What's New?



Most of the recent posts has been focused more about this blog. Indeed, a lot has changed in this blog. From being a blog with a generic template, it transformed into a much improved one. It was good and blogging about the changes feels good too. However, this blog is not just about its design and layout; it is about me. So I decided to go back to blogging about the things I do. For starters, here are some of the updates in the last few weeks.

I have been busy studying various APIs, especially the Facebook API, in the last few months. Now, I am developing a Facebook app, Post This, an application that allows users to post status updates. While I study the Twitter API, Google Buzz API and other platforms, I'll continue coding this app. I am also wishing to develop a major Facebook app.

I also have been more active in mapping using Google Mapmaker. There were some schools, establishments and places that I had mapped. I plan to continue doing this in the future. It is my goal to map at least one or two places in my home town or province every week.

And finally, what are the new changes in this blog? After major changes in the past days, as posted in my previous blog entries, there were only some minor modifications done. The links widget near the footer has been removed. It was replaced by social media icons (linked to my accounts) at the upper part of each page. I added a space for the disclaimer and my personal projects. Also, I put a Google Talk chatback badge, a widget that would allow any reader to chat with me when I'm online, even if they don't have a GTalk account.
