Site problems

Seems since about 2012, the comment system on my website was semi broken. Comments were logged, but they never appeared. And well, since I wasn't paying attention I simply didn't notice. Resolving that now. Posts from ages ago are now popping in, while at the same time I'm getting rid of the apparent porn links...  spammers...

Lack of updates

I haven't been updating lately. Quite a few things I'd like to write about, but for whatever reason I never took the time to do so. My Instagram covers pretty much what's been going on, but I feel like I need to stop neglecting the blog that no one reads but me. It's kinda fun for me to read old posts, and there won't be any new old posts if I don't write anything.

Site changes

As you can see, there have been some site changes.  Really the big change is going from Joomla 1.5 to 2.5.  It's pretty good I think.  I also switched comment systems, so I lost all the comments from before.  I could do the dirty work of migrating them over, but I'm not too interested really.  Joomla 2.5 seems to be quite nice.  Though, for a site like mine, I'm not sure it is worth doing.  It doesn't really fix anything that wasn't broken so to speak.

Still, it's pretty nice.  Looking forward to messing with the various modules, plugins, and templates that I find.

Joomla update

This website has been running Joomla 1.5 for a while now.  But, I think it's time I made the move to Joomla 2.5.  The page will get a new theme and all that.  Hopefully all of the content will stay intact though.  I haven't really investigated what makes 2.5 the latest and greatest, but I'm looking forward to it.

Goofing around with adsense again

Google keeps sending me vouchers for $100 of adsense/adwords publicity.  Now, my site gets literally less than a hundred unique visitors a month.  But it got me thinking, what would happen if I do use those adwords?  I'd get more visitors, but no one would ever come back.  Ha ha!  So, what to do?  I think if I really want to get more hits, I need to either make this blog more personal and interesting with stories and such, which my life is fairly devoid of, or I need to put up more guides and such that hit on niche topics.  Then again, I kind of like how it is now where I just regurgitate events that unfold to the internet friends we have.

Still, I'm curious again, so I've turned on some more adsense things and will probably turn more in in time to see how they work in the grand scheme of things.  Go grab adblock if you don't like them though.  :)
