  • Are Personal Websites/Blogs Passé?

    I have a love/hate relationship with my personal website/blog. When I started this site almost 9 years ago, social networking wasn’t even in the vocabulary of the internet, and personal branding was a must have. Fast forward to 2012, and Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn are ubiquitous, and Tumblr is a great turnkey solution. I purposely left out Google+ because like so many other companies, they are way too late to the party. This website is a labor of love, but a little more laborious as of late...
  • Windows Live Writer Beta

    It took me a couple of tries to get the new Windows Live beta package installed on my machine; the secret fix for me was to enable the Windows Firewall service (I disable it since I’m behind other firewalls), so if your install is failing, turn on the Firewall service. You can turn it off again after you’re done. The previous version of Windows Live Writer hasn’t worked on any of my machines for quite some time now, so it’s nice that the new version actually works again. I might actually start keeping...
  • JK.com -- Feedburner Pro Enabled

    I posted a while back about the Feedburner MyBrand service ...I've been taking it for a spin on some other low traffic feeds and am nothing less than blown away, so JK.com is now Feedburner enabled and ready to rock. Community Server 2007 has built in support for Feedburner out of the box; it's as simple as plugging values into a couple of textboxes, flipping a switch or two, and blammo...syndication feeds are burnerized. What that all means is that the transition should be seamless for existing...
  • Linked To By Wiki -- Note To Self, Write Better Articles

    I recently noticed a reasonable spike in traffic around here a few days ago; turns out an entry of mine got linked to by a Wiki article (no, I didn't make the link from Wiki myself ;-)). The point of this entry isn't to garner kudos or pat myself on the back (of course the ego points do make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside). The point is that the article that was linked to mentions in passing the point: A breaking change in the .Net framework from 1.x to 2.0. If you were to go strictly by the title...
  • Feedburner MyBrand Service -- Brand Your Feedburner Feed

    I've had a Feedburner account for a while now, but have been reluctant to throw the switch on my site's feeds over to it...while I may not have a huge circulation (and therefore no "brand" to adhere to), I'd like to keep what little recognition I do have in my feed address instead of the generic feedburner.com/whatever, i.e. my name (or in the case of clients, their company name, etc). Feedburner now offers a pretty impressive array of services, so I was in the process of giving in and started to...
  • Yet Another Weblog To Make You...errrm, Nevermind

    Well, I had an elaborate post all planned out to announce a new personal blog I'm starting (need to keep work and play somewhat separated) and was going to use Live Spaces...only to find out over the past couple of days just how much LS absolutely blows. Last night I arranged all my widgets on the site, got my colors and layout all purdy and whatnot, only to stumble across a couple of severe limitations of LS Blogging this evening: You cannot delete any of the predefined categories. You cannot (permanently...
  • BlogMailr Is Now Live!

    Via Ken Robertson (aka the man behind BlogMailr): Yes, BlogMailr is now live! Check it out for yourself at blogmailr.com . So what is BlogMailr? It is an email-to-blog service for everybody. No matter what your software is, where it is hosted, or if your software supports it out of the box. If your blog supports posting tools like Windows Live Writer or BlogJet, BlogMailr will work for you. Enter in a little bit of information, such as where your site is, and the username/password, and it will automatically...
  • jaysonBlog Turns Three

    I cannot believe it's been 3 years since I first decided to build my own blogging engine as a coding exercise one lonely night back in 2003, and here I am still pounding away at the keyboard in an attempt to keep my 5 loyal readers somewhat entertained. The most notable thing that happened to my site was that traffic congestion finally forced me to move it off my home network and over to a real hosting solution. Site content also noticeably started going more towards the Community Server end of the...
  • Bon Voyage Weblogs.Asp.Net Feed

    During my last round of Rss feed pruning, I finally deleted weblogs.asp.net (it's been a long time coming). Too many of the following: Duplicate posts about the same news item. Posts linking to other posts on weblogs.asp.net essentially saying "yeah me too" or "so-and-so posted about the following." Posts that are locale specific (i.e. speaker in blah part of the country type stuff). AJAX related fluff posts. I'd say out of 20 posts, maybe 1 of them actually piques any interest from me anymore. Nothing...
  • New Content Section Added to JK.com

    I've created a new section on my site to aggregate external content that I read on a regular basis: My External News Feed . This is similar to the old CS2.0 Roller application, except that configuration is much more flexible. It's more of a way for me to keep up with the most common external sites I visit, but if you want to check out what I read on a regular basis feel free to have a look.
