I’ve added a lifestream to my blog. I had read about the idea via an article [Working on the web – Joss Winn] that Doug Belshaw shared back in November. However, being particularly busy at the time I was unable to act on it. On Saturday, Doug mentioned the article again explaining that he has added a lifestream to his blog. This prompted me to re-visit the article and I decided that I would follow in Joss’ and Doug’s footsteps. Why? Well, it’s important for me to be able to access my shared information and being able to bring it together into one space (that I have control over) is excellent.
Adding a lifestream to my WordPress blog was very easy as there is a plugin that can be installed from within WordPress itself. I have collated the following feeds:
- Blog feed – jamesmichie.com/blog
- Blog feed – jamesmichie.posterous.com
- Delicious bookmarks
- Delivr shared URLs
- My Amplify prunings
- Images from this blog that I back up via Picasa
- Google Reader shared items
You can access my lifestream from the links bar below my blog header.
I hope that you will find it as useful as I will.
