Blog Reviews

I have made some great new blogging friends and I’m reading a far wider variety of blogs that I hadn’t previously been aware of.

I am so happy with the feedback that I have been wanting to brag a bit so I’m sharing what they had to say with the rest of you.

This blog is currently rated a 9.86 out of a possible 10 based on 50 reviews.

After only a short hour on your blog, I see the time and effort you’ve devoted to better blogging. I’m almost speechless. You’re tireless efforts deserve so much more than mere written kudos and ratings stars. You’re not simply a source of information, you’re an authority.

What a great blog you have! I was recommended your site by another blogger as I’ve just converted from blogger to wordpress and am having some hurdles to jump over :)
My latest hurdle is trying to find a way of importing a new theme (love yours by the way – soft ethereal colors)- wp instructions seem pretty straight forward except that when I go to my wp-contents/theme page there is no upload button, same goes for the plug-ins. Is that to do with my server? I have emailed them and am waiting for a reply/solution. Unless of course there is a simpler way that I’m just missing – silly me :))

This site is by far one of the most informative sites on the web about blogging. It is not geared towards selling you some sort of affiliate product, there are no hidden agendas here, something that is far too common. Generally, a lot of the blogging help sites are by super bloggers that are high level sales sights or very poor low level sites about how to make money, when in truth it is just recycling other peoples info that they have heard works.

Timethief has painstakingly done the hard yards on solving many complicated blogging issues herself and has research and problem solving skills so far above the rest that it’s almost scary. A an IT professional who teaches about 150 people per year web development, both server side and client side , I would have no hesitation in recommending her professionaly to any busainess or using her resources as the benchmark for all bloggers globally.

Congratulations on resourcing and developing material which will save other people hundreds of hours looking for solutions to their problems and also highlighting areas that people would not even consider existed.

Is it possible to give 6 stars in a world that generally measures by 5 stars…if so take 6,

great blog and tons of helpful info. Bookmarked for continued reference

Another excellent blog here! I’m not much of a technical person, so it’s a relief to read something that’s worded plainly. It’ll take me awhile to sort through, but the information to be found here will make it all worthwhile.

The layout is quite elegant too. :)


An excellent resource for wordpress bloggers and bloggers in general.


Wow..This truly is one cool site…This blog is well written with an enormous amount of useful content…

This blog is a great bookmark for all bloggers who wish to improve the quality of their blogs…

Thank-you for providing this wonderful wealth of helpful blogging tips…

Helpful tips that go far behind just blogging using WordPress. The nice thing about this blogger’s approach is her ability to see what questions a newbie might have and tackle them from a step-by-step perspective.


An often recommended site. I’m glad to have found you, and have enjoyed browsing the information. I’ll be back to dig a little deeper, and make use of the tips.

It’s an easy to navigate site – especially good for someone new to all this. Appreciate all your work!

Why on earth didn’t I locate this sooner LOL Has everything a person could need to start their own blog.

Now I am going to go back and see if I can find some more things I could use or update or change.

Trying to figure out how you got all those little widgets at the bottom of single posts but source code isn’t much help. At least to me LOL Well done

William McCamment Said:

This is one of the most valuable blogs on the net. I have learned so much that I almost can’t believe it. Timethief’s writing demystifies the often complicated world of WordPress and blogging in general. I am really glad I found this blog!

If you are a blogger, do yourself a favor and check it out.

Bird Said:

So many blogs about blogging appear to contain nothing but recycled, badly written, dull as ditchwater lists of “10 things you MUST do or blah blah blah”! Not this one – this is a well written, carefully researched blog containing a rich seam of invaluable information, much of which seems to have been gleaned from the writers personal blogging experience. There is a real person in here, sharing what she has learned and more importantly sharing what is truly useful. It’s so refreshing to have found a lively informative blog on this subject that doesn’t just eat itself! Thank you for sharing, Timetheif; I’ll be back for more :)

As someone who finds herself spending more and more time on the BC discussion threads, it’s hard not to notice certain people. Timethief is someone who has a wealth of information a lot of Bloggers would find beneficial. She answers many a question and provides links to help educate fellow bloggers in the hope it will further enrich their blogging experience.

Even though I’m not as vocal as some, I think Timethief’s contributions to BC are invaluable. Thanks! Keep doing what you’re doing. :)

one-cool-site is a must for people learning how to blog, or learning to blog better: how to organize content, how to be clear and avoid confusing readers;
** how to make a blog communicate.
Some of us as newbies followed timetheif’s previous blogs as a guide to understanding blogging, One-cool-site continues to do the same.

I know I just rated this blog, but I have been going through it’s archives and the information for WordPress 2.5 users is invaluable. I spent the last week pulling my hair out trying to understand the new version and this blog just answered all my questions. I can’t recommend it enough.

This site is so amazing. I wish I’d had this four months ago. If you are a WordPress user this is a gift from heaven. I only recently discovered this gem and am starting at the beginning of the posts and reading forward. TimeThief not only knows the facts but presents them in a way that I can easily understand. Thank you. Thank you!

growhappy Said:

A lot of useful tutorials for beginners in blogging, especially those who are using

I self-host my own blog and last I checked some of the functions like image upload are a bit different BUT! I imagine the tips and tricks on this site being a life-saver for many whose blogs are hosted on PLUS! there’s a wealth of useful links in the Resources section. SO! I’ll give you a 9.5 BUT! Since I can’t do that and you seem nice, I’ll bump it up to 10! ;)

Wolfie Said:

When I started blogging, I was using as my host. During the whole learning process I went to the help forums a lot and TimeThief’s advice there was invaluable and taught me a lot.

Being the kind, helpful soul that she is TimeThief keeps her blog updated with all those tips and tricks that are really useful but which aren’t always so easy to find. Her blog is a one-stop shop for all that you need to know to solve practically any WordPress problem.

I can’t recommend this blog highly enough.

  1. @Carolina Maine
    You’re welcome and best wishes for happy blogging. :)

  2. This blog is well-written, and I like it very much; however, I am SLOW when it comes to computer matters. I finally at least changed my email address on my blog. I hope it is acceptable now. Thanks for your comments on my blog.

  3. Thanks very much for your comment, compliment and well wishes.

  4. I can see why. Very succinct, informative posts on a clean interface. Great information here. I’m currently on Blogger, which I’m sure is not something you’re fond of but I got the account in 2004 and haven’t bothered to switch. Anyway, keep doing what you’re doing.
