“Blog Bling” for [yourblog].wordpress.com

June 23, 2007 at 6:19 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

The technical blog, Lorelle on WordPress, contains useful information about dressing up and tricking out WordPress blogs.  Importantly, the blog shares a treasure trove of tips and guidance for those exploring how to get the most from WordPress.com features and functionality.

I was so happy to find this February 2007 series of articles, WordPress.com Blog BlingI celebrated by creating some musical blog bling:

[sonific 16e6d16d89ae04d4463be34cb8a58d32660bb51a] Ur-Electro-surf noir/exotica instrumental

Thanks to Lorelle VanFossen for authoring the WordPress blog.  Her book, Blogging Tips: What Bloggers Won’t Tell You About Blogging, is published by Splashpress Media.

  1. Thanks for the link. Always glad to help. Also a bit of advice. You do not have to include the physical link, as you’ve already created the link in the text. Why be redundant? :D
    ================
    I am much obliged to Lorelle for her advice. In separate email communication I explained to her that I included physical links because I thought it would help with page accessibility. She disabused me of this notion. As I understand it now, Web readers work with HTML code and “understand” URLs and descriptive information (ALT tags) linked to the text and images in a web page entry. I’ve scrubbed redundant URLs from entries, which I think improves the look and feel of the blog entries.
