back in the blog saddle?

what a great weekend already! we’ve been in southern california for a friends bday (happy birthday girl!), and had a total blast last night. so amazing to see such great friends- we miss them. if only we could live in the bay area, but still see LA friends daily- that would rock. maybe the high-speed train will help with that… yea, when is that supposed to be “done”. surely it wont be as fast as californua voters would like.

i have been thinking about blogging more recently and realized i could blog from my iphone with the wordpress app. love it!

wishing you in whatever universe you find yourself in currently, a lovel saturday afternoon. peace, love, and happiness. (no, im not on drugs… just appreciating the good in my life.)

too many websites

I sat down today to get logged into Flickr and start using the service since its all the rage. As I looked through the forums on Flickr, I noticed people saying things like “I’m over Flickr, what else is out there I can use” from the post here. I’ve used the Kodak Gallery service for about 2-3 years and have a lot of albums stored there. Its disappointing that I can’t upload those to Flickr.

Which, brings me to my other question- is there a program out there that will allow me to manage all my social networking sites, emails, IM’s, discussion groups, forums, blogging etc. ? An all-in-one if you will. I have tried Trillian for instant messaging, and it works fine although the smiley’s are not as fun as AIM or Yahoo. But then I have a Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn account- which all take up way too much of my time. Can’t some software genius create a program that lets me access all three- or at least Facebook and MySpace together… I’ve got different friends on both.

What are the alternatives?

Furthermore, when can the blogging universe unite? I don’t want to have to sign-in to my Blogger account just to post on someone’s page, while I’m still logged into WordPress, and in the meantime have to create a new account to post a message on a specific company’s site. Can’t we all just get along and unite to streamline social networking?

Maybe I’m missing the point here- but hopefully you’ll help shed some light on this conundrum! Look forward to your thoughts.

how long have you been blogging?

now its only been a few months for me, but i start to think throughout my regular day about what i can blog; taking pictures to post, or watching tv and checking out youtube for new videos to post.

how long have you been blogging?
