WordPress has just released an update to the popular blogging platform. WordPress should already have received a notice in the admin dashboard of their WordPress blog.

According to the developers, WordPress 3.0.5 is a “security hardening update for all previous WordPress versions” that fixes two moderate security issues and one information disclosure issue, and adds two security enhancements to the blogging application. This security release is required if you have any untrusted user accounts, but it also comes with important security enhancements and hardening. All WordPress users are strongly encouraged to update. In the same announcement, WordPress developers have said that WordPress 3.1 is coming soon along with the release of WordPress 3.1 RC4. (via)

Google has finally released the official Blogger app for Android users. Using this app, you can easily publish posts with pictures, labels and location information. You can also view the list of posts. If you have multiple accounts or blogs, you can easily switch between them.

Overall, its providing very basic functionality at this time. It only lets you compose new blog posts, and attach photos. There’s no comment moderation, nor anything else particularly exciting. Google took so long to launch an official app for Blogger but it lacks many basic functionalities. We can only hope that Google improves it and adds more features in the future.

My Technology Guide is steadily emerging as a popular website and we are getting a good amount of traffic from both search engines and other referring sites like StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit, Twitter, etc. When we started, we were new and had less traffic, good enough for a shared server that we are using. Even though the shared hosting plan that we are now on, can handle our current traffic but we are thinking about the future. Ultimately, one day we have to move to a more advanced plan. So, we went to the quest to find out what type of hosting will be suitable for us. We found that we are having two options, either move our website to a dedicated server or get a virtual private server (VPS in short) and host our website there. During our quest to find the ultimate suitable hosting plan for us, we found a lot of interesting facts and figures.
