Posted by activemind on April 28, 2006

I just realised that I did not have any trackbacks enabled in my blog at all. So I googled and found this very good tutorial on trackbacks and wordpress blogs. Head over to here if you want to learn more about trackbacks.

Runner’s Carnival

Posted by activemind on April 24, 2006

I am a regular reader of Blog Carnivals on various topics at Blog Carnival. In case you dont know what a carnival is read here. Today I was there and searched for running carnival and was surprised to see that there was nothing listed. So I am going to take a stab at it. Please go ahead and email me any articles you think would be interesting to runners.
I have added a link to the right under running section to my upcoming running carnival.

Time to check: Are you using the right blogging tool?

Time to check: Are you using the right blogging tool?
Have you ever wondered what is the easiest way to start your own Blog or have been bogged down by the choices and the various websites. Above is a nice article which actually taught me about wordpress (believe me I DID NOT know about wordpress before I read this article). I am happy I found it else I would still be using yahoo 360 or blogger or msn spaces which are no where near in features and ease to the combination that I am using now. Read my other posts to figure out what did the trick for me.

Posted by activemind on February 9, 2006

While surfing I came across this new blogging extension called deepestsender. Although I like performancing extension and am really getting comfortable using it but trying something new would not hurt 🙂

Getting more and more comfortable

Posted by activemind on February 9, 2006

Well after hunting for a perfect (at least for me) way to Blog I think I am coming close to what I was looking for. The combination that seems to be working for me is wordpress and firefox with performancing extension. I think this is as easy as it gets. Although I dont like the style so much and wish I could change it to have more control but that is something that I need to explore. I tried Yahoo 360, MSN Spaces and Blogger and I feel that it was just too much work to blog a simple article and have to be *really* in the mood to blog and open a window for it. Not like performancing along with JustBlogIt extension where I can just blog alogwith doing what I am actually doing.
Anyways I am a happy camper for now…The downside of having a blog at wordpress is that now I have to communicate this new address.
