I thought it would be a great idea to put a little twitter gadget on my sidebar. Short updates about what I do I can write on the go on my mobile that is too short for a blog post. I've started blogging again and this would be my main reason for tweeting at all. However there were a few problems.

The first one is that the sms twitter thing doesn't work. You have to send 4 sms messages to get it too work. I tried twice and it doesn't work. The second thing is that twitter update gadget on blogger doesn't work. Also Twitter own twitter update widget doesn't work and it actually has a error message: "Hmm, an empty timeline. That's weird.". No it's annoying that you have a known problem which you do nothing about. There's nothing weird about that.

Twitters own javascript for such a thing also doesn't work once inserted on to my blog. Twitter own explanation why the widget doesn't work is "The REST API (everything on api.twitter.com) is rate limited to 150 unauthenticated requests per hour per IP address." Once you exceed that limit the widget doesn't work. Discussions about that problem has been around on message boards a couple of years and Twitter's standard answer is IP related and people do not get their Twitter widget to update, ever.

Is says it should work in theory but it doesn't in reality. So I won't be tweeting from my mobile to my blog because it fails in both ends, in reality...

I'm back

It's been a while but I'm back blogging, seriously...

Should I blog more?

Yes I should. It's a good way to develop your writing skills or in my case as often as I blog, maintaining my writing skills. But then again I've been ircing a lot lately. Ircing however requires another form of writing skills apart from blogging. A quick wit  and the ability to write fast and correctly.

When I wrote blog posts in the past I used to rely heavily on spell and grammar checkers and my original text used to be terrible. But ircing has helped me get it right from the beginning because in irc you usually don't get a second chance. There's no delete or backspace. The time the window of opportunity is open isn't measured in minutes, it's measured in seconds.

So yes I'm still writing English...

Any good blogs out there?

During the last year most of my favorite bloggers have either stopped blogging altogether or have greatly reduced their posting frequency. I realize that for many people (including myself) one’s blog is a phase of one’s life and when that phase is over the blogging stops. That is part of the reason I don’t update often myself. I have no real need to blog but I think it’s important to maintain my writing skills in other languages than my mother tongue Swedish.

So to you people who are still reading my blogs, have you found any interesting blogs out there you can recommend? Those that update often and are written in an entertaining way about nothing and everything. Thank you in advance…
