This was the Week that Was, Vol. 6

This week, it’s been somewhat cooler, but as I mentioned yesterday, we did get quite a bit of rain, which is good for the garden outside. I also got the chance to use the new grill, I’ll post about that in the next couple of days, it was an interesting experience, that’s for sure.

Posts I liked –

  • Chag writes a letter to an ex-lover, ESPN. I can’t disagree with what he writes. I’ll add in that ESPN Classic really has gone downhill too – that’s a post in itself, I think
  • Here’s one for us blokes – Community Service Post. The pedantic one in me notices not only the main feature, but the fact that the woman in the first picture is fuelling her car on the wrong side of the pump…
  • Interesting news from the world of Google. Google Operating System relayed a report from PDFzone (via Mashable) that says that Google’s Larry Page would have preferred to have alternative PDF reader Foxit Reader in the Google Pack. I know that I switched to it from Adobe and I love it, even if the free version doesn’t work in Firefox
  • Mark at MeAndMyDrum asks if we should be making concessions for immigrants who don’t speak English.
  • Ronald from the Reader Appreciaion Project mentions some Design Decisions that Annoy Readers, including the advertising popups. If there’s something that annoys you, join in the discussion šŸ™‚
  • Thiru from How to Live Online has 5 Tricks for success with StumbleUpon. If you’re not stumbling, why aren’t you? It’s a fun way to see pages you normally wouldn’t šŸ˜‰
  • Anthony from BloggingDosh found a great idea to make your goals – set up a points system
  • Darren at the Digital Photography School has some Tips for a great Photowalk
  • Want to do your own TW3, or weekly wrap up? Snoskred how-to for putting one together

New Blogs I’m reading in Google Reader

New blogs this week in the US Blogs community at BumpZEE –

This week around the blog, I’ve been a really bad commenter – only 87 visitors to the blog this week, with Thursday being the busiest day. I promise that I’ll get out and comment on more blogs this week, I know why it’s good and all that, I just need to make the time to focus on it every day, not just one or two days a week. šŸ˜‰ However, my Alexa ranking has gone up from 1.5 million to 1,290,008 – I’m bound to break into six digits soon! šŸ˜‰

This week’s posts included an excellent How-to on integrating your blogger feed with Feedblitz, which has helped a few people already. I also don’t get freaked about some spiders (just a note – the spider is still in the same spot). Plus, I questioned why people go to the other side of the road when you’re walking around, and the changes at my local grocery store.

Coming up this week, I’ll finally post that movie review I’ve been promising for like forever now; I’ll also have another how-to post, along with the Hump Day Hmm, for which the topic hasn’t been announced just yet. Aside from that, check in to make sure you aren’t missing anything, or you can Subscribe to my RSS feed. Always remember, too, that comments are open and I do reply to them, so if you have something to say, say it. šŸ™‚
