 Chatwing - Live Chat!  I've been looking in to this new tool - Chatwing by Lujure which originally was/is an application that extends widgets to Facebook pages.  You can now Embed the ChatWing Shoutbox on your website to give your visitors a real-time communication tool.  Your very own website chatroom! Free Application  Its so simple to get and its free  - You just create your account here http://chatwing.com/ and then embed the code as a widget on your website or blog - I just used a text widget. Put the code on - and after a few minutes the chat box appeared.

Missing updates in Dashboard? – Its due to Google Friend Connect ! #RIP #GFC

By | March 4th, 2012|Categories: Tips for Bloggers|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

Bloggers see the effects of losing Google friend connect. In November the Senior Vice President of Operations for Google Urs Holze announced Google were spring cleaning, part of this cleaning involved terminating Google Friend Connect for non-blogger sites, such as WordPress. This retirement went into effect on the 1st of March and bloggers that did nothing about it are now losing many page views or unique visits from people that were only viewing from Google friend connect. Google tried to encourage people to transfer subscribers to Google+ and to create Google+ page but we heard that many didn't want to have to create more work for themselves and some don't even like Google+ However, it might be something to think about as the future is clear, with the G+ button having a big impact on SEO and it all being connected with Google profiles, pages and especially business pages, I don't think its something you want to miss out on as a blogger. What they didn't suggest is Google Reader,  many use Google Reader to keep up to date with their favorite blogs [...]

How to enable the new Blogger or Blogspot new threaded comments

By | January 12th, 2012|Categories: Tips for Bloggers|Tags: , , , , , , |

Bloggers on Google's Blogger blog sites have been asking the question for a long time, when will we get threaded comments like you can have on websites such as wordpress. Now they can, today Blogger announced they have made another improvement to Blogger and that is that they new support threaded commenting. Threaded commenting makes it much easier to see whether someone is actually just commenting on the blog or in fact replying to another comment. This makes it much more likely for people to leave feedback on a blog as they can submit there on view on someone else's response to your blog post. For instance - on my blog problems with twitter on the iphone 4s Bob might comment - This solution didn't fix it for me, its still not working. Janice can now reply to Bobs comment  - You must be doing something wrong, as it worked for me and hopefully Bob has clicked notify by mail of any updates to comments on this post - then Bob will see it and he could even reply back.

By | September 13th, 2011|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

Picture: Twitter developers Soon you should be able to find out how many views you get via Twitter as today Twitter announce the release of its Web Analytics Tool. We all love data, we love to see how much we are getting, where it is coming from and how long for.  Analytics platforms are popping up more and more each with more or different information. Twitter have been keen show off its true influence since bringing out its own URL shortener http://t.co which automatically shortens links of over 20 characters. They said it was to protect users from malicious sites where you may get hacked or a virus as Twitters link service is checked by potentially dangerous sites.  However we noticed right away in our usual analytics tools that lots of our traffic was infact coming from Twitter, and one of the reasons we knew this was because of t.co. Not a surprise for Twitter. Previous to that we saw that Twitter had acquired BackType who are involved in social analytics, they said then they will be developing tools for Twitter, So that is who is running this show [...]

How to transfer your RSS feed from Blogspot to WordPress.

By | April 10th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , |

If you have previously subscribed to my RSS feeder (if you haven't why not!) you might be wondering why you suddenly have 10 new blogs. Sorry! As you may know, I recently changed from blogspot to my own domain. (Hosted by the wonderful people of Ooblay)  I was very nervous about doing this as I didn't want to lose readers. Once I had the correct plugins etc, everything seemed pretty smooth (haha) and I thought that RSS was set up. However, friends told me that they had stop receiving notifications of blogs. The transfer from Blogspot to Wordpress was completed, it all looked fine, there was an RSS feed in place so I assumed (never assume) that it had transfered everything from my old Blogger address to my new but when I looked it was a new Feedburner account. Now I had two, maybe because the blogs now had different gmail accounts. I logged into http://feeds.feedburner.com using the second Google mail account and deleted the new feedburner. Next I logged into feedburner with the old Gmail account. It read that it was still [...]
