I wrote this 6-page guide to posting photos with WordPress (PDF) for a friend who wanted to know the basics of writing posts and uploading photos to his website with WordPress. I wrote it as I was learning it, but I think I got most of it right.
It’s written for Vista PCs using Firefox, but it would likely work with other sets up too. The WordPress version is 2.9.1.
My five year old son used a camera for the first time the other day.
It’s his own feet. Either he dropped the camera and it took the photo when it hit the floor, or he’s bending over taking the photo upside down.
I used GoogleMaps this morning to give directions to someone out of town. I clicked on “street view” to provide them with a few landmarks and noticed a friend of mine in one of the street level photos. Then I started clicking around and pretty much took a virtual tour of downtown St. John’s, Newfoundland, looking for people I know.
Then I typed in the address of the house I grew up in, in Nova Scotia. I probably haven’t been there in about 20 years. The house is a different colour, the tree in the front yard is big, there’s an oil tank beside the house which I have no memory of but I guess it was always there, the front steps have been expanded into a deck, and the field behind our house is gone. Things have changed.
Then I took a tour of my old neighbourhood, checking out places my friends used to live, going up streets where fields and woods used to be. It was a strange trip.
I haven’t posted any photos of my cats for awhile, so here’s one of Nigel sitting on top of a door.
