Thanks for all your emails and messages saying you’re happy I’m back blogging. Last year was a tough one, so I’m starting this one out with new perspective and a freshness to blogging again here. It’s great!
I joined up to Twitter a long time ago but stopped using it quickly in favour of updating my status on Facebook. Loved doing that, but realised that the history feature is only so long (might be fun to look back on?), friends outside Facebook couldn’t follow along and there was no RSS feed. And while I am probably behind the rest of you, here’s what I have used, in case it is of help to others:
The Facebook Twitter application which updates my Facebook status (no point in having to keep up two of the things). Only downside is it adds “is twittering:” to the start of the status. Others are complaining about this, so perhaps this will change.
Twessenger which updates my MSN Messenger status.
twhirl saving me refreshing a page, or pushing all the updates into Google Reader, I have downloaded this and it sits there like an instant messenger window.
Twitter Feed automatically pulls in blog updates to my Twitter account.
Have you used Pownce? I’d consider switching to it if the file transfers were faster than MSN messenger. Anyone know if they are?
