Lately, all over WordPress, there are these nice identical summaries of the most successful posts for 2010, which the helper monkeys were kind enough to send each blog owner. Don’t get me wrong, I like this idea and I implemented it on this blog too. It is a good chance to browse through your old posts, check the statistics and get a general idea about where you’re heading.
What I came to realize, is that I do not post often. Not as often as I would consider ideal at least. According to every pro writing tip out there, keeping a steady flow of new material, is one of the key points that will determine the success of your blog. Not the only one, not even the most important one, but a key point none the less. As you probably noticed, I don’t do that. Before you classify this as another “I wish I wrote more often whining“, let me say that the one and only reason I am not a more frequent writer, is because I am.
See, for the past few years, I’ve been a regular author at a Greek comic site, Comicdom, where (you guessed it) I write posts about comics. This blog on the other side, has seen a couple of reboots and the last time this happened, I decided I wanted to keep it a bit more “technical” and talk about my various encounters with technology and those weird machines called “computers”. I sometimes do write about other things, sure, but I would like to stay on the “information highway” for the most part.
Last time I saw WordPress’ editor, I was writing about a VIA Epia and my plans for it. I said, I wanted to set it up as a torrent client and an FTP server and I would post more on the subject. Well, I did set up an FTP Server and I did document the procedure, but I chose to do it on Instructables instead of here. I apologize for referring you to another site, but I have my reasons. You see I’ve been a member on Instructables, which I think is a wonderful site, all this time, I have borrowed ideas and techniques from other members and have not contributed even the slightest to the community. At least, I am proud for dealing with a subject not already covered, and for writing a detailed How-To and it has a good 400 views so far, so I guess I was a bit helpful to someone.
I wanted to post this here too, so there would be a conclusion to the previous post and keep things tidy in my head. I even got to setting up rtottent (a command line torrent client), but I really don’t think that this is something post-worthy.
Right now, there are a number of things waiting to happen, I don’t know how many (or if any) will be realized, therefore I will not make any announcements what so ever. Just like the title says: Little time..
