize your personal growth: If you don’t get a job, ask why and what you can do to improve.
  • Remember the big picture — make sure your code is built with scalability in mind.
  • Commit to perpetual self-education.
  • Don’t give up.

A Brief History of 9 Popular Blogging Platforms

Even though Microsoft’s spell check insists that “blog” and “blogger” are not real words, they’ve been been in the dictionary since 2003. Blogs and their platforms have a lengthy history.

The beginnings of blogging was a time not unlike today: Plaid was in style, a beloved rock star had passed, and the Internet (Internet) was just gaining momentum on college campuses. In 1994, then Swarthmore College student Justin Hall started an online diary called Justin’s Links from the Underground. The site, which first started as a guide to the web, soon became an account of Hall’s life, and earned him the surely coveted title of pioneer blogger. Three years later, Jorn Barger would coin the term “weblog,” and it’s short form, “blog,” was later coined by Peter Merholz.

Today, the web is comprised of millions of blogs covering every topic imaginable. Here is short history of some of the medium’s most popular platforms.

5 maneras de probar que un post es mío

Escrito por Martín Códax

Todo transcurre con normalidad en tu vida bloguera hasta que un día ves que alguien en otro blog ha fusilado un post tuyo saltándose el “aviso legal”, “condiciones de uso” o los términos de la licencia que hayas otorgado a los visitantes de tu blog. Tu primera reacción va a ser la de irritación, a la que seguirá una segunda fase de indignación, quizá no tan abrasiva como la primera pero seguramente más duradera y molesta. [Más…]

Porque cabrea, y bastante, que a uno le despojen del fruto de su trabajo sin siquiera hacer una pequeñita mención a tu autoría o, como me decís muchos que me consultáis, “sin enlazarme, ni nada“. Entonces intentáis una fase conciliatoria con el autor del blog que os ha ninguneado el post, la foto, etc y no conseguís un resultado satisfactorio (aquello acaba en bronca e intercambio de barbarismos) o bien, como suele ser frecuente, obtenéis la callada por respuesta… y la inacción más deprimente: el post que atenta contra tu autoría, contra tus derechos de propiedad intelectual, permanece donde está y puede que obteniendo un rendimiento comercial que tú no obtienes en tu blog.

Añadir el botón de “Me gusta” de Facebook en Blogger


Escrito por Álvaro Paricio el 28 de Abril de 2010

Blogger Facebook

Ya os hablé hace bastante tiempo sobre cómo integrar nuestro blog de Blogger con Twitter, una de las redes sociales más de moda en estos momentos. Pero si hay una red social que realmente está triunfando en todo el mundo es Facebook, así que ¿sería una buena idea integrar nuestro blog con ella no?

Si usáis Facebook, y apuesto a que prácticamente todos vosotros lo haréis en mayor o menor medida, sabréis que cuando nos gusta algún enlace, foto o grupo hay una opción llamada “Me gusta” para dejar claro que compartimos esa opinión, nos hace gracia o que literalmente nos gusta eso.

Así que lo que lo que vamos a hacer en este artículo es añadir el botón de “Me gusta” debajo de cada artículo de nuestro blog, para que nuestros lectores más vagos que no suelen dejar comentarios al menos muestren su conformidad con el post y para que los que comentan también puedan dejar más claro aun que les ha gustado.

Add Facebook Plugins to your Blog – Quick Guide


facebookIf you have tried adding Facebook plugins to your website before but then skipped thinking the implementation was getting too geeky for you, I suggest that you explore the option again.

That’s because Facebook has now made it extremely easy for anyone to integrate Facebook social elements into their website or blog – just copy-paste a single line of HTML code and your site will instantly become Facebook-ready.

It all starts with a Like button that you need to add at the bottom of every post (or any other location) on your blog. Here’s the code:

If you are using WordPress software, open the single.php file and add the following code. You may change the height and width of the IFRAME as per your blog design.

<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=<?php echo urlencode(get_permalink()); ?>&amp;layout=standard&amp;show-faces=true&amp;width=530&amp;height=60&amp;action=like&amp;colorscheme=light" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:530px; height:60px"></iframe>

If you are using the classic template of Blogger, the code is:

<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=<$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$>&amp;layout=standard&amp;show-faces=true&amp;width=530&amp;height=60&amp;action=like&amp;colorscheme=light" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:530px; height:60px"></iframe>

And if you are running the modern version of Blogger, the code becomes:

<iframe src="http://www.facebook.com/plugins/like.php?href=data:post.url&amp;layout=standard&amp;show-faces=true&amp;width=530&amp;height=60&amp;action=like&amp;colorscheme=light" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" allowTransparency="true" style="border:none; overflow:hidden; width:530px; height:60px"></iframe>

A reader on your site, who is logged into her Facebook account, can now give your story a “Thumbs up” by simply clicking this Like button. She will also have to option to publish a snippet of your blog story on to her Facebook profile.

