Wag the Real: 2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 24,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 9 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Welcome iPad Users

WordPress announced today that they have made all 18 million blogs hosted at WordPress.com compatible with the iPad using Onswipe.  That being said, I went ahead and implemented it on Wag the Real.


Reinventing the wheel

It’s funny how often system administrators/engineers inadvertently reinvent the wheel every day. I had my own moment of “duh” today when I discovered that WordPress fully supports Alex Gorbatchev’s SyntaxHighlighter which makes embedded code in your blog look really nice (IMHO). I had researched and found other tools to present code in my posts all of which are great, but did not look as clean as SyntaxHighlighter. You can read about this “feature” here.

The SyntaxHighlighter will work with WordPress-hosted and independent WordPress blogs (as a plug-in).

I’ve modified my posts that had code in them to use the SyntaxHighlighter.
