I love those tests..
You Are Rock
Powerful and overbearing, you intimidate people with your presence.
People know they can’t push you around, and they respect that.
Deep down, you are calm, confident, and unmovable.
You take everything pretty seriously, and you think deeply about all aspects of your life.
You tend to feel smothered by paper people.
You don’t mind crushing the spirit of a scissors person.
When you fight, you: Use all of your strength
If someone makes you mad: You’re likely to throw something at them
Are You Rock, Paper, or Scissors?

Everywhere you can get a free blog at different services. I take the top 4 services and compared them by their functions and the way to use.
I compared here the services: Blogger.com, WordPress.com, Livejournal.com and Windows Live Spaces.
- Fast registration
- easy way to use
- Tagoption in posts
- Add and arrange Page Elements on Frontpage
- Many settings
- Good Templateeditor (edit HTML, too – Build own theme)
- RSS-Feed and nearly XHtml and CSS valid
- No categories
- Profile and Comments on another page, not directly in the blog
- Navbar on top
- Plugininstalltion difficult
- Only write posts – no sites
- Fast and easy registration
- easy way to use
- dashboard with own style andmany settings
- blog and feed stats
- write pages
- set categories
- many themes and plugins are preinstalled
- rss-feed, xhtml and css valid
- can not build own theme
- limited space (50MB)
- A litle bit difficult for beginners
- Slowest registration but still good
- Choose between two variants of the account
- Choose your mood, tags, location and music at a post
- Friend and community system
- Nearly xhtml and css valid
- Helpmail how to start
- Create a poll
- Advertisement !
- It is not easy to handle
- Navbar on top
live.com (Microsoft Space)
- More or less easy to use
- Many themes and options
- Integrated statictictool
- You can send trackbacks to other blogs
- In other blogs you have a blog it option
- no tags
- very slow
- Too many scripts in the code
- You are not able to edit the css or html code
So at the end of this comparison I can say, that blogger.com is the best way you can start with. The registration is very fast and you can directly start to blog. You have many options, but not too much, so you can handle everything. For those who only want to write posts and maybe show some images it will be ideal.
But if you have a little experience you should choose WordPress.com, because you have more options, better looking and more plugins for SEO and so on.
Maybe you are not agree with. So let me hear your opinoin in the comments.

Promote your weblog 9 Minutes to the hole web.
The only thing you need is the link to your rss-feed and the link to 9 minutes of fame.
If you are fast enough your site will be promoted on the frontpage. The last five entries of your weblog will be displayed and the hole internet users could read, what you are writing. If they subscribe to your rss you will get fame and maybe in the Top 10

And the Search Engine Journal knows why.
There is a list with 13 Reasons why this link attribute (rel=”nofollow”) sucks.
Most of the bloggers don’t know that they use this attribute.
But this tag is bad for SEOs and the Search Engines Bots.
You have the following on your site: <a href=”http://www.alinktothissite.com/” rel=”nofollow”>read on here for example … and so on</a>
If you got this, the bots of a search engine aren’t able to visit the site you are linking. So the content of this site doesn’t get into the index. The result: This site can’t get a better Page Rank and goes down the search results pages.
That’s bad for the owner and for yourself.
So check another 13 reasons and know it better why NoFollow Tags Suck!

I found a interesting service called “Feng-GUI – Feng Shui for graphic user interfaces.™“.
You can check out there, how people view your website. You insert you webadress there and you will get a heatmap for your site.
The description there says:
Find out how people View your website or image and which areas are getting most of the attention.
The ViewFinder Heatmap service, simulates human visual attention and creates an attention heatmap.
My heatmap looks like this:
There is also a firefox extension which will creat heatmaps of every site you are.

Now you just have to go to GMail and sign up for an account.

Have fun with GMail

I really don’t like it, when there are so many buttons of different social bookmarking services at the end of the post. So I’ve searched for a better way to do and I found something interesting.
One button to rule them all!
Add this! is a fantastic service for blogger.
Easy Bookmarking – Makes it very easy for your visitors to bookmark your website or blog, and subscribe to your feeds (support most bookmarking and feed reader services)
And this only with one button. The visitor can choose his favourite bookmark service and add blog posts or the whole blog into is bookmarks.
So from now on, you can bookmark my posts

Firefox is a brilliant browser. Fast, save and good looking.
But one can make him better with extensions.
You can choose from over 1,000 add-ons at the Firefox Add-ons Web site. A Firefox add-on can help you comparison shop, share bookmarks with your friends, see the weather in a corner of your browser, write to your weblog, get news, listen to music – all from inside the browser you already love.
Personalize Your Browser
But are all of these usefull? In the last month I have tested many extensions, but now only a few, usefull left.
- Web Developer – BEST ADDON!
- Gmail Notifier – Informed me when i get a new GMail
- HTML Validator – Checked if the currently site is xhtml valid.
- Internet Explorer Tab – Switch to IE with one click.
- Color Zilla – Pick up the colors of the site.
Additionally are these interesting, too.
