Bitcoin ATMs Coming to the U.S.

 Bitcoin ATMs Coming to the U.S. BY Will Yakowicz

Austin and Seattle will get the first machines later this month, making it easier for consumers to use the virtual currency and benefiting companies that accept it.

Bitcoin automated teller machiness will soon become available in the U.S., potentially increasing the customer base for businesses that accept the digital currency.

Robocoin, a Las Vegas-based startup, announced on Tuesday that it will install the first ATMs in the U.S. in Seattle and Austin by the end of February–eroding a major barrier to the virtual currency’s mainstream adoption.

The company installed the first two Bitcoin ATMs in the world last year in Vancouver and London. It plans to install additional machines this month in Asia, Canada, and, Europe, Reuters reports.

According to the wire service, the kiosks are similar to conventional cash ATMs, but instead of reading debit cards the machines scan government-issued identification cards like driver’s licenses or passports to confirm users’ identities.

Users will be able to exchange Bitcoin for cash, as well as to deposit cash to buy Bitcoin. To transfer and hold funds, users need to have a virtual wallet on their smartphone.

It’s still difficult for the average user to buy, sell, and use Bitcoin. But as startups race to make the virtual currency easier to use and popular e-commerce sites like–which has recorded $1 million in Bitcoin sales–start accepting it, wide adoption may be within sight.

Scott Robinson, the founder of the Sunnyvale, California-based Plug and Play Bitcoin Accelerator, says the Bitcoin ecosystem today is in a similar state to the Internet’s infrastructure when it was being built two decades ago.

“In more than one way, this is entirely paralleled to the Internet in the 1990s,” Robinson says. “If you can, remember how hard it was to just connect to the Internet in 1993: Set up an Internet provider account, buy a dial-up modem, download a browser, use the browser to find a search engine, or go straight to AOL’s homepage.”

The news of Bitcoin ATMs in the U.S. comes after a hectic period for the virtual currency, with one of the largest exchanges, Mt. Gox, freezing withdrawals due to a security breach. The price of Bitcoin plummeted from nearly $850 early in February to less than $580 on February 14. As of Tuesday morning, Bitcoin is hovering around $620.

12 tutorials for taking your Raspberry Pi to the limit


You’ll find that you can automate your home, design your own devices, and perhaps even save a lot of money (that is, if you don’t suddenly feel the need to buy twelve new Raspberry Pis). 

Overclock Your Pi

Normally overclocking, the process of making a computer operate more quickly or powerfully than recommended by the manufacturer, is not advised. But the Raspberry Pi Foundation knows its users too well to forbid it, and even offers suggestions on how to do it without voiding your warranty. This tutorial shares the frequencies you’ll need to know to get going.

Synced Music And Christmas Lights

A programmer known as ChivalryTimbers programmed his Raspberry Pi to synchronize MIDI music and his Christmas lights. The programmer has since linked a way to do the same process, but with the more common mp3 music format. The thorough tutorial includes everything he needed for the project, including no less than 50 feet of electrical wire. 

You can see his lights flashing to the tune of Star Wars in the video:

Humidity And Temperature Sensor

Chris Baume quickly discovered that home brewing your own beer is pretty difficult when you don’t have a thermostat in your house. So he connected his Raspberry Pi to a $2 DHT11 sensor. Now even when he’s not home, he can check the exact temperature and humidity in his brewing room via an Internet address—though, sadly, that doesn’t necessarily mean he can do anything about it if the temperature starts fluctuating.

Adafruit, an online electronics-education and parts site, also offers a tutorial for more generalized Pi humidity sensing

Weather Station

Why stop at humidity and temperature? Here’s a tutorial for programming your Pi to record everything from rainfall to wind speed by rigging it up to a Maplin weather forecaster. From there, you could even program the Pi to automatically update a website with the weather conditions. Combining both science and tech, this could make an ideal school project. 

Digital Picture Frame

  Andy Jagoe's Raspberry Pi digital photo frame. Andy Jagoe’s Raspberry Pi digital photo frame.

