There's a saying that describes a websites popularity / significance, "Content is King!" What makes one website more popular than another is the content. As a result, no good content equals no-one visiting your site. MySpace offers a great example; the web-sites looks and acts like it was designed in 1990. I swear they make their layout super confusing just so your eyes spend more time exposed to their advertisements. Despite MySpace's technical problems, it has the content (Millions of underage boys and girls posting half naked pictures of themselves).
For the past few months I've spent little free time putting posts together for G-town. I'm not saying I'll have a post a day from now till the rest of the year. I'm just trying to segway to the graphic showing visit and views to the blog over the last 12 months. Now August just began so I cut that out of the chart, but the trend is clear... the blog is loosing interest which is closely tied to the frequency of posts.
I've been using the goolge notebook extension for firefox to capture / clip headlines, pictures, anything on a webpage. It's a really great tool that I wish had in gradschool... it's a perfect research tool that goes a lot farther than just bookmarking webpages. Since it's a web-app everything you capture is available to you from any computer. (Note: This requires google gears... their little programing API)
Anyway I'll be dusting off some stuff from the notebook over the next few weeks. Maybe that content will bring more people to G-town?
