Twits That’ll Teach You Something

Today Mashable posted a list of 18 People to Follow for a Real Time Education, the list was kind of long, so here it is in a nut shell:

I can’t make any promises to teach you anything, but it would be great if you followed @Duhh too!

I’m Not Spam And Blogcatalog Should Know That

After the Duhh blog relocated to our new domain (duhhblog.wordpress.com) I’ve gone through the process of changing the address on Technorati and updating everything to reflect this change.

But when I submitted the new domain to Blogcatalog, Duhh was rejected as spam:

The URL you submitted is solely for commercial purposes, or is suspected to be spam.

The Duhh blog obviously isn’t spam, there are no ads or referral links, I added all the proper links and everything should be the way it should be, so I resubmitted thinking it was just a mistake, but I was rejected again.

So what now? Screw you Blogcatalog, I’ll no longer support Blogcatalog, they been degrading in service in the past months and it’s impossible to get a reply from any of the admins so I’m not even going to try. Anyone wanna hook up at MyBlogLog?

A Little Make-Over

Even the hottest blogs need need a little makeover now and then and now it’s Duhh’s turn.

As you can see we’ve edited the header image to better reflect where we are now.

Plus the social bookmarking buttons to the left side of each post have been updated with more sites.

You can leave any feedback about the new header of buttons in the comments.

Scoutle Gets A Do-Over

I had once tried Scoutle but the overly complicated website and overall system turned me off to the idea. Now as part of the Duhh revitalization project I’m working on leveraging smaller social bookmarking sites so I’m giving it another try.

I’ll be trying to get as many connections as possible to increase my rank and maybe then I’ll get more traffic from it.

I’ll post more when I see some results.

Gearing Down

The Duhh blog is gearing down and I’m ready to bring you more Social Media content. In the past there has been some question as to the topic of Duhh due to the types of posts I’ve added in the past. That is about to change.

The Duhh blog has always been about Social Bookmarking news and tips and it always will, but in the past I’ve deviated to get content on the site.

In the next week you’ll see Duhh gear down and start getting back on topic, Duhh is now monitoring news from all our supported Social Bookmarking sites (Except Newsvine, Slash dot, Blogsvine, Dzone and Sphinn who seam to lack blogs, if we’re wrong leave us a comment with the url) so we can bring you the latest social bookmarking news.

Duhh will also be removing posts that aren’t on topic to make room for better and more to the point posts.

Enjoy reading through are current posts now and get ready to say goodbye to the Duhh spam.

10,000 Hits

10000

Thats right, Duhh has surpassed the milestone of 10,000 hits to our humble blog and therefor today is a day to reflect.
I’ve been taking pictures of what Duhh used to look like and what it looks like now and I think we can all be proud of the improvements we’ve made, click bellow to see what Duhh looked like at the 1 thousand hit milestone and now at the 10 thousand hit milestone.

Digg Improves Comment System

When the new ajax comment system on Digg was announced everyone was excited about the changes. But when they were released people got pissed off fast, the comments had to be expanded if they weren’t the first in a row and it took forever to load.

Now according to the Digg Blog the comment system on Digg has been once again revamped, and it’s better than ever.

Things I Like:
Comment replies load faster
Looks cleaner
Am able to see diggs/buries for comments by clicking number of Diggs
Easy to expand threads
Easier to reply

Things I Don’t Like:
Only shows 50 posts per page
Clicking tabs other than comments still loads information on a new page

So what do you think?
