Wanted Ad for Blogging Times
Wanted: good blogs to read and readers for my blog
My biggest challenges in blogging are finding good blogs to read and getting discussions started at my blog. I visit lots of blogs only to discover they aren’t being updated anyone or are long since defunct. The percentage of blogs that last over six months must be small (~5%?) for all the abandoned ones I’ve seen. To avoid these blogs, I use link exchanges and the Truth Laid Bear site. Unfortunately, I haven’t found any shortcuts for finding blogs with subjects I like short of scanning lots of them. At the end of this search, I find only a few percent of blogs that are currently maintained about subjects of interest to me with authors that communicate with their readers.
Bringing in reading and getting discussions started at my blog will be much longer process. It doesn’t look like many of them get off the ground until at least a couple of months. I suspect my topics and style are an unusual taste and it will take me even longer. I found a couple of articles by fellow bloggers with their tips (Blog Traffic and Blogging Thoughts).
I’ve decided I like cascading style sheets (css) especially since they lets me do digressions. It only takes a few lines of code. Its form matches its function and it getts smaller for each level of digression By the third level of digression you can barely read it which it just as it should be. This decreasing size shows how it is less relevant and makes it easier to skip. and a span for each digression. Sometimes small things are so amusing.
