Google Blog Converters

January 19, 2009 | No Comments Yet

Google has released a tool that lets you move from one blogging service to another much more easily. Google Blog Converters is an open source project containing Python libraries and scripts that convert export formats of the leading blog platforms Blogger, LiveJournal, Movable Type, and WordPress.

Blog authors around the world, Google would like to remind you that it’s your blog, your data. Now that Blogger allows users the ability to export all contents of their blog, the Data Liberation team would like to announce the Google Blog Converters project.

It’s great to learn that Google in particular is all for the free transfer of data despite being the owner of Blogger.

WordPress Plugin: Visual Recent Posts

January 13, 2009 | No Comments Yet

Visual Recent Posts automatically extracts images from within your posts and turns them into thumbnails representations of them, magazine-style. See how they can look like in the VRP Screenshots page.

It extracts the images from your recent posts and makes them pretty. You can include your post title and excerpt along with the image, all of which link to the original post. If you want, you can also specify a featured post to stand out among the rest.

No need to enter extra custom fields for each post (which you might forget to do sometimes) and upload extra images just to have post thumbnails. Just pick your preferences in the plugin’s options page and you’re all set.

Voting opens for the Bloggers’ Choice Award at the 2008 Philippine Blog Awards

September 10, 2008 | No Comments Yet

The Philippine Blog Awards 2008 has just announced the nominees for the Bloggers’ Choice Award and the voting has opened. The process has changed since last year:

  • You need to be a Filipino blogger with a blog, which “must be established at least three (3) months from today with a minimum of 10 posts.”
  • You need to pick one nominee and write a blog post about why he/she deserves to win. “Yes, you can vote for your own blog. And no, you cannot vote for a blog that is not on the list of official Bloggers’ Choice Award nominees.”
  • You need to include the list of sponsors in your blog post.
  • You need to submit your blog post here.

So why would you go through all the trouble of doing that? Every blog post counts as one raffle entry (but one post per blogger only). Prizes to that raffle will be announced soon.

Finally, congratulations to the nominees:
