• dude, I used to love twitter, but now I’m really hooked on friend feed. Have you looked into it yet? You can visit mine at it’s more interactive and something else to get addicted to.

  • Damien, yes I tried Friend Feed, and subscribed to the rss feed in Google reader. But I quickly became overwhelmed by everything there, especially the redundant stuff which I’ve already seen from my friends via twitter, shared reader items, their blog feeds etc. I unsubscribed the feed this morning. I need a tool that can finely filter the friend feed items, and easily. Yoono’s beta looks interesting but I haven’t got access to that yet.

  • Neil, the twitter widget is only displayed on the front page of your blog – it’s not displayed when viewing a single post.
    Because I subscribe to your blog via Google Reader, and almost always will open the full post in a separate Firefox tab (I’m not keen on reading posts in the Reader itself), I never see your twitter widget, as I never visit your front page.

  • I didn’t notice any change at all, and am not on twitter, so sorry I can’t be of help. All I know is that I can get in your blog today, the other day I couldn’t. But seems everything is fine, the problem, was probably on my end.

  • @Martin – I put the widget on the front to trial it, before I went ahead and put it throughout the site. I think it was a wise choice, as it’s turning out not to be worth the space it takes up.

    @Chica – I had a few problems with the blog this week, but it seems to have settled down for now. Lets hope it stays that way!

  • Hi Neil,
    Congrats! Those are stats to be proud of; sounds like your guest posts at DPS have been really beneficial to your blog.
    I recently upgraded to the latest WordPress version, nowhere near as scary as I thought it would be and, in fact, it seems to be faster. Even my site seems to be a bit faster. I noticed your site loads quicker than it did, say two months ago. Was that a theme change or did you remove widgets back then to speed it up?
    I don’t use Twitter, no room at for new addictions right now :)
