Keeping Up with MyKugelhopf

After our celebration of Switzerland’s National Day here on August 1st, our travels led us to Appenzell. Many say this is a town where time has stood still. Coming up, I?ll report on the charm and very Swissness of the city (yes yes, and its cheese too!), so stay tuned. But first, a quick post about the opposite extreme – where time does anything but stand still. On some blogs, you may notice as many as 20 options to be notified about new posts (DIGG, Bloglines, Technorati, Newsgator, MyYahoo, etc). It’s pretty incredible, the speed at which information is being transmitted and shared, and to such vast amounts of people all across the world.

    I LOVE Appenzell! I’ve been there a few times to go hiking. I stayed with a family there, and they were all so lovely. I am green with envy!

    PS I had been looking to see if you had a fan page on FB. I’m a FB addict, so this works better for me…I’ll always be kept up to date with your blog posts…

    Hope you are doing well!

    Welcome to Twitter. 🙂

    I would love to hear about your adventures in Switzerland. Or twipic on your photo.

  3. Julia @ Mélanger says:

    Nice! You have completely surpassed me. I’m stuck on email sign up only. I find it incredibly hard to keep everything else updated – Twitter and Facebook. Though no surprise there. 🙂

  4. Danielle says:

    It would be cool to see what you’re cooking/baking/eating, along with a twitpic (as Amy suggested above).

  5. Scribetrotter says:

    I would go for What I’m Baking Today or What I’m Eating Today… and of course make sure you use Twitterfeeds to feed each blog post automatically to Twitter – I do! 🙂

    Well once Twitter stops being freakish today I will be following you all the way. I would love to hear all of the above and you know, fun randomness is always welcome as well.

    Amy and Danielle, you girls are a step ahead of me. twitpic ? oh my, not easy to keep up with all these options (right Julia?!), haha! And Scribetrotter – Twitterfeed too, ok, I’m taking notes from you all – thank you ! 🙂

    Thanks again everyone – looking forward to being a part of Twitter. Fun randomness, adventures in Switzerland, what i’m cooking, baking and eating, and more… E N J O Y !!

    Hi Kerrin, I for one am not that technologically advanced. I just saw that other people have added pictures using twitpic, and I thought it was neat. Here is the website if you are interested; it actually seems pretty easy: http://twitpic.com/

    I would love to know your favorite spots among the many places you have traveled. And how do you pick a good spot to eat/snack when you are traveling? What are your expert tips?
