Jetpack’s latest update is another improvement to plugin that has come a long way since launch.
You may have noticed that there is a new look around here. We are now running Valise. Nothing personal against Genesis, we liked it a lot, and would still recommend it. We have our fingers crossed that we have effectively replaced the semantic markup that Genesis provided. So here it goes. Valise came with a […]
This is possibly the best WordPress update ever. WordPress 3.8 (aka “Parker”) has a redesigned interface on the admin panel. Pretty much everything is where is used to be, but it is better executed and makes the old one really look old. Open Sans as a typeface really looks good. Nice and clean. The theme viewer […]

Jetpack has an alluring promise, Content Delivery Network via WordPress.com, fancy tiled images, social sharing options that includes commenting, and several other handy features. Here’s the problem: It’s slow. One of the slowest, if […]
Self-hosted WordPress.org install is way better than Blogger. There is no contest between the two sets of features. You can even listen to Matt Cutts just to be sure.
