Is your student blog updated?
So, I’ve finally got around to getting some more posts in the bag and lots of interesting new titles to bore you with for you to read ;-). There’s a whole host of interesting new incites into how I view academia now, rather than I did when I was in my first few months a little while back – so the experiences I have learnt from should help you.
If you do have a student blog, or indeed write for another blog, then I would encourage you to upgrade to wordpress 2.7 – the dashboard interface is sweet and so easy to use. Yes, it does take a little bit of time to get used to, but having all the little shortcuts built in is more than a little helpful. You can re-arrange all of the different areas on your screen to bring the important stuff to the top, where you need it, and when writing a post things have gotten sooo much easier.
Upgrading to wordpress 2.7 is magic too, and it took me little time to do – especially with the automatic upgrade plugin that you can use – takes less than five minutes to complete and worked like a dream (thankfully).
This university student blog has also had a little bit of an upgrade and looks a little more individual than it did a couple of months ago, so it’s easier on the eyes when you’re reading it – obviously you’ll only notice this if you’re reading the posts in the site and not in your rss reader ;-).
Here’s more to university study tips in 2008 (well, what’s left of it) and more in 2009.
