As many of you have probably noticed, I’ve been fooling around with adding a Twitter badge to the front page of A Dribble of Ink.

What is Twitter, you ask?

Well, Twitter’s like a blog after seventeen double shot espressos. Meant for small, quick and numerous updates, Twitter allows people to keep in touch with friends – what they’re doing/thinking/wanting/hating/asking/etc…. – the guys on Penny Arcade put together a hilarious comic about it HERE.

More than just a personal too for friends, however, Twitter’s a great way for media outlets, like this blog here, to give their readers a little behind-the-scenes look at what’s going on. Through twitter you’ll be able to find out about upcoming content I’m preparing, tidbits about what I’m up to at the moment, facts about the blog (like Neil Gaiman causes a huge spike in traffic, and more.

You can follow me through the badge at the top of A Dribble of Ink‘s homepage, or you can do it directly through Twitter HERE. You can even subscribe to it through your favourite RSS reader!

Hopefully this brings another fun level of interaction to A Dribble of Ink!

    That’s interesting! Nice to see that Neil Gaiman’s link (I saw it and was very impressed!) made such a difference to your traffic and if you need a home for The Gypsy Morph… *cough*

    I bet it must be fun to have this around and simply add random things to it. I seem to be in quarrel with the HTML gods these days, as they do not allow me to add banners, which is so annoying. I need a specialist in that area. I will have to debate with myself if I can take up another gizmo. BTW, it looks good on you.
