My Popular WordPress Tags

December 29th, 2015 Popular tags based on revised taxonomy

I’ve spent entirely too much time the last two days working on this blog. First I decided to look into adding back the tag cloud to Muskblog as it is featured prominently on my CFA® Flashcard blog and I always thought when done well they look cool, the key of course is to carefully tag all your posts. So I spent much of the last two days editing and re-tagging hundreds of blog posts, the end result is the best WordPress taxonomy ever on Muskblog…

Tagging WordPress Posts

December 28th, 2015 WordPress Logo

Yesterday I got the bright idea to write a post about tag clouds, personally I think tag clouds are interesting and I was a bit sad I followed expert advice to de-emphasize mine on my blog.

I need a new News App

October 30th, 2015 No more Pulse app

So I live in China behind the Great Firewall which makes it difficult to get the latest news. I of course have a VPN but it doesn’t always work, but when it does I use Pulse as my main news source. I used to use Twitter more and I even used to use Summify before Twitter acquired them, but after it’s demise I became a Pulse user and then it too was acquired. I can’t get confirmation beyond the screenshot I took, but it appears the standalone Pulse app may be retired permanently…
