I Am Adding 2 New Categories to My Blog

I have decided to add 2 new blog categories for postings to my site, namely Daily Life and Blogging. I get asked now and then, how I do this and that and as I am feeling the urge to write these days…. so off we go.

The “we” is not the “Royal We” but the “Me, Myself and I” “We”. Let’s see where this experiment goes..

Daily life and Blogging are twp new categories on my blog.

Blogging will be about the software, scripts, plugins, design tools, hosting services and so on that I use to create blogs, websites and books, as well helping to keep my blogging on track.

Daily Life is focused on the tools and experiences that are part of my daily life. As a TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) Survivor I have had to ways and means to help myself get on with my daily life particularly when my mind decides to wander off on adventures of its own without consulting me. Sort like me as kid. 🙂

I am not sure how often I will post. I gave up years ago trying to do things on schedule as my mind rarely cooperates past a few weeks or is missing in action.

WP Stats Dashboard is a very useful plugin

I have just recently added the WP Stats Dashboard plugin to my blogs. For me this a very useful plugin.

From the WordPress site the following has been written:

Display your blog’s stats graph plus your blog traffic, social engagement and social influence directly in your dashboard. See how you’re ranking on Alexa, check out your Technorati authority, monitor your ranking across multiple sites and much more. Once you install this plugin you’ll wonder how you ever managed to track your social media worth without it.

Notable features:

Lots of stats dashboard widgets
Tracking 50+ social metrics
Trending social metrics over time.
Autopost to Amplify and Posterous.
Sidebar widgets: social metrics, social profiles, total views, graph views per day
Profile finder.
Export Social Trends to excel.
iGoogle gadget.
Iphone App Available

My blogs and WordPress 3.0 MultiSite

Ok, I’ve just about completed the move of my various blogs over to tydbytes.com thanks to the multi site feature of WordPress 3.0. WordPress 3.0 allows you to host multiple blogs on one installation with one central control panel and this enables you to manage all aspects of each blog such as plugin updates and WordPress updates from one location.

Having this setup will make my life easier and hopefully I will be able to develop a regular posting schedule. In the past there seemed to be so much technical stuff to stay on top of that by the time I got through that there was no time left to do any writing.
