Long time no postJuly 9, 2007 at 10:27 am | Posted in xubuntu | 11 Comments
It’s been exactly one year since I posted my first post here at Xubuntu Blog. It had ran for a few months, until the updates simply stopped. There are many reasons for this:
Lack of content: I had simply started to run out of ideas. I wanted constant updates, but I didn’t want half of them to be useless and uninformative. Sadly, that is, IMO, what started to happen.
Lack of Xubuntu-related content: I had always wanted to focus on Xubuntu-related material. However, it was getting to the point where for each post about Xubuntu there were two or three non-related posts. I had always wanted to remain consistent, but was starting to lose my focus. This ties in with the point above.
Overwork: It had come to the point where updating this was a chore. Everyday I thought of something to post on the blog, and posted it regardless of whether it was good or not. I decided to take a break and come back with a less rigid posting routine. That, of course, took a lot longer than I expected.
I felt a sense of community when working on this site, and I’d like to bring that back. In an attempt to become even more community-oriented, I welcome anybody with a WordPress account to offer help in any way they can. If you write how-tos, just post a comment showing some of your example how-tos and you can get the chance to become a contributor at Xubuntu Blog. I understand that there are a lot of Xubuntu users out there that know even more than I do, and with your help the updates can stay constant without tiring me. Eventually, this site can once again become one of the top Xubuntu resources.
It doesn’t need to stop at how-tos, either. Even helping in typos, incorrect information, etc. is appreciated. Reader Simanek has given me an updated logo, which is a lot less pixellated (blame WordPress for that), and I thank him for it.
So now I’m back and with a fresh start. The updates probably won’t be as constant as they used to be, but they will come around every now and then.
Til then, keep reading.