Instead of buying a pricey digital picture frame at your local electronics store, you can make one for half the cost and double the features with Raspberry Pi. This Instructables tutorial outlines a frame that displays not just photos, but also movies, musics, and weather reports. Better yet, project author Andy Jagoe said he built it in just a couple of hours.

Gaming Device 

First, a caveat: It’s quite illegal to emulate licensed games—and developers like Nintendo take it very seriously. But if you’re interested in playing free indie or fair use games, it’s easy to set up your Pi as a gaming console. Here are just a few free games you can legally download.

Mobile Robot

Ordinarily, getting into robotics can be a huge monetary investment. But with Raspberry Pi, you can build your own remote-control robot for $150 or less. Linux User offers detailed tutorials on both building the robot using Linux—and then writing a Python program to control it from any Internet connected device. (A digital copy of the magazine tutorial will set you back about $6, though.)

Don’t want to use Linux? Instructables offers tutorials for building Pi powered robots in both Python and ROS (Robotic Operating System). 


  A Raspberry Pi supercomputer. A Raspberry Pi supercomputer.

A single Raspberry Pi is about as powerful as a Pentium 2 with graphics on par with the original XBox. Connect 64 of them together, like one University of South Hampton professor did, and you have some serious power at your fingertips. 

Professor Simon Cox put out a tutorial on how to make a 64-node (or more) supercomputer by racking that many Raspberry Pis. One recommended technique: Build your racks from Legos.

Home Automation System

Combine a Raspberry Pi, an Arduino, and a Node.js program, and you’ve got an efficient way to control and monitor any device in your home that runs on AC power. You could turn your lights or TV on and off, or if you want to get more advanced with parts and programming, set up the Pi to turn lights off when it senses a temperature shift.

Digital Camera

Build a digital touchscreen camera for $126 and only four pieces of hardware (including your Pi) with Phil Burgess’ video tutorial on Adafruit. It’s held together with rubber bands and not exactly slick, but what’s that compared to using a camera you made with your own hands?

Touchscreen Tablet

Who needs a pricey iPad when you can build a Raspberry Pi touchscreen tablet to your exact specifications? Andre Hitchman wrote a complete tutorial for doing so with a Chalkboard Electronics touch screen. Amazingly, there are only seven steps—though, to be fair, the resulting “tablet” isn’t exactly portable, festooned as it is with lots of dangling wires and loose components.


Why pay for a landline when you have a Raspberry Pi? That’s what this tutorial argues, and it shows you how to substitute Pi and Google Voice for your current landline provider. You can make free calls, but it’s important to note that you won’t have the ability to make 911 emergency calls with this tutorial. But that’s what your smartphone is for.

So you got a Raspberry Pi: now what?

got a Raspberry Pi: now what?

When the Raspberry Pi was released earlier this year, the credit-card-sized Linux machine became an instant hit. The night it became available to order, both Premier Farnell/element14 and RS Components, the official distributors of the Pi project, exhibited the signs of a late ’90s Slashdot effect: you could barely even get the two sites to load. Fast forward to today, and you can finally get your hands on one within three weeks. The Raspberry Pi is truly the Linux device of the year, if not the past decade. Follow past the break and we’ll show you how to set yours up now that you’ve actually succeeded in snagging one.

What is the Raspberry Pi?

Initially, the Raspberry Pi was seeded out as an early developer release, with hopes of gaining early support from the development community. However, on the night of release, all distributor sites where slammed with a glut of requests. If you were lucky enough to nab one of the first units, odds are you were either amazed or utterly disappointed by what arrived in the mail.

If you were underwhelmed by the Pi, it might be that you got it for the wrong reasons. Let’s be honest: the Pi is really an educational device, meant for hobbyists and aspiring youths out there to learn about programming. It’s not meant to replace that powerhouse Linux desktop you built last summer with your savings.

