WordPress Featured Posts and Images

Let me tell you in advance that I love wordpress and all its themes. WordPress also has a steady fan following who after trying WordPress.com for a while move to the self-hosted WordPress.org. The best feature perhaps is the uncluttered look which makes a reader look at the content rather than the many ads that are usually displayed on the blog.  Continue reading

Pinterest interest

This is a quick post on pinterest. It has greatly helped me in organizing the pictures I like. I can create picture sets or boards using my pictures or pictures of others.

I stumbled across another blog and saw a pinterest badge displayed and really liked what I saw. Using this website,  I was able to display pictures I like in one place while crediting the original owner for it. It has a fun way to arrange the pictures and categorize them into different groups.  You can use “Pin” which is a browser bookmark like “Press This” feature of WordPress. You could also “Pin” your pictures on your website and they are displayed in pinterest . You can pin your favorite photos on the internet by logging into pinterest and pinning the images you like on the page . It’s as simple as that.

It does look like tumblr’s reblog feature. You can also follow others and share your pictures with friends on Twitter/Facebook.

Here is my complete pinterest photo board now.

To make your own pinterest, visit pinterest landing and ask for an invite. It might take a few days before you receive an invite since it is still in private beta state but it’s worth the wait !!

Post A Week Challenge

Sooo…. WordPress is having a post a week and post a day for 2011. I decided to sign up for post a week contest. It seems like a nice challenge to give oneself.  I found many bloggers signing up for the post a day challenge. Well, good luck to them 🙂 .

Apart from the fitness routine that I am following these days,  my mind needs a workout too.  So, I am going to make use of “The DailyPost” to help me along the way, including asking for help when I need it and encouraging others when I can.

If you already read my blog, I hope you’ll encourage me with comments and likes, and good will along the way.

Here’s to creating meaningful conversations and exploring new ideas.
