Trunk.Ly

Except for the Libyan .ly registration - all looks good. It pulls your FB, Twitter and Delicious links and shows you what you have forgotten in the spurt of information that is the 21Century.

Never forget a link again

As you probably know, I post a lot of links, on my blogs, on Facebook, on Delicious, on Twitter. But, once they’re posted, retweeted, commented, or ignored, they’re essentially lost. There’s no simple way to keep tabs on them or create some value-added resource from all those links on disparate sites. At least until now that is. I was lucky enough to receive an invite into the beta testing phase of a new site, Trunk.ly
Anyway, connect your Trunk.ly account to Facebook, Delicious and Twitter and it will crawl your status updates, bookmarks, and tweets and present you with a reverse chronological stream of all you’ve linked to on those services. It says it will take an hour or so to do that, but for me, the Twitter index, was complete within a few minutes, although Facebook is taking longer. You can also now import your exported delicious bookmarks which means you need no longer feel like a potential delicious referee after the Yahoo announcement that the delicious service would be shut down at some point. The Trunk.ly service also provides you with a block of your most frequently used tags, so you can see what kinds of things you link to most often.

My Blog Is Carbon Neutral

I am pleased to be able to make the statement in the title to this article and I want to explain how I have done it and how I came to hear about the scheme that enables it.

The first step along the path that brought me to this happy state is that I have joined Seeded Buzz.

The idea behind Seeded Buzz is for the members to plant seeds - which means telling other bloggers about their blog posts and inviting them to continue the conversation on their blogs with a link back to the original post on their blog.

Well I have found a blog post from one of the members that covers a subject that interests me.


Seeded Buzz points out that better the Seed conversation and the more extendable / debatable it is, the more other bloggers will Buzz about it on their blogs and link to the original post.

And as we all know, links are the engine that pumps searches - and these are the lifeblood of the internet.

The seeder profile I found was from Thomas Chasm who blogs about a lot of different categories …

Giveaway Tools

After looking at an article on InsightScope about contest giveaways, I just read the FAQs for one of the tools, which is KingSumo Giveaway and I see that as at the time the FAQs were prepared, the tool doesn't integrate with Mailchimp. Instead you have to download a CSV and upload.Also, there is a warning that the tool may not be compatible with Facebook's terms in the future.Finally, there is a long, convoluted way you have to deal with duplicate content, which is described in the FAQs as follows: I’m concerned about duplicate pages for SEO We don’t create new pages, just add a parameter to your URLS. Google just sees the original page and URL structure. What we recommend if Google results are important is to run the tool, then once it looks like a winner I’d change the Title to the winner and the original URL. Remove the other titles. We are working on a fix to make this easier.Advanced users:Utilize the parameter tools in Google’s Webmaster Tools and set the Headline plugi…

Jean-François Millet and John Everett Millais

Jean-François Millet and John Everett Millais - How not to mix them up

John Everett Millais John Everett Millais (1829 – 1896)was a Pre-Raphaelite painter (one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood) who painted colourful (too colourful?) paintings - mostly of people. His most famous is probably Ophelia, lying back arms surrendering to the current.

Jean-François Millet
Jean-François Millet (1814 – 1875) was a French painter and one of the founders of the Barbizon school in rural France. Millet painted realistic rural scenes - peasant farmers, sheep, trees - in a muted pallette that were nontheless romantic.
