BloggingPro Vacation: Speak Your Mind

I am heading for a vacation for the last two weeks of August, my first one in a year, and while I am gone, I would love BloggingPro to continue, and so I figured that stealing a page from someone great by asking my readers to help keep content going would be a good idea.

So if you have an opinion on a piece of blogging software (WordPress, Movable Type, TextPattern, or anything else), are doing something great with WordPress that you want the world to know(Plugin, Theme, Extension), or have an article you were thinking of writing that would be great for BloggingPro, please send it in with your contact details, and you might be featured on BloggingPro.

Contact me at [email protected]. Submissions start from today, until the end of the month, as I will be back to work September 1st.

    Sheesh, rotten luck…well, hope you’re having good time…I am not going on vacation, I am going stark raving bonkers…and for cold comfort: I seem to be the only one. But I’ll post anyway.

    It started with a blog…I got one, posted daily, got PR from long content, figured out how to add AdSense, it went okay. But during nitely ‘learning’ trips: decided to
    -get my own domain
    -get my own website
    While surfing I found THE most beautiful template I’ve ever seen –unfortunately. It was available ONLY on WordPress. So: got domain I wanted, found a host that was connected to WordPress. Kewl! I thought. Now: I’m stuck in website HELL.
    English IS my FIRST/only language, however: I do not have Clue One HOW to do any –with the website (beyond writing content) or with the blog.
    I read the FORUM rules, so I’m not about to ask a ? there…. For Weeks: I read the Codex, Forums, blah blah blah. I don’t understand any of it. I asked the host techs: they won’t help; they say click on *Help –but “help” pages say ‘glad you chose us.’ I Googled: variations of ‘simple tutorial change template’–Zip. I don’t know difference betw “upload”
    “download” /where or what “php” files are–where they go, how to find…any of it.

    I’m literal; instructions Assume knowledge I don’t have…don’t know how to get –leaves out steps. Can’t figure out how to grab a template off the web; Zero idea how to change blog for the great one –or any of the others in THEME VIEWER…. How/where did everyone else learn this?
    Ah, well prolly talking only to myself. I give up. It will be like petting a kitten backwards, but I’ll live with website basic ugly template and very boring ugly standard issue FIXED template…sales should be great. Ya, right.

    Hey all, I already have one great submission. I am looking for many more, so this is your chance to have your say on a site read by thousands.

    Hey J. hopefully you can pick up the slack on the tech sites. :) Thanks though.

    Poppy man… I know what you mean. can take a bit of getting used to, but you know there is also It is a hosted service that is very easy to use and friendly. You should try out an account on there…see if you like it, and in a month or two switch over when they support hosted domains. (allowing you to use their service, but with your domain..instead of being

    ~David: Thanks for reply. Sorry I didn’t make clear: I GOT a blog –after seeing the template I wanted, so I COULD learn how to use, but it isn’t working. WP.ORG is totally different and can’t figure out how to up/down -load.

    ~J. Angelo: Thanks for reply. Thanks for the offer! Can you explain: HOW to download(?) the template?
    -I click on template
    -get a window that says ‘download’ /when it finishes I get
    -window: ‘files may be downloaded from C\Temp’
    –but I can NEVER find it….
    And: if I click on “ZIP” file nothing happens.
    -“TARG” file choice instead of “ZIP”: also nothing happens.
    No matter how many times I’ve read WordPress
    “CODEX”: can’t figure it out.

    So far I’ve wasted many weeks. I have lots of questions, no answers. WHY do “techs” ASSUME knowledge average users DON’T have? What is wrong with them?

    I do not create a comment, however after looking at
    a few of the responses hwre BloggingPro Vacation:
    Spewk Your Mind | BloggingProBloggingPro. I do have a few questions for
    you if you don’t mind. Is it only me or does it look like like some of the remarks come
    across like they are written by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are writing on other sites, I would
    like to keep up with you. Could you post a list of every one of all your shared pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    Boil 1-2 glass of water containing half tablespoon molasses
    (gud) and one tablespoon saunf, and boil it down to half.
    My thoughts of the product is that it helped me to not be hungry
    during the nighttime hours, when my hunger hormones are most active.
    Garcinia cambogia is which may end up in weight loss
    actually without diet and exercise.
