Weekend Roundup #36



Hello people! Hope everyone’s having a great weekend. Sorry if I wasn’t able to publish a roundup last week. I was very busy the whole weekend and I also got sick for a couple days which is also the reason why I wasn’t able to publish any new posts until the end of the week. To make up for that, I’m making sure I post this week’s edition of the Weekend Roundup early. Hope you guys like it.

    @jan – I think you mean you screen the people you follow, coz you have no control on who follows you. For me, I try to follow as much people as I can especially those who are in the same niche or ones that are in my interest, then I screen the tweets on TweetDeck so I only see the tweets from people I choose. :)

    @elmot – Oh okay. Good to hear that. You can’t get sick when you have tons of workload to do. :D

    Re the matter of creating a massive following in twitter: It’s not for me. I’m not selling anything. I’m even screening my followers. For example, I will not follow anymore users who have dollar signs or money for you and its derivatives as their usernames. It’s grating to the ears. And distasteful to say the least.

    You’re right. Bloggingtips.com loads just fine now. :)

    I’m sorry, Jaypee. Obviously, I had skipped the part when you mentioned you’d been sick. Sorry, I missed that. I hope you’re okay now. :)

    @loy – I’m already well, but thanks anyways. I know, I haven’t published much the past few weeks. Right now, I’m trying to catch up replying to comments. :D

    @jan – The link to Blogging Tips works for me. Probably a connection problem when you were trying to access it. Regarding Twitter followers and stuff, its totally up to you. Twitter has the Suggested Users thing just to promote some of the popular Twitter accounts that might be of interest to some users.

    I’m sure traditional media has done this lots of times before and just went unnoticed. The media companies should teach their employees about Internet etiquette and other important aspects/topics like plagiarism.

    Wow, lots of goodies. First two links under the heading “blogging.” Check. The link on bloggingtips.com wouldn’t load. Server down perhaps. Will check tomorrow. The link on twitter – now that makes one pause to think. Should we opt for an organic and natural build-up of followers on twitter or we should avail ourselves of “suggested users” by twitter to get a massive following?

    Plagiarism on the internet. Well, who would have thought a traditional media would stoop so low? I wonder what the venerable Malou Fernandez has got to say about this matter.