Sporting a meager 256MB of RAM and a 700MHz ARM-11 processor, the Pi is a modest piece of kit. Keep in mind this chip’s main purpose is to power a cheap computer with a basic level of functionality, mainly geared towards education. The Model B also sports two USB ports, HDMI out and a 10/100 Ethernet port. For your audio needs, you’ve got a 3.5mm audio jack and that HDMI output, which also supports audio transmission. The Raspberry Pi’s GPU boasts 1 Gpixel/s, 1.5 Gtexel/s or 24 GFLOPs of general purpose compute power and is OpenGL 2.0 Compliant. In other words, it’s got the graphics power of the original Xbox.

In this article we’re going to take you through the setup steps to get your Raspberry Pi Model B up and running with Raspbian, the Debian-based Linux distro used here.

Getting your hands on one

Right now, there are two versions of the Raspberry Pi for sale—Model A and Model B, though neither is newer than the other. Model A, which is $25, lacks Ethernet capability, has a single USB connecter, and 256MB of memory. Model B, which is $35, has double the memory, Ethernet, and a dual USB connector. The B is not an improvement on A, and in fact was available first; the A is just a lighter, cheaper version. The Foundation hasn’t ruled out an eventual, more powerful Model C, but probably not for at least “two to three years.

To support the wonderful cause of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, we encourage you to grab yourself a $35 Model B Raspberry Pi from one of the distributors: Premier Farnell / element14 or RS Components.

You’ll also need the following:
▪ One SD card
▪ An SD card reader so you can write the OS image to your SD card
▪ A means of supplying power to the unit (we use an old Android phone charger). At the very least, you’ll need a 5v micro-USB adapter.
▪ An HDMI cable and HDMI-to-DVI converter if you’re using a monitor instead of a high-definition television. If you’re just using a TV or a monitor that supports HDMI, you won’t need an adapter.
▪ A USB mouse and keyboard
▪ An Ethernet cable

Optional items:
• A case to hold your Raspberry Pi
• A USB Hub if you plan on using the USB ports for more than just a mouse and keyboard

What we’re using, in case you’re wondering:
▪ A Model B Raspberry Pi
▪ A 16GB Class 10 SanDisk Ultra SDHC card (rated at 300 MB/s)
▪ An old HTC Inspire power charger
▪ A wireless Logitech K260 keyboard and mouse combo. (It only uses one of the two available USB ports.)
▪ An RJ-45 cable


Once this awesome little device arrives at your door and you’ve gathered all the necessary gear it’s time to get this Pi baked. Let’s get started.

Installing the Raspbian image to an SD Card

Now that the Raspberry Pi has been out a while, there are quite a few methods for writing the Raspbian image to your SD card, regardless of whether you’re using Windows, Mac OS X or Linux. For the purposes of this article, however, we’ll stick to the more generic methods. Specifically, we’ll be using the dd tool on OS X and Linux, and Win32DiskImager on Windows.

If you’re using a Mac:

For simplicity’s sake, we recommend you clear your Downloads folder before beginning. Then, grab the Raspbian .zip file from here. You want the latest direct download of Raspbian. You can also choose to obtain the .zip via torrent — remember to be a good web citizen and seed for a while.

Once you’ve unzipped the folder containing the software image, you’ll need the Terminal app. Assuming you’re using OS X 10.7 or later, you can launch it from Applications, and then either click Utilities (in 10.7) or Other (in 10.8). Once the Terminal App is up and running, navigate over to your Downloads folder via the command “cd ~/Downloads”:

You should now have at least two items in your Downloads folder. Verify that there’s an “.img” file as well as a “.zip” file by typing “ls”.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Now let’s focus on getting that extracted image file onto the SD card and no, you can’t just drag and drop it onto the drive. First, we need your device layout before we insert the card. So if you jumped the gun and put your card in your Mac, take a moment to remove it safely.

In the Terminal App, type: “df -h”. You should see some output like this:

Setting up your raspberry pi

Now insert your SD card and run the above command again, and note the new “/dev/disk1s1” line. Keep this handy — you’ll need to convert this to a raw disk name.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Next we need to unmount that volume so the “dd” tool will be able to write the image to the SD card. Do this via the command “sudo diskutil unmount /dev/disk1s1”. You’ll get prompted for your system password, so enter that when asked.

