I’m thrilled that Andrea Whitmer has included BlogAid in her hand-curated news site on WordPress and Genesis.
You’ll start seeing my posts alongside those from WPTavern, SkillCrush, Web Savvy Marketing, Carrie Dils, Post Status and more.
XSS is a common Cross Site Scripting security vulnerabiltiy for WordPress and plugins.

That’s chewing up massive hosting resources and putting your site at risk.
Remember that scene from the Poseidon Adventure where the preacher is trying to encourage more folks to climb up the Christmas tree and they won’t listen?
Remember how when the water started flooding in and they all started trying to get up the tree?

502 Bad Gateway Errors
The internet is made up of wires and hubs and that infrastructure is old. I’m hearing lots of reports of connection issues. It may be the infrastructure or software is being updated. Or, we have massive botnets on the prowl.
Post on why you need a Gravatar
Having a Gravatar account is how you get your happy face to show up next to your comments on blog posts. I’ve got an old post on it, but Gravatar has changed since then. Seems like a good time to write a new post.
