rants, raves & rhetoric: the 3rs – june 3, 2011

3 Jun

It’s time for another addition of rants, raves & rhetoric. The last few weeks has given me a chance to catch up on blog posts and tweak a few things on all three sites. I mentioned changing the font size and adding some navigation features to each of the sites and have noticed an improvement in the bounce rate, though the summer traffic is slowing things down a bit with the number of visitors.

My fatigue is improving and it looks like I’m finding my groove again. Still getting the feel for my new living on a dime website but am learning the direction I want to take. I may go with 2 or three mini posts with quick green ideas to help you save money instead of the traditional longer editorial type posts.

Last time I mentioned that June would be social media “re-introduction” month for my Twitter (and LinkedIn) accounts. That plan hasn’t changed. It is likely that I will reduce the number of followers in order to improve the quality of interaction. If someone is detracting from my stream and time, I want to eliminate the distraction and focus on interactive and useful community contacts.

The main blog simply stephen is not a commercial venture, though I do work exclusively online. I use it to act as a voice and build community. Generally, I make money with web writing and behind the scene things but am hoping to add a bold new venture this summer (fall at the latest) to the mix…a hint, it’s something to do with carbon footprint & how we can reduce our impact! This time it will not be a blog.

I have been quite pleased with my return to writing and have put out a few great posts in the last couple weeks:

cope with life

Until next week – enjoy your weekend.
