Some guys that changed the internet

This is a list of some young guys that changed the internet with their great ideas. What would you do without them?

1. Larry Page and Sergey Brin

They made “Google” in 1998, when they were only 24. Their first “desk” was located in a garage, and after a while they became the owners of a great empire making billions of dollars per year.

Download day – Firefox 3 Guiness World Record

Some guys came with an interesting idea called “Download Day”. All they want to do is set a Guiness World Record for the most downloaded browser in 24 hours.

All you need to do in order to help with this record is to download Firefox 3 during the “Download Day” which will start as soon as Firefox 3 becomes available (stable version) and it will last 24 hours.

To do that you have to enter the website, choose your country, enter your e-mail (nobody will play with it), click “Pledge” and help the statistics grow! Wouldn’t it be nice if Firefox 3 will become the most downloaded browser in 24 hours? Oh yea!

Add the latest digg updates on your iGoogle

Here’s a good tip regarding how to add the latest digg updates on your iGoogle page. There’s an widget for that. I am a huge digg fan, and this way it’s very easy to see what’s new there. If you didn’t know, on iGoogle you can add different widgets, from feeds to weather widgets.

I don’t know if you noticed this little thing in digg’s footer (click on the pic for full size):

There is written “Add Digg to Google“. To do that you simply have to click the link and this is the digg widget that will appear on your iGoogle page:

It’s a very effective widget, you don’t have to lose any more time to enter digg.com and see what’s there.

Google penalizes blogspot & info domains

There was a big fuss today. Amazingly, blogspot and .info domains were temporarily penalized by Google, they were removed from the search engine. Imagine how big was the impact for blogspot and .info bloggers that had their blogs optimized for search engines!

There were many discussions on forums too, you can check Digital Point forums for the reactions. But there is a happy ending, after a while everyone realized that there’s a big BUG at Google.

This problem lasted from about 2:49pm (EST) to 4:33pm (EST).

How to write my first post?

Some of us had this problem, how to write the first post? Who knows, maybe you will be famous in the blogosphere and many people will be curious to see how you started.

picture-1.png To be honest with you, it depends very much on your niche. If you start a news blog, there isn’t necessary to be a first post where to introduce yourself. You should be professional, start with the news and make an “about” page where to write everything (almost) you want, regarding the blog and you.

If you have a more personal blog, like mine, it’s a must to write a first post where to introduce yourself. You should consider the following aspects:

Give details about you

It’s very important to give some details about you, like what’s your name, how old are you, what are your passions, what’s your job. Because your readers will be curious who writes the blog, what kind of person he or she is.

Why did you make a blog?

Seriously, why did you make a blog? Give your readers some more details about your intentions, what’s so special at your blog?

What will you write about?

If the blog’s domain doesn’t say much, you should tell your readers what you are going to write about. More concrete, what niche you will research.

How to get in touch of you?

Ok, I love your posts, I love the way you think, I would like to get in touch with you. How can I do that? Never forget to make a contact page!
