Time to Move This Island

Twitter has definitely changed a lot of things for lots of bloggers. To compound matters, Twitter changes things with Facebook too. I’ve been thinking about the best way to handle all three of these things for a while. There are few issues that come up which make it almost impossible to not annoy someone. Usually I wouldn’t care about that, but how to deal with these things has been bothering me as well:

Here’s what I’ve come up with…

I don’t really have any plans for monetizing the new blog–it’s mostly just for linking out. There may be some VERY unobtrusive ads later, but that’s not really on the table at this point. The basic idea is to make something easy to read and pop lots of interesting stuff. I’ve felt pretty limited here in not being able to do that just because of the layout, and I’m not really interested in completely shifting gears here and changing what I’ve been doing.

Maybe I’ll change my mind later…dunno.  For now I’m going to put the feed from the new blog in the sidebar here. Hopefully these two will end up working together somehow, and I’ll figure out exactly how that will happen according to the bumps in the road I’m sure to encounter.

I’ve run into a situation where I am monitoring two Twitter accounts for myself and it is hard to keep up with them.
My Backroadsnews account is general newspaper/media/personal stuff while my Ksredrider is for my political thoughts, because I figured my newspaper readers would not want a constant barrage of radical political rants.
I have my Backroadsnews on my Tweetdeck and my Ksredrider on my regular Twitter page. That format works okay for me (I wish I could have a tweetdeck with two profiles) but the harder part is keeping some decent output going on the two Twitter accounts and also my blog.
Anyway, interesting post. I’m sure someone will create something soon to either help the situation… or make it worse with more options.

One more thought.
What I REALLY want is a “Me 2.0” where I could have one site that would include everything I do on the web. Little widgets for my Twitters, blog, Ning groups, etc., but also for any comments I post on other blogs, all on one page.
It would be a complete record of my internet activity (with the option to keep certain things off that site so people don’t know how much attention I pay to breeding show rabbits or something… I still need a cool factor there. 😉
I think this idea could make someone rich. I just don’t know how to write it.

@Brackroadsnews Check out FriendFeed. It doesn’t almost everything you want to do.

I get what you are saying with confusion. That’s why my new Twitter account and blog will only get hit with the browser–keep it simple.

Check out Twirl instead of Tweetdeck for managing multiple accounts.

You’re awesome. Thanks. I’ll check them out.

I feed a lot of my stuff to a Tumblr account just as a record for myself. I guess that’s kind of weird, but I do it anyway.

It is hard to figure out if the “{reader]” and “[blog]” post you can do in Twitter. Personally, I’m fine with them if there aren’t too many.

@jacklail that’s sort of how I see it…as long as I’m not being bombarded with them, I don’t mind them. One or two every is not a big deal. More than that and it just becomes a feed.
