Twitter Features Added

I will admit that I hated the idea of Twitter when it launched.  I said prety much the standard things that most haters do.  “I don’t need to know what you are doing every second of the day!” Especially not in 144 characters. After speaking with a few people I realized that Twitter has essentially replaced what used to be a good source of news feeds.  RSS.  If you don’t know what that is, not to worry twitter has now pretty much made it obsolete.

So.  I have created a twitter account.  https://twitter.com/#!/webernet_ca.  There it is.  You will see the twitter icon at the end of each post and over to the right of your screen you will see a follow me tab if you want to follow the site.  A message will go out on twitter each time I post something new.

I guess I will have to start coming up with more outrageous names for my posts from now on which should be fun.

Consider this a May Long Weekend gift to the billions of people that read this site.  Enjoy!

(Note: I realized a day later that I am a weekend early for the long weekend. Oh well)

Happy Canada Day!

Happy belated Canada Day everyone!   I have added the Google “+1” button and the Facebook “Like” to all posts for all you social media types. I figured if I was supporting the new Google+ that I should give Facebook as fair shake as well. Enjoy.  The next post will be about the situation in Greece and you can expect that before the end of the week.

 

New look!

The site has not been around for that long but it needed an upgrade. The old look was the default for WordPress. This new look is the NEW default but with that totally sweet custom graphic you see above.  Bask! Bask in its originality!

Couldn’t I just use Facebook?

Yes, I could.  But then Facebook would know way too much about me. My friends, all their hobbies, their likes, what they had for breakfast…  Way too much information for a company that has admitted that they have no problem sharing all your information with whatever other company wants it.  Instead I choose to use a personal website. Not as social I know. I will not accumulate a list of 500 people I kind of know and once a year I will not get 50 people I have met once in my life wishing me a happy birthday. 

I would like to think that because I have to put the extra effort(not alot, WordPress makes it really easy) of running this site myself that maybe content will be a little more meaningful than letting people know that I am kind of thirsty right now and my left foot is kind of sore.  I am hoping that if I try to produce decent content that maybe I can get some decent responses. 

If Facebook ever senses that the end is near and begins to release all the photos and personal information people thought were private, it’s going to be a pretty crazy time.  

Remember that you can be friends with someone without knowing what they are doing every single moment of every single day. Maybe you will have something to talk about when you actually meet them in real life.
