My bathroom is playing tricks with me again. It’s leaking at the base of the floor on the second floor. Now there’s a wet area on the ceiling in the dining room. Sometimes I wished that I could change the who bathroom again. Well, not that it’s not nice, design is okay, but I think the leakage problem is still a big headache.

Most of you will know what I am going to say already, but then you will never guessed that after all these years (ehh.. wait only like 1 year plus) Nuffnang a.k.a NN is venturing further and further into creating more widgets for bloggers alike.
First they came up with the poll system which I hardly used due to the bug I had recently. Then now they came up with a Happy-O-Meter. O_o… Kinda interesting, I must say, well, it’s more like some rivalry to widgets like Twitter and Plurk. What’s this Happy-O-Meter, well, in order to view that, you need to check your Dashboard in your nuffnang Page.
I saw this thing, I knew something is going on. Well, I do monitor my Nuffnang statistics. So let’s play some Happy Meter.
Good thing about this, is that I can choose multiple color schemes. Well, there are many widgets out there that shows your mood only, but this one is good, it’s like a twitter mix with the mood thingy. Because my blog is so blueish in color, I am gonna opt for the blue one.
So have fun playing with this widget. If you wanna know more you can read this blog entry from Nuffnang. Right now I am super happy. Dang, I am hungry too, and hopefully Spain wins tonight.
So many people are starting to pick up blogs right now. I was beginning to wonder, looks like times have changed. I used to blog on lots of different blog till I finally ended myself here. My dad even considered to start blogging politically. Amazed… not really, I expected him to start anytime too. Well, though I wouldn’t think he would like something simple, somehow he loves to try something else which I didn’t.
So then you guessed it, he’s expecting his son to find him a blog system that I don’t use. Why though, I wonder. *sweats* “A Blog can be anything right?? Why need to find something else?”
As usual my response. Though finally I gave up and found an easier blog area for him. Asked him to try http://www.thoughts.com since the name is so easy to remember. Well, he’s gonna penned his thoughts, so why not find something similar.
I even had to do some screenshots. Oh the irony.
Well, looks kinda simple and clean to me. Shouldn’t be a problem. But then I felt it looks like it’s starting to look more of a social networking blog instead. Take for example Friendster and Facebook. Well, that’s because from what I read on their website, one can upload photos, videos, podcasts or even chat in the forums. Well, at least there’s one function which most blog systems out there doesn’t have. The private view for friends and family.
Hmmm.. well, the link though to your blog will be for example http://www.thoughts.com/rukawachew/blog (this is mine by the way). Though I wished it could be http://rukawachew.thoughts.com.
Well, well… well.. looks like there are more new programs out there with lots of goodies for SEO practices. Well, indeed after the introduction of entrecard, there are even others which have the same capabilities like it. Now for those familiar with entrecard, it offers people to link to your website in other’s website using credits purchased. But now how about if your blog link can be linked by lots and lots of people, and with more blog links on your site, you earn credits.
What service is that am I saying? This functionality comes from 23Blogs.com – FREE Blog Roll TEXT Link Exchange.(1:10). 1:10 basically means it has the opportunity for a blog to link to at least 10 other blogs. It’s simple. I even have one on my sidebar, so if you think your blog is worth it and wants to be linked from my blog, just add this great piece of toolbar there. What it means, is that by adding this blog roll, every reader that visit blogs listed in your 23blogs.com box will earn 10 credits.This in turn enables your blog will display on other 10 different Blogs.
Ya, so I just added it, but here’s the screenshot of what is and what is to come. Good way to track your visitors too. Okay, though most important this whole thing is completely FREE and easy to install. Sometimes dang those paid SEO products, but this is such a good tool, that I need to recommend so you guys can add it and I can also add my links to it.
If you don’t know how to center it on your sidebar, just message me at my email and I’ll get right back to you.
There is a new site which I would like to introduce. Yes, heard of Social Spark?? Well, a funny thing is I have joined this community website and it’s good to know that I have also created my profile there. Haha.. seeing how people has always called me weird, I decided to get a profile there with the name Weird Daniel.
Just only a few days after joining Social Spark, I find that it’s really a good place to link together with other bloggers looking to advertise their site and give comments for each other blogs. Well, though I am still clueless as to how to add a friend.
But then all this really need practice as how I was very noob in joining Facebook previously. Well, so far the only functionality for SocialSpark for me now is to get to know the IZEA community more. I can now connect to other bloggers using SocialSpark just by adding a friend, sending comments and giving reviews about other blogs featured there.
Also not forgetting, one can even get paid for doing paid postings. There’s also the nofollow clause in there, so with this, it’ll never affect your page rank. Now that’s really a two thumbs up from me. No more setbacks for page ranking and still get to earn. What more can one ask?
Though I wished that there was a better faq than the current one. What the heck is a blog archive when I joined. I tried searching and was lost.
