I signed up for Technorati….

Hope I did the right thing — I don’t really want to be *too* public — although I guess what I write about isn’t that interesting — not many people will find it :)

At first my blog was listed as “protected” — no name — and I couldn’t figure out why.  Turns out there must be a “ping” — which some sites do automatically, but apparently Technorati doesn’t.  Anyway, I did a search on WordPress and found pingomatic and got it to ping technorati and everything was fixed.  I guess if I had posted a new post that a ping might have
been generated … but its done now.

I think updates will be automatic — but, if not, I will just use pingomatic again.

Still wish I could categorize/tag from withing Flock…. maybe I can install Scribefire on Flock … but I will wait to try.  I don’t want to screw up this browser just yet.  I am still hoping to get Firefox fixed.

Scribefire — one slight issue

Scribefire is an extension or plugin for Firefox that allows the user to write a post to a blog within Firefox and then publish directly to the blog — without ever leaving the webpage.  When not in use it resides as an icon in the status bar.  Quite convenient and multifaceted — I love it! but…

The problem I have is that the font size I see within Scribefire is *not* the size that is actually posted — and it doesn’t give a numeric indicator of the font size, either.

I only know that I have a problem *after* I post — and then I don’t know how to fix it within the WordPress interface — I suppose I could re-post from Scribefire…. Just wish I could set *my* default font/size/colour within Scribefire and not have to worry about it… would be so much easier! (My problem could be that webpages within Firefox are scalable — perhaps I don’t have the webpage font set at 100% — but if there were a numeric indicator of font size I could be sure where the problem lies!  When I look at the source page within Scribefire – it says “big” for the font size — what does *that* mean?)

But otherwise — I do love Scribefire — it makes it quite easy to blog :)  I just have to remember to categorize, tag, adjust font/size/colour before posting! :)
