Lesson with RSS feeds & WordPress

2010-08-04 Wed 09:07

In a world of (RSS & Atom) feeds, deleting your posts is not the way to do it.

First re-post using no content and give the post some time for it to be caught by the feed aggregators. Then, delete your post.

Update: This post also has similar advice.

org2blog annoyance

2010-08-03 Tue 03:14

I hate it when I’m trying out things with org2blog – fixing bugs or adding features – and my testing buffer gets posted. Why do I keep passing the prefix argument with C-u? I should probably work with a local instance of WordPress.

Update Script

Well, this isn’t an update of how I’m doing on my sabbatical. Its just been 3 days and I’m doing pretty fine.
I just finished writing a script to keep my blogs page in sync with my google-reader (well not exactly). The script parses an xml export of my google-reader-subscriptions and updates the edits the html of my unnought-blogs page. period.

There are a couple of things I don’t like about this script.
Firstly, I don’t want to keep exporting my google-reader-subscription each time I make changes. The script should be able to directly sync with my google-reader without me having to export the file. [I have read about the atom subscriptions feed of Google Reader, but haven’t been able to get it right.] Hopefully, I’ll be able to do it in the near future.
Secondly, The blog author’s name is non-existent. I can’t do anything about this though.

Also, In the process, I had the chance to look a geeky ad. I found it at the weirdest of places!

A Second Blog…

It can’t really be called a Second Blog… because I won’t be posting any new stuff there…

I just started it to have a WordPress experience…
I started it to know.. to compare… and to choose…
I started it just for fun…
I started it because Blogspot may soon be blocked on campus!!!
