Friday Five: Top Windows 7 Features

Yes, I’m rocking an iMac (and a MacBook Pro) these days, but that doesn’t mean I’m not a Windows fan (I think there’s a pun there, but I’m too congested and stuffy-headed to figure it out; I’ll leave that as an exercise for you). First, let’s get this out there right now: Microsoft Windows is…

Friday Five: “Must-Have” Blog Design Elements

As I have mentioned, I read a lot of blogs. Right now, I have a bit over 100 subscriptions in Google Reader. But I don’t just read the RSS feed. I also have Gina Trapani‘s Better GReader addon for Firefox, so by clicking an article title in GReader, I can see the article as it…

Friday Five: Typos and How To Avoid Them

As a follow-on to my post from earlier in the week, I want to further acknowledge some of the comments you made. Let us do that by identifying five common typographical errors (let’s just agree to call them "typos" rather than "errors of ignorance," okay?), then showing you how to not make them. It’s vs….

Friday Five: WoW Blogs You MUST Read

While I don’t write about World of Warcraft nearly as much as I used to, it’s still a very big part of my online life. I probably read about WoW as much as I play it (maybe even more), despite the fact I’ve cut the number of WoW blogsto which I’m subscribed by at least…

Friday Five: Best Lagers

It’s midsummer (regardless of all the back-to-school stuff): The PGA Championship is underway, baseball’s pennant races are heating up, NFL training camps are in full swing, and you’re about to start choosing your can’t-miss fantasy team. Even if you’re not a sports fan, you’ve noticed the heat index is in the "hot as hell" range….

Friday Five: Absolutely Must-Have WordPress Addons

Welcome to the third installment of Friday Five! I don’t know about you, but I’m rather impressed with myself for keeping this going for three weeks in a row! Last week, as you may recall (the link is there in case you don’t), I showcased a handful of addons intended to enhance your interaction with…

Friday Five: Reader-Friendly WordPress Plugins

Currently, I have 41 active plugins, so limiting this list to just five is not an easy task: I could easily identify a dozen I’d hate to abandon. Instead, I tried to identify those plugins I find essential to enhance my relationship with my readers.1 1. CommentLuv CommentLuv shows a link to the last post…

Friday Five: Software

Welcome to what I hope will be a weekly feature at the Aerie: A listing of five “things” with a similar theme. This week it happens to be software; next week, it could be irritations, ice cream flavors, or beers. Who knows what may strike my fancy? What Do I Mean By “Software”? Well…how about…
