New Blog Additions

by J. Max Wilson (01/22/2009 14:58 pm)

As promised, I have begun to process the backlog of blog applications and I will be announcing new blogs as they are added.

Nothing Wavering welcomes the following new blogs to our portal:

LDS Blogs

Modern Mormon Dad

LDS Bloggers

I’d Rather Be Writing

Take some time to check them out, read some of their recent posts, and coment on their blogs.  New posts from these blogs are immediately available through the portal, and will also show up in the Nothing Wavering Google Gadget, RSS Feeds, and Twitter feeds.

Try the new Nothing Wavering Google Gadget

by J. Max Wilson (01/14/2009 11:35 am)

Do you use iGoogle?  iGoogle is a great way to personalize and organize information that is important to you.  You can track your email, your blogs, visitors to your site, keep a task list, play games, watch videos, and all kinds of other things by adding Google Gadgets to your own personalized page.

Try out the new Nothing Wavering Google Gadget.

Once it has been added to your iGoogle page, you can drag and drop it to whatever place best suits you.

By default, the gadget has tabs for LDS Blogs, Bloggers, and Official LDS Content.  Any of these tabs can be hidden using the gadget settings. The settings also  allow you to add an additional General Conference tab with links to audio and video from the most recent conference, and you can customize the number of titles that appear under the tabs.

Even if you don’t use iGoogle, Google Gadgets can be added to any webpage, so if you would like to display the Nothing Wavering gadget in the sidebar of your blog or website.  You can customize the width, height, color, tabs to display, and number of titles using a simple editor that allows you to copy and paste a snippet of JavaScript code into you page.

Go here to get the Nothing Wavering Gadget for your own page.

Here is a live, working example embedded right into this post:

Duplicate RSS and Twitter Bug Fixes

by J. Max Wilson (01/13/2009 10:09 am)

Some of you may have noticed that the Nothing Wavering RSS feeds had some problems yesterday. For those interested, here is a technical explanation of what happened and what has been fixed. (Those not interested can just skip the rest and know that the problems are fixed.)

Every post in an RSS feed includes a Globally Unique Identifier or GUID that can be used to uniquely identify that post from all others. GUIDs are important because posts titles, post URLs, and post dates often change as people update their posts to correct misspellings, correct ambiguous text, or add updates. Even while all of these other values change, the GUID stays the same, and so when a program like Nothing Wavering or Google Reader reads the feed, it knows to simply update the existing post wit the same GUID instead of creating an all new duplicate post. So if you change the title of your post, Nothing Wavering should simply update the old post instead of creating a duplicate with a different title.

Additional Sidebar Banners

by J. Max Wilson (01/09/2009 10:21 am)

It is apparent that the single Nothing Wavering banner I created does not work in a number of situations, because it is too wide, or doesn’t line up well with other banners.  So here are some addtional sidebar banners for Nothing Wavering.  Again, if your blog is included on our portal please consider adding the banner or link to your site.  It is not required by any means, but would be a great way of promoting and driving readers toward other Nothing Wavering blogs.

Nothing Wavering also has a widget of recent posts from Blogs and the Church that can be embedded into your sidebar.  Click on the Embed [HTML] icon on the front page to get the code.  The number of post titles that appear, as well as the height and width of the widget can also be customized.

Here are the banners:

Follow Nothing Wavering Content on Twitter

by J. Max Wilson (01/05/2009 12:33 pm)

Twitter has become an increasingly popular mode of following internet content and friends.  During the October 2008 General Conference, many people conversed about the conference in real time by following the twitter hash tag #ldsconf (Learn more about General Conference and twitter in this post at the Official LDS technology site).

Nothing Wavering will now allow you to follow new content through twitter.  Twitter provides an additional way to direct traffic to good, mainstream and orthodox LDS content.  New posts on LDS Blogs, by LDS Bloggers, and aggregated on Official Church Feeds, as well as aggregated General Conference audio and video, will now be available through twitter as well as through RSS Feed and Email Subscriptions.

Welcome to the New Nothing Wavering Blog

by J. Max Wilson (01/03/2009 23:03 pm)

When I started Nothing Wavering six months ago, I expected to make rapid progress on additional features.  However, shortly after the launch, I was promoted to Director of Software Development over my division at work.  Simultaneously, my development team suddenly became smaller, so in addition to new responsibilities, we were also picking up the slack left by those who were no longer working for us.  So many of my plans for Nothing Wavering had to be pushed off.

I apologize to those who have applied for inclusion in the portal and have not been added yet.  I will be evaluating the remaining blogs over the next couple of weeks, as well as publishing admission guidelines so that you will know what I am looking for.

Please feel free to leave comments with your questions, comments, or suggestions, as well as any bugs you have found.

In addition to announcing new features, and newly listed blogs, I will also be linking to other blogs here that may not qualify for inclusion in the portal, but are worth your while and looking for additional readers.

Nothing Wavering will be launching some exciting new features for the Orthodox LDS Community, including a Podcast, with cutting edge technology that will allow you to record comments, questions, and podcast topic suggestions over the phone, with the potential for your recording to be included in the next podcast episode.  Feel free to test it out before the first episode.
