52WoC#21: Get Your Plurk On

52 Weeks of Blog Community Hey, hey, hey – welcome to the latest 52 Weeks of Blog Community. How are you today? And, how did you all find last week’s task?

Anyway, I just want to send a quick shout-out to those who shared their lovely voices (and videos at that) from 52WoC #20: Let’s Hear You

Thank you so much! It was great hearing (and seeing) you all. I hope that there will be more ahead.

And yes, welcome to 52WoC, Melissa. Glad to finally have you here. :-)

For this week’s task, I’m dedicating it to my latest social web media addiction: Plurk. Although I hesitated using it to start with, I became increasingly interested in it due to the conversations that happen within the threads. When I realised that there are plenty of community love that can happen within Plurks, I became a convert.

I also enjoy the “fun” elements within Plurk – the points system (which can be crazy weird), the smileys/emoticons, the very visual representation of communication… the easy way to share photos and videos… Yeah, it’s cool. And, I haven’t said that about many other social web sites/micro blogging platforms.

Anyway, I still Twitter, but I definitely started hanging around Plurk more often lately. And, if you want to add me as a Plurk Friend, you can do so by clicking here. Or, check out my brand spanking new sidebar item with my Plurk widget. And when you do sign up, please say hello.

So, for this week’s task, I invite you to join us Plurkers. If you’re already one, great! All you need is to share your Plurk URL in the comment section here to be considered as a participant this week. Hopefully, you can all find new Plurk friends this way too. :-)

    Hi, Shai! Thanks for the Plurk reminder about sharing the Plurk love.


    I think this may be my first foray into your 52woc challenge, but I’m psyched to be a part of it!

    By the way, I love the way the Plurk Mini-Journal looks on blogs, don’t you? Much more lively and colorful than Twitter. I stopped putting Twitter updates on my blog a long time ago, as it would hang up the page whenever Twitter itself was down..which seems to occur much more often than not.

    Thanks for sharing, everyone. Quite funny how a week has changed our web life, due to Plurk. 😀

    Will be rounding things up soon.
