Work has been pretty hectic lately, and after spending 8+ hours behind the comp working to stay ahead of the deadline, I didn’t feel like spending some more hours behind it once I got home.
The result? A shitload of rss feeds I need to catch up to, and no blogposts for over a week. “Mark all as read” is something that takes care of that rss problem (for some feeds I’m certainly going to be using that) and when it comes down to blogposts… I’ll start again with this one. Yay!
I checked my stats just now to see if this lack of posting would have any effect on the number of hits a day I get, and heck, it really does. I didn’t think it would be that noticeable, but since my posting rate has been down in the last month or so, with at least a week inbetween posts, stats have really dropped.
Anyway, time to gear up again and posts some (hopefully) interesting stuff for the lot of you to enjoy.
I’m thinking about doing a restyling of the site as well btw, but that might take a while until it’s finally done, since I haven’t made up my mind yet on how I want it to look exactly (I’m not really a graphics artists either) and what I want to show.
I’m thinking about cutting back the number of posts on the front page, and ditching any gimmicks or excess link sections. I doubt anyone reads these anyway. Doesn’t everyone just track feeds nowadays, or use the search bar?
I’d love to hear your thoughts about this, it’ll be interesting to hear how other people use this blog, or any blog for that matter.
For now there are two blogs, both by guys named Matt, that have layouts I’d like to euhm.. borrow some ideas from.
Those sites are from webdesigner Matt Brett, and WordPress developer (bigup!) Matthew Mullenweg.
Check em for some sweet designs.
