Links á la Mode:Tech Weekly Roundup, May 17th


My “Blogger to WordPress” tutorials were first published on this blog last November.  Quite a few people have contacted me since then and shared how helpful they were to them when they decided to switch platforms. I am thrilled that they have made the move easier for some and hope that they will continue to help others in the future.  As such, I have made it a priority to keep them updated.

In light of the recent problems many experienced when Blogger went down, I decided to submit the tutorial to the Tech Roundup and they published it!  I’m delighted to be included once again. Read on for all of this week’s picks.

Mobile Mavens: Making Savvy and Stylish Choices to Improve Our Blogs

Edited by Maggie Battles

Trends and technology move at a rapid speed these days and along with that comes unlimited choices. We can choose from a variety of blogging platforms, we can shoot from any number of cameras and shop from any number of online boutiques. There’s so many styles and options to choose from in fashion and technology that we’re constantly evolving our taste to match each moment in time. This weeks Links has a collection of examples on how to take your blog to the next level. The following are a group of links with helpful advice on everything from how to work with PR people, to switching to a new blogging platform and to navigating user-generated fashion on the web. I trust that many of these links will prove to be very useful to all of you. Happy posting!


If you would like to submit your link for next week’s Links à la Mode, please register first, then post your links. Deadline is Sunday, May 22nd — get posting here and grab the code for your blogs here.

    Congratulations on being included on the list! I have bookmarked and read those posts again and again. I’ve purchased my domain name, but I am taking this slowly. On another note, thanks so much for your comments on my post today. It meant a lot coming from you since you were the original author of the post that inspired our FBFF today. I don’t know of any other way to look at this week’s topic except as lists of helpful ideas. How often do you get to know what others are really thinking? I’m looking forward to reading all the blog pet peeves and then making appropriate changes. By the way, you have my favorite commenting system.

    Yay! Congratulations for being in LALM 🙂

    I read your blogger to wordpress tutorials and they are fantastic. If I ever decide to switch, your tutorials will be the first place I go for guidance!

    I’m convinced it’s the most comprehensive guide – I’ve lost count of how many people I’ve directed to it when they ask me about moving to Wordpress. Congrats on the inclusion; hey, you made both LALM lists this week, didn’t you? Ha! Awesome.
