30-Day Blogging Challenge: okay, I’m in

I’ve given myself all sorts of excuses for not blogging more often. My favourite excuse is that I don’t have a mobile device good enough for me to use and blog in a mobile manner. I had a netbook three years ago, which made blogging a little bit easier on […]

My singing skills with Red Karaoke

My better half downloaded Red Karaoke on his Samsung Galaxy Note phone, so I decided to give it a try. I’ve never tried an online karaoke app before, so I think it’s pretty cool. Using my hubby’s login account, have a listen to me singing Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” […]

I’m so bored of my blog theme…

I’m thinking of getting/making a Twenty Eleven child theme, if I have the time. A combination of Silver’s design and Hum’s layout, plus a bit of colour tweaks here and there, and it would be perfect. I tried doing a child theme before, but it was just too tedious. I […]

Don’t Google yourself: you may not like what you find

I’m guilty of doing vanity searches of myself on occasion, purely out of curiosity. So far none of the results returned anything dramatic. A few other people I personally know aren’t so fortunate. One person who’s close to me had a court order information in the top 3 results for […]

WordPress PostADay Challenge: are you game?

I know that the original challenge is intended for WordPress.com users, but, hey, it doesn’t hurt to join in the fun. I’ve done a 30-day blog challenge before, so I know how difficult it can be for some of us to keep up. It’s not so much because we’re out […]

On updating the Top Commentators widget & WordPress customized installation

This blog has been quiet, but it doesn’t mean that my life as a geek has been put on hold. Far from it, as you can guess from the title of this post. First off, I’ve scheduled a release of the latest version of the Top Commentators Widget sometime in […]

LornaTimbah.com is on Tumblr

After almost a year lying dormant, my namesake web site is finally revived. I guess. A few explanations on why I chose Tumblr instead of WordPress are as follows: Tumblr is perfect for microblogging, which is what I do most of the time. I’m more active on Twitter now than […]

Paid posts are out of my life

I’ve tried to quit paid postings for quite some time now. However, I realized that paid-to-posts are a blogger’s answer to quick money, and the temptation to fund my sudden shopping splurges get the best of me at times. So, I succumbed to several paid posts, which I would receive […]

@webgrrrl’s got new feature: Twitter Lists

Honestly, I have no idea what to do with Twitter Lists as of this moment, but it’s nice to see that the option is made available for me to use once I figure it out. A post in Marketing Pilgrim suggested that it could be treated like a blogroll, i.e. […]

Reminiscing the growth of WebGrrrl.net, and how would you describe your blog?

Have you ever looked back at your old blog posts and think, dang, I am good! Those were not the words I would use when I did exactly that these past couple of hours, but it’s close enough. It’s now a little past 4 years since the inception of WebGrrrl.net […]