Then you have the Activity widget that shows in near real-time how people are interacting with your stories. If the user is logged into Facebook, the activity widget will show the activity of her friends on your web site else it’ll show everyone’s activity.

However, the most exciting social plugin for Facebook in the new recommendations engine. It shows a list of most popular stories on your blog as determined by the count of Facebook users who have “liked” that story.

Consejos para que nuestro blog cargue más rápido


Escrito por Álvaro Paricio

Hasta ahora en esta serie de tutoriales para Blogger hemos hablado mucho de temas que tienen que ver con la estética del blog. Por ejemplo, cómo integrar Twitter en el blog, añadir páginas estáticas, cambiar la cabecera de Blogger o modificar el tema de Blogger. Pero hoy vamos a cambiar, vamos a hablar de aspectos más internos de nuestro sitio.

Una de las cosas más importantes en nuestro blog a parte del contenido y la estética, es el hecho de hacerlo más atractivo para los lectores. Y una buena forma para conseguirlo es consiguiendo que cargue lo más rápido posible.
Los blogs que tardan una eternidad en cargar ya los miramos con otros ojos de primeras, y ese es un muy mal síntoma si queremos enganchar a nuevos lectores y mantener a nuestros fieles seguidores.

La mismísima gente de Google nos da los siguientes consejos para que podamos agilizar la carga de nuestro blog de Blogger.

Número de posts en la página principal

Desde Google nos recomiendan mostrar como máximo 10 posts en la página principal. Es obvio que cuantos menos artículos mostremos en la primera página menos tiempo tardará el blog en cargar.
Para hacerlo nos dirigimos a “Configuración – Formato” y elegimos como máximo 10, como ya hemos comentado.

posts en blogger

JavaScript y links

Como es lógico, nos recomiendan que si queremos meter códigos de JavaScript y links utilicemos los widgets de Blogger. Pero si queremos utilizar JavaScript externos (de third parties que se llaman) nos aconsejan que los pongamos en el pie del blog, y si los tenemos que poner en la barra lateral, que los pongamos lo más abajo posible en la barra.

Imágenes, vídeos, etc…

Cualquiera sabe que cuantas más imágenes y vídeos tengamos en el blog y en los posts más tardará en cargar. Y que cuanto más tarde el blog en cargar, menos interesante o apetecible les parecerá a nuestras visitas. Sin embargo, el incluir en los posts imágenes, vídeos o presentaciones es una muy buena forma de hacer el blog más atractivo y que se vea mejor a primera vista, así que tendremos que conseguir mezclar ambas cosas.

Para ello nos aconsejan disminuir el tamaño de las imágenes al mínimo posible mientras sean visibles y no se vean pixeladas.
Si utilizamos imágenes de otros sitios, nos aconsejan que las subamos a los Web Albums de Picasa.
Si tenemos un gran número de imágenes que mostrar (de un viaje por ejemplo), nos vuelven a aconsejar que las subamos a Picasa y que pongamos un link al álbum en el post o en la barra lateral.

Otras sugerencias

Si hemos utilizado CSS propio, lo mejor es incluirlo al principio de la página.
También nos tendremos que fijar en qué elementos son más importantes de nuestro blog y queremos que carguen más rápido o incluso antes que el resto.
Para ello nos aconsejan utilizar Stopwatch.
Gracias a esta herramienta, simplemente introduciendo en la web la dirección de nuestro blog nos dirá el tiempo que tarda en cargar el blog y veremos un contador de tiempo en el que nos podremos fijar lo que más tarda en cargar y cuantos segundos le lleva.
Una vez con esos elementos identificados, podemos proceder a aplicar los trucos que acabamos de explicar.

Estos son los consejos que nos dan en Google para agilizar la carga de nuestros sitios de una forma muy sencilla y sin meternos en cosas muy complicadas.

En general, algunos de los trucos que se presentan aquí podrían no ser aplicables a todos los blogs, principalmente porque, en algunos casos, el servicio de hosting no tiene activada, o no es posible activar, ciertas características en sus servidores.

Share Flickr, Picasa, Gmail & Facebook Photos All In One Place With Showzey


As a professional blogger having accounts on multiple social media sites is very beneficial for me. But for average computer users the multiple social media accounts pose a significant management problem; more specifically, photo management.

Our photographs and images are scattered across all our social media accounts. Suppose we want to share one picture from a network A on network B. To do this we normally log in to account A, save the picture, then upload it on account B.

Thankfully with Showzey, that lengthy process no longer needs to be employed.

Showzey is a free website that lets us gather and catalog photos from Gmail, Picasa, Facebook, and Flickr. We can then organize these photos and proceed to share them on Facebook or email them.

The function of the site is best understoof by trying it out. Click on the “Get Started” button on Showzey’s homepage:

showzey1

You will be prompted to select the services you wish to use with Showzey.

showzey2

Then you will proceed to connect your respective service accounts with Showzey.

With each account you connect, you will asked for a confirmation from that particular service. In case of Flickr, this is the message you will receive:
