Facebook comments

February 18, 2011 · 0 comments

I’ ve added Facebook comments to this blog, so that you can easily add comments if you’re already logged in to Facebook.


Welcome 2008!!! / Bienvenido 2008!!!If you read my blog posts via RSS reader, or get them sent to you by email, you might not notice what’s happening on my blog.  Go on, have a look.

I’ve added a small graphic to the top right of every post, underneath the comments icon.  It says ‘Retweet’, and allows you to do exactly that. Clicking on the icon will allow you to retweet the post via your Twitter account.  So if you like it, share it!

A couple weeks ago I started incorporating photos into all my new blog posts.  These photos are taken from Flickr’s Creative Commons photo pool.  They’re photos that are made available for the public to use, for free. So every post will have a photo included in it. Just to spice things up a bit.

At the bottom of every post is a Share / Save button. Clicking on it will bring up a number of options that allow you to share or save the post with a social media service.  Please share as you see fit!

During the week I purchased a new WordPress theme, and over the next week or two I’ll be using that theme in this blog. It will change how this blog looks, and I plan on making sure it takes this blog to the ‘next level’. Watch this space.

If you have any suggestions for Social Media implementations you’d like to see in this blog, please leave a comment and let me know.


Why use Twitter?

28 April 2009

I still have friends that aren’t on Twitter, or don’t use it very much.  I think they’re like many people who are missing out, but I understand that’s only because they don’t understand the value it might have for them.  So I decided to write this post to see about ‘educating’ people who just don’t […]

The changing nature of life and blogging

8 December 2008

I’ve been pondering the changing nature of my life and blogging, and I’m finding that it’s too ‘difficult’ to find the time for writing long-ish posts or articles about the things I used to write about. Technology today is moving everyone to communicating with text-messages or short status messages on various social media tools like […]

Blogging from my phone

6 August 2008

I decided to add a WordPress app to my iPhone and then discovered my blog was too old… So I upgraded WordPress from 2.3 to 2.6. That was a bit of a mission… And then I discovered my theme was incompatible! So I managed to find a nice theme that I liked (incredible!), upgraded that […]

More on the iPhone

4 August 2008

As I’ve mentioned previously, I intended getting the new Apple iPhone, and on Friday night I did.  I’ve been waiting for a good price to come out by one of the phone providers, and finally, Virgin Mobile came to the party on Friday with the best prices in Australia. My original plan was to purchase […]

Blink List and tag clouds

11 November 2005

Over at Blink List, I've been working on tagging my site with all kinds of various tags related to all the posts on my blog. As a result of what I've been doing, I now have a tag cloud over there, which looks like this: What I've found very exciting is the 'weighting' of tags. […]

Your blog and social networking

2 November 2005

Web 2.0 is an 'upgraded version' of the internet that's being driven by people and what they're interested in. Those that cater to this are developing methods of allowing people to find and use information and services that are specific to their needs. Social networking is a concept that many people are rushing into. So […]
