This was the Week that Was, Vol. 16

I’ve had a busy week working on my new WordPress blog; I’ll be moving over hopefully sometime this week. I still have some tweaking to do on it and some kinks to work out; however, I have a bit of a preview of the new look down below. It really looks stunning, I think. 😉

Posts I liked –

There certainly has been a theme of people getting slapped by Google for running ads on their sites. These next couple of links are a roundup of some of the latest posts:

New Blogs I’m reading in Google Reader:

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

Important! The address for the US Blogs button has changed. Read about the details here.. Also, I have updated the US Blogs blogroll, instructions for adding it to your site can be found here.

This week around the blog, I’ve been busy working on the WordPress layout that I’m moving to. I promised you a snapshot, and here it is. I should tell you that I do have some test posts on there; you won’t see those when I move though 😉

Keywords –
golf computer “shot navi” Hmm… it’s about time for the japanese golf to start showing on the tv again, maybe time for the shot navi again?
i need to sort things out – I think it’s something we all need to do, especially if we find ourselves in that rut all the time.
tel star lyrics – Telstar, Telstar. Interestingly, the song was mentioned on the radio on Thursday afternoon; the host made a great point – how many people my age even know what Telstar was for? I do, but I’m a geek 🙂
pagerank dropped – That seems to be happening quite a bit nowadays, but nobody is getting better pageranks. Come on google, get your act together!
outback steakhouse blimp purdue – It was over West Lafayette on Saturday night; Brent Musberger said so; it must be true! 😉
picture of grilled salmon and veggies – Shall we have another look at that? 🙂
free mom blogger templates – Whose mom is in jail? If it’s an issue for her to be in jail, I hope that she gets out soon; maybe your blog will help. Then again, I might have something confused here. 😉
text link ads google penalty – Yeah, It seems that Google are out for revenge on anyone using Text Link Ads. I’m dropping them when I switch to WordPress.
who is in control, of your blog domain? – If you’re with Blogger, then Google have control over it. If you go with your own hosting, then you do. Simple as that.

Lots of Keywords, I know, but it’s worth it 🙂

Over the week, I’ve posted about HTML Tips and Tricks for the Tuesday Think Tank, and Snos gave us Basic HTML for Bloggers. The Hump Day Hmm was about a challenge we’ve been facing, and I talked about Paging Mr. Negative – Don’t call soon. I also talked about one of my favorite radio programs, Lloyd Cole Knew My Father.

Coming up, I’ll be talking about Google Calendar in the Tuesday Think Tank, and on Friday I will talk about another of my favorite albums, this time a different take on some famous music. Of course, if all goes well, I’ll be making the big move and will have details about how to keep up with me then.

Also, if you’ve left a comment, I’ll be getting to them tomorrow, so be sure to check back for my reply.

‘Til Next week y’all… 🙂

  1. Katie – Thanks! It’s a lot more links than I usually have; in fact, only a couple of them were in there before Monday morning; I’ve been slack with reading my Google Reader over the week (shh!). 🙂

    Cugat – Thanks; I have to say that Snos has done a lot of work on figuring it all out, but as of now, everything works that I have on mine; I want to do a test import of my whole blog; I had done a bit of it last night, but I forgot to turn one thing off which would have buggered up all the posts over there..

    Thanks y’all! 😉
