The Geeky Sunday

Just a few hours ago, two blogging friends of mine dropped by at my house for an afternoon of adventure to the darkest and tempest midst of WordPress and SEO. Charles, who was the mastermind of this mini-meet, has asked help to tweak around his themes on some of his sites, while Patrik, a true blue atenean, accompanied us along.

We had all much in common, and had a couple of interesting topics to discuss (anu ba talaga, nonsense or interesting? hehe) including the issue of Conrad Miguel’s Infamous Feedburner Subscriber Count (which someone has said to be true daw kunuhay!), which isn’t 133K at the moment, but just small 133 subscribers.

Next we moved on, differentiating WordPress from Blogspot (I really hate blogspot) and WordPress.Com from WordPress.Org since a couple of casual missunderstandings came up, like for example. Why adsense isn’t allowed on WordPress, wherein Patrik refered to WordPress in general, while we all good know that only WordPress.Com is the culprit that doesn’t allow own advertisments or any JavaScript at all.
