StumbleUpon Quintuplet From The King Of Blogging Gobshites

Stumbleupon Popup

Yes that title makes total sense, but you will have to keep reading to find out exactly why.

Stumble Popup

How often do you read a great blog post and forget to share it with your friends? The Stumbleupon toolbar is often a long mouse move away, and most people don’t use shortcuts when browsing, because they can’t remember them, or because of conflicts between different toolbars and other applications that are running on a system by default.

I Bet You Missed Some of These (March 07)

These are some highlights (in my opinion) of some of the content I have created over the last month. If I have missed anything out which you enjoyed or gained some value from, please let others know in the comments.

Destroy Your Blog Rankings Linking To Digg or Technorati?

How many blogs link to Technorati on every post they publish? Many blogs also use followable links to social bookmarking sites such as Delicious, and social news sites such as Digg on every single page of their site? Google in their recently disclosed patent are saying that it could be a negative indication of quality.

Do You Stumble?

I have been using StumbleUpon a fair amount over the last couple of months, usually at the end of a day when I just want to wind down or gather ideas for site designs.

New Digg Buttons With WordPress (that don’t work?)

Digg has introduced some new buttons and here is how to use them with WordPress.

It’s smart enough to detect whether your link is a Digg permalink or a URL and whether or not the content exists on Digg already. If it exists, you’ll get the familiar yellow Digg box with a real-time Digg count to suggest visitors Digg your story. If the story doesn’t exist yet on Digg, the first person to click on the Digg It link will be walked through the submission process.

Podcast with Irish Attitude

If you are someone who likes to listen to podcasts on blogging and tech issues, you might like to give Paul’s new podcast a try.

It is “down to earth” rather than full of hype (as you would expect from an Irishman), and my first impressions of it are very good (and that is not because I got a mention in the first episode).

Wikipedia NoFollow Plugin

wikipedia nofollow wordpress

I mentioned I was willing to create such a plugin, I was even cobbling the code together.

Then I noticed a mention over on Matt’s blog (just search for Matt) in the comments that somone had written one.
