Blog Clutter

I saw a friend had put a Feedburner banner on their blog showing the number of readers they have. I like stuff like that as I am a data junkie. The more data the better. I love that about Bloglines. I have 57 people who have subscribed at one time or another. I don't suspect many of them read on a frequent basis, but it's an interesting number to me for some reason.

I also really like the HitMaps thing at the bottom of this page that I was intrigued by when Stowe put one on his site. There are people in places where I have never been that have read my blog at some time. It could have been the accidental "Next Blog" on Blogger or I might have actually said something interesting somewhere. I am guessing that it's 50/50.

All of this got me to thinking that I have a ton of crap on my blog. I like the Flickr bar, but I think I am going to be using Phlog and Zoto more, or in addition to Flickr. Hmmm. I don't listen to any of the podcasts I have links to other than AMP links, which I am listening more and more to.

I think its a good time for some springtime blog cleaning... Oh that reminds me, those Google Ad words, I think I am up to like $5.93. This one hurts me. Do I eliminate the beer money banner at the top cuz it's really not something I ever plan to make money on, or in a nod to my free hosting it's something I should have because I am a supporter of capitalism? The hard choices in life...

I think it's very easy to over do it these days with all the widgets out there. I'm trying to pair mine down.. I've got 2 hit counters, flickr badges, feedburner counters, paypal donation options (yeah who's going to give me $$$ that was just a joke).

Anyhow I'm noticing slower load times now, so I think I may start to remove some of the unecessary widgets :)

Derrick, glad to see you'll be using Zoto more. Especially since we're launching a totally new version in about a week that KICKS A**! All sorts of new photoblog features, a new method of tagging, faster site performance, etc. I look forward to seeing how you like it.

Hi all,
In talking about Hands free business, what could be better than a 100% automated system that could allow netters to fold their arms while it tirelessly hunts for prospects.

I happened to pass by, but your Hands free business related contributins truly captured my eye. I happen to have been frustrated and been bled to my last penny by sweet talkers, into buying useless onlines opporunities.

Only after 4 years did I stumble on something that has truly changed my life. Things can nver realy be this easier ...no emailling, no calls, no prospecting or closing your sales because a real millennium software does literally everything for you! The prosperity automated system is in aclass of its own.

I would recommend it for anyone who needs a regular side income but hating MLM's or chain letters or anything like that. The PAS team does all the work and you get the dime. This is my idea of the 21st century business..http://www.MegaWealthy.com/224

Many thnks
