We bloggers need a rallying cry. My fellow WordPressers, we can promote blogging as an alternative to social media. The personal blog is a fine place to share with others. We can network together well this way, on the open web. Empty the silos. Share your photos to your blog. Your status updates. Press those words. Blog on! Continue reading Blog On!
Where do you write words in the Google domain? Docs, the word processor. And Keep, the notes app. They work together too, so words can easily go from one to the other. But what about Blogger? It’s been a Google product for like 16 years. Yet you must copy/paste text from Docs to the Blogger Editor like it’s still 2004. This must change. Docs and … Continue reading Places To Write On Google
You like to write, right? Then you want the right tool for the write-job. I’m talking about typing on a keyboard; no pens or pencils, sorry. Some tools are exclusive to Apple devices (Ulysses). Others are ubiquitous (Google Docs). In this write-up, I share some ways I’ve tried writing. And at the end, I throw in links to several writing tools. Continue reading A Word On Writing Tools

So here I am, being assimilated to the blocks. Continue reading Unblocking The Block Editor

OK, who else has been a hold-out on WordPress like me? I admit it. I’ve avoided the new Block Editor for over a year! Change is hard. I like writing and editing text, not blocks. But I figure I’d better get with the program. So I’m trying it out. We’ll see how it goes. Continue reading The Block Editor
When it comes to blogging, there’s one site that always comes to mind: Blogger. My earliest blogs were hosted there with a blogspot address. Believe it or not, Blogger is still around, but it seems to have languished under Google’s passive watch. In fact, I’m surprised it has not already ended up in the Google graveyard, outliving even Google+. So what’s up with Blogger? Continue reading What Happened To Blogger?
