    Saving the blog from a death 

    Looking back at my last post about where I discussed the problem with my blog as it stands where it did not get updated for a long period of time.  This was mostly because of the want for this blog to be somewhat of a blog that “I would want to read.”  I my case this end up being a tech blog.  I also noticed the other blog post that would be completely off topic.

    I wrote that first paragraph for two reasons, the first being that I had time, and the second was that after that last post that I had it felt like the blog had died.  To me, this was a message that made me think about what I was writing to my audience.

    From the tracking system I am pleased to announce that is appears that this blog is not read at all.  So this gives at least me the idea the blogs are not for other to read (expect in rare cases) but for one to write, and then, as I said before, once and a while a random blog will have something useful, but one will find it not because they read that blog on a daily bases but because they can use a search engine to quickly find what they are looking for.  The blog only gives a way to quickly write document that can posted online with little effort.

    Having said that this blog is not read (which is what the tracking system is saying) the most popular page on my site is the unPacker and that has a steady supply of people going to that page every day now.  This is also the most linked page on my site.  What I find so funny about the fact that the unPacker is the most popular page is that I only made it in response to a forum posting in which the first version of this I made in under 1 hour.  Then when I had a large number of people coming to that page on a daily bases my friend wanted to upgrade the layout on that page, and I have keep upgrade that system ever since.  Now the code is at version 1.2 and I have moved the page layout over the 960.gs along with the rest of the the site.

    The main purpose of this blog post is for me not to have had the last post on such a down beat.

    Also if you would like to follow the tech part of this blog yo u can get the rss feed off on of the topics that I use quite a bit and am vary good about what articles go where.

    What to blog 

    For some time I have tried to make a blog about what I found useful or cool. But from what I can tell no reads this blog with any real dedication. Which makes me prompt the question to myself that if I should just start writing more on the blog just so that they are so few post or if I should try and keep with I was doing with wring useful content.
    Looking back at what I have there is some tech stuff (like from the blogs that I read) but then mixed in there is the random parts from my life mixed in.
    If you read for the tech then you would care non for what is about me and visa versa.
    I think about the random blogs that I find are from Google and have that one post that makes the blog useful to me, but most of the other stuff is lost one for lack of interest on that topic. I think that a blog for the most part is not something that is followed via rss feed but is used to keep up to date website with little effort and have a way for users to give feed back to the author and the blog are found from Google.

    In summary: write more post on more topics and get more exposure on Google.

    WordPress 

    Now I have moved my site and Blog over to WordPress.  When looking at my home page, I saw that it was doing a ajax load of the rss feed from my blog, as I had set up.  I noticed that I had very little content to put on the home page.  I did not start out this site with the plan that the home page would be a blog, but that is what it became.  And so now I am using wordpress with its cms to run this site.  I still have the files that were from before, such as the unPacker.

    If you are thinking of trying wordpress, I would recommend it to my more technical friend.  This is only because I made my own theme based on what it looked like from before, but I am really liking wordpress and am finding the very easy to use.

    960 

    I have update the home page of my site using the Css framework 960 to organize all of the content on the home page from before when it was a mess. I have also made a new color them using white, black, orange, and gray on this page. I think that it looks a lot better. Tell me what you think in a reply.
