Problems With YOUR Blog

The 12 biggest problems with your blog makes some good points:

  • 2) Repetitious redundancy: I try to not post information that I see clogging up every site I visit, unless I like it a lot.
  • 3) Frequency over quality: I’ve been doing this too much (as proven by today’s posts). I have a desire to post something everyday; I gotta get over that.
  • 9) Proofing you’re grammer spelling: Funny.

  1. I like his final statement about the definition of “Blog”. He suggests the word vernacular but somehow I don’t see that word catching on.

  2. I think that “quality over quantity” thing is bullshit. It’s a freakin’ blog site, not some online thesis. Chances are what one person thinks is quality another thinks is crap.. The only way to please everyone is to include a variety of different topics that all interest you and spam em out to the world.

  3. I agree, except I think I AM too quick to post stuff I know is crap, stuff I spend 10 seconds looking at, thinking it was a good waste of 10 seconds, so let’s share it. Some people, although, post 10+ entries a day, most of which I have no interest in, so I am selective about what I post.

    I think I need to find a shtick, something that this site gets known for, instead of just random postings.

  4. For “quality over quantity” I think Pender’s right that it’s going to be subjective often but I don’t think the point is to write masterpieces every entry but to resist the temptation to post things like: “I’m sure sleepy today; aren’t kittens cute?” It’s too easy to find that kind of entry out there. People post things you wouldn’t even bother calling best friend to say, but somehow it’s important enough to share with the whole world.

    There’s a secret note on that page you can find by clicking on the “Powered by…” logo. Part of it goes:

    Also, I am sincerely amazed almost every time I go looking by how many
    interesting people are keeping cool, well written sites and journals.
    Everything above aside, it’s nobody’s business what you want to write
    or how you want to say it. Just yours.

    I’m guilty of that, but I know some family and friends who read this would find these posts amusing or interesting. I started this site KNOWING only people I knew would be reading it, and never thought about making it publicly interesting (and if it is, great).

    Huh?

  6. I could find the “Powered By…” logo, but couldn’t find the secret note. This is fun though, kinda like a scavenger hunt.

  7. > I started this site KNOWING only people I knew would be reading it
    Well, I guess this is sort of an informal introduction…

    > I could find the “Powered By…” logo, but couldn’t find the secret note.
    Try clicking on it and checking the rest of the screen. If it doesn’t work, it’s a testimony to the platform dependence of javascript, the browser dependence of css, or the IQ/caffeine deficiency of the developer (NB: some are regular links).

    > Ashley, are you hot?
    Or not. Talk about subjective.

  8. LOL….sounds like she knows what she’s talking about. However, I don’t think JavaScript is platform dependant. Style Sheets are definitely browser dependant, but I’m running the latest version of IE so I know that’s not the case. It definitely had nothing to do with lack of developer skills, but moreso the skills of the person browsing the page.

    When I noticed that the logo was not a hyperlink, I immediately waived my right to click it. Upon reflection (and reading your last post), I decided to click the damn logo.

    Low & behold, I now see the hidden message!

    View source, it’ll be much easier to find the freakin’ message.
