Managing Your WordPress Media Library

Have you ever uploaded a picture to your blog, then decided it was not the one you wanted to share with the world? It happens. I do it all the time.

Most people simply delete the picture from the blog post and leave it at that. Unfortunately, this leaves the file still sitting on the server, taking up space. It would be fine if we had infinite server space, but we don’t and sometimes teachers run out of space for pictures and videos on their blogs.

Here is a video showing you how to remove unwanted files from your blog’s media library.

Where Did My Post Go?

Over the past few days, I have had several teachers ask this question. It seems some blog posts are disappearing. Or are they?

Watch this brief video to find out where your blog posts have gone. If you are not missing any, watch so none go missing in the future.


Slow Down Spam

I have heard from a few teachers lately who tell me they get dozens of spammy comments on their blogs. We do use the Akismet plugin, but some spam still finds its way to our blogs.

This is how I have configured the settings in the Discussion section of my blog to reduce incoming spam.

Dress Up Your Blog

Did you know we have 110 themes available for our teacher blogs? We even have some that are PERFECT for fall, and October in particular.

Let me know if you need help changing your blog theme.


Today I am spending the day with the new teachers, making them fall in love with their Macs and showing them around WordPress.

It is a great way to get back into school, working with these very motivated teachers.

We Should Be So Proud

This past week our Goochland Teacher Blogs were added to the Showcase. We are listed right along with blog sites from The Wall Street Journal, Ben and Jerry’s, and the MTV Newsroom.


I shared with some friends, and this is what one of them had to say:

I’m always fascinated at the way some tools are invented, but don’t really find their true expression until some time later, and often by accident. For instance, there was TV, and then David Lynch made Twin Peaks years later, which seemed to me to be what television was *for* but had never been, before. Your teacher blogs are like that.

I wouldn’t say they are MY teacher blogs, but that is a very nice compliment.
