a blog about anything

Trying w.bloggar, how about it

Immediately, I see that w.bloggar does not have a quick way to enter Technorati tags which is very sweetly done in qumana.

In w.bloggar, there is File > New Post. When I setup w.bloggar it did ask for ‘account’. And I have the ability to select an account.

Let’s post this and see if my default author name shows up. Hmm… no, the author does not show up. What am I missing?!?


And a developer was fixing my wordpress categories, now his/her name is set as the author! lol.  Fixed – set back to my author name.

Using Qumana

I like using Qumana to post. I like not having to log into my website and use the fine WordPress interface.

Here are a few issues with Qumana version 2.0 build which may or may not have been addressed. I haven’t bothered to go search and see if there’s an answer, just want to jot this down.

  1. In Qumana, I’m able to Tab-tab from the field Title, Categories, Tags and the journal entry. However, I am unable to use Shift-Tab to go back ‘up’ to those previous fields. This is normal Windows behavior to be able to Tab and Shift-Tab back and forth between fields. What do you think?
  2. I’m using a WordPress blog. After posting in Qumana, I noticed that “Posted by” is blank and does not default to my set ‘author’. Perhaps this is something within WordPress? It would be very nice to default to a set ‘author’. Otherwise, I will have to go back and edit each post that I used with Qumana and re-add the author.
  3. I ‘Post’ an entry to the website. Done. Then I go and retreive the last 10 posts. I double-click on one of my previous posts to look at. Nice. Now, I want to go create a new post. I don’t want to edit a previous one. Where do I now go to create a new post? I’m thinking I want to clear out what is on my screen. Get rid of the post I’m currently reviewing. Get a clean screen. I’m expecting to go to File > Create New Post so I would get a fresh start. Hmmm. Nothing there. In the end, I quit Qumana and started again. Silly huh?

What I like:

  • Tags field. Enter some tags. Click Technorati button and voila, tag line.
  • I like the interface. Quick and easy to just jump right in and start typing a blog post.
  • It’s free (for now).

neat TV, Hellen Buttigieg, Hostess with the Mostess

Hellen Buttigieg, the hostess with the mostest for neat tv, is up for the 20th Annual Gemini Best Lifestyle Host Award. It’s a show about organizing, letting go of clutter, physically and emotionally, with big tips on how to do it. Hellen is the President of “We Organize U” and a Professional Organizer and Life Coach. Cool.
I saw a few shows and I jotted down some notes. It has helped me already. Thank you!
Often I have clutter in my head, clutter in my heart, and clutter in my closet and drawers, too! Getting rid of excess and the no-longer-needed is an important part of our western materialistic world. Don’t you find sometimes being overly attached to your material goods? It is definitely good to let go.
