Just some words & stuff on me & WordPress

Posted in Other Designs, Resources & Bookmarks - Friday, September 19th, 2008

EN – I felt inspired today by a post by Dinu, one of my older readers, to share a bit of my WordPress experience so far. If you are thinking you have found here an expert, look somewhere else, hehe, my experience with WordPress started last year by chance. I was using Blogger just to upload trip and cat pictures and had heard of the beauty of WordPress, but as many I know, I ended up opening a blog on WordPress.com, really confused between what the .org and .com difference was… DOH!! Like if there’s anything similar between them! But well, what can I say, I didn’t know better. Anyways, as soon as I realized .com couldn’t be the wonderful thing I was hearing about, I searched a bit better and understood what the fuzz was about, a wonderful magical package called WordPress, that you could unwrap like a gift and drop inside your hosting to do magic!!!

And here I am, 1 year after, and I can say really that I have SO MUCH FUN playing around WordPress, and I am SO ADMIRED by the amazing developing community that creates incredible extensions everyday, that I always suggest everyone: MOVE TO WORDPRESS!! Hehehe, I feel like a WordPress spokeperson, but I swear I am not getting any money, hehehe!!

So anyways, I felt like sharing today with you some of my WordPress Bookmarks and Resources, in the spirit of the 2.0 community!!! Scroll down under the spanish translations for the listing!!

ES – Hoy me sentí inspirada por un post de Dinu, uno de mis más antiguos lectores, para compartir un poquito de mi experiencia WordPress hasta ahora. Si está buscando a una experta, busquen en otro lugar, jaja, my experiencia con WordPress comenzó el año pasado por casualidad. Estaba usando Blogger hasta el momento, pero únicamente para postear fotos de viajes y de mis gatos, y oí hablar de lo grandioso de WordPress, pero como muchos que conozco, terminé abriendo un blog en WordPress.com, realmente confudida sobre la diferencia entre .com y .org… DOH!! O sea, NO TIENEN NADA DE PARECIDO!! Pero bueno realmente no sabía nada al respecto. Así que ni bien me di cuenta que el .com no era la octava maravilla de la que oía hablar, busqué un poquito mejor y encontre este hermoso y mágico paquete del que todos comentaban!!! Un paquete que uno podía desatar y simplemente tirar dentro del propio hosting para hacer un poco de magia!!!

Aquí estoy, 1 año después, y debo decir que me he divertido tanto jugando con WordPress, y estoy TAN ADMIRADA de la increíble comunidad de desarrolladores que crea extensiones cada día, que siempre le sugiero a la gente: MÚDENSE A WORDPRESS!! Me siento casi como una vocera de WordPress, pero les juro no estoy recibiendo dinero!! jajaja!

De cualquier manera, en el espíritu de esta comunidad contributiva 2.0, sentí hoy que debía compartir con ustedes algunos de mis Recursos y Favoritos de WordPress!! Así que miren a continuación!!

Birdie Says Revamped

Posted in News, Other Designs, Shopping for Cute Stuff! - Saturday, January 26th, 2008

Today I took a little bit of my time and did a bit of revamping to my Birdie Says shop at cafepress.

Since the cafepress template system is a bit aged (all made out of tables) is a bit more messy and complicated than touching the css, or at least i have gotten the hang now of touching css templates and then it became a bit of a headache!!

So anyways, if you can, please pass by and let me know what you think!

I also revamped with the same style the www.BirdieSays.com shop

*hugs to all of you*
