Keep an eye out for this kind of brute force attack

It looks like we can deny access to the XMLRPC file by adding some code to our .htaccess files, but doing that affects pingbacks. I guess it is the cost of being secure.

<files xmlrpc.php>
Order Deny,Allow
Deny from all

Another nice CSS resource for creating shapes

Love it! Especially love the triangle top left/right and triangle bottom left/right and the magnifying glass, though I'd make the handle a little longer/more interesting.

I wonder when I'll be able to animate these shapes?

When your theme is already making 5 or so image sizes for it's own use, you may as well look to limit the sizes that are created that are not being used. By setting the sizes to "0", it prevents from bloating your uploads folder (even more.)

Here’s another site that offers beautiful and responsive HTML5 templates

(A bit more style than the boilerplate link I shared earlier today.)

They have many different templates you can start from and make it easier for you if you're not a designer, or don't want to design practically everything.

Finally am digging into a book that my Mom gave me

Hey, it only took me 19 years to start it.

It's really heavy with information – I have to take it slow to really get everything they're saying. I'm only starting on the first chapter (page 7) and have picked up so much! (Granted, there was an introduction that was XXXI pages!)

Two of my favorite parts so far that I've learned are:

1. There are 2 ways to think of creating – one is sublimation and the other is self-actualization. With sublimation, you're taking your illicit dreams and are creating them in a place that's safe. (For example, if you dream that you have the perfect plan to rob a bank, you can write a story based on that plan and get the excitement that you crave from that and NOT go to jail for actually robbing a bank.) For self-actualization, it's the pure expression of your highest aspirations.

2. Meditate – clear your mind to create. I have always found my most creative times are just before I go to sleep and just before I wake up, so I'm TOTALLY down with doing this. I've begun keeping a creative journal of these times so I can pull from it when I'm looking for inspiration.
