The Return of Teh Blogg3r

And so I returned. So what?!!!!111eleventyone!11!!

Well, not much to talk about except that this blog will come back to life once again. For some reason I feel that my 11-month hiatus give me enough room to reflect on my experience and things that happened when I was gone.

Enough introduction. Let\’s start something new! ^_^

To kick-start this post, I\’m thinking of re-organizing my blog because my format and categories are almost 3 years old already. I also want to create my own template but I can\’t do it now because of the recent upgrades I\’ve made. I used to have many templates for WordPress 2.0.x but WordPress never seize to amaze me — it\’s now version 2.3 and it keeps on improving in every release. Ever wonder how this blog managed to survive when I was gone? I have not updated my blog for a long time and I\’m surprised that Akismet plug-in helped a lot in controlling spam bots from infesting my blog. I was expecting that there are thousand spams already but the number of spam comments were minimized to a few hundreds only. It\’s also helpful that the comment review and spam-cleaning tool is more useful when deleting and identifying spam comments. It uses AJAX neatly in the interface and there\’s now a \”Mark checked comment as spam\” option in the mass edit mode. I\’m not sure on what version it first appeared but it\’s certainly useful.

I\’ll be trying every little new feature in this version of WordPress and I hope I\’ll get every feature working. I have some of my plug-ins broken and even my old theme so I\’m preparing for a big overhaul sooner or later. Let\’s hope I find time (and priority) so that I can work on these as soon as possible.
