Pure Awesomeness… Sort Of…

I thought I understood SEO, Mofomon’s Blog suffers from my lack of understanding

Up until about 3 weeks ago if you used the search phrase “mofomon’s blog” on Google, Mofomon’s Blog would come up as the number one result.  You know, since you searched for it and that is the title of this website.  Everything was running smoothly, wonderfully, accurately.

Now, well go try it, Mofomon’s Blog – this blog – does not come up until the second page!!!  What went wrong?

Honestly, I don’t know.  If someone can lend an SEO hand and let me know I would really appreciate it.

Wouldn’t you think this blog would end up as the #1 result when you search for Mofomon’s Blog?

EDIT/UPDATE:
It turns out that at the time my blog had been attacked by spammers who exploited a security hole in wordpress. They had filled my headers and pages with spam text which dropped me down in rankings. As soon as I updated wordpress and cleaned out the damage they had done, everything returned back to normal. My SEO understanding was sound… I just hadn’t considered a security exploitation as the cause of the drop.

Best way to upgrade your WordPress

Upgrading your wordpress install is vital considering the updates generally contain important security patches.

You could follow the WordPress guide here or the extended guide, and manually upgrade it risking accidentally deleting your theme file….

OR

You could install the automatic wordpress upgrade plugin and let it take care of everything for you, even creating the necessary backup files.

This plugin is likely the best thing that has ever happened to me.  I just used it a few days ago to update my install to the newest build.  Wonderful.

Husbands and wives… taking cheap shots where they can…

Last in the argument joke series….

After  retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security. The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver’s license  to verify my age. I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my  wallet at home.

I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later.

The woman said, ‘Unbutton your shirt’.

So I opened my shirt revealing my  curly silver hair. She said, ‘That silver hair on your chest is proof  enough for me’ and she processed my Social Security  application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about  my experience at the Social Security office.

She said, ‘You should have dropped your pants. You might have gotten disability,  too’

And then the fight started…..

Maybe he was grumpy?

Installment #3 of the argument jokes:  [this one may not be entirely PC]

  • I  rear-ended a car this morning.So , there we were alongside  the road and slowly the other driver got out of his  car.

    You know how sometimes you just get soooo stressed  and little things just seem funny?

    Yeah, well I couldn’t  believe it…. he was a DWARF!!!

    He stormed over to my car,  looked up at me, and shouted, ‘I AM NOT HAPPY!!!’

    So, I  looked down at him and said, ‘Well, then which one are  you?’

    And then the fight  started…..

And then the fight started…

The second joke in the series:

  • My  wife and I were sitting at a table at my high school reunion, and I kept staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sat alone at a nearby table.My wife asked,’Do you know her?’ ‘Yes,’ I  sighed, ‘She’s my old girlfriend.

    I understand she took to drinking  right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear she hasn’t  been sober since.’

    ‘My God!’ says my wife, ‘Who would think  a person could go on celebrating that long?’

    And then the  fight  started…..

TV rocks my world, how to get it to rock yours too

Inbetween work, school, working out, and spending time with friends/family I use my TV to its fullest extent.  If you don’t think having a TV is all that great, it just means you aren’t doing things right… Here is what you should be doing.

  1.  Video Games – Thats right, use your TV for video games, even if you are an adult.  Games are a great way to unwind.  Personally I like the Wii for casual gaming, but the xbox 360 for more involved games and first person shooters.  If you get the Wii…. must get Mario Galaxy, and then the wii fit (see my post about it here).  This even doubles as your exercise, meaning less time at the gym, more time with your TV.
  2. Tivo! – You must get a Tivo!  Tivo means you go to work and school and your shows effortlessly are recorded so when you DO have freetime you can watch exactly what you want, instead of that awful rerun of Mama’s Family.  [Obviously you need cable or satellite to take full advantage of this] [Also, here is a link where you can save up $350 on your Tivo purchase]
  3. NetFlix – Tivo is great, and you get to watch a lot of what you want, but seasons 1-6 of Alias won’t be on, in order.  Get Netflix, setup your queue, watch the dvd’s as they come and enjoy life.  It is cheap and totally worth it.  Worth all $5 a month.

Then again, if you don’t have a TV, just go to Hulu.com and watch some free tv!

Is a female butler called a butless?

A friend of mine asks:

Is a female butler called a butless? You know, like baron — baroness.

Or is it butlette, like bachelor — bachelorette?

I said it would be a maid, or female butler.

Yoga easier to learn on Wii Balance Board for Beginners

About two years ago I started attending Yoga classes.  It was a very small class so I got a lot of personal attention from the instructor but I just could not get the hang of it.  The positions didn’t feel right even though it looked like I had proper form, I couldn’t hold the positions, it was pretty much a twice-a-week disaster.

Recently, I bought the Wii Fit.  I was messing around on it and thought I’d give this yoga thing a try.  Wow! What a difference.   Basically the way it works is you mimic the “trainer”and follow his/her moves, but what makes it different from in person lessons is the center of balance guidance.  When you use the wii balance board in conjunction with the wii fit to practice yoga positions, not only do you have an example of how to stand and hold positions, but you can also see where your center of balance should be.  The balance information totally changed the yoga experience for me.  Now I totally understand how I should be holding myself when I am in the positions!!

Anyone who is a beginner having trouble with yoga should take a shot at it using the Wii Fit.  Its amazing.
