1000 comments

Not too shabby. And quite a milestone (you can always see the exact current number on my about page). Think of it as 1000 posts on a forum, only better. A big thank you to everyone who has ever left a comment here on my blog, I always look forward to what you lot have to say in reply to my random writings, it’s what makes blogging fun for me and it’s the main reason I still try and update it as best as I can despite being ridiculously busy at the moment.
Me love you long time.

Fishies!

Catchy songs

Flashdance
Remember 1983? I was reminded of Michael Sembello’s Maniac today, which I think is still as catchy as it was back then.

Automattic acquires Gravatar

Maybe Matt got tired of waiting for gravatars to start working properly again. Too funny, but Automattic (company by Matt of WordPress) acquired Gravatar and so now the whole load is working fast, and working period. So if you’ve had issues in the past months getting a lovely gravatar to show up; try again.
Bloody brilliant.

Dofollow

Once upon a time, blogs started getting flooded with spam comments. This was done because in the comment a link would refer back to the spammers site. This is a backlink. The more backlinks you have to your site the higher your pagerank on Google becomes. This is a good thing. Spamming is a bad thing. It got so bad that search engines started checking for a ‘nofollow’ tag that would mean that comments wouldn’t count as backlinks. This was done to stop the spammers, but it was useless. Fast forward to late 2007 and everyone uses anti-spam like Akismet to protect their comments, but software like WordPress still places a nofollow tag on comments. This is bad because valid backlinks from you lovely people who post real comments don’t get counted either.
Enter the dofollow plugin which I have now added and activated.
So as of now all your new (and old) comments have the nofollow removed and thus give you proper linklove the way the internet was supposed to work.

Share the love, leave a comment.
