Messing around with social media

Lately at work I’ve been integrating a lot of different services into my daily routine and started missing doing it in my spare time. It seems lately I’ve only been tweeting and going on Facebook – and not much of it.

So in order to become more proficient in some of the tools of my trade [Web 2.0 is still hot… right?] I decided to sign up for a mailchimp account to play around with creating newsletters, started transferring my photos to Flickr (see separate post) and updated my blog (behind the scenes and on-stage).

WordPress first impressions

So I’ve only had wordpress set up for about 24 hours now, but I already like what I can do. It’s not so much that there are extra features, but the ease of customization and extendability of those. One example is the themes, of which there are a lot, that still alow me a certain degree of input to content.

Second is mobility. For someone spending most of his time in either an office or in front of my computer, mobility and offline capability might not seem like such a big deal, but usually my blogpost ideas come to me while I’m on the road one way or another. So having the option of doing offline blogging through a dedicated iPod/iPhone application actually counts for a lot. WordPress have their own dedicated app, which despite some bugs seems quite good. Actually this post is being written on my iPod in the metro going home from work. If that isn’t amazing I don’t know what is!
