Bunker Project Episode 76:

All about WordPress

Intro:

Andrew starts off the show talking about how internet search has become social.

Used to be content (keywords) was king, then links now social sharing.

Search results are customized to your google profile and location.

Andrew remembers episode 1 of the Bunker Project when we all forgot our WordPress plugins if we get to plugins this episode well share our list of plugins that we use.

The new format of the Bunker Show sounded good last week.

New Format:

Intro with Andrew and Bob

Meetup at the Bar on a specific topic

Andrew gives a shout out to Terry the Locksmith for giving us a 5 star review on iTunes.

 

A reminder that we are on multiple platforms iTunes, Zune, Blackberry Podcast App, Stitcher, and more.

At the Den:

Someone brings up a good point that we are talking about the book cover and not the content of the book. Margaret says that the platform makes it easy to get your content out.

Ken explains how to use Livewire.

Livewire allows you to create and edit blog posts offline

Bob asks Is blogging dead?

Bob talks about automated options of posting your blog to google +, which auto-tweets, etc.

We bring up paper.li and storify

There was a great storify article about the Bunker Project.

Who enjoys reading articles or blog posts?

Mr. Anonymous says he only pays for content because most of the content out there is crap.

Bob brings up how you can buy us a beer online and we mention you or your brand.

> Andrew says we should post the buy a beer option on fiverr.

Ken has a new blog:

kamdigital.com all about broadcasting, podcasting, web design and social media.

– the blunt edge > he can talk about anything he likes in thicategorieses.

Can you overuse plugins?

Wix vs Worpress

Andrew mentions www.facebook.com/thebunkerproject and the cool facebook landing page that Bob made is there correction >> it’s gone. The Facebook Timeline has eliminated the custom landing page

Why do podcasters generally use wordpress?

WordPress Commenting Systems

Disqus, Intense Debate, Livefyre

What is Pinterest? How is it used? What can it do for me?

James talks about aiudo.com where you can get jobs or post odd jobs. It uses facebook so it is tied to your identy and people can rate your work. This way there is no anonymity.

Margaret and Bonnnie and Marlyns book club The Book Bags

They meet Monday nights at 5pm and talk business books.

Google social search
