Managing multiple WordPress Sites

So do you need to update more than one WordPress Site? If this is the case you might look around for managing multiple Sites over a singe interface. A few weeks ago I did have a look into that topic due to the fact that I didn’t want to spend an hour every month logging into various sites I keep an eye on, simply to click and update everything. So I had a look over the horizon of these programs.

I found a few but most f them were managed somehow by companies where you needed to somehow provide them your log in’s, which seems logical if you want them to update your sites. But as I am a somebody suspicious, I wanted to stay the boss of my data and so I decided myself for a tool called “MainWP”. So if you should ever consider getting something similar, you might have a look at the program.

You simply have to install the plugin on your main Site, and install on the sites you want to manage a child plugin. That’s it! No fancy registration etc. Very easy! And you stay Master of your passwords and log in’s!

The tool itself comes as a simple plugin for WordPress. They recommend setting up an own WordPress Site for the tool, which I definitely can confirm! It simplifies things and keeps it more clear and clean. Another thing I recommend is enabling the unique security ID on the “child” sites, those are the sites you want to manage over your central site. This gives your managed sites more security. I am not sure that without enabling this feature, it would not be possible for anybody to modify your site. But anyway… Enabling security features isn’t a mistake! Never!

For the rest you should simply try it out yourself. It’s worth a try! Yes there are other sites with more features and you might need to put up an own cron-job, but you stay your very own Key-Master.

P.S. Sites / URL’s have been blanked out!

What Bloggers did in Luxembourg 2015

So for the end of the year, i had once again a look at the blogging scene here in Luxembourg. So honestly, what happened in the scene. Last year i did this already and i have to say that after one year a lot of new pages came up!

Last year on the first place there were many fashion bloggers. And as it appears nothing changed there. They still make the first place. Lots of people seem to be interested in this domain. Even real life meetings take place and this community seems to be alive and kick-in.

Second place in my eyes seem to be (i call them) Instagram bloggers. These are people who mainly post pictures. From any situation in life. Not really any text but the focus is really on photos.

Third place goes to food bloggers. So they lost in my eyes a place but still a strong community and in my eyes the community which is underrated for the work they put into their pages!

On the last place come many blog’s who are very specialized. And i have to say that those blog’s as well as the food bloggers put a lot of effort and their hearts into their blog’s which is in my eyes the most important thing for a blog. Simply putting up pictures of stuff you bought, tried out and photographed is less complicated than building up a complete story around your post. It takes much more time to think, prepare and realize those posts than taking some pictures on the go as you walk a city or do shopping.

But anyway that’s only a personal opinion and certainly everybody who puts work into ist page deserves respect for it! So keep up the good work!

Fir d’Enn vum Joer hunn ech alt erëm eng Kéier d’Blogger Seene hei zu Lëtzebuerg an engem Post zesummen gefaasst, genau ewéi ech dat schonns läschte Joer gemeet hat.

Lëschten Joer loungen d’Moude Blogger op der éischter Plaatz an ewéi et schéngt ass dat dëst Joer och den Fall. Een ganzen Koup vun Leit schéngen an deem Domaine interesséiert ze sinn an et gëtt mëttlerweil esou guer eng ganz Rei vun Evenementer wou sech sou Leit erëm fannen.

Op der zweeter Plaatz kommen fir mech (ech nennen se) Instagram Blogger. Dëst sinn Leit déi haaptsächlech Fotoen bloggen. An egal wei enger Liewes Situatioun oder wou och ëmmer. Hei läit den Fokus virun allem op Fotoen an manner um Text.

Op drëtter Plaatz kommen d’Blogger déi iwwert Iessen schreiwen. Un sech hunn se an mengen Aen eng Plaatz verluer, mä ech sinn eierelch gesot der Meenung dass se een bëssen ënnerbewäert sinn, well hir Bloggen wierklech vill Zäit an Virbereedungen an Usproch huelen.

Op leschter Plaatz leien een ganzen Koup spezieller an individueller Säiten. Ewéi gesot fannen ech dass déi Säiten an d’Food Blogger leider dacks wierklech ënner estiméiert sinn fir déi Aarbecht déi se an hir Posten stiechen. Einfach Fotoen ze maachen vun Produiten oder Platzen an ze posten ass denken ech manner ustrengend ewéi dat wou een Koup Blogger opbréngen fir een interessanten Post ze erstellen.

Mä nichts desto trotz, dëst ass nëmmen meng perséinlech Meenung an all Blogger sollt un sech den Respekt kréien well en dacks zimlech vill Zäit an seng Posten investéiert! Also weider sou mat der gudder Aarbecht!
