But It's A Humble Big-Head

So I'm on the internet today... minding my own business... no, I mean literally minding my own business; I Googled the word "BlogDogIt." You know, to see if we're getting famous or anything (mainly just seeing what comes up.)

In the process I was pleased to see a search suggestion for "BlogDogIt Reviews" so I said "sure" - I'll be darned - near the top of the results listing was a link to the BigBitingPigProductions.com website featuring the reviews page for their hit film Frances Stein. And lo and behold I see a pull-quote from my review of the film [See: PJ Has Created A Monster

I am very honored for BlogDogIt to be represented in this manner and sincerely thank Big Biting Pig Productions for including BlogDogIt in their marketing strategy and commemorate the occasion with this giffy little screen grab: 

sure to become the talk of the indie horror circuit!

Here Goes Nothing...

Ever since July of 2010 BlogDogIt has been hosted free-of-charge on GoDaddy servers  as part of their "Free hosting with domain purchase" promotion. That service has been discontinued and those servers are being retired. If I do nothing BlogDogIt will simply go away. [smiley:eek]

My first thought was "well, it's been fun but all good things must come to an end..." however, as I looked a little closer I discovered that if I upgraded my paid "Economy Clasic" hosting account (DeBurger.com) to the next tier ("Deluxe") I would be able to host multiple domains from the same account. After careful consideration I have determined that it would be worth the additional $2.00 per month to keep this dream alive...

In order to migrate away from the ill-fated server to the new digs I must first ditch the existing BlogDogIt website lock, stock and barrel (after copying all the files over to DeBurger.com.) It will also be necessary to recreate the databases in their new home as well.

This maneuver is actually nothing new to me and people have paid me to do this for them for longer than BlogDogIt has been around. Still, the thought of killing this site - even in full knowledge of it's ability to be resurrected - causes the heart to beat a bit faster in anticipation of that mad dash to the stated goal.

Good Luck Me...   

So... if this site goes away in the near future it will
be back (
or my name is not

UPDATE: BlogDogIt.com has been successfully migrated to its new server home. In all, the website was missing for approx. 20 minutes... not too shabby [smiley:thumbup]

Hangin' Out With The Best Blogs

Only the best blogs. Where blogs come to hang out.

For better than a year now I have been lamenting the fact that technorati dot com has given up on their blog rating system and completely changed the landscape in the blogosphere as far as I'm concerned. There once was a time when your Technorati rating was some indicator of your blogs standing in the community. I would find great sport in perusing the list of registered blogs and would always pay special attention to those blogs with a similar rating to BlogDogIt. Once upon a time I would only "Spotlight" websites that shared a similar Tecnorati score to my site's. Since that system of measure is no more (or NoTechrati, as I now prefer to think of them) the business of discovering new blogs to visit has been a bit more random. Now the house rule regarding a blog's eligibility to be featured here requires that it must be accessible via links originating from BlogDogIt.

A few months ago - following the example of Amanda Wood (Journey of Mixed Emotions, Clearly Writing) - I added the LonelyBlogs "Badge" to BlogDogIt and in so doing have opened a fresh new world of interesting discoveries. As I find the gems I will catalog them in the BlogDogIt Links section so look for more activity in that area too.

LonelyBlogs is basically a feed aggregator of their member blogs. I have personally made several valuable discoveries by visiting the page and selecting sites from their dynamic up-to-the-minute list of freshly published articles. Since joining and having BlogDogIt included in the mix I have noticed a bump in visitors to this site traceable to this initiative. I invite you to check them out and join the fun. Their motto "Only the Best Blogs" would include you, right?

BlogDogItly Social

BlogDogIt on Facebook

BlogDogItly Social

Now I went and did it...

I started a BlogDogIt page on Facebook but that's not the half of it. I modified the code here on BlogDogIt to allow for the posting of any article created here to the new FB Page. (Special thanks to suprsidr for the Post to Facebook Code presented openly on Geeklog.net. After some minor modifications I have a reliable way to feed content to the BlogDogIt facebook community.

This comes hot on the heels of starting my Twitter presence and gets me one more brick in my "Social Media" wall of linky-buttons. So now with a nice round number of social club memberships I figured it was high time I created that show of media links the kids these days are so keen on. That explains the newly added feature block named "BlogDogItly Social".

Featuring the following hip locations:
(each exhibiting various degrees of participatory readiness.)

 
 
If you are involved with any of these other services
you are invited to follow me there as well.
