In reverence to Good Friday I have made an executive decision and decided to forgo the Friday Funnies for this week. Instead I’m going to write about what Good Friday means to me. I know a lot of you will probably skip this because you’re not religious but please don’t because I honestly believe that the story behind Good Friday can hold special significance even to those who don’t believe in a divine being, a God who loves us so much that He gave his only begotten Son up for sacrifice, a choice Jesus made willingly.However, before I get to that I want to state to all who read this post that I do believe.
I’m writing this post in the likelihood that someone else is having the same problem that I came up against the other week. It all came about when I was trying to download a free graphics package as part of my freebies for purchasing Andy’s IM Graphics plugin. Speaking of which I’ve written a couple of posts praising it’s unique properties, one a review of the plugin and the other was a post about increasing sales which used it’s properties to place certain graphics with rich keywords embedded into them, great for getting the readers attention as well as for the search engines.
But I digress, this post is not about how great Andy’s plugin is, it’s about why I couldn’t download a file that was a little over 40 MB in size. Not a huge file by any means but for some reason it wouldn’t download.
Honestly people, if you were ever going to do something for me it would have to be to vote for me in the Shorty Awards. It didn’t even know what a Shorty Award was until I read Mitch’s post, My Pitch For The Shorty Award, Being the person that I am I went out of my way to vote for Mitch and it did it not only because I consider him a friend and all round great guy, nope, I did it because he’s a great blogger and I reckon he deserves to win it.
Strangely enough I awoke this morning to a Tweet that someone had nominated me for an award as well, ergo this post, and yes that person was Mitch. Thanks mate Being nominated I don’t expect to win, as like Mitch mentioned in his post this contest started way back in Jan 3rd and although it ends in February 17th we’ve lost almost three weeks in the voting race.
I bet there aren’t too many of you guys out there who have heard of Kondoot and if you haven’t don’t feel bad because it hasn’t been live all that long, about May 2011. Having said that the guys at Kondoot have been developing it for about 18 months and although it’s still in the early stages I can see them cementing a foot hold in the social networking market providing people like what they are offering.
The guys behind Kondoot are a couple of Aussies, Mark Cracknell and Nathan Hoad who just happens to have his own blog, nathanhoad.net. I’ve actually been chatting with Ben Hoad, Nathan’s brother and one of the founders and developers of Kondoot, via their live feed which proved to be very interesting.
Naturally people will compare Kondoot to FaceBook because there are certain similarities, apart from them both being developed by a Mark The biggest difference that sets them apart is that Kondoot is a social network based on live broadcast feed which means once a member you can sit in front of your computer and broadcast yourself to the world or just to friends and family.
