Blogging

 

Has anyone compared 360 to other social networking sites such as LinkedIn, Ecademy, OpenBC. There are more social networking tools if you will have the time to search them out.

What about blogging? there are also myriad tools for blogging. You may even host it on your own site, or any of the many blogging sites. Some of them are owned by the Internet giants  such as google’s blogger, msn has spaces, yahoo’s 360 and then you have  wordpress  which is exactly in the same leagus as the foregoing.

I have used all of them in some capacity though I do not have the time to update them regularly. You can see my blogs on blogger, 360, spaces, wordpress. They are all to serve different purposes and I plan to update each regularly at least twicw a week from now on.

These sites actually fall into two categories as i have noticed: Yahoo and msn are buuilding communities which allow you to link with your friends from your blogs, wordpress and blogger are just basic diaries.

Spaces seems more complex because of the heavy use of graphics but is actualy not. You can have more fun with it if you have the time for it.

360 looks basic, but is almost as capable as it’s msn counterpart. It’s simple interface allows you to focus more on writing, but does allow more flexiblity than the other two.

One of the strengths of blogger is in google’s adsense marketing ploy. With adsense, you can turn your blogspot to a revenue generating tool. I also set up some of their links on my blogspot. (Please visit and click, download as you will. I’ll make some coins from it I hope)

My first major write was for wordpress. I love the templates ans the way you can get to host it on your own domain (blogger does this as well, but the templates are not as fun to look at from my perspective). they offer other tools as well to improve the performance of your blog. I still love it, but I have to re position the class of content I intend to publish on it.

Somtochukwu Francis Nwaobodo

My baby was christened on the 28th of July 2006. We named him Somtochukwu meaning Praise the lord with me.

I also named him after me: Francis.

Also, in memory of my late father who passed away on Friday the 21st of July 1995, I added Nnamdi which means my father lives.

Valentine

This Valentine…. My first since I got married! Yeah, I’m still trippin’.  I’ll just take my babe on a leisurely stroll. Don’t get to do so much of it these days. We can just talk about things. But it going to be passé because every day is Valentine or honeymoon as soon we are both home together.

How Does It Feel?

Ok. so I’m not quite a veteran yet but with two months experience, I can give an opinion. Especially, when it concerns me. So, how does it feel?

“How does what feel?”

Being married.

It’s cool, strangely liberating.

Most intersting is that guys now let you do what you want to do because they assume you have to pay the wife some attention. The girls don’t expect much from you anymore ‘cos well you’re off limits. Everyone else knows you have a big project so there’s less demands on your money.
The older folks now see a halo of responsibility about you. you suddenly become one of the Men. the younger ones look up to you… In short, you are the man of the moment.
Personal changes? Well, you notice things a little bit more, and you have to because…  well if you know a thing about women, you know you better notice! Else she’ll go on and on. but with mine, even thats fun. It can lead anywhere. Aint i lucky? And if you’re my kinda person, (and my wife is my kinda person), you thank God for it.
The problem i have with my wife is, she hardly eats. Now, for a guy who loves food, (well used to glut) that can be a pain.  Now, it’s doubly hard since she is a lovely cook. and you know its no fun eating alone. So, i sit there staring at the food and the spoon is in my hand and she sits accross from me watching me eat. granted sometimes it’s fun when she feeds me the stuff. But i would rather compete with her instead. (of course it don’t matter if i win all the time).
Ok, I’ll continue later. gotta go.
