This was the Week that Was, Vol. 17

It’s been a big week around here, topped off with the big move to WordPress. Without further ado, here is the weekly roundup, now with proper trackbacks! 😉

I’ve cut out the new blogs and stumbles section as I haven’t added any blogs to my reader and I’ve been busy with moving to WP so I didn’t do much stumbling.

Posts I liked –

In the spotlight again is Google and their actions toward paid links. This week there are a couple of posts –

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

This week around the blog, the transition to WordPress was made successfully. The only glitch was that the “Did You Pass Math?” plugin didn’t work, so people who knew they passed math were being told otherwise.

Keywords –
edit robots.txt in blogspot – You can’t, which really stinks. Switch to a self-hosted WordPress blog if you’re serious about it.
wls it’s a beautiful day ferris – Interesting. I don’t remember hearing 890 on the movie, but it has been a while since I’ve watched it.
australian idol crohn’s – Uh, ok. I’m not sure why you’d search for just that. Does one of the finalists have Chron’s?
gateway 507gr system printing error – Hmm…why would that happen. Maybe you should do a restore…
google analytics picks up all visitors – It probably doesn’t (and I know it’s not picking up my visitors now because I haven’t brought it over here yet).
penalty paid links google – I have a suggestion of a site to report – ESPN. They have paid links on their site. However, I really like the idea of reporting sites with just Google Adsense on them…
diagram huntsman spider – Why would you want to do that? I’ve seen a picture of a huntsman – no thanks. 😉
do you leave the skin on for zucchini bread? – You can, it’s optional.
bernadette transvestite – The only thing that I could possibly think of is that you’re looking for The Adventures of Priscilla Queen of the Desert. Why not look for some nice Swedish blonds?

I also blogged about a slight hint I got about some baked goods to make; three suites and NaBloPoMo and having the second most popular group there.

In the Tuesday Think Tank, we looked at time management. I showed how you can use Google Calendar to organize your life, and Snoskred gave some great advice for Time management.

Coming up, we’re going to close up a couple of loose ends with Blogger, including how to get your blog set up on your own domain. Later on this week, I’m going to talk about sabotage and the laws of searching. Be sure to check back in, or, re-subscribe to my feed using the link at the upper right.

‘Til next week! 😉

  1. Thanks for the linky-love! I’ve tabbed open a few interesting links to read – I love round-ups, they’re great! 🙂
    And welcome to wordpress 🙂

  2. Thanks for including the link to Do You Love Your Blog?, I really appreciate it! 😀 Now I’ve got to get busy and read these other great articles.

  3. Welcome to WP! That’s great your move was successful, and I hope it didn’t cause much stress.

    Thanks Sephy, for the mention of my Unilever post. Much appreciated.

  4. Mark – Of course! Though I kinda forgot to describe what it was all about… :blush:

    Pearl – You’re welcome; you do a lot of great work 🙂

    Katie – I know you do 😉 and thanks for the welcome! 🙂

    Tay – You’re welcome, it’s a question I think that any serious blogger should ask themselves; I have to admit that I’ve fallen in love with my blog now that I’ve gone to WP 😀

    David – About the only stress that I’ve had is from the Did you Pass Math? plugin; other than that, it all went smoothly; I even had all of my old Blogger posts imported and everything ready to go within about an hour of getting the keys. I really like checking out the ads from other parts of the world, and India is one place that you don’t see many commercials posted from (at least in English; I’ve seen a few in Hindi though).

    Thanks y’all! 🙂
