Singapura.isthereason is a “blog community” conceived in my spare time. Built for my Singaporean friends in Buffalo, the superblog showcases articles collected from blogs of various Singaporeans leading their diverse lives in the Buffalo, New York region. This community blog features the latest WordPress blogging engine (w/ spam control), an automated RSS feed aggregator/publisher (FeedWordPress), LiveSearch engine (thanks to BinaryBonsai’s K2 theme), dynamic AJAX-powered blog Archive, and an integrated Photo Gallery (WPG2 plugin). While I do my own quality control, there may still be bugs. If you discover any, please let me know in a calm and descriptive order (bug screenshots appreciated). When this blog is fully operational, the older http://singapore.isthereason.com will be shut down and redirected here (Mambo is just too bloated). Below is the first email update I just sent out to my buddies:
