Articles in the Webmaster Category
Browsing the net as I usually do particularly considering I have no friends, or social network that doesn’t consist of ones and zero’s I had another realization that is so startling you probably should sit down to read this, (who the hell stands up whilst using a computer anyway?). Everyone online (particularly in regards to blogging) has become complete and utter pansy’s too afraid to say no, and completely unable to remove their head from each others asses. I have a theory that if the most popular bloggers began preaching the world is flat, there would be some boats falling off the edge of the world, and low level bloggers everywhere saying “I told you so”.
One of my favorite bloggers, Daniel Scocco from dailyblogtips.com sent me an email with the above subject line. Unfortunately the link Daniel provided was to his new website which is targeted toward new webmasters setting up a website and to be frank, lacks substance. This lackadaisical approach towards a mailing list raises some interesting point for me, Daniel, George W Bush, the Inuits, and anyone else who currently has a mailing list.

So it seems the internet has judged me and emphatically judged me as someone not worth listening too. Of course I am referring to my distinct lack of RSS subscribers to this blog. Before you say anything, I am well aware that its not my fault that there is a lack of subscribers, it must be a simple tip, or piece of code that I am not implementing properly. So knowing this I have launched this series in a quest to find out the issue that is handicapping my exponential growth in subscribers and popularity.
I know it somewhat ironic (or perhaps it should be hypocritical) for a socially reclusive human being such as myself to be commenting on social conventions and social networks. But believe it or not, I actually have a facebook account and have more than 1 friend on it. This makes me infinitely more popular than George W Bush and puts me in a unique perspective to comment on this social phenomenon or abnormality.
As a blogger I aim to reach the dizzying heights that some bloggers have achieved. Bloggers like Yaro Starok and Darren Rowse who make a comfortable living doing what they love and whose knowledge of all things blogging can never be questioned. But how is it possible for the average blogger to achieve success when they can’t honestly say they are the most knowledgeble person in thier niche. In fact there are probably hundreds of people who contain more knowledge in thier niche so why would anyone care about what they have to say?
Did you here the internet is a big place? In fact it is a really, really big place, way bigger than Texas. My friend Kevin is going to go through every single page to make sure there is no naughty stuff for kids to see. He estimates it will take a few weeks but according to Bing, reading every page on the internet is estimated to take 6 million years with over one trillion web pages in existence. So while Kevin prays for some serious advances in medical technologies and the fact that the internet will not have a single change for the next 6 million years, I can’t help but think how easy it would be for internet users to not see my website (despite how awesome it obviously is).

I have been having a bit of fun lately taking the mickey out of a few people and products online. Some of the claims are simply astonishing and when logic prevails the claims fall to pieces. Now this blog is somewhat dedicated to searching for, and testing these products and systems that are available. That being the case its obvious I believe that some of the things online are worth buying (although its getting harder to find). But My God there is some serious rubbish online and enough gullible and optimistic webmasters to keep these completely useless and crappy products and services appearing online.
Thankyou for sending the same comment on everysingle one of my posts. I can only assume that you really like my work and every post on the site particularly because you mention you like my writing style every time. However when I went to reciprocate the favour your site featured pictures of naked women. Were you aware of this? Some of the pictures even have women and men trying to make babies. I was horrified and after searching through every page on your site for a contact page or exit button, I finally managed to close down the site after running out of moisteriser and tissues.