Setting up your raspberry pi

You should now see the last line “Volume XXX unmounted” with “XXX” being the name of your card. Now, without further ado, we can finally write the Raspbian .img file to the SD.

Remember that part where we told you to keep the disk name of your card handy? Now’s the time for the conversion. Whatever your disk was named (e.g., /dev/disk1s1), remove the “s1” and add “r” in front of “disk” so that “/dev/disk1s1” becomes “/dev/rdisk1”.

So, for instance, “/dev/disk1s1” = “/dev/rdisk1”. Make sense?

Then type the following: “sudo dd bs=1m if=2012-06-15-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/YOURDISKNAME”. Replace with your actual raw disk name — more than likely this will be /dev/rdisk1.

Setting up your raspberry pi

This will take a moment to complete. Once the “dd” command is done, safely unmount your SD card by dragging the disk image now showing on your desktop to the Trash bin.

Our prep work is finished! Skip ahead to “Booting your Pi for the first time.”

If you’re using Linux

Whichever Linux distribution you’re using, ensure you have the “dd” tool which you should have installed by default, regardless of the distro.

Some assumptions we’re making here:

1) You have sudo configured and are familiar with it.
2) You have fdisk installed (installed by default on most Linux distros).

We tested this on Ubuntu since it’s such a popular distro, and both of these are indeed present by default.

Start out by downloading the Raspbian .zip to your home directory from this location. Again, you want the latest direct download of Raspbian. Here, too, consider seeding the torrent for karma’s sake. Once you’ve downloaded the .zip file containing the Raspbian image, you’ll naturally want to unzip it.

Fire up a terminal on your Linux box and cd to your home directory via the “cd ~” command. Type “unzip”, replacing “imagename” with the actual image you just downloaded (obviously).

Setting up your raspberry pi

Next we need to determine the device name your SD card currently is using. Insert your SD Card and type “sudo fdisk -l”.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Notice the devices listed; more than likely you’ll see something like this.

Our device is “sdb,” the one with 15.9GB of space. (Obviously, it’s not our main 250GB hard drive.) Make note of the devices listed under “/dev/sdb”, as you’ll want to unmount them prior to writing the image for safety. In our case we see “/dev/sdb1” and “/dev/sdb2”, so we’ll run:

sudo umount /dev/sdb1
sudo umount /dev/sdb2

Setting up your raspberry pi

Now let’s write our image with “dd”. Type “sudo dd bs=1M if=2012-08-16-wheezy-raspbian.img of=/dev/sdb”. As we warned in the Mac how-to above, this will take a few minutes to complete.

Setting up your raspberry pi

If you see a successful write as illustrated above, move on to “Booting your Pi for the first time.”

If you’re using Windows

If you’ve got a Windows system there’s a nice little application called Win32DiskImager, which you can download here or here. Once you’ve done that, grab the Raspbian image from here. Choose the latest direct download of Raspbian.

Once you’ve downloaded both Win32DiskImager and the Raspbian image, we’ll need to unzip them. To keep things simple, extract everything to the desktop, or a folder located there, in easy reach. Unzip both and

Then insert your SD card into your reader. Make note of the drive letter. After unzipping those files and connecting your card, double-click the Win32DiskImager binary to load the program.

Setting up your raspberry pi

As soon as Win32DiskImager loads, you’ll see an error (in Windows 7, anyway).

Setting up your raspberry pi

We found this safe to ignore. Click OK and the Application will load.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Click the blue folder icon in Win32 Disk Imager and select your Raspbian image file, and ensure the Device listed is the same drive letter as your SD Card.

Once you open your image, click “Write”, click “Yes” to confirm the write and go grab a cup of coffee.

Setting up your raspberry pi

When the writing has completed, you’ll get this message, at which point it’s safe to eject your SD card.

Setting up your raspberry pi

If you happen to get stuck writing the image to your card, we recommend you head to the excellent beginners wiki found here.

Booting your Pi for the first time

The first time you boot the Raspberry Pi you’ll see a configuration tool called “raspi-config.” (If you ever need to revisit this configuration screen again, you can always call the “raspi-config” command from the terminal of your Pi.) While you’re there, you’ll need to change a few options.

