Monday’s Musings

Posted by Paula on April 7, 2008

First and foremost, WTF did they do to my WordPress? GAH! Guess those of us at wp.com got the 2.5 upgrade, too. It does look much more web 2.0 -ified, but…. Now I just gotta learn things all over again. I don’t know about that…. Main question so far is where the heck is my stats? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Seems that Dan Zarrella is up to something interesting…. He’s wanting people to stop by and take a survey. I’ve followed Dan for awhile on Twitter now and I have to say, my first impression of him was not exactly favorable, but he’s taking my hobby of social networking and really putting some science and hard facts with it. It is interesting to see why people do what they do. If you haven’t yet, check out his post from last week.

A new site I have joined and not had much of a chance to check out yet, is Shouldi. I don’t know if you need the invites, but I got ’em if ya need ’em! I’ve only answered one ‘Shouldi‘ so far and it was someone asking for relationship advice. Of course, these types of sites always have people asking silly questions, such as What is Google – my guess is if you don’t know what Google is, I doubt you would be on this site! ๐Ÿ˜‰ If ya sign up, be sure to find me and friend me! ๐Ÿ˜€

For some reason, I have been claiming all of my feeds on the social sites today at Technorati. I don’t really know why, just seemed like the geek thing to do! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I would like to mention a couple of blog posts this morning that I found interesting. First, Steven at Daily Blog Tips posted a great article for Part Time Bloggers. Then, Seth Godin gave some basic tips on telling us how to Write Like a Blogger.

Jayhawk Last, but of course, not least. ROCK CHALK JAYHAWKS!! I told a friend in Kentucky earlier that Jayhawks eat Tigers for breakfast. Of course it’s usually Missouri Tigers, but I’m sure we can handle Memphis Tigers as well!

Check out Blah, Blah Tech’s WP plugin “Socialize Me!”

Posted by Paula on January 23, 2008

Imagine one of your articles has been submitted to StumbleUpon. Youโ€™re getting a steady stream of visitors to your blog. With this WordPress plugin those visitors will see a simple message when they arrive: “Hi, thanks for the visit! Wayne’s on StumbleUpon, too!” with a link to your profile. It also works with Facebook, Digg, Pownce, Twitter, etc.

What I find to be even more exciting is that the people I generally want to ‘friend’ or follow don’t necessarily have their info showing on their blog, so with more people using this awesome new plugin, I have an even better chance of being able to find those people on the other social sites! For all of you bloggers out there, grab this plugin so I can follow you better! LOL yeah, right. But it was certainly worth trying, right?

You can download the plugin and learn all about it at Wayne’s blog, blah, blah technology.
