    Twitter Badge

    I found out this neat Twitter widget which allow me to link my tweets (yes, that's a new word thanks to Twitter, meaning my posts on Twitter) to my blog here in Blogspot. First, I tried to put it on the sidebar, just as it recommended. But, it is likely to be missed if it was on the side, and it can lengthen the page for individual blog post, making wasted layout.

    So, I decided to put it on the top. Yes, it will show on individual blog post as well. However, it won't mess out with the layout, plus individual blog post reader will be aware of the tweets as well. It didn't take long for the whole process. And the colors can be adjusted to Blogger's easily.

    I also linked my tweets to my Facebook. Since I don't want to flood my Facebook status with my tweets, I put the badge on Facebook's Boxes tab. Because I think those that want to be flooded by my tweets will follow me, instead of being "pushed" by Facebook's status. I put it on the Boxes tab so just people will know of its existence.

    Microblogger of Choice, Twitter

    So, after several of my friends jumping into the microblogging bandwagon, I followed suit. Since most of them are on Twitter, therefore it is the logical choice for me to choose the same. Remember? network effect?

    It was four months ago since I contemplating about the move. I haven't got any idea yet what to write so it'll probably gonna be some daily activities for the first few posts or so, until I figured out what and how can I best use it for my needs.

    In case you want to follow me, my Twitter address is See you there.

    25 Random Things (About Me)

    So I got tagged in my Facebook with this 25 random things list. The rule goes: once you've been tagged, you are supposed to write a note with 25 random things, facts, habits, or goals about you; at the end, choose 25 people to be tagged; you have to tag the person who tagged you; if you have been tagged, it's because I want to know more about you.

    Here's the instruction to do the tagging in Facebook: go to "notes" under tabs on your profile page, paste these instructions in the body of the note, type your 25 random things, tag 25 people (in the right hand corner of the app, though I don't think I can make it to 25) then click publish. So, here they are, the 25 random things in no particular order, except one (hint: posting date).
    1. Moderation is a virtue.
    2. "Trekker" should be my middle name.
    3. Live, and let live.
    4. I thought I would never work 60+ hours week, boy was I wrong.
    5. I used to be my class' photojournalist in high school.
    6. Finding life's meaning has been a lifelong goal.
    7. I was a church choir boy in my elementary school.
    8. Look it up, culinary connoisseur.
    9. My mom is an impersonation of unconditional love, though if only she knew...
    10. I like unconventional storytelling like those in Memento, Lillies, 12 Monkeys, and La Mala Educacion.
    11. I am well-versed in Earth 616 up to Operation Zero Tolerance.
    12. Fitness First sums it best, "Motivation is what gets you started, habit is what keeps you going".
    13. I am an INTP.
    14. I thought I would not be in love again for a long time, boy was I wrong.
    15. I have been a gadget freak since pre-school.
    16. Staying bald is a way to keep hair degeneration from being visible.
    17. I actually did my final management trainee presentation based on City of Heroes.
    18. Religion does not play a big part in my life, only a central one.
    19. I used to be a shopaholic, until I read Peter Lynch's Learn to Earn.
    20. Wearing mask comes naturally after awhile.
    21. I don't think I'm worthy for the responsibilities of being a father.
    22. My laughter is infectious, ask my friends.
    23. I'm a Merlin to my King Richard and his knights of the round table.
    24. Finance is not my immediate talent, but I love managing money.
    25. I had the most fun in high school, but college was a life-changing experience.
    Hmm... I guess I can continue for the next 25 random things, but... I'd rather let you have yours. Happy listing! and do let me know.

    A Butterfly Award

    Hmm.. I just received an award a week ago from none other than Ibnu Akmal a.k.a. Captain Steve. Well, thanks for the award, though I wonder, is my blog really the coolest blog you ever know? Hee.. hee..

    Well, let's see, this Butterfly Award is a meme. Therefore, I need to pass it on to several other bloggers (the rule says I can send it up to ten others, but I think I'll choose less). Oh yeah, about the rule:
    1. Put the award logo on your blog.
    2. Add a link to the person who gave you the award.
    3. List your award recipients (up to ten).
    4. Add links to the recipients.
    5. Leave a message on their blogs.
    So, without further ado, I present this award to:
    1. Ibnu's Blog (yes, the giver, see the rule above).
    2. Space for Brabus (hi Fel, hope you enjoy the award...).
    3. Sanetya (Man, counting days now?).
    4. Tempat Kreativitas Koe (Rie, where have you been?).
    5. Same Shit Different Day (Judd, what's up bro, how things goin?).
    6. Heart Speaks (hi Frit, I finally found you).
    7. Si Dungu Bertutur (Ndah, I know you won't like this but what the heck, have a joyous birthday bash!).
    Congratulations, guys and gals! Keep on the good writings!
