Got to be better than the Portland rapid transit. Use to take an hour for a 20 mile journey, but that goes downtown. Only place the train seems to go fast is through the tunnels because I guess they are afraid they will run over somebody (who should probably be run over for being stupid) on the areas that are dedicated to the train. There are also quite a number of hairpin turns, which are just stupid.
Today i feel a little depressed my blog has been for a year and a half and only have 11 followers. and 11000 views.
please this post goes for my friends in the lounge, the regular people that actually takes time to reply everything I post.
if you become a follower It will be great
Ive never quite got this aspect of "blogs". Sure they can be a useful resource, when I search for a specific problem, teh goog will often find some info posted by some helpful soul on his blog. But do you really expect that im going to subscribe in some way to your techno-rambling and come back every day just to discover what brain-ehancing wizardry you've been up to today?
Sorry, no. Aint going to happen unless you really are a true industry leader (likes of Jon Skeet, Eric Lippert et al). Im sorry to say that to 99.999999999999999999% of the developer community what you write on a daily/weekly basis is hogwash.
Well, I'm one of those 11000 views. I've looked at a few of the things you've posted. I haven't found them too bad, but as they weren't "on topic" for me at the time, it wasn't something I'd want to subscribe to. To be honest, you don't have enough content on there, and you don't post regularly enough to warrant having followers yet.

You don't post to a blog to get followers. You post to a blog to document what you're thinking and doing FOR YOURSELF. If people happen to stumble upon it, great. If they post a comment, even better. You might get some constructive feedback. But, to think that because you speak every should just flock to you and listen is ridiculous. You're posting for that wrong reasons.
