This blog. My blog. It violates almost every rule SEO nutjobs insist upon. But that’s exactly why I chose the path I’ve taken with it. The name “Skatterbrainz” has been my monicker for years. I started on Twitter with it, but before that I used it when signing up on forums and bulletin boards and various other things. There are other people using the same name of course, but I only use it on tech-oriented sites and my own blogs and sites.
They say a blog should stick to a narrow, focused, concise topic or subject. I do not.
They say a blog should mention brand names within a focused context. I do not. Well, not usually.
They say a blog should be closely integrated with a holistic social network experience. Mine does not.
Do I pay a price for this ecclectic diffusion of mental diversity? Not really. Blogs are free. I spend time on it, but to me that is therapy. I make no money from this blog in any way except to mention my books (ok, ok, okaay, geeez: e-books), but that’s still not a direct return. My total AdSense revenue balance is around $0.20, so that doesn’t count really.
I’ve tried several times to elicit feedback from readers as to what subjects I should focus on mostly, but that was a failed effort. The four responses I received were entirely unrelated and offered no real direction to follow. So, without a GPS to guide me on my journey through the fields of idiocy, I chart my own course using my patented Stevie Wonder GPS.
I don’t possess enough pure technical wisdom to maintain a serious fountain of knowledge like other blogs do, which is fine. They do an amazing job of that already. I’m not trying to compete with anyone. I just dump my thoughts and hopefully a little something to make someone smile. Even if I just make someone shake their head in total disbelief, that’s a good thing.
I’ve taken some breaks and pauses along the way. I’ve even given up on it twice, but I had to come back to it. I wasn’t even sure if anyone was reading it, but that isn’t important. I hope to keep this thing going for a while longer. Above all, I want to thank YOU for reading my posts and sharing your thoughts with me and other readers.
