Hey everyone, I’m sorry the blog has been so slow in the last month. All I seem to have here are posts apologising for not having done anything substantial in the last month… so another one can’t hurt right? 🙂
The Linux Planet connection seems to have gone quiet and my emails are not getting any replies so I’m not sure what’s happening with that. I’ve decided however that maybe this writing stuff would a nice way to earn a living or at least pay some bills and I’ll be looking for publications or sites that might take my ariticles. Time to get pimping I suppose.
I have some ideas for increasing the volume of posts here and I wanted to run them by people and see what you think. I used to post news items and big developments in the open source world with a bit of opinion, that was before I got heavily into the reviews. I got a massive traffic bump after the reviews started hitting Distrowatch and I stopped doing the other stuff as I thought people weren’t coming here for that and besides there are a million other sites out there with news on them. I think maybe a weekly round up of what I see as the big stories and what I think about them might be a good way to make the blog tick over a bit better. Would anyone be interested in that or would you prefer I just stick to reviews and post less frequently? Please drop me a comment if you have an opinion on it, your help is greatly appreciated.
I also have some interesting stories of what I’ve been up to that I could post, I recently reinstalled Ubuntu on my laptop while in the middle of the Irish Sea. I was in the bar of a ferry from the Isle Of Man and I plan to post that aneqdote with pictures soon. If there’s anything you would like to see here or maybe not see feel free to chip in. Thanks guys
