Well I've found the answer is really in Networking. You need to find friends who have similar interests as you and keep in communication with them. One way I share the things that are going on in life is through creating an Almost daily Vlog. What is a Vlog? Well it is basically a video journal of your life. Typically about a topic that is important to you or just random things done throughout the day.
One of the tools I'm starting to implement in my Blogs are the use of Buttons. There is a Great blog already written about how to build your own buttons with hyper links so I will refer you to their blog and let them get the credit for that. While this one is just talking about how to put your friends button on your site.

I actually will just post a video I made since I think seeing something done is easier than reading about how to do it. Seriously,,, how many instruction booklets come without pictures? <--- only the bad books.
And here is the Blog Link that talks about writing the actual code: Oikology 101
