About Elijah Manor

Thanks for clicking the URL from my Twitter account. If you haven't already, I’d love to connect with you via my @elijahmanor twitter account.

Instead of just launching you into one of my websites... I thought I'd give you a little background on who I am and what I do.

I am a Christian married to my wonderful wife, Andrea. We are blessed to have two children Abby (3 years) and Enoch (9 months). I attend the Fellowship Bible Church in Brentwood, TN and I work for Compuware as a consultant developing Web Applications using Microsoft ASP.NET 3.5, MVC, AJAX, jQuery, Silverlight, and the works!

If you haven't noticed already I'm kind of a Twitterholic and I tend to tweet quite often on Twitter. I have recieved a Nuclear Follow Cost on more than one occasion.

I am aware that not all my followers are .NET fanatics, so I try to spread out non-.NET tweets throughout the day as well. I loosely try to stick with this schedule during business hours...

  • 1 tweet per hour (7:00am, 8:00am, etc...) about topics such as ASP.NET, ASP.NET MVC, Silverlight, etc...
  • 1 tweet per hour (7:30am, 8:30am, etc...) about topics such as jQuery, JavaScript, CSS, etc...

Many people ask me how in the world do I tweet all the time? Well, the trick is that I don't :) Every night or early in the morning I sift through my hundreds of RSS feeds, sort through several topic streams in Twitter using TweetGrid, and compile a list of resources I find most helpful. I then schedule out these tweets using Tweetlicious.

If you are interested in following me, but are leary because of the volume of my tweets, then you may want to consider one of the following options.

  • Search for my technical tweets on Twitter anytime you want
  • Add an RSS feed via Twitter to my technical tweets
  • Or check out my delicious account where I automatically post my tech tweets

Thanks for visiting my about page. If you’ve not already don’t forget to follow me on Twitter so we can interact there.

  5. Hi Elijah,

    I am a Christian in New York seeking a developer like yourself to help with a new initiative within my company.

    I am looking for someone to develop an RIA or otherwise that is an extension of my company's site.

    The company is a global executive relocation portal working only with multi national corporations and have been successful in this field.

    If you are interested in working on new projects either as a consultant or as an actual developer I would be interested in talking with you. I think what I want to develop is exciting, an industry original and will be successful.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

  7. Very interesting tweets. I especially like the fact that they are scheduled. Takes away from your props but very clever.

  8. Elija,
    I wish you wouldn't use http://ow.ly to post your links on twitter.

    Two reasons:
    1. Practical: I like to bookmark them and want to bookmark the original page, not an http://ow.ly URL.

    2. Ethical: I don't think it is ethical for http://ow.ly to basically steal content from other sites an present it under their URL as if it is their content.l

  14. Eck - I accidentally hit "block" instead of "follow" on your twitter request... and that seems to have bounced your follow... sorry 'bout that - retry and should be fine now.
