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 …

Quick blogging with ScribeFire and DashBlog

Since my preferred browser has always been Firefox, I thought I’d give the ScribeFire add-on a try. I would have been posting away with joy if it were not for my lame-slow Internet connection which I have to bear for another week. Having the tool taking over half of my …
