Get More Of Me

I've made some changes to the blog. It just seemed like the right time.
 
First, I learned I have an official follower. Neesha has been following Pique A Boo since I don't know when, but I assume it's recent. Neesha and I go way back to Notre Dame Jr. / Sr. High School. I know there are a lot of unofficial followers though and I want to show them off. So I added a gadget that allows me to highlight my blog followers. I'm excited about that.
 
Now I have Joel too!
 
I also added gadgets for potential subscribers. If you subscribe, my updates will come to you. I'm not sure what that will do to my traffic though. Google Analytics is tracking my page, Jesse tells me. I had hits from 21 countries in the last 30 days. I'm going to pay more attention to international issues as a result. Anyway you can subscribe to all posts and all comments.
 
But the jewel of my new blogging crown is Twitter. Jesse has been encouraging me to Twitter for a while. There was talk about doing it at work and another friend gave me more selling points yesterday. So I joined. Twitter basically lets you share your thoughts in 140 characters or less. I've added my Twitter feed to the sidebar, so you don't have to go anywhere else to find me. I even downloaded TwitterBerry, so I can upload from my Pinkberry. I also have phone applications for Myspace and Facebook. I'm so connected.
