Improving the blog

Well, this blog has been up for about 9 months now and I have over 50 posts. I don't know how many "regular" readers I may have, but if you are reading my blog, I'm looking for comments and criticisms (constructive) about it. I believe that I can do a better job with the blog, and I think the best way is to get others to critique what you are doing. So how's my grammar? What can I do to make the posts easier to read? Are the posts too long or too short? Here's the big one, do I stay on topic?

I've read a few How to blog blogs and tried to pick out the and apply the good stuff.

I really am interested in hearing what you have to say. I know Andy Warren has asked a similar thing in his blog, of course I'm not offering anything in return. You can post a comment on the blog or if you don't want to criticize me publicly you can email me at

Thanks in advance, and don't worry you won't hurt my feelings.


  1. Aesthetic suggestion: change your RSS feed to include the full text of the post.

  2. Done. The ironic thing is I can't stand other blogs that don't include the full post. I'd never looked at the feed before.

  3. I haven't a clue, but if you get a really good piece of knowledge on this, let me know so I can use it on my blog too.

  4. Settings | Site Feed, first item is full.


So what do you think I am?
