Website Design: WordPress and Karaoke!

by NancyC on May 1, 2009

Singing My Way to Twitter Fame,
or Embarrassing Myself to Twitter Shame!

Trying out this new plugin for MP3′s on WordPress…

…was going to run my podcast through it but that’s no fun – all business makes me a boring oaf – So…

…since I went to a Karaoke Bar for the first time in 700 years the other night, I decided to try some songs instead.

I used to be a singer, actually I guess I’m still a singer, just don’t take the time to do it much anymore, much to my chagrin.

I used to be a regular National Anthem singer for our local coliseum – Hockey Team and Basketball Team when we had one.

Talk about a rush, nothing like standing in the middle of the building in front of about 6,000 people all by yourself singing your lungs out – Adrenalin God!

But the Karaoke (Japanese for “let’s get drunk and sing”) Bar was very quiet, and the DJ suggested I tape a few songs.

And now…you get to suffer through them, lucky thing you.

Remember, this is a plugin test, not American Idol, so don’t be dissin’ me.

You can find the plugin here: 1 Pixel Out

Nasty and Mean Spirited Speech in the comments section will not be tolerated. Don’t Be Cruel – Elvis – 1956 – LOL.

Anyway, listen, these songs are songs my girlfriend likes, so whatever works to put her in that “happy” spot.

So here’s a little Manilow and Josh Grobin and some broadway stuff for you – Bon Jovi next time, promise!

Hi, I applaud your blog for informing people.

You won’t believe it but recently I was sorely tempted to include your website as my homepage. I reckoned that way I would have the ease of assessing the goodness of your website each time I started out my chrome. Yet, I had to satisfy my temptation with merely bookmarking your site since I couldn’t get rid of my own site from the default homepage option (even though I wanted to). Anyway, do keep your blogposts updated.

Thurman Duvernois April 1, 2012 at 10:51 pm

Many thanks for posting this. Quickquery, if you don’t mind. Where did you obtain your web-site design? I will be putting up a blog and really like your site.

NancyC April 26, 2012 at 12:22 pm

Thanks, Thurman… it’s what we do!
