Knock, knock...

When I started this blog about a month and a half back, little did I realise the amount of effort one needs to put in to keep it active and interesting so that it continues to attract those eye-balls! (Is there an equivalent of a TRP rating for a blog?). One has to fold this time in along with the time one spends (or expected to spend ;-) )doing one 'real' work and it all adds up. Additionally I have well meaning friends with their own blogs who knock on my window (metaphorically mercifully since they live in a different city) asking me to wake up and keep the blog alive. As a result, as Calvin would say, 'The days are just packed!'. So here is something on Symbolic Manipulation Packages that I have anyway been meaning to write about for some time, entitled 'Socialist' Software - it has a bit of nostalgia associated with it which I hope you will forgive.

And here I was thinking it was art for art's sake :)

There's Technorati, among others. Most people who know about your blog will get updates via their feedreader (bloglines, google reader or some desktop program), so will read your blog whether you update it daily or not.

Yes, it is a lot of effort keeping a blog alive. Tell me about it! But there is always someone who benefits from useful blogs. And, yes, it is primarily for the blogger him(her)self.

Someday soon, RSS feed ranking will also be in.

Hi, I read your blog from a feed reader, and I dont think this could be reflected from the page index counter or stat counter etc.
