How NOT To Get Bloggers To Help Your Company

posted on 06/07/08 at 10:17:16 pm by Joel Ross

The other day, I received a comment on my blog that was completely unrelated to the post. It happens all the time, and I usually use it as a judge of what my PageRank is - I could tell when it jumped recently because the flood of comment spam increased t… more »

RossCode.com is Four Years Old

posted on 04/13/08 at 10:35:34 pm by Joel Ross

On April 13th, 2004, I finally had a blog set up that I felt comfortable with. I'd used blogspot, a couple of other generic blogging engines, and my family web site before that, but I finally decided that it was time to find a permanent home. So I set… more »

I was unable to attend CodeMash v2.0.0.8, which was disappointing. I followed some of the action on Twitter and I've read some of the blog posts about it, but it's still not quite the same. I've been looking for more info, and one of those sources is com… more »
