Blogging notes

I began this blog on Oct 10th, 2011 with an introductory post.  Before that, I had already started another blog, oriented more to questions about knowledge, learning, cognition.

On my other blog, I had already posted a few computing related messages.  I had more such messages that I had considered, but they were way off-topic for that blog.  And that’s why I started this blog.  I haven’t counted, but I think my posting rate here has been greater than on my more philosophical blog.

Looking at statistics and search strings that WordPress tells me about, I see that my post “Comparing Fedora and opensuse” seems to be the most popular, with 154 views during the last week.  I never would have guessed that would be so popular.  A new release of Fedora should be coming out soon, so I will probably test that if I can juggle enough testing time along with my continued beta testing of opensuse 12.3.

Most of the computing related posts on my other blog were related to crypto, and I have posted updated versions here.  However, there is one that I have not had a need to update, and it shows up as one of the more popular posts on that blog.  It is “Certificates for dummies” which was posted only a few days before starting this blog.  It is perhaps part of what gave me the idea to start this blog.  If I find a good reason to update it, I will do that here.  But for now, better not to disturb search engine databases, and just leave it where it is.

Overall, this blog is a bit more popular than my other blog.  That’s probably because the other blog’s main topic is more specialized.

Happy new year, everybody.
