Develop your IM Network
Having a network of contacts and friends over Instant Messaging software is essential. Sometimes you might need someone to check a feature on your website, other times you might need a tip to solve a technical problem. In those situations it is always a good idea to have someone that you can chat in real time.
The key to building a large online network is to exchange contact details every time you interact with people over the Internet (e.g. online forums, emails, social bookmarking sites, etc.).
Below you will find my IM contacts, feel free to add me. If you wish to exchange your contacts with other DBT readers just post a comment below with your IM details:

Looks like I am a little late but here are my IM contacts:
To anyone who wishes to add me, I’m on GTalk as techgurushankar
Patrix, nope I don’t use GTalk. I do have an account but I rarely open it.
No GTalk, Daniel?
This is great! Since I’m a new blogger I definitely need to network with other bloggers. Here’s my Gtalk (which is my new found love btw!): dshihab85 at G to the M Ail.com
Amanda, that is strange so far I have not received promotional hits hehe!
Actually when I start chatting with someone I am the one asking the address or their blog or website to check it out.
The problem I’m having because of this is people just im you to get a hit to their site, then sign off.
I’ve received several ims. That is not networking.
I’m always looking for more people to contact about blogging related stuff. Add me to your list (I’ve already added you):
Hi Daniel and everybody!
I get stuck with technical problems on my blog often, so it’d be nice to ask someone for help. Thanks for the tip, Daniel

Cool, thanks for the add Daniel! 🙂
I have added everyone who commented, catch you guys online!
Andrew, yeah having some online friends is also a good way to get a couple of initial diggs. I dont think that this is gaming the system for 2 reasons:
First of all because pretty much everyone has one or two friends that he asks a digg once in a while.
Secondly you can’t really game Digg. The content is either damn good or it won’t make it to the front page. There are hundreds of thousands of digg users filtering the content every day, you can’t game this collective intelligence.
Contact me if you’d like 🙂

There’s so much trust here! How can I not get involved. 🙂
Hi all, add me too….
Yahoo/MSN/Live : mr.byte [at] lytebyte.com
Thanks Daniel for sharing your IM information. I’ve added you. 🙂
Anyone feel free to add me:
Google Talk / Jabber: rishidc [at] gmail.com
Yahoo Messenger: rishimac
Live Messenger: rishiraj [at] live.com
Just add me, people:
If the others don’t mind, I’m adding them to my lists.
Daniel: I previously used Gaim, but now I have moved to using Psi and using Jabber transports. I never use the individual clients… the main reason I don’t have Skype is simply because it doesn’t work well with multi-protocol clients.
I don’t IM that much, but ya’ll can add me.
This is a handy blog tip. IM is also great for getting some initial Diggs for a blog post. It’s not really “gaming” Digg. It’s just helping out friends, right?
Feel free to add me:
Jake, that is a lot of IM! I really look forward for the day all the different clients will inter-talk. It is just like the old days when email was limited to users within the same service provider.
Btw just added you.
Contact me if you like
I use IM quite often
