I am alive! It has been forever since I have done anything on this blog. The two loyal readers that I did have are now long gone. Consider this a rebirth of this adventure.

I have been quite busy with a lot of things…family, church, work…life and have neglected this. I want to get back into it because I want to improve my writing. I think what will work for me in the future is not so much long, narrative posts, but short bursts of goodness oozing full of flavor.

Stay tuned…


I just updated my blog to the new Tarski theme and added a custom header of the “frozen banditos” (from L2R):

  • Eeyore
  • Rabbit
  • Pooh
  • Tigger

Problogger has suggested techniques to get more comments on a blog; the short list is:

  • Invite comments
  • Ask questions
  • Be open ended
  • Interact with comments left
  • Set boundaries
  • Be humble
  • Be gracious
  • Be controversial?
  • ‘Reward’ comments
  • Make it easy to comment

Jakob Neilsen suggests that of the traffic to any website:

“90% of users are lurkers who never contribute, 9% of users contribute a little, and 1% of users account for almost all the action.”

My stats thus far would sound a loud “here, here” with both problogger and Mr. Nielsen.

I have been away for a few days. Took the family to Florida for a funeral. The reason for the trip was not good, but the fellowship with friends and family in their time of grief was.

Be back soon.
