Using Netvibes you can watch comments, check your blog stats, watch email, twitter, social bookmarking plus much more. As I say – very cool.

    Thanks for the resource Darren. Looks like it will make life a little easier and quicker for many of us.

  2. Debo Hobo says:

    That’s neat and will prove to be very useful. It will go on my list of things to do first thing in the morning.

    I’ve been using Netvibes as my homepage for many months. It’s fantastic to be able to see blog comments, Gmail, Facebook, Twitter and a range of other things to do with my blog and various other online stuff at a glance.

    I’ve set up links directly to my blogging software, Technorati, my Bloglines feeds and a few other related pages.

    I’ve also set up tabs with various news feeds so that I’ve constantly got a way of quickly sourcing information for blogging topics.

  4. As a heavy Netvibes user, this is awesome.

    I’ve been tweaking on and off for months now how I interact with Netvibes and this is a very handy way to get some productivity back.

  5. Wow. What a great idea!! The article was amazingly detailed too.

    I was just complaining to the Mrs., How much time blogging can take. This helps me out tremendously. Thank you!

    Just signed up, its my new default page now

  8. WarriorBlog says:

    I checked their page and I gotta say that does look cool – will save some times.

  9. Yes, I wrote this NetVibes guide for bloggers a little while ago. You may find it useful alongside the Internet Duct Tape article.

    One issue I have found with NetVibes is that it doesn’t like it when you are logged in to the same account from two different computers/connections at the same time.

    Nifty little too he found there

  11. Sweeet…keep the tips coming! I love it!

  12. Netvibes is a great startpage, but as we add more stuff, it gets bulky and crashes my browser :-(

  13. There’s a couple of other ways to do this that might be less browser intensive, like with iGoogle and Page Flakes.

    The key features to look for is the ability to subscribe to password protected private feeds without broadcasting your password (like stupid Bloglines does).

    Have a feature to add any web page, or add bookmarks of your choosing is icing on the cake.

    It’s funny how it takes about 15 minutes to set up, and you’ve saved that time within one day

  14. That’s cool. Thanks Darren!

  15. Warren says:

    Sounds like a great system. Also, I am loving the name Internet Duck Tape!

  16. Blog Opinion says:

    Thanks for sharing the tip. Well netvibes is really cool services. At one place you can access lots of your stuff. You can also use pageflakes

  17. CatherineL says:

    Thanks – that looks really impressive. Anything that saves time is definitely worthwhile.

  18. Jason Tucker says:

    Wow, this looks pretty cool. I may have to start using Netvibes again. Thanks!

  19. Brad V. says:

    Wow! Netvibes is pretty impressive. I’m gonna have to check it out. As a long time iGoogle user, I feel bad switching platforms when it comes to keeping track of blogs, email, calendar, etc. But if Netvibes makes life even more easier, I’m definitely open to change!

    Thanks!

    using igoogle will solve some problems with heavy netvibes load. there are other alternatives too e.g YourMinis.
