Fueled Up

Finally took the time to backup my site and databases and upgraded to the newest WordPress and Jetpack versions. Why do I bore you with that? Because you do benefit, too!

  • Jetpack Comments. Instead of having to log in to some kind of blog account, you may now post comments on my site using Twitter or Facebook.
  • Subscriptions. If you’re afraid of missing new posts, and you’re not that social-network-kind-of-guy-or-girl, you can now subscribe to my blog or single posts via email.
  • Sharing. New small buttons at the bottom of each post allow you to easily share any content you really like with just one click.
  • Mobile Theme. The site has been optimized for mobile devices, including a new menu that makes it far easier to navigate the blog on your iPhone, Android or Windows phone.
  • Twitter Sidebar. If you’re not using Twitter but would like to hear about the small things I got to say anyway, you can just check out the new Twitter sidebar to the right now.

Awesome, isn’t it? 🙂

However, there’s still one new feature that I’ve shied away from a little: Infinite Scroll. This plugin would automatically pull the next set of posts into view when the you approach the bottom of the page, just like you already know from sites like Google Image Search, Facebook or Twitter. What do you think about that? Tell me!

  1. “Finally took the time to […] upgraded to the newest WordPress” – uuh, that’s something you shouldn’t wait a single day with. There are just too many exploits + WP-installation directories out there. Give me a buzz for details 🙂

    Personally I don’t like infinite scrolling a lot. And I’m not alone with that: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=5017995
    So I like it the way it is (uh-oh, I’m getting old ;-))

    But so far: awesome 🙂
