So, you’ve written that great article, you’ve shared it to your friends on facebook, and you’re looking to spread the word even further. Through Twittter, your url can reach entire diffrent audiences than Facebook sharing. Getting those first few important re-tweets on Twitter will start to spread your new blogpost like wildfire. If Twitter is still a great mystery to you, I’d recommend Scott Hanselman’s introduction to twitter. You may also be interested in reading Twitter’s own brief “about us” page.
Podcasts I haven’t really been much of a podcast-subscriber, but since getting an Ipod nano, I found them entertaining and practical. I tried subscribing to a couple of radio-podcasts (RadioResepsjonen, Pyro, Tinitus) from a few Norwegian station. This worked out pretty nicely while I was at work, but seeing that I’m now on paternal leave, I have no time to listen to them.
