I have a blog that has not been updated in three years. Back then, I set up a Google alert for the blog title, in case, you know, I made it big and didn't notice. I have not received any Google alerts since I stopped posting, until this week. [more inside]
Does anyone have any recommendations for grown-up, well written sites about XBox gaming? I've read RPS for years to keep up with the PC scene, but am just about to get an XBox One and would like a go-to place to learn about both big-ticket new titles and smaller indie titles.

I am searching for a blog post I read a few weeks ago, and regretfully didn't save a link to. It was written by a pro-life Christian woman, and the topic was essentially how the pro-life and pro-choice crowd on the left, have a lot more in common than we think. [more inside]

I've been avoiding adding widgets to my WordPress site ... keeping it basic, I think, may reduce the amount of security policing I have to do myself. But now I've made a coloring book page I'd like people to be able to download and print for free. Anybody with more experience know the best way to do this? I have it as a jpeg, but could easily make it a pdf.

I have a blog, and found another site which is duplicating multiple posts of mine in their entirety (text, photos, captions, formatting, the works), in violation of the Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 3.0 Unported License under which I publish. The blog in question is on Wordpress, but uses Google Ads. How do I report the site to Google? Is it likely that reporting the site to Google will result in the thief losing Google Ads revenue?

I teach media arts, and am trying to get my (college) students to post to our class blog, which is at a wordpress.com site. I have invited them all as authors. I am the admin. The students who have never used WP before are posting fine. However, the students who have their own wordpress sites are having a hard time, because when they try to post, they are only given the option to post to their own sites. [more inside]
I read tons of small to medium blogs, read and listen to many independent news producers from public radio to online editions of mainstream newspapers to indy news sources, and listen to dozens of different podcasts. I have started donating directly to a few of these writers and producers, but frankly, it's impossible for me to donate to all of them. What can I do to support a sustainable economy for these nonprofits/progressive media companies/small ventures/creative projects/etc? [more inside]
A while ago I read a blog post about somebody who was offering about 100 free hour-long consulting sessions in the hopes that one of them would lead to a job offer. I can't seem to find that blog post now. Who was this? [more inside]

I am looking for recommendations for websites/ blogs that feature photo-heavy articles on classic and vintage automobiles. I already follow Petrolicious.

So I finally have had to concede that What Would A Nerd Wear, my long-time style bible, is long gone and never coming back. Is anyone else on the great wide internet doing something similar for the modren era? If you, too, are a nerd who is trying to learn how to dress yourself, what are your go-tos? [more inside]

Does anyone have suggestions for a robust platform and any themes that I could use for the site? Thanks!

I have two different primary accounts under two different email addresses on tumblr simply because I didn't understand how it worked when I set it up. This is an extreme hassle for me when attempting to quickly post content to one of the other back and forth. [more inside]
I've been a blogger, off and on, since "weblog" first became a word, but the way blogs and communities are built these days confounds me. I miss tight-knit, ye olde internet communities but am no longer sure how they are built or nourished in a noisier, more commercialized web. I need opinions. [more inside]
I am starting a blog using a very simple wordpress template. But, Wordpress cuts off the post so that users see only the beginning. In addition, it is not clear that there is more content to follow. Is this a theme issue? I need the whole post (including photos) to show on the main page. This seems so basic. I tried googling but no luck.
The Wordpress blog that I manage is being attacked from Tor nodes. Is there anything that I can do about it? [more inside]

I have a Wordpress blog, and I want to get rid of a large number (200+) of old, junky blog posts. They're clogging up my archives and search results, they get virtually no traffic, and they're poorly done and embarrassing. There is no question they need to go. The question is, should I delete and redirect them, or just noindex them? [more inside]
Now that Just Bento is not really updating any longer, what's the best bento blog aimed at adults, not kids, and not at showing off the adorable widgets you manage to buy to make your lunch special, but just a focus on bento staples, fillers and techniques for plotting out lunches in a bento style. A focus on vegetarian is best, but not essential.
I have a professional blog hosted on my own domain. Spry is my domain host and I use Wordpress to publish the content.

My partner and I have decided to give each other one Saturday off a month from parenting our toddler to pursue a personal project. I’ve always been interested in the vernacular of domestic architecture and would like to move on from my years of walking the streets taking photos of local houses and keeping them on my computer. My curiosity will not be sated - I need to get inside those same houses and take photos and I’d like to share them with a like-minded audience. [more inside]

I'm hoping to someday change careers into a more writing-focused field. The advice for this is always "start a blog and join Twitter." I would like to do both of these things, but I have so many interests, and such difficulty thinking about how any of them would translate into a blog, that I'm stuck at the screening phase. How to pick one? [more inside]
I've had a moderately popular niche blog since 2006, and hoder's article got me a bit nostalgic for the olden times. I blog in a field with few serious bloggers - there are others who post periodic podcasts and other media, but few consistent long-form writers. My blog discusses the controversial issues in my field while advertising my services as a consultant (I don't display any paid ads). Is there hope for thoughtful content these days? And how do I get heard? [more inside]
Reaching out to the hive mind to help me name my blog - I am doing a masters in coaching and mentoring and trying to carve out a niche for myself working with research students/researchers/academics - this is the bulk of my "clients" at the moment (in inverted commas as all of that is unpaid and part of the training). I really enjoy working with this group as an ex-academic myself and wanted to share some of that enthusiasm via a blog but can't come up with anything that sounds right. Help?! Some further requirements below. [more inside]
I used to be on LJ and loved it, making online and RL friends until I began editing myself to silence because my ex was not keen on what I wrote etc. Now I'd like to talk to people again but how's that done in 2015? Twitter, Tumblr, Myspace? I want to be able to write short random posts, but what I miss most is the interaction and sense of community, reading a group of friends and having conversations in comments and messages. Facebook feels like shouting across a mall.
This may be a reach, but I'm looking for a half-remembered website. The main design elements that I can recall are that the page is mostly black and white with a header that has something like a splashed ink illustration of a crow on it. I think that it's a blog, either about metal (the music) or fantasy/sci-fi writing, but I could just be conflating other things together. The crow is the important thing.
I'm putting together a genealogy website. Half of it is about my personal family history so my own relatives can look at it. The other half is about genealogy research itself, things of interest to other genealogists in general. I'd like a cool, fairly unique name for this website. Maybe a phrase? Any clever suggestions? Thanks!
