You’ve all seen The Circle of No Life. Now, check out its blogging counterpart:
I must admit that I only use three of the services in this circle: Google Analytics, Twitter, and an RSS Reader (I’m not sure why the RSS symbol is lumped in with the online bookmarking/sharing sites, so I’ll just assume that they mean Google Reader). However, I can definitely see how a professional blogger would prefer and utilize all of these free services to their fullest extent.
Via Geeks are Sexy.
I use Twitter and Blogger. I haven’t gone to FB yet. I have a question though, what the heck is Google Analytics for? I was trying to figure it out and it’s making me feel like a dummy.
I’m a disgrace to geekdom: what’s the name of the one between Google Analytics and Facebook?
Also, I’m not quite sure I understand the chart: are the Circles of No Life intended to show a series of events (like Google Analytics coming after WordPress, which comes after OpenOffice)? Does the order have some significance?
@Nani — Google Analytics is a free service for site owners that measures and analyzes your web traffic and marketing effectiveness. It’s a highly valuable tool and you should really check it out! http://www.google.com/analytics/
@Benjamin — That would be Twitter, the 140-character microblogging/updating/sharing service.
I don’t think the circle is meant to be taken in a directional manner. Just like the original Circle of No Life, each service represents something that we continue to come back to (with no significance in order).
I meant the one directly counter-clockwise from Facebook, the bird with the envelope (I thought Twitter was the lower-case "t"?)
@Benjamin — Oops, sorry. I was half asleep when I wrote my last comment. That one would be Mozilla Thunderbird, the open-source desktop email client.
