Thanks a lot for finding such addictive games, +Sallie Alys Montuori.

I have yet to finish the hex one yet.

Good tips to revive your WordPress website

Do you have a website built with WordPress? Here are some nice recommendations on how to breathe life into it again.

#wordpress   #maintenance   #testing   #updates   #recommended  
Putting up a WordPress site is almost a rite of passage for small businesses looking to build a digital presence quickly and inexpensively.  But maintaining it can be trickier than you might expect if you're not a developer and can eat up hours of time you would rather invest in [...]

Happy Birthday, +John Hargrave, you're one of the silliest guys I know!

+Meg L mentioned it would be nice to have "International Silliness Day" (rather than April Fool's) and I'm all for it! The world needs lots of silliness, for sure. (Thanks for sharing this post, Meg!)

Have a fun day, everyone!

This has got to be my favorite art prank of the decade.

PNG, GIF or JPG?

This article has good information on image format choices for use in email.

I'm honestly surprised that animated gif is even in the mix!

Clients, colleagues and friends may appreciate this linked article that +Gideon Rosenblatt has written.

It gives me an opportunity to pause and think of what level of involvement I give to the organizations that are important to me - and also helps me to understand friends who are more involved than I am in organizations that are important to them.

Bridging Online and Real-World Engagement

Back when I used to run a mission-driven engagement consulting shop, I developed a framework to help our clients more effectively engage their constituents. Our clients were mostly nonprofit organizations, though I now see that the model could be useful for a much broader range of mission-driven business and social enterprises. 

One of the key goals for this framework was to bridge technology assisted, online communications aimed at increasing reach with the more personal and face-to-face kinds of engagement that most often result in real world impact. 

For this reason, this framework isn't based on transactional thinking. It comes more out of a community organizing model, where the upper levels are more about developing people and their ownership and leadership of the mission. My work on this model helped me eventually to see the importance of pushing power, pushing value creation and many other critical organizational functions outside the traditional boundaries of the organization. 

This is the first time I've shared this work publicly since setting aside that work on engagement consulting several years ago. I've intentionally not modified the core ideas from the original model, as I fear that digging back into this again might become a very large project. I share it here, in the hopes that it will be of use to people thinking about engagement and the connection to real-world impact.

I don't think your one word dismissal really does justice to the heated debates that arise between parts of the tech community over this issue. Wars have been fought with less vigour.

Check out this really nice and fully CSS (no images) loading spinner that +Pouya Saadeghi created.

(The broken image preview in this post doesn't give it justice. Give it a quick look - it's worth it.)

Nice clean work! Thanks for sharing, Pouya!

Here's another interesting article from Litmus.com on Gmail's "Promotions" tab. It's going to look more like Pinterest.

Nice idea - and a good opportunity for businesses to get a better first impression from their recipients than just the "from" and "subject" text.

I am looking forward to seeing this in my own inbox, but for now it's in beta testing and I am not a part of that group.

Introduction
NOTE: My "WordPress Tips" was on hold for a bit but is starting up again (slowly).

If you use WordPress for your website and would like to receive WordPress Tips to help you grow, learn and gain new ideas for the evolution of your site, drop me a line here in Google+ so I can put you in that exclusive sharing circle for occasional notifications. (Once a month - or less.) If you prefer not to receive notification, please let me know & I'll remove you from that circle. No judgement! Even if you're not in that circle, you may still see my WordPress related posts as I've decided to post them publicly from now on. (Thanks to a recommendation from +Terrence Lui.)

I help empower individuals and small businesses to take command of their web presence by employing a content management system* for client's websites which makes updating and maintaining their sites easy. 

I also enjoy teaching clients so they are comfortable making updates themselves.



* I use WordPress, an open source software and install it onto your own hosting account. (Not WordPress.com)

My husband and I have been going here for a number of years (7-8 years?) now and enjoy the food at Ming Bao. We have recently been enjoying the ability to try different combinations that aren't even on the menu. They're pleasant and very receptive to our crazy requests and always seem to do a very good job.

A nice quiet (small) place to meet friends & get tasty food. Pleasant and relatively quick service. Their sign out front was down when I first went here so it was hard to find. If you're not familiar with where they are, you may want to find it on Google maps and get a visual on the outside of the building. *Bonus:* I see they have the inside photographed on Google maps, so you can see what the place looks like on the inside as well before you go.

The "Please wait to be served" sign was off to the side, unseen by us when we entered, so we went to find a table and were scolded to wait to be seated. We walked back to the front door and they showed us to a small table that abutted the back of a booth which was fine until a party of 3 sat down and the back of a man's head was in my husband's face. Thankfully we could move to the next small table over, but between that, the static/tinny radio playing loudly from the speakers above, our breakfast sandwiches couldn't come soon enough. We waited for about 25 minutes to get the sandwiches. *They tasted good but not worth the wait or the loud surroundings.* I guess it would be OK if you have kids and you're used to having to be around loud kids and loud radio, but it wasn't for me. I won't be back. I tried this twice and both times were not enjoyable.
