Site Updates 14
With the increased amount of traffic I’ve had this year (over 100K pageviews in the last 60 days) I’m having to shore up some areas that didn’t need attention before. To that end, I have posted new “policies” (such as they are) about comments and emails. Of particular note: if you email me, I can quote […]
#150376921 / gettyimages.com The past month has been busy at our house. We’ve had new ceiling lighting put in, our almost-unusable laundry room is being remodeled, and the past week has been the front foyer being re-tiled. We are replacing the old slate with different, nicer slate. Our older, in need of repair […]
Hello there, faithful readers! I realize posting has been scarce here lately. Summer is always busy, and this one has been especially so. Home improvement projects, a wedding, a first communion, a flooded basement, an anniversary, and life as usual have all been happening within the past 30 days. I also submitted a work of […]
I don’t know about you, but I believe that the things we’re talking about here are really important. I spend a lot of time on the posts I write, and increasingly, that takes me away from other paying work. I also need to keep my hosting package fairly robust, because I’m getting a good deal of […]
With the influx of traffic has come an influx of comments. With an influx of comments has come a revelation that something is broken in the WordPress theme I’m using. I can’t view all the comments, others have struggled with leaving them. So I’m going to be playing with themes. Swapping them out, messing with […]
Bless me blogreaders, for I have sinned. It’s been 3 months since my last post. I’ve been a genuinely very busy guy lately, so I won’t apologize, but I hate to neglect this space. I aim to spend more time here in the coming months as I get back to more personal writing again. I […]
New features abound at WordPress, and the 2012 blogging report is no exception. According to my report: I had 25,000 views in 2012 Only 59 posts – I will be writing more in 2013. Hands down, my biggest post was Is Wheat Bad For You?, which had over 10,000 pageviews on its own for 2012. Second […]
Just a quick note – I had some major site trouble over the past 24 hours, but it appears things have been restored to normalcy. Waaaaay back in 2010 (can you even remember that far into the past?) my site got hacked by some Saudi Arabian cyberpunk. No, really. I’m not kidding. Well, I wasn’t […]
Just a quick note – my Akismet spam filter for the blog is set to “kill” despite the fact that I have deployed fairly light comment moderation requirements in the site settings. I just pulled two real comments out of over 140 spam comments left in the last 24 hours. If your comment doesn’t appear […]
Hey there. I see that my visitor stats dropped from about 5 per day down to about 1 per day over the last day or so, so I just wanted to say something to calm the masses. My site got taken down, MMA style, by my web hosting company, because some asshole hacked my steveskojec.com […]
Well, does it? I haven’t posted in almost 8 months. That’s got to be a record, even for me. Where have I been? New job. New kid. New car. New house hunting (as yet unsuccessful). New perspectives. Writers’ block. Facebook and Twitter killed the blogosphere star. Those kind of things. But I’ve been […]
Here’s to new beginnings! We’ve been back in Northern Virginia now for nearly two weeks, and in that time I’ve given the site a full re-design from pretty much the ground up, incorporating some custom design work, an existing WordPress theme, a standalone photo-management tool, and my own patchwork of CSS and HTML to bring […]
I love writing about the things in life that matter most. I want to continue to provide great content for you to read and share. Writing is time-consuming work, and I have a growing family. The more income I can make from my work here, the more time I can spend on creating great content for you to enjoy.
If you value what I provide, please consider making a donation -- no matter how small -- to help fund and support my efforts. Thanks!
