Moving from Blogger to WordPress


I’ve had my blog on google powered blogger for over 8 years now. I first post on blogger was on April Fools day 2003!! That’s a full 8 years ago, my blog is probably older than some of it’s readers. All 8 of them… I enjoyed my time with Blogger, and this project  to move everything to keithrozario.com was not due to unhappiness with blogger, but rather trying to move...

Using Google Web Fonts on WordPress


Ever got up in the morning and wished you could blog in Tangerine, or felt like only Special Elite could fully express your creative juices. How about: syncopate!!
All those words in color are in fonts that are deemed not websafe, yet you can probably view it nicely on your browsers…the trick is using Googles new web gizmo, the Google WebFonts API.

What is a WordPress Cache and how do I use it?

2) Where did they visit from
3) Which country are they from
4) How long did they read my blog
5) What’s my most viewed post?

Making my blog ‘look’ more professional.


You can always tell the difference between a ‘standard’ blog that’s hosted off blogger or wordpress and one that looks professional. Obviously the first thing that comes to mind is the themes. If you’ve got a theme at least your blog would look a bit different, if you’ve got a premium theme (one that you bought for either 20-100 dollars), then chances are none of...

Installing those damn social media widgets.


Installing wordpress was a breeze. In fact installing wordpress was so easy I was just awestruck by it’s simplicity. WordPress ROCKS! Installing themes was also relatively straightforward. Some themes worked seamlessly, others took some tweaking but overall with a little html/css knowledge you’ll get the hang of it. However I had to install some custom widgets to make my site look a...
