About the ILB - think about using Twitter, if you don't already
Do you follow the ILB on Twitter, in addition to the blog itself? If not, you may be missing out on some good information.
A few years ago (actually 9 years ago), the ILB first posted an entry titled "How to Read a Blog." It is still useful today.
But today the ILB also uses Twitter, tweeting and linking to every new ILB post. For those of you familiar with RSS feeds, this serves as a similar tool.
The ILB also follows a number of other tweeters (currently 113), and "retweets" the tweets that I feel may be of interest to ILB readers. Because of this, the Twitter ILB combined with the Blog ILB can provide a richer variety for the reader. Take a look for yourself, here, by scrolling down the long list of recent ILB tweets (11,617 right now).
The Twitter ILB does not replace the Blog ILB, of course, but supplements it.
If you decide to join Twitter, there is no requirement that you yourself tweet. You can elect to simply use it as a tool to keep track of whatever you are interested in.
I'm posting this today because this morning's NY Times has a good introductory article on Twitter, by Hanna Ingber, headed "Twitter Illiterate? Mastering the @BC’s."
