    A couple of milestones coming up 

    On Twitter I will have 500 followers soon.  Its been fun getting to this point.  I am mainly gaining followers by talking to people.  There aren’t any gimmicks or tricks being used. I am just engaging people.  On HubPages, I am going to hit 1000 hub views soon.  I haven’t been contributing to HubPages like Ty, but its nice to reach this milestone.

    I just hit 150 followers on Digg.  Digg is a major source of my news.  I am very happy that I was able to build a voice and a following on this site.

    Using Simple Twitter Connect for WordPress 

    I realize that a good commenting system is a must for any credible blog.  When I first started this blog I punted on this and allowed comments from anyone.  However, I did moderate the comments.  I was mostly just checking for spam.  I know I could have used Aksimet Spam Detection, but it didn’t seem like a great fit for me initially.  I was just blogging what I felt was important, and did think paying a monthly fee for spam detection was worth it.

    Recently the spam was too much.  I changed my settings to make everyone register to post a comment.  This caused my users a ton of issues.  After a couple of friends and colleagues stated this was a problem, I felt I had to fix it.  I wanted a very tight integration with Twitter.  There were tons of alternative options for this.  I researched using Facebook Connect, a WordPress.com login, and OpenID.

    After all my research I found Simple Twitter Connect.  It took a couple of minutes to setup.  Hopefully you like the new Twitter button to tweet posts and the ability to leave a comment with your Twitter account.  If you’re looking to add Twitter as an option for comments to your WordPress blog, you may want to check out Simple Twitter Connect.
