Time has come to drop some blogs…………..

It was time for me to go over the blog and do something that is never very easy to do.....I have had to preform this function in past and never looked forward to it. The time came to look through the blogs on my blog list and remove the ones that have been dormant for some time. As I went through the blogs I had noticed that some were without any activity for more than a year. I felt these ones for one reason or another were no longer functioning. It ended up I only had to drop about 3 blogs but it gives me more room to add active blogs. I can understand how workloads, family and sometime health problems can lead to a blog going stagnate. One thing I am guilty of is not changing my blog layout now and then to give it a new and fresh look. I think in the 3 years the blog has been up and running it has had....maybe 2 makeovers!! I should pay more attention to this as well as adding and or refreshing up the pages as well.

    I’d love to write for the blog as well. I’ve become more active in the hobby in the last couple of months and I’ll be writing at least one blog post a month with regards to ham radio.

  • Mike VE3WDM:

    Good morning Don, I am not sure when you ask “how to get a blog added to the list” Are you refereeing to adding your blog to my site or adding to this site Amateurradio.com? My email is [email protected] shoot off an email to me and see if we can work this out.
    Have a great day and thanks for taking the time to stop by and comment.

  • Mike VE3WDM:

    Good morning Michael, great looking blog and nice equipment that you have there, also it was intresting to read about your island DX-pedention back in 2008. You have been added to my blog role.
    Have a good day and thanks for the info about your blog.

  • Mike VE3WDM:

    Hi Andrew, if you are referring to amateurradio.com site I am not sure about others and how they started writing for site but I was sent an email and asked to consider having my posts reposted on this site. It’s a great way to reach more readers and meet new hams as well.
    Thanks for stopping by Andrew and do send me a link to your blog would like to look at it…send it t me email at [email protected]

    I think the site design is fine. I’m able to get around and see what I want to see with a minimum of effort. It doesn’t look dated, so I really don’t think it needs an update? Change for change’s sake is rarely good.

  • Mike VE3WDM:

    Good evening Michael, it is very true about user friendly sites and ones that are easy to navigate will have blogger coming back. I was not wanting to do any drastic changes but just add some new blogs I follow, add some links and maybe update some of my pages with some new pics. I have the KX3 page but the rig now has a new key. As my dad said to me “if it’s not broken then don’t fix it” Thanks for the very wise advice Michael and the positive feedback!
    Great that you stopped by and took the time to leave a comment.
    Have a nice weekend
