Cool! Just added your entries RSS to my Google Reader!

I am not motivated enough to keep up on a blog but did my first webcast on Friday. Planning to do it again on Monday and keep it going as a regular thing. Also may expand it to interviews, tours, live Q&A sessions etc. with various people ranging from homebrewers to nano and microbrewers. I want to focus on multiple aspects involved in brewing, brew culture, expansion and more.

Starting with a few test broadcasts first though so this is my plug to click the link in my sig and give me input of what you would like to see and I will see what can be done to make it happen.

Blog redesign / rename and a brew-post in the hopper.

Also, goodness, I'd think the webcast requires more dedication than a blog post! Kudos to that!

I hope this doesn't sound like a rant, but for anyone doing a blog it is very important to "NEVER" have a post called, "I'm getting back into blogging" "It's been a long time" or any other like statements. It really makes the blog feel old and abandoned. Personally, I want to feel like you are out brewing and carefully formulating that next post about it. Who really cares if it takes 3 to 5 months a post. No one gets upset about it.

Like most everyone else I started my website as a recipe database for myself and still treat it like that. I can look at recipes, notes and other brewing goodies. Also if people ask for a recipe I can point them in the right direction. I post a lot, honestly to much, but that's OK because they are focused at me and my brewing experience. My buddies can look at see whats on tap, when I'm brewing and the recipes I'm working on. It's all about the journey.

I wonder what brought up the reason to do the 'rant'?

I brew multiple times a week on average so it is just a matter of turning on the webcam and sharing my day with others really. I suppose it is a bit more than that and hopefully it is evident I am putting some time into it from todays webcast.

I didn't want it to sound like a rant, but I guess it did. To me, this thread sounds like people wanting to increase their page clicks. It was just a suggestion not have those types of post. By all means, if you want to post "I'm getting back into blogging" do it. It just discourages the majority of people from adding your blogroll into a RSS feed.

I concur, and I have shamelessly promototed myself a time or two in this thread. I have mostly used the thread to pick up new blogs which I add to my bloglist on my site. The list is getting rather long, but since I have it setup to order dynamically based on the most recent posts (on top) I don't mind to much. I actually, use the list on my blog a couple times a week to catch up with everyone else. I think there are one or two other members of this thread which use a similiar linking system to follow me as I can see in the analytics who I am getting a lot of hits from.

Another thing I would like to get off my chest is commenting. If I can add something insightful, ask a related question, or add to the discussion of your post, I am going to try and comment. Some of you are really good about responding to a comments and I appreciate it! Others just don't...If your blog is just there for your own recipe database, thats fine, but I tend to think of it as sharing avenue, much like the forum but on a little more personal level. It saddens me when fellow bloggers don't respond to comments. Its good for everyones blog when disccusion occurs.

I agree with the comments. I love getting comments, but I also hate commenting on other blogs when I know I will not get a response.
