Blogger or Tumblr?

For some reason, Tumblr seems to be doing a lot better than Blogger and the networking over there is a lot better. I'm back and forth on which style of blogging I prefer... this seems like a more direct and full-means for doing what I want to do, but Tumblr's got a very fun direction and it's a lot easier to interact with the community over there.

I've been wondering what I can do to get more hits, and while the past two months, especially May, were very successful (May gave us our record for monthly views), I'm not sure how else to go about it. I almost feel cheated by Google in the fact that, I really don't know that anyone is seeing my blog on Blogger or through Google Search engines, it feels like any hits I get, it's directly because of me spamming links on Twitter and various other places, and having my site feed discovered through Twitter links and getting hits from being posted on a larger site.

I had a goal to set up my site and I wanted it to be through Blogger because it made the most sense and I wasn't going to be paying a ton for unnecessary features. But through a very limited advertisement of what Google offered when purchasing the domain, I'm left with no options of expanding Don't Laugh, People when I should have no problems with that.

So I'm stuck wondering if I should just move over to Tumblr for now to do my blogging as it's a more network-friendly site... if I should just create a Tumblr and post links to here from there, or if I should find a way to pick up my domain and carry it elsewhere, paying tonnes for unnecessary features.

Perhaps my commitment to Blogger and what I started is blinding me... maybe I've got to put on shades and just carry on...

Windows Live Messenger Officially Converted to Skype

Messenger has moved to Skype

Messenger was retired in April 2013 and is no longer available or supported on most Mac and Windows operating systems. *

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
