WordPress 3.0.2 is available

So I just logged in to blog, and got a notice that WordPress 3.0.2 is available for download. If you’re seeing this message in your dashboard, you will definitely want to go update your installation as soon as possible. Whether you blog about personal stuff, holiday gift ideas like a doctors coat, or you maintain a company or corporate blog, it’s very important to keep WordPress up to date. Most in-between-version releases offer security updates, and it goes without saying that these are of paramount importance!

Do you need any lab coats?

Even if you’re not in the medical field, lab coats can be pretty handy to have around. They’re great for Halloween, for other events where you might want to dress up as a doctor (House-themed parties, anyone?), and even for arts and crafts with the kids. Heck, I remember my mom giving me an unused doctors coat of hers to play with when I was a kid!

Anyway, if you need lab coats or nursing uniforms, be sure to check out Medelita. They have all sorts of awesome stuff!

Recommended blogging tools

If you’re going to make blogging a hobby, a passion, or if you’re really lucky, a living, then you will definitely want to approach it the right way.
