Hi,

After a lot of frustration with Wordpress, I have decided to set up my own blog. I coded it in Microsoft Expression Web which I must say is a pretty good tool :D

Anyway, I'm just looking for some more advice (i'mnot a great webdesigner) and some constructive criticism or suggestions or whetever :)

Address : Hougtimodesigns.com

Thanks
HougTimo

I think he means too many people have them and most talk crap about their lives that people couldn't care less about (at least mine did when I had one!). Basically, there are too many blogs about. Just because one person has to have one it doesnt mean you do.

Just my 2p.

I said that with mine, but I still never updated it, just like I rarely update the news. I used to swear to do it once a week, now its once every month or two.

You'll get bored of it eventually just like me :)

As annoying as blogs are, they attract search engines like wildfire if you edit them continuously. On the opposite end, words such as "forum" keep search engines away. Just something to note.

Well so far Ive had a blog for 1.5 years, and not given it up yet ;)

The ads are a good idea, but I dont wanna make it look messy with them. For ads, I generally set up a load of landing pages with them on. Very simple and a nice little earner :)

Bit of an update. I am now mirroring nLite and vLite on my site / server. the downloads should top at about 1mb/s so it should be fast enough for ya :)

If anyone else wants any projects hosting, I will also gladly oblige

Thanks

HougTimo
