People say blogging is dead, well I say phooey! Last night I passed 320,000 total page views for NorthstarNerd.Org. Over the years I have posted 1,059 times for an average read per page of 302 views. I would say that's not bad for a nerd from northern Minnesota!
Seriously, while everyone else tweats in small bursts of limited value, give some thought to the traditional blog. If you invest the time, the payback is HUGE. Via NorthstarNerd.Org I have met some amazing people, and learned valuable knowledge ... both via the effort of posting and the community which interacts with me.
For this 1,060th post I would like to add some value beyond just an opinion. As stated previously, one solid advantage of this blog is the ability to keep learning. One resource which I've found recently particularily useful is MakeUseOf.Com. This site constantly provides updates with usefil tips about optimizing your use of technology. In addition, they have a great page of End User Guides (downloadable free pdf's) which range from digitial photography to LINUX. I've directly linked their iPad guide (28 pages) on my site as an example (screenshot of cover given below).
Will you be my 320,001st viewer? Stop by NorthstarNerd.Org and leave me a comment! What do you like about this domain? What could I do better? Thanks for your visit!
