100 Posts and Keeping it Real

I was saved from posting a mistake by my computer crashing and losing a post.
I had worked up a look at my past 100 blogposts looking at the different analytics view of my first one hundred posts.
You can imagine how tweaked I was.
That was a lot of work, but it was flushed by a recalcitrant computer. Thank god!
I hadn't paid much attention to my analytics. Sure, I saw them in passing, but honestly, I was only really doing what I had been told. When it comes to what I write, I really go with my gut. Sure I try to comment on current stuff, but that is not really designed to get traffic, just to be timely. For my purposes as much as anything else.
Personal blogs should be fairly free of worry about what SEO and traffic building techniques should be used. 
I guess you can't ignore them, but the reality is if you are not writing about what you like, it is going to be fairly lost to readers anyway no matter how many there are.

Slow Death or Rebirth for Myspace?

  Are we really watching the slow inevitable death of Myspace? With the integration with Facebook complete and  the push towards what appears to be a mobile only function , isn't it time to call this one? One report says that Myspace is making $200 million less this year. They are functionally giving up on Myspace Music , which was always their bread and butter.

Only bands and their most ardent fans go there. The rest are on Facebook.  There is talk of selling Myspace, but who in their right mind would consider it? This will have some interesting implications for bands down the road. Many use Myspace as their de facto website, just pushing their domain name onto the customizable site. Now apparently, Reverbnation , a North Carolin

Being a Parent

While back, I wrote a post on Father's day about being a father and how being a parent is a job. I wistfully look back as I look forward to another school year quickly approaching and the evidence of my "work" is becoming less and less my handiwork. Our youngest has just moved on to middle school. Josh has moved into high school and the oldest has graduated from high school and about "start" her life. We've had a tacit arrangement with the kids. We do NOT want boomerang kids coming back to haunt us. So they have always been told, they are staying with us until they are REALLY ready to go out and that includes the joke that college has become. Sadly, despite the fact that I have spent a good chunk of my career working in higher education, I know that it is a folly to think that sending a child off to college is preparing them for much other than to have a lifetime of loans. Thankfully, Amanda has gotten the message. She has a plan to go to local c