Setting up your raspberry pi

First off, we need to select “expand_rootfs”. What this does is expand the installed image to use the maximum available size of your SD card. If you are using a larger card (16GB, say), you’ll definitely want to make sure you can use the full capacity, since the install image is only about 2GB.

Highlight that “expand_rootfs” option and press Enter. You’ll then see the confirmation below, at which point pressing Enter will take you back to the main raspi-config screen.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Next up is the overscan option. If you notice, the screen is not taking up the entire real estate afforded by your monitor; it’s best to disable overscan so that you can utilize your monitor or television to its entirety. If your screen looks fine, though, you can skip this step. In any case, assuming you do go through with this step, select “overscan” and press Enter.

Here you get the option to disable or enable. If you ever upgrade to a new monitor or television you may need to re-enable overscan at a later point.

Setting up your raspberry pi

After that quick step, now we want to verify our keyboard settings. If you are in America you want to change this; if you’re in Great Britain these are safe to leave at the standard config.

Select “configure_keyboard” and press Enter. Then you’ll be presented with a very long list of keyboard options. If you know your keyboard setup, select it in the list, otherwise you’ll be fine with the default 105-key option.

Setting up your raspberry pi

After selecting your keyboard type, you’ll need to specify the layout. There’s a good chance you want a different layout than English (UK), so choose “Other” and select the most appropriate option.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Setting up your raspberry pi

You’ll then be asked about modifier keys — just choose the default here, as well as “No compose key” on the next screen. If later you find you need a compose key to create alternative characters, you can return to this configuration screen by running “raspi-config”.

The last option you’ll need to set in the Keyboard configuration is the ALT / CTRL / BACKSPACE feature to kill X11. We recommend you enable this, so that in case your GUI ever crashes you can safely kill it without rebooting.

Back at the main menu, the next step is to set a user password.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Select “change_pass” and press Enter. After a confirmation screen, you’ll be prompted to choose a new UNIX user password.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Almost done now. Let’s set your “locale,” which is the general character set used by your native language. Again, if you don’t live in Great Britain, you’ll want to change this to your local character set. If you’re in the good ol’ US of A, you want en_US.UTF-8. Scroll down to your locale of choice, and de-select the en_GB option on your way. In our case, we’ll be enabling en_US.UTF-8

Setting up your raspberry pi

The next dialogue window will ask you to choose a default locale, select the locale you just chose on the previous screen and press Enter.

Back on raspi-config’s main menu, set the appropriate timezone by selecting — you guessed it — the “change_timezone” option. You’ll be presented with a list of regions first.

Setting up your raspberry pi

The next dialogue will show you a list of zones within that region. We think you know what to do here.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Back at the main setup, you can safely ignore the remaining options for now and select “Finish.” You’ll be prompted to reboot to make changes; do so. Once your system is back online, you’ll get a login prompt like so:

Setting up your raspberry pi

Your login is “pi” and the password will be what you set it to earlier.

Using your Raspberry Pi

Now that you’ve logged in to your freshly baked Raspberry Pi, the first thing you want to do is type “startx” to get your GUI environment loaded, which from here on out we’ll refer to as your Window Manager.

Setting up your raspberry pi

After a quick screen flicker you should end up with this (minus the terminal window):

Setting up your raspberry pi

Welcome to the LXDE Window Manager. LXDE is a very lightweight, full-featured UI that runs pretty well on the Raspberry Pi. If you’ve never used LXDE before, it drives very similar to Windows. If you click the lower left icon, you’ll see an application list. It works exactly how you’d expect it to.

Now what?

After you’ve got your Pi powered and the LXDE WM up and running, you essentially have a full-fledged Linux box running Debian. At this point you can browse the web with Midori, setup a webserver, or do general computing tasks.

But first, let’s talk about some utilities that are focused around what the Raspberry Pi is all about: education. Specifically, software development education.

