Review: Windows Live Writer Desktop Blogging Tool

How do you write you blog posts? Most bloggers start off using the built-in, web-based editor that comes with blog software such as WordPress, Blogger, or TypePad. This is works for a while, but it leaves you yearning for more functionality. Maybe you then try writing posts in a word processor and then manually posting them when complete. This method provides the advantage of storing the draft posts and having good spell checking capabilities, but using an application that isn’t connected to the blog

Wall Street Journal adds Technorati to articles

I noticed an interesting feature this morning as I was reading the Wall Street Journal online. At the bottom of every article, a Blog Watch section is displayed powered by Technorati. Clicking on “Most Blogged About Wall Street Journal Articles” take you to a page at Technorati where they list the top ten blogged articles from the WSJ. Kudos to Technorati for continuing to make inroads with the mainstream media. I know they have a similar feature on articles from

I received an email yesterday from the Sprint Ambassador Program. A bit skeptical that this was spam, I read the email and was intrigued. Apparently, Sprint has developed program to get new phones and service lines into the hands of folks who would hopefully give them feedback and evangelize their products. The Sprint Ambassador Program is all about exploring our latest products and services and allows you to give direct feedback to Sprint. We recently launched the Sprint Power Vision

Apology for the multiple links posts

Just an apology for the accidental multiple posts the past two days. There should only be the daily links posts and not the repetitive weekly links posts that showed up this weekend. Sometimes you can outsmart yourself by trying to make things easier. I have a WordPress plugin that automatically takes links posted to and turns them into a blog post. I changed the settings to have the post saved as a draft for my review and not

Guy Kawasaki starts blog

Guy Kawasaki has started his blog entitled “Let the Good Times Roll” (and it’s about time Guy!) The Art of the Start is one of my favorite books on entrepreneurship and I recently bought Rules for Revolutionaries. Guy’s writing style is engaging, informative, and to the point. I expect the same from his blog, so this is exciting news. Guy Kawasaki, Kawasaki, entrepreneurship, startups, art of the start, entrepreneur, blogs

EvolvePoint blog

I want to announce the new EvolvePoint blog here for anyone who’s interested in keeping up with the developments of the company and our products.

The goal of the company blog is to consolidate information that has previously been scattered over a couple of blogs. The new EvolvePoint blog will be a central location for company news, FeedCraft news, and FeedMiner news.
