I’ve moved AGAIN

Posted by Luminus on July 13, 2006

Howdy Y’all,
I’ve moved my blog again. I finally forked out the cash for my own domain and hosting and I’ve setup a spanking new WordPress Install. I picked a few good themes and a whole boat load of plugins and it’s looking pretty good.

I’ve copied all the posts on this blog over to the new one, all that’s left is to move my links and blog roll and get back on track with my bloggin.

I toyed briefly with the idea of installing WordPress MU, which is what powers this blog, ‘cos I’ll be running two blogs, but I gave it up seeing as there isn’t a 1.0 stable release yet and the guys warned that it breaks a lot. My PHP skills are a little rusty and I don’t think I want to be trying to fix bugs on my own every few days.

I found a really cool plugin called Multiply that enables me run two blogs with just the one installation. So now I’ve got my main blog here and I’ve moved the Jobs in Nigeria blog here. Hopefully I won’t have any crazy ideas to run more blogs otherwise I’m gonna have no choice to get MU installed.

Well, everything is honky-dory and the best thing that’s happened today is that my weekly Maintenance meeting which is scheduled for Thursdays is cancelled, Yippeeeeeeee. I get to go home early today.

Ok, ok, ok, I’ll shut up now. Y’all be good and I hope to hear from y’all soon.

P.S. If you don’t have a gravatar, now would be a good time to get one, ‘cos both my new blogs have gravatars enabled for commenters and they look so cool. You’ll have yourself to blame if you comment and no neat picture shows up.

I’ve still gotta figure out how to make a default image show if you don’t have a gravatar instead of the rubbish that presently displays.

If my blogs look funny in Internet Explorer, don’t complain, you know better than to use that thing. You can always head over and Get Firefox or some other decent browser.

Jeez, I’mlong winded today eh!!!

Anyway, Adios Muchachos.

Patsi Krakoff Blog Boost

Posted by Luminus on March 31, 2006

I am a member of the LinkedInBloggers yahoo group located at and each week we are focusing on promoting a random member's blog.

The LinkedInBloggers Yahoo! Group is a place for LinkedIn members that run blogs to hang out and share information concerning blogs and blogging.

Basically what should happen is that the blog of the week will see a surge of traffic as a result of all the extra press they're getting as a result of being "boosted".

Interestingly, this blog was the Second blog to be boosted and I never got around to doing a post about it. I want to thank Dennis D. McDonald, Dave Taylor, Des Walsh and Robyn Tippins, the moderators of the group for such a fine concept and all the hard work that they put into it. I'd also like to thank all the other bloggers that participated in the blog boost, they're the reason I got so many visits.

My Blog Boost experience was a blast, I had traffic coming from all parts of the world on account of the alredy established Bloggers that linked to my blog. I am indeed grateful.

Dr. Patsi Krakoff

Enough about that though, this week's blog is The CoachEzines Blog, authored by Patsi Krakoff, that's Dr. Patsi to you (just kidding). She's a a coach & psychologist with a specialty in writing articles, newsletters, blogs and ezines for professional coaches and consultants.

The target audience for her blog consists of coaches, consultants, authors, speakers, and other professionals who need a newsletter or ezine to stay in touch with clients. It has somewhat expanded to include other topics such as blogs, and writing web copy.

She's got lot's of useful information there so why don't you pop over and see for yourself.
