Starting Over Again…Again

by andy h on July 27, 2006 · 8 comments

Darren over at is having a group writing project where blog writers submit what they would do differently if they were to start their blog all over again.  Although this is a bit off topic for my site it is relevant since I have just relaunched this blog.

The first thing I would do differently is start with a hosted site and WordPress, which I have just done in the last couple weeks. Unfortunately, I am leaving behind my PR3 I had established at blogger and probably some readers as well. I haven’t figured out how to change my feedburner feed yet so I’m losing some more readers there. Those are problems I could have avoided just by starting here. I think the switch will definitely pay off eventually since WordPress gives me many more options to manage my blog.

I’m actually still learning a lot about blogging so there probably will be many more mistakes made before I get this site perfected. My main regret is I don’t really have any interaction with other financial bloggers. Although I leave comments on other pf blogs occassionally, I have yet to receive a single comment here. It is a little disheartening not receiving any feedback when you have made almost 100 posts. I know people are reading this so I would appreciate any comments you have. Thanks.

Ah, I do love Wordpress and my own host, I hope it will be a positive switch for you and really help you out long term, it just seems to take a bit more effort on your own domain. We also joined in this project if you want to read –

It’s interesting to see what people are willing to forgoer when they make a change from a successful blogger or typepad blog. Usually, a lot of RSS readers. If I could ever leave one thing with a new blogger, that’s to establish a feed at feedburner. Then, when you make a change, at least the most common way people read your blog won’t change.

Nice site, have a great day.

Keep at it. Your site is destined for good things methinks.

I think the lack of comments is mainly due to the informational style of your posts. I’m sure if you wrote something controversial or argumentative you’d get some feedback. Remember, only something like 0.5% of visitors or less bother to leave a comment 🙂
