Personal Update (April 24th)

Hello Everyone, just doing a little update for all my followers and viewers. Haven't been able to make as many post as i would like, i started this project back when i had time off work and now I'm working on finding a balance between working on my blog and other commitments i have. Most people people think that blogging is just as easy as having a idea and writing a little blurb about it and that all you need to do. But there is much more work that goes into creating and running a successful blog then that, there this the task of driving traffic, getting and keeping viewers, and how to use social networking and other tools to get new viewers. Most people just don't understand the work that goes into running a web site whether its a blog or another site. I would love to turn this hobby into something i could do as a full time job, but i don't want to look at it as just a revenue source but as a way to provide information from my own perspective, i will be working on creating a more structured posting schedule on different topics and i thank all of you that have followed my blog and stuck with me during this learning time and hope you will stay with me as i shape my blog into a source of information for all thoughts like me.

Work Update

So things are starting to pick up,  Going back to the 9 to 5 day job.  And have been working with some friends on marketing for a computer repair company, along with trying to drive traffic to this blog,  It has been a lot of work trying to find out how to get new viewers and keeping old ones,  I find my self spending hours a day working away on my laptop working for the views,  but it looks like it is slowly working,  just need to see how its going to go in the long run and try to get growth that will stay steady and bring return users.

TweetDeck (Review)

Over the last few days I have come to the point were I have to many tweets coming in at the same time that using the web interface was not working for me any more, so I went out and downloaded TweetDeck so I had a stand alone program to manage all of the post coming in.  Now it has been a long road to get everything working and I have finally come to the point that I can tell you guys about it.  TweetDeck is nice that I can take the groups I have already set up and show each one in there own column so I can keep track of everything by a simple category,  this lets me know that I'm reading my fellow blogger's tweets, or technology news.  This has given me so many different options to go over all of the information that is being presented.  But even though this new setup has let me actually go over all of the information it still has its draw backs, it dose not always load tweets right as they happen so you may be slightly behind, and it has had a few problems posting from the API. but as a viewer it is great that it gives me so many options to break down the information and go over it.  I would recommend that my fellow blogger's give it a try.


Web Stats (Blogger vs. Analytics)

So I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but I use both Google Analytic's and bloggers built in version, and they never match up.  I'm not sure witch one is correct, I find that bloggers stats seem like they group in days and its not completely accurate at tracking when a view happens.  Anyone else notice this?

Hello Everyone,  Yesterday turned out to be my day of rest and I didn't get on to make any new posts or promote my blog and I figured that would mean only a few views but I got quite a few for not being online,  thanks to everyone who is following my blog and the is sure to be more to come.  Ill be working on some new posts today so the should be 3 or 4 new posts today that I have been meaning to put up.
