When is a worm a good thing? When it makes you upgrade your Wordpress software and start blogging again.
Thanks to a warning from a colleague, I learned that older versions of WordPress were being targeted by worms. My blog was running on a "very old" WordPress version, so this weekend I did a long backup, and then revamped it back up to the latest version. I did the same for the family sailing blog, and our photo gallery site.
Better still, I learned how to post directly to the blogs from my iPhone (images included), and I wrote about five new blog entries today on the train to Portsmouth and back. Tonight, I applied new themes, and hopefully I'll have more fun with them in the future.
Facebook was fun, and so are other online communities I post to, but I'd like to make the blog more central to my "publication space" again.
You can see the fruits of the labor (and posts about Finalsite, Follett Destiny, Wireless Networking and other fun) at
