One month on…

Just over a month ago I started this little old blog and I’ve managed to update it nearly everyday with a total of over 40 posts. I’m surprised actually that I’ve been able to write so much drivel in such a short space of time. 

The main reason for doing this is because I want to improve my writing. I’ve never been particularly good at it and the only way to get better is to practice. Ok, so its a more chatty, informal style of writing but its a step in the right direction.

There are also a few blog related things I’m interested in exploring. One in particular is what search engines pick up on and what kind of content people search for. The Citrix articles have been popular, as has the WordPress editor error I had. Its a pity I didn’t have a fix for that since it is a pretty useless post. Might be worth following that up.

Its odd actually what people search for. “punch an enemy” was one such entry. What were you looking for?! I was also dismayed to find that blog spammers not only post sh*t to your blog but then search it a few hours later to see if their posts have gone through! Cheeky bastards!

I’ve realised the power of blogs from a first hand perspective. I didn’t expect feedback about TopDesk, but that serves me right for leaving a pingback on Scott Hanselman’s blog (it wasn’t me, it was WordPress!). I am interested to see where it leads though, I’ve left some further comments and not gotten a reply (yet).

All in all, a fun first month. So heres to another month!

[…] Paul reminded me that it’s now over a month that I relaunched my website and started blogging – and I still hate the term. It’s interesting to see that all previous version of my website have been updated on a monthly basis, if even that even, but with my new site I update almost daily. I don’t really know the exact reasons for this myself but can tell you of some that definatly play a part. […]
