No Update Today.

Hey everyone,Unfortunately no new stuff today, on account of me being absolutely knackered.

First of all, if this is your first visit, look to the right. You'll find links to everything I've written right there. Have a browse, and be sure to read "It's a Man's World"...from the emails I've been recieveing, it's by far the most popular. (closely followed by "When Prophets turn to Profits.) Have a read, they''re fun...even if I do say so myself.

I'm also considering slowing down from writing a new post every day to about three or four times a week. I'm updating so often that the articles are only staying on the front page for a couple of days, meaning people aren't getting a chance to read them. (According to my visit stats, all my non-regular readers are spending an average of half an hour to an hour on this site, but reading only the front page.) So I have the curious problem of about 20 people reading everything, and about 200 more who only read the last 2 posts.

As you know my blog is bare minimum and non-flashy. Anyone who's browsed blogsites and come across one that is nothing but weird pictures and bad midi music will know why ;-). I just have white words on a black background. I think newbies to blogs where arriving here, dragging down to the bottom of the screen and assuming everything on the front page was a single post, saying "Bugger that!" and on to the next blog.

So, for the sake of people actually reading what I write, I'm going to slow down.

If you read this blog and like it, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I'll be quite happy to continue posting every day if that's the general consensus.

All you have to do is click the word 'comments' below, click 'anonymous' if you don't have a user ID, and leave a message.

In closing I'd like to thank everyone who has managed to get this site past 200 visitors in its first week on the net. For a site that isn't on any search engines yet, and hasn't been advertised whatsoever, that's quite an achievement.

Thanks!

I don't know how you've found the time and inspiration to keep it going everyday so far anyway....if you need to slow it down to keep the material funny, then so be it. I'll keep checking everyday anyway...

I agree- I look forward to coming home from work and reading your posts- but if you have to slow down, I guess we will enjoy them even MORE when you DO update for us!
