My Blog on Twitter

Now this blog is available on Twitter (@ag_blog).

I chose to have a separate Twitter account for my blog since I do not want have all my blog updates be published under my Twitter account. Having two Twitter accounts will allow me retweeting some of my updates under my blog account and vice versa.

Integration notes will be posted later as I am working on integration with other sites.

I have finally decided to get a blog. Not that I got more time to blog, I’m trying to save time to keep my friends updated with my news. I have a full time job which is exciting and offers challenges daily and, sometimes, nightly as I work for a global company. I hope this sets some expectations that I won’t blog every day or even hour, but will try my best to keep this blog updated.
