Site Update


I opened this site back in January of 08, at the time of writing this around 6 months has passed and there are around 300 posts, 100 non spam comments and countless spam comments. I have just gone over 3000 hits, a Google PageRank of 3 and Technorati authority of 10. For my first soiree into the blogosphere I don’t think this is too bad. There is no way I have invested as much time into the site as I would have originally liked to. The early plan to do a overhaul of the skin has constantly been put on the back burner, where I suspect it will stay for a number of months yet. Logo needs to change too, but again, its finding time when I feel creative and up for it.

Only major change recently, you may have noticed, that I have turned off the daily Twitter overview post. Partly because I got bored of it, partly because it showcased how infrequently I was actually posting and partly because it’s not fair on Jaiku! I can’t believe anyone wants these back right?

Current goals, increase post frequency and get up to PR 4/5. Oh, and of course I am still trying to overtake that other Colin Mercer, the bugger who comes ahead of me on a Google search on my name. Damn scholars!

I guess, another update in 6 months or so…
