Hosting on a shared server and worry about the stability and security of blog files, as well as the bandwidth? There are lots of great services out there you can get your hands on. On ThemeFortress, I use Flickr but it somehow become redundant to upload, tag and do all kinds of stuffs before actually insert the images. Then here comes my favorite cloud service Dropbox. At this point, you can use similar services like SugarSync to achieve the same purpose.
You know Box.net has just changed their official name to Box and brought users some nice upgrades like the 50 GB extra free storage. But Box is never an alternative to our favorite service like Dropbox (iCloud? Are you kidding?). If you recall that Box actually sent users survey a while ago and I still remember one of the questions asking what’s the most-wanted feature. Of course, like the rest of us, I chose the Dropbox style sync (forget the exact name). But I guess most people know, even the Box team, that it is definitely the most wanted feature.
I’ve talked about how to set up a new WordPress blog, a simple five things to check before you proceed. In the post, I’ve discussed about how to organize your WordPress blog content, ie, how to use the category and tag to reasonably structure the site, in a way that is suitable for your niche and later scaling. And in fact, there are lots of interesting articles talk about the similar concept. Using category only to manage all your content sometimes is good and provides a clear way for your readers to understand the structure more easily.
If you search for the same titles on Google, you will have loads of similar topics. They are either outdated, or are basically talking about the same things (no offense), so, I would like to make it a bit different. After installing WordPress, go directly into the back-end and navigate to the Setting page. Make sure whether you want to keep “www” for your domain, whether to enable user registration, the date formats, reader comments. Basically you can find all the on-and-off switch of your WordPress functions.
