Typepad gets a few useful feature additions

Typepad New Features Originally uploaded by jeffclavier.

Six Apart just announced a few new additions to TypePad that are worth noting:

The most important one – by far – was the ability to link your TypePad feeds to your FeedBurner managed feed, which I blogged about upon release. For the first time, bloggers know exactly how many subscribers they have across their numerous feed incarnations – and that is important to their ego . I like the ability to feature a post temporarily. This one (related to the World Cup) will be up until Sunday. And then I stop blogging about sports – I swear. It would however be great to somehow mark the post as “Featured” since the current implementation does not make it explicit.

NewsGator for Windows Mobile: I like it but…

Just saw this on my friend Brad Feld’s blog: NewsGator for Windows Mobile Beta Available, and decided to give it a try.

Introducing the Glendor Jobs Search Showcase

And the excitement of unveiling something that you have been working on for months or years is (thankfully) always there.

It is therefore my great pleasure to announce the official launch of the Glendor job showcase, developed by one of my clients, Glenbrook Networks.

The company has developed over the past four years a unique technology platform that automatically … Read more »
