FriendFeed. I was there almost at the beginning, but as with most other new social media platforms, interest sort of faded. For some reason, I never fully embraced it. Numerous times I flocked back to give it another crack, determined to not feel left out of all the fuss, hype and publicity. Here is a self-submitted list for your pleasure.
I thoroughly enjoy every moment I spend on Twitter. Im very fortunate to be doing what Im doing as and when I feel like it. Freelancing has given me freedom from employee status terror and unbearable anxiety at the hands of some of most unsettling Managing Directors I have ever had the missfortune to work under. No more. Twitter has allowed me to spread my wings and given me immense self satisfaction, renewed confidence and calmness.
To get the ball rolling, I’m asking for you to submit to me any posts that you have written about Twitter, to do with Twitter or just slightly referring Twitter. Designs, twitter backgrounds, logos, photos, thoughts, diary entries, opinions, reviews, plug-ins you have coded, applications you have made, anything really. We want the world to know about it.
But I guess I am aiming this at the confident designer or blogger, who is trying to get a simple or important message across, focus on content using design to enhance rather than to distract.
I’m a StumbleUpon fanatic. I use the toolbar everyday to find interesting websites, read the latest news, and view the unlimited amount of awesome photographs. The amount of resources StumbleUpon holds is amazing and has great potential for every blogger.
… the more you allow yourself to get swept up with his unimaginable motivation and insane enthusiasm, the more beneficial it can all be for everyone.
I still think MyBlogLog has potential to be so much more, plenty of people use it, but it just does not have that certain magical ingredient, that I can’t think of right now. I think the interface for a start needs to be updated and redesigned. That would be a good first step.
They will not be floating applications if all these ‘must haves’ are incorporated in order to satisfy the unquenchable thirst of the mass, it will then be sinking rather than floating application.
One has to wonder how practical this is when one must achieve a level of productivity in any given working day. Unless of course you don’t work for whatever reason.
