Blog Upgrades

Unless you have been asleep or blind, you would have noticed some changes to this humble blog. In fact, if you were an avid reader, you may have even noticed that this blog was incommunicado for a whole day. The fact of the matter is that I have faced a few more issues with the server and my hosting company recommended that I clean and reinstall everything. I had been putting it off since the last time that they recommended it. But I guess that things have caught up to me.

Since I was going to do it all over again, I decided to take the opportunity and to make some experimental changes to this blog.

I had discovered something called “Google Friends Connect” recently and I thought that I may want to give it a try. So, I’m hoping that you all would take part in this little experiment to see where it goes. It is supposed to be a set of “social networking” tools that Google had made for external sites and blogs. I’m hoping to use it to further engage with you, my dear friends. I’ve started off by merely embedding a couple of widgets. Once things get going, I may embed a few more.

You don’t need a Google account to use them. However, you will need to sign up as a member of this site. You can use the sign-in or join buttons located at the bottom of the right side-bar or at the left end of the bottom task-bar. You can either use your Google, Yahoo, AIM or OpenID logins to sign up. Once that is done, you will be able to leave comments and also recommend articles. That’s for starters.

Thanks for following this blog!
