  • I know that you say you've now closed your blog, but I think you are giving up too soon. You had a couple of good posts (such the Moose dissection), and more stuff like that would be nice.

    The one line announcements you post to use.perl aren't compelling, so maybe you could write more than that you have a new post to interest people in following the link. To get your blog noticed, you have to talk about it (not just mention it) everywhere. Comment on other people's blogs that you found the solution to their

    • True; I'm impatient and easily frustrated. And I did not know about Perlsphere. And your idea about promoting via comments on other blogs is interesting; I hadn't thought about that. But then, like I said, I didn't want to link-spam just to get noticed.

      And I see your point about the non-compelling one-liners, however I believe the objective - as expressed in perlbuzz and by Schwern - was to have more Perl sites. My posts weren't that long to begin with, so to excerpt them to get people to look at the blog i

      • I've started to write a longer post about it in my blog [szabgab.com] but right now I am quite busy with other stuff so I say just a few words, though I might just repeat what brian d foy [perl.org] said.
        • Don't be afraid from some level of cross posting, that is post here links here and elsewhere to your blog.
        • Sometimes post here a full entry with links to your blog.
        • Write stuff that is interesting to you.
        • Link to other places.
        • Ask others (even in e-mail) to link to your site/blog whatever.
        • Lots of patience.
        • People are busy. Often they don't have time to read your blog.
        • Don't expect too much.
        • There are so many site out there now. Most of them with bad content but its hard to get noticed and get (blogging) reputation even if your posts are good.
        • Put a link to your blog in your e-mail signature.
        • There are alway going to be people who will criticize you about posting links to your blog and spamming. We just have to live with that.

        In the end you want your blog to get noticed. At first you'll have to post here too and link to your blog.

        oh, lucky I did not have more time to write :-)
