The Interconnected Intermawebs

I have other blog posts in the works, but at the moment I am on a quest to 'join up' my internet experience, as well as my online personae (for lack of a better word!). In a surprisingly short time, Twitter has changed the way I interact with several of my favourite bloggers and their blogs. I see blog reading as a relatively passive activity, although hopefully we are reading attentively, learning and connecting. The conversations flowing on Twitter is a different dynamic, and allows a more active exchange of ideas. I'm not saying that either is better, I see a place for both, myself. I do find it interesting that there is a whole group of people that I communicate with in both ways. To this end, after a tweet from the wonderful @unmarketing (who blogs here), I am adding a re-tweet button to my posts (and checking with this post that it works).
