Don’t Neglect the Social

Today, I’ve found potential job opportunities through Twitter and made important networking connections through Facebook. Don’t neglect the social web in your job hunt. Networking has stronger roots when the connection begins in person, but the internet can be a great asset in expanding your reach.

Having four-hundred friends or followers on your social network of choice won’t help you. Knowing the friends you have, who they know, and what they can provide will help you.

Your Obsession Gets You Known (417)

Woohoo!

Going to the post office, getting my stitches out today, 26, work, dinner (Italian) in Bellevue, and maybe sleeping sometime.

I’m learning to type abbreviated messages due to insane amounts of Twitter usage. You can see by this graph my usage has exploded this month.

Gotta go get ready for the day now.

MyTwitter Project Update (Relocation)

I’ve moved MyTwitter for WordPress to a new project page.

MyTwitter is a WordPress plugin I created that allows users to display their Twitter status updates (tweets) on their WordPress blog and update their status through the Options page. It includes customization options including number of tweets to display and formatting options. It can be called as a function or used as a widget.

At the time of writing this post, MyTwitter has been downloaded 1,150 times via WordPress Plugins (download current version now).

It’s also interesting to note the number of different languages I’ve seen for pages referring to or using my plugin. To date, among sites linking to mine talking about the plugin, I’ve seen English, Spanish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Chinese, German, Japanese, and Russian. It’s a global community!