Writing your first program on the Raspberry Pi

Raspbian comes preloaded with Python, the official programming language of the Raspberry Pi and IDLE 3, a Python Integrated Development Environment. We’re going to show you now how to get started with IDLE and write your very first, albeit simple, Python program.

When learning a new language, it’s very common to create the classic “Hello World!” program, which is what we’re going to show you how to do, but with a small twist. This Python program will ask for your name and introduce itself to you.

First, load up IDLE 3 by double-clicking the icon on your LXDE desktop.

Setting up your raspberry pi

Click File > New Window, which will then bring up a new blank window which you can type in.

Then, type the following in your new window:

#my first Python program
username = input(“Hello, I’m Raspberry Pi! What is your name? “)
print (‘Nice to meet you, ‘ + username + ‘ have a nice day!’)

Setting up your raspberry pi

Now click File > Save As and in the new dialogue window that pops up, call your file “hello” and click “Save”.

Let’s run that program you just wrote!

Click Run > Run Module or simply press F5.

When you get prompted “Hello, I’m Raspberry Pi! What is your name?” in the IDLE 3 window, type your name and press Enter. You’ll see the Raspberry Pi responds. Et voila! Not much else to it.

Setting up your raspberry pi


Your first Raspberry Pi program is, quite frankly, a very trivial start. Many more powerful applications can be written using the Python programming language. From here we recommend you take the Python tutorial over on the official Python site. If a seven-year-old can write a game on the Pi, surely you can.

When you get tired of learning Python, you may want to relax and kick back with some retro gaming. You can configure your Pi to act as a MAME Arcade Emulator and connect it to your television, as shown here. Then, once your thumbs get sore, why not head over here and install XBMC? Since the Pi is capable of playing full 1080p video, it can act as a fairly decent media center once connected to an HD television.

Of course, if you just want a cheap $35 Linux machine, the Raspberry Pi works great for that too. You’ll find it’s truly a joy to use — a hacker’s dream device with enormous possibilities. We expect to see a lot more applications for the Pi in the coming months, especially now that the Gertboard has been announced. Hopefully this article will inspire you to pick up one up and give it a try.

Financial Stability Vs. Financial Freedom



50_euro_money-1920x1080 Until a couple of years ago thought that economic stability was equal to financial freedom. And when listening to appoint Financial Freedom thought it was to have a stable job and a good salary every month secured .

A day looking for marketing books fnac I came across one that caught my attention , ” Rich Dad , Poor Dad . The rich teach their children and the poor . ” The title seemed quite sensational so do not give much credibility but how it all began to browse . In the book the author ( Robert Kiyosaki ) recounted his personal history and as since childhood was influenced by the teaching of two parents, one rich and one poor so I found attractive and I bought it .

This book has been one of my best investments . Thanks to him I learned the abysmal difference between financial stability and financial freedom , which is an asset and a liability , how the money, the importance of good training on finance and most importantly how to make the money work for you, and not vice versa.

Then I explain what is stability or financial freedom.



Throughout your life you’ve been preparing ( and you have educated ) learn to be a good employee. Learning a profession, pursue a career , making a specialty all to qualify for a good job ta do earn an excellent salary . With luck, and if you ‘ve done well today you’ll be enjoying your dream job and salary.

Spend an average 8-11 hours a day you work for the company in exchange for a fixed monthly salary, and hopefully when you ‘re 65 you will retire by staying a paid retirement.

This is more “comfortable” system we have been accepting since the industrial revolution. Just worry about fitting in and being part of the system to feel stable. You just have to turn around an economic hub ( company to work ) for 40 hours a week to have a fixed monthly salary.

Estabilidad Esconómica

Now I wonder what happens if you leave your job for a month or two , and what happens if you change your city or country ? What if your company fires you , and what happens if your company closes or goes bankrupt? . The answer is simple , LEAVE TO COLLECT YOUR MONEY . In the best case you can quickly find another job before your savings run out ( if you have them ) .


This concept but may be similar to above have great differences.
Imagine you have several real estate leased you generate a monthly income and a business which has delegated a team of professionals that keep working 40 hours a week to generate money.

