I’ve not abandoned this blog… yet, but…

You’d probably find more regular excitement if you follow me on Google+ and, to a lesser extent, if you follow me on Twitter. 🙂 (and if you don’t already have a Google+ account, click on the “Send email” link on the lefthand side of my Google+ page, drop me a quick note, and I’d be… Continue reading I’ve not abandoned this blog… yet, but…

FINALLY – Bladam 2.0! :)

I finally took the plunge.  After blabbing about moving my blog over to Expression Engine software over a year ago, I’ve finally done it. So what does it mean to you?  Here’s the skinny on the major new stuff: Comments post almost instantaneously.  And even non-members can opt to get e-mail-notified when someone posts a… Continue reading FINALLY – Bladam 2.0! 🙂

Google RSS ads: Either foiled by anti-ad bastards or…?

I have run a single Google AdSense ad in each entry in my full-text RSS feed since May of this year. I’m apparently not allowed to discuss clickthru rates, so let me just say this: Despite getting a rather decent amount of traffic for a personal blog, I cannot buy a pack of bubblegum with… Continue reading Google RSS ads: Either foiled by anti-ad bastards or…?

BLADAM has both full and summary feeds available

Hi there, After noticing that most of my faithful readers who catch my blog via Bloglines and other feed readers are grabbing my summary feed, I wanted to make sure you all knew that I have a full-feed available as well. For those in the un-know, here’s the difference: – SUMMARY FEED: Contains the first… Continue reading BLADAM has both full and summary feeds available

Feed Fabulosity (Atom, RSS, Full, Summary… oh boy!)

I’m at least temporarily offering both summary full feeds via FeedBurner… which delivers Atom, RSS, whatever your newsreader likes :-). Just look on over at the lefthand-side of any BLADAM page for the links. Since I do like people to actually visit my site, however (for both selfish and unselfish reasons) I’m debating on whether… Continue reading Feed Fabulosity (Atom, RSS, Full, Summary… oh boy!)

This is likely my last post

…using MovableType. It may be a week or so until you see my new ExpressionEngine-powered site, because tweaking is taking a bit longer than I had anticipated (more due to my fussiness than any EE problems). In the meantime, this gives you (yes, YOU!) a great chance to offer me feedback. – What have you… Continue reading This is likely my last post

Changing blog software… new Adam site, and more

Hi there 🙂 Before I skedaddle off to a going away party for a friend, I thought I’d share a few brief tidbits with you: 1) For a variety of reasons, I’m moving from MovableType (the software that currently powers this blog) to ExpressionEngine. More info on that later… but now, I’m warning you that… Continue reading Changing blog software… new Adam site, and more

While I always LOVE seeing your comments here (hint hint hint!), I do also want to shamelessly plug my humble SmileZone Conversation Corner. Topics include: Friendship, Books & poetry, School, Work, Humor, Riddles, Society & Politics, along with :ahem: Sex and Sexuality (discussions, you pervs, not pics… sorry ;-). We have some of the world’s… Continue reading Looking to chat about Life, Liberty, Love and stuff?

Community participation on this blog and SmileZone

I’m honored and grateful to have many thousands of you each month reading my blog and participating on my related SmileZone Conversation Corner but I’m saddened that my writings haven’t stimulated as much discussion as I would have liked. I don’t plan on changing my writing style or what I write about, but if there… Continue reading Community participation on this blog and SmileZone
