So, finally discover how to set the default blog in WordPress

I have multiple blogs, one personal and others for projects that I have, I trust in WordPress because it’s pretty flexible and since version 3.5 the improvements are awesome, making the writing a lot easier. Still I had a problem, I’m used to the WordPress app for iOS and Mac to avoid having to load the whole page. It is kind of limited (not all plugins are available in the App) but for a quick post it works. Well, the problem I had is that I post mostly to my personal blog, but one of my projects blog was the default and I didn’t knew how to set a default. I event asked for help. Well, today I discovered that it is possible. First, you need to go to WordPress.com and go to your account settings. Then go to the Account settings section.   And there just select your default blog. hit save and you are done!. How is that I didn’t do this before?.

Press this, or the way WordPress do a reblog.

    If you have been using WordPress for a long time this may sound dumb since you may had this option for a long time, I just discovered. Tumblr is the biggest competition to wordpress, one of its key feature is the “reblog” where you can just reblog a post and have it in your blog. So, we can see blogs that are entirely reblogs, from multiple sites and sometimes it is easier to just follow that blog because they have information from multiple sources you don’t have to be looking for. To me this is a good thing, not to “steal” content from other blogs, but I see that some sites like Twitter and Facebook, they live because of the content we display on them, its like a deal, you let me use your service for free, you put ads in the timeline and live with the content I’m creating. I’ve been trying to keep my stuff with me and by myself, aside from flickr, my blog, my email and other stuff is with me, I’m not a purist, I use Gmail and some other services, but what belongs to me and I do care about it is in my server and with my services. So, if I post to twitter, to me is good to share via my blog, so you can visit my blog too. “Press this” is not just a “reblog” system, I can add text so I can add a comment to that post, so I share that post, and since I add my point of view and more importantly I’m adding a link to the source I’m not stealing any content.
