Just joined Goodreads.com

As of a few days back , i joined Goodreads.com. Actually i don’t know how and why i joined. What i do know is, i can manage the books i read or plan to read more easily. The 1 thing that i really dislike about books? They are not as discoverable as movies or music, until i found Goodreads. (how i wish this was paid ad 😦 )

What i normally do is, if i happen to see my friends talking about how good X book is, i’ll go over to Singapore’s National Library Catalog search to see if is there and which library to go to. If is not available, then i’ll try them again if i ever remember. If it is, i’ll try to go borrow it and hog on it for 1 month. Whether or not i read it all , is another question.

Anyway, this is my profile in goodreads and if you are in it. Hit me up, although i have no idea i need a friends list since i use it more as a catalog but is good to have friends anyway. oh , I added the goodreads.com widget to my blog too.

I realise post like this could fit into twitter like “I joined Goodreads.com!” or “Join me in Goodreads.com!” but i guess i just want to type more words rather than tweet it out. Although i must say, when this gets automatically pushed into twitter via Feedburner, the tweet will look like this “Just Joined Goodreads.com goo.gl/asjga” and hopefully someone will click and read it. Hopefully.

Looking through my tags, i think i have another idea for another blog post. Whatever, 1 post a day is indeed healthy . And also i always schedule it to be 18:00hours GMT +8. I don’t know but i just like that timing.


Digging up the answers i got from formspring

There’s a heap of blogging material hidden in my formspring account.. Formspring is a site whereby you ask questions to your friends and they answer it. Sorta like twitter but only for the sole purpose to ask questions. But gah dammnit i just realise i can’t see all the response to my questions. I mean i can all the answers/response but is a huge clump.. A really really huge chunk of data that takes time for me to copy + paste if i want to sort it out..

Is there a simple way to extract out specific response to specific questions on formspring ?


watching die hard 4 while trying to blog is not a good choice. Distraction 150%.

*note 2 *

Ok fug this shit, *clicks on show more answers* , ctrl + A , windows key + A and paste into evernote. Searching the data shit through there instead.

*note 3*

wow fuck shit, this is a fucking ton of information to copy + paste to..

Just joined Anime Planet

otakurean's anime, manga, reviews, recommendations, blogs and lists at Anime-Planet
Anime-Planet.com – anime | manga | reviews

Just hop on to anime-planet for a few days already and after playing around for a while i realise that this is a good site to catalog your anime in. Certainly this isn’t the first site that attempts to catalog your anime database but the ease of adding is dead easy. The site also have a cute feature, Badges.

Yes you can unlock badges if you trigger it. It means nothing but at least it gives you a sense of belonging doesn’t it?. My daily routine now involves me adding and beefing up my database for 5-10mins a day(can probably add a dozen or so anime). Clicking on browse by year and click on the anime that I’ve watched and plan to watch. Also another good thing about the site is that , it loads quick. Well if you’re frustrated by your current anime database website, hop over to anime-planet and i hope to see you there :). The admin is pretty friendly too, you can stalk @AnimePlanet

Hopefully the site can take off well enough and not die.
