i have had this blog here on wordpress dot com forever and i have always just used it as a dumping / test / lab. for example if there is a IFTTT or another service that lets me push stuff to a wordpress blog automatically, cool, i will just plug it in here and NEVER check anything! seriously.
the entire wordpress universe. what an amazing, enabling platform & resource!
YOU! thanks for being patient while this blog became a catalogue of all my twitter tweets! That “feature” is now turned off. so be don’t be afraid to subscribe to the blog, because there is some actual writing coming soon, not to mention the podcast is going to roll out, newly overhauled as well. some great interviews coming on the dj paine show so stick around.
i collect those widgets and badges like a geek i know.
for a while i was using a really nice service called Widget Box. the idea is simple- it’s online directory of widgets for blogs and myspace etc… you sign up – it creats a code and a user interface where you can “easily” drag and drop any widgets you want… it’s well designed, got a nice ajaxy style sassy design. the guys who run it are on the ball too, but i started wanting more control… plus it crashed my browser a couple of times. i might start using them again soon depends…
anyway, there ya go, my 8 widget/badges/bling for my blog..
i just had the idea that i should put them all on my underused and much hated myspace page.. hmmm…
anyway, let’s see what happens to them all this yea
this last widget thingy is one of my favourites. from “My Chingo” which is part of a company called Moba Talk– and i think the name will probably change soon too… this is what My Chingo says about it’s self on it’s home page: “”Chingo” refers to “Chat Lingo” Audio Comments – Web-based Voicemail So, how’s it work? There are two ways which you can use it. As a public system, or keep it private. As a public system: When you receive a new audio message with optional text comments, it gets added to your player and it is also distributed within an RSS Feed for all to hear and read! Nothing to install. As a private system: When you receive a new audio message with optional text comments, it is added to your member account for you to review, download, or mark as public. “
does that make any sense? it’s really cool when people get into it… but alas, i have no one reading this so…
it isn’t the most attractively designed widget, and it isn’t really customizable, but it works well.
my next widget is the most interesting / weirdest. ether desc ribes itself like this: “Get your free Ether Phone Number. Set your rate. Set your hours. Your phone only rings when people pay to talk to you.” i have yet to have one phone call. i’ll see if i can get any this year… i’ll keep ya posted. my ether page. sign up here
