Experimenting Plugins and Stuff

I have been tweaking the site a bit, and saw a nice wordpress digg plugin at shoemoney. Basically the plugin let’s you display a digg button near the story. At the time of writing I placed the plugin near the topic title. Logically it might be better to be in the end of the story: I suppose people will decide whether to dugg your story or not after they’ve read it. Anyway, I had a slight problem (the button didn’t seem to show even when some of my stories have been dugg earlier), but after digging couple of posts they seemed to work just fine. Here’s an example article It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice where you can see the button in action.

EDIT: Just a few minutes after experimenting the plugin I noticed that digg updated their tools yesterday. Now I have to think which one to use…

The other experiment that I made some Wednesday ago was putting the introduce yourself button in the site header links. I recently browsed what people have said and I realized that besides getting to know some of you readers, it is a fine place for contact people: so if you’d like to introduce yourself it would be nice if you could stick your website URL or email in the comment. That way I (and others in case you put website URL) might be able to contact you in case they want to make deal with you or something.

I’d also like to remind you about the second game production carnival. It will be held within a week, so feel free to submit your entries there.

I’m also going through one business idea in my mind, but haven’t yet found a real solution on how to pull it off properly. I’ll let you know in the future more about it.

EDIT II: Final tweakings for today. Added animated feedburner RSS feed button to top right corner, switched to digg’s tool and moved digg button in the end of the posts.