It is this example the money revolves around a single axis, YOU .

Libertad Financiera

Now I ask you , What if you take a vacation of a month or two , and what happens if you change your city or country ? , What if one of your sources of money bankruptcy ? . Very simple also STILL WINNING MONEY that the worst may have to reinvest in creating or buying another source of money.

MILLION QUESTION : Financial Freedom ?

In this life to choose any of the two options is as simple as studying , learning and working to achieve it. The key to getting either situation is to ask the following:

What I really want , Economic Stability and Financial Freedom ?

When you have decided to have clear and reached 50% of your target.

If you’ve opted to Financial Freedom , the first thing you have to know is that it is an asset and a liability and know how money works . I can assure you that it is easier than you think.

Twitter Follow Button on WordPress

In any blog worth its salt is advisable to display a button ” Follow me on Twitter ” which is visible in the sidebar. Depending on the platform you use management blogs there are several ways to do this , for example, there are WordPress plugins that handle this task automatically. However, Twitter itself gives us an option to insert HTML as text widget in any sidebar. I use WordPress for many reasons, and how to insert is as follows ( in other platforms is very similar):

To get your custom button ” Follow me on Twitter ” follow these steps:

1. Access to this link to generate the HTML code for your button.

2. Select the type of button ” Follow “.



botón twitter

3. Enter your username and select the button appearance ( I like my user appears and the button is large) and language .

botón twitter 2

4. Copy the HTML code that is generated . Look at the preview of how it will look .

botón twitter 3

5. Access your blog and paste to a text widget in your sidebar (or wherever you want to include in your site / blog). This is done in WordPress:

botón twitter 4

Ready !

Look at the sidebar of my blog , just below my photo , how would . I advise to use this system because the button is quite striking , but if you see that does not work try with this code replaces ” youruser ” for your Twitter user :

Follow  @youruser”><a href=”; data-show-count=”true”> Follow @ youruser < / a>

When you find the site you want, look for something on the page that will link you to that websites RSS feed, If you have trouble finding if they provide feeds or not, you can either go to “FIND” or “SEARCH” located in your browsers toolbar and type RSS in the search box, or enter the web site address in Google and add rss after it. eg: rss

This will usually bring you to a page where you can select what rss feed you want, some sites offer multiple rss feeds so select the one you feel fits your needs.


Adding Your RSS Feed To TwitterFeed

Go back to, and create a new feed. Add Feed of your desired website that you found in previous step To Twitterfeed. For this step all you have to do is copy the url of the feed you want to use, and paste it in to twitterfeed.

Add whatever you want for the name, and in the “Blog URL or RSS Feed URL” area, copy/paste (add) the url of the rss feed you want to use.

On the same screen click the “Advanced Settings” button and go to “shorten link through”, there is a drop down box beside it, open it up and scroll to the bottom and select “Custom”, Leave it empty for now and go back to, while logged in to go to the top of the page and click Tools, on the tools page go to “API Documentation” and click.

On this page you will see a link that looks like this

# represents your id and key.


Now take your key and uid and place it in this link (replace the # with your key and uid) Must Be Replaced With %@ In order for this to work.

Also you may have noticed that in the modified link “advert_type=int” has been removed, this is because TwitterFeed has issues showing the interstitial ad (full page ad) and just leads to a dead page when clicked, or shows the ads but doesn’t redirect to the desired page, so the only way to fix this is by removing the “advert_type=int” instruction from the link and will automatically use the interstitial link instruction and will work properly with TwitterFeed.

Now when that’s done, all you have to do is copy and paste your new link into the twitterfeed Custom endpoint box and “Continue to step 2” on twitterfeed.

Make sure that you are logged in to the twitter account that you want to use with twitterfeed, you are going to want to activate your twitter account with twitterfeeds oauth so it will automatically post feed/blog updates to your twitter account using the rss feed that you provided to twitterfeed, when that’s all done, click done at the bottom, twitter will now get updated feed posts from twitterfeed, and the links in each post will now be automatically shrunk using and posted to your twitter updates, and every time someone clicks your link, you make a bit of cash.
