If you are looking to use your iPad as a blogging tool, WordPress is a likely starting point. After all, it's one of--if not the--most popular blog platform in the world. And the app is free. It's very easy to use, but in large part because it's very limited. In this brief tutorial, I will show you how to use WordPress on the iPad.
If you and your significant other have agreed to leave behind your respective laptops to avoid the temptation of keeping up with work while on vacation, there's still the chance that an iPad could find its way into your travel bag.

But let's say you'd like to update your blog a few times while on vacation, in order to … Read more

WordPress is a widely used blogging application that is available either as a service from WordPress.com or as an application you install and host, using your own hosting provider.

The Apple iPad 2 hits store shelves at 5 p.m. local time today all over the country, and the second-generation tablet is already generating a lot of buzz with a few eager customers lining up outside some Apple stores at least a day in advance.
Unlike notable Apple product launches of the past, this time, the company didn't offer an extended preorder period. And it wasn't allowing customers to reserve devices weeks in advance of the sale. Instead, the company only began taking orders for the iPad 2 starting at 1 a.m. PT with orders expected … Read more
The ubiquitous and controversial Demand Media has acquired CoverItLive, a live-blogging tool that lots of publishers--including CNET--use for hosting live chat events and covering news in real time.
Demand Media, which grew extraordinarily fast and recently went public, is best known as a freelancer clearinghouse for the production of search-engine-friendly content on sites like eHow (how-to tutorials) and Livestrong.com (health advice). The company has been hit with allegations that the majority of its content is cheap, low-quality, and pollutes search results--that is, that it's a "content farm"--something it understandably denies.
CoverItLive, typically used to quickly … Read more

Users of MyBlogLog, a start-up that Yahoo acquired in 2007 for about $10 million, received an e-mail early today announcing the service's demise.
The announcement is not exactly a surprise. MyBlogLog was one of the Yahoo services listed on a leaked presentation screenshot from December as a property that would likely be sold or shut down as the troubled Yahoo cuts costs.
Ahead of its time in a sense, MyBlogLog built widgets that site owners could install to show which MyBlogLog members read their blogs--the same philosophy that now powers, for example, widgets displaying Facebook members who have "… Read more
It seems only yesterday that a group of sensitive schoolchildren decided to use Facebook to organize an "Attack A Teacher Day."
Well, what kids do on Facebook, adults, being far more sophisticated, do on a blog.
I am grateful to the Bucks County Courier Times which assailed me with the story of a now-suspended teacher who, it seems, wasn't entirely happy about her work life.
