We’re back again, With a new attitude!

fans

I am way too excited over this, it’s been almost 3 months I haven’t blogged here and the blog was down for some technical errors since we have moved it to it’s new home on the new dedicated server… But who cares? Right?

Well, I am back with a new attitude towards this blog, you may notice some changes here (Like the design and so on) but the main change is in the way I write and communicate with everyone.

Also, the office is gone, we may get a new one again by the winter time, but for now, I am blogging on the road (through my G1 phone), at the coffee shop (Gotta love net-books in Starbucks) and even from my bed!

I got involved in 3 big projects through the 3 months non-active here, 2 of them are done and the third one is going extremely strong, I am even more excited about the last project, that I can not wait (as I should) to share it with you, however I will only share hints until the project is ready to go into the lights, so for the next 15 days I’ll refer to it with the codename: Project W.

The first hint about Project W is that it has something to do with Blogger.com or WordPress.com but much much bigger than both combined!

Also, for those of you wondering about the school at ‘Wahol’ it is my absolute pleasure to announce that we have completed the beta period (Although it took us 2 extra weeks than what we have scheduled earlier) but it was a 100% success, well we only had 79 of the 100 initial members that actually completed the course all the way to the end.

The doors will be open again within the next 4 weeks, so just keep an eye out and you will get more details before you know it 🙂

Also, starting tomorrow, I will start a 2 weeks series of a (While I was gone) articles that I have wrote within the last 3 months and saved for later viewing, it’s mainly of what’s going on Online and some videos as well (About 20 short and sweet articles all together) and I hope you will like it.

To make sure you will not miss any update, just signup to get this blog by email (Link on top right corner) or get the RSS feed (We have a whole new server along with the power of feedburner) so please do signup for it (Like also on top right corner).

The one thing that I have to say, is how much I have missed everyone, although I have been very active on Facebook and Twitter, but I have missed you guys the most 🙂

Until next time (Hopefully in less than 3 months!) 🙂

Cheers!

2 New Twitter Services: WeFollow & Tweet Top

wefollow

Within the last 2 days I heard about 2 new services that is very useful so I thought I would share.

The first one is We Follow (wefollow.com) and it’s been called the new Twitter yellow pages.

The service is a tag based service and shows the top twitter user on each tag/category based on their followers number, so it’s a directory made by the people for the people.

We Follow was created by non other than Digg founder and power tweeter @kevinrose.

I (@GuruOfSales) made 2nd position under #sales and the 51st position under #blogger, not bad for the “Guru” of “sales” 🙂

 

You can add yourself to be in the directory by tweeting the following:

The second service I heard about it this morning when I got a @reply from @ShaneGibson ( something about the Canadian water makes Canadians really smart!) That he made second after me under the category “sales” in all of Twitter. Woot! to us 🙂

TweetTop.com was created by @jordanwillms as the alltop.com of Twitter. I’ve personally found and followed at least 20 new interesting people through TweetTop today.

New Facebook Home Page

You have probable seen it already, it’s done and will be published within a couple of days, in case you have missed it, it’s a new Facebook Home page.

The purpose of the new update is simple, to make it easier to connect with friends and family, like Friend Feed’s live stream will be on the new homepage, this is great as you won’t have to refresh the homepage to get new friends updates. (cool!)

Also with the publisher on the home page, you won’t need to go to your profile’s page to share anything, so basically you can write on your wall, share photos and videos etc. from your homepage.

Requests are now minimized on the top, a one liner links to your requests page. (neat!)

Last but not least, your highlights (Birthdays and events) looks more clear and organized than before.

Check out the new look here.

It looks like it won’t take long for users to get used to the new Facebook homepage, unlike the major changes that happened last year that I am still getting questions about whether offline from my friends or online on the free help forum for Facebook that I am running here. (Go ahead and ask your questions there).

Launch of one click bidding on eBay.com

Fresh news and new tools from eBay.
This week eBay is launching a new tool called:

One click bidding.
This tool is for buyers, and what it allows you to do is: Once you bid once, then to re-bid again just click on the link, it will bring up a small window in your screen (from within the item page) so when it gets to the last few minutes of the auction, the small window will refresh automatically about every 3 seconds.
From within this window the new one click bidding option will be there so you can re-bid very quickly using it.
So look for that, it will be under the bid button on the item page.
This is coming out this week and it’s great for buyers and sellers also since it will allow more bidding and therefore a higher price for the items.
I will revisit and use the tool once it’s out so I can study it more and give you any further information about it.
