Google Maps now comes with Bike routes- way cool!
I love Google maps and use them online and on my phone. I also live in one of those towns that probably won’t get the bike route thing for another 5 years. That’s fine, I know my way around the block.

Guess who is coming to SNL…
You go girl!
I recently switched this blog from Blogger to WordPress.
I loved Blogger but, WordPress allows you to do so much more.
The one thing that every WordPress user can agree upon is the beauty of plug-ins. They make coding so much easier!
Akismet checks your comments against the Akismet web service to see if they look like spam or not. You need a WordPress.com API key to use it. You can review the spam it catches under “Comments.” To show off your Akismet stats just put in your template. Spammers seem to love WordPress.
2. All in One SEO Pack
Out-of-the-box SEO for your WordPress blog.
3. Blogger Blogspot To WordPress Redirection- this is one of many related plug-ins that I used to convert my site over smoothly. A lot of people loose their ‘juice’ or rankings. I kept my old domain name just to hold on to as much ‘juice’ as possible while I ‘juice-up’ my new domain name.
Plugin to show a link to the last post from the commenters blog by parsing the feed at their given URL when they leave a comment. Rewards your readers and encourage more comments. This doesn’t always get along with Thesis hooks.
5. Follow Me
The Follow Me plugin is designed to allow users the ability to add links to their social media profiles in their blog. Blogger people can simply insert code into a widget.
6. Google Analyticator
7. Google XML Sitemaps
This plugin will generate a special XML sitemap which will help search engines like Google, Yahoo, Bing and Ask.com to better index your blog.
8. Publish To Facebook
Publishes posts, pages or both to your Facebook Mini-Feed directly from WordPress. The only thing I do not like about this is that it uses the same window to log you onto FB. I then have to log back into WP. There are work-arounds.
9. Recent Comments
Retrieves a list of the most recent comments. Easier to do actually with Blogger.
SexyBookmarks adds a (X)HTML compliant list of social bookmarking icons to each of your posts. See configuration panel for more settings. Cause I’m sexy? nah….cause these bookmarks are sexy with my site 🙂
11. TweetMeme Retweet Button
Adds a button which easily lets you retweet your blog posts. If you’re not blind, I’m sure you have seen these.
Ban users by IP, IP Range, host name, user agent and referer url from visiting your WordPress’s blog. It will display a custom ban message when the banned IP, IP range, host name, user agent or referer url tries to visit you blog. You can also exclude certain IPs from being banned. There will be statistics recordered on how many times they attemp to visit your blog. It allows wildcard matching too. Heeheeheeee– no more oxycontin or Viagra ads on my comments. Sucka!
13. Yet Another Related Posts Plugin
Loads a lot faster than Linkwithin or whatever it’s called.
There are a few other plug-ins that I enjoy as well. I’m becoming a Plug-in collector.
