Checking Out The Nokia WordPress App

I’ve used Nokia’s Symbian-powered smartphones for years and one thing I always wished for was a proper blogging app. There were a few here and there that tried to offer a proper blogging experience, but they always seemed to be missing something. Fortunately, about 2 years ago, a team of folks decided to get seriousContinue reading “Checking Out The Nokia WordPress App”

Day 6: A Retreat

Six days in and I’ve already broken, sort of. While I’m still doing quite well at keeping my personal Internet use limited to my Nexus One, I’ve come across a few instances that simply must be done from my computer. 1. Organizing Flickr photos – while the Flickr Mobile site is refreshingly awesome, it’s stillContinue reading “Day 6: A Retreat”

A Return To Mobile Blogging

A long while ago, I was really obsessed with mobile blogging – that is, blogging from a mobile device. I kept trying from my Symbian-powered smartphones, but kept coming up short. Unfortunately, software was the main limiting factor. There simply are not any great solutions for blogging from a Symbian-powered smartphone, in my experience. Yes,Continue reading “A Return To Mobile Blogging”

Back To Blogging Basics – Comments

The next step to getting back to blogging basics, for Symbian-Guru.com, was to eliminate the forum bridge that allowed us to use vBulletin as our comment engine.

Unfortunately, along the way, the site itself hasContinue reading “Back To Blogging Basics – Intro”

Partially Successfully Moved To A New Hosting Account

If you’re seeing this message, it means that I’m 1/3 of the way successful in moving my Symbian-Guru.com and RickyCadden.com sites from a Shared Hosting account at GoDaddy to their new WordPress Hosting account. It’s been a long, jacked up road, but the move should allow Symbian-Guru.com more room to grow with less headache onContinue reading “Partially Successfully Moved To A New Hosting Account”

One of my favorite sites for keeping up with things on the mobile web is WapReview.com, written by Dennis Bournique. This guy has a knack for finding cool mobile-friendly websites and services, and is always in the know. Today, Dennis brought news of a new WordPress plugin from DotMobi. I’m currently using Alex King’s WP-MobileContinue reading “DotMobi’s Got A New WordPress Mobile Plugin”

Notes From Geek To Peak At SXSWi

One of the better panels that I attended at SXSWi was called ‘Geek to Peak’, and centered around increasing and building my business as a consultant or freelancer. I found it really interesting, and ended up with a ton of notes. One thing that I’m currently working on is moving from saying ‘I am theContinue reading “Notes From Geek To Peak At SXSWi”
