Email alerts.

Just thought a quick apology was required to the people who have posted comments here - and then not heard a single response from me!

I've only just discovered where the check box was to set email alerts whenever someone else posts.

It's the first lunchtime I've been sitting at my desk and had an opportunity to look at the Blogger settings since I launched the thing a few months back.

And who knows, tomorrow I may even get a chance to set up the links for RSS feeds, My Yahoo etc. I've already got Feedburner installed. I just need to find out how it works now!

I've also managed to look at the stats very quickly and was surprised to see that people do actually pop in here from time-to-time. Not only that, I discovered that three people found the site searching at Google for Dave Naylor. One person found their way here searching for Andy Atkins Kruger. And 12 people found their way here searching for www.mikegrehan.com

I mean, I'm all for convenience myself. But it's just as easy to type that into your browser address bar as it is in Google's search box - yes? (For the record most visitors come from searches on mike grehan or mike grehan blog and the rest come from various forums).

Anyway, blogging certainly takes up your time. Actually, for anyone who may be passing and knows about these things...

If you have a blog where people can post comments relating to an entry... And like some other bloggers I've seen, break the blog into topic sections...

Why would anyone start a forum these days?

    Blogs are kind of funny... if people know you and are looking for that's great.

    If you're unknown, it's a great deal of work to get people to notice you.

    Fortunately people know you, so you'll have an easier time of it.

    Blogger doesn't have the topics/categories feature. I've been on at them for months.

    Maybe they'll listen to a Radio star such as yourself. ;-)

    Kind of you to drop in. I saw your comments re the "sandbox" thread. Just thought I should tip you off about my ClickZ column on Monday.

    All I can say is - hang on to your hat - there's gonna be a lot of wind ;-)

    If Blogger doesn't listen to one of its brightest stars...

    They won't pay any attention to a geriatric former radio star :-)

    *Cough* *splutter*

    Because forums whip blogs when it comes to generating an audience!!

    Dear Mike,

    I wasn't sure to put this and I realize you're still figuring out how to drive this thing, but I was wondering how come all your "Buddies" are men?

    Are there no women in your industry? :)
