Polly Rescued; Tsheets Soars…

April 25, 2008 at 3:37 pm 2 comments

Just as a quickie follow on from yesterdays post about Tsheets, I have already discovered the reason for the pressure sores on my behind, at this moment in time I have been sitting at the computer for the sum total of seven hours and fourteen minutes.

Sometimes I think that this is time wasted; but today has proved to be incredibly constructive in terms of writing my blogs. The amount of information which I have picked up has been absolutely incredible and it is a pleasure to be able to utilize it; unfortunately, I think it’s going to require the purchase of some more memory as things are becoming very slow…

Just this morning I installed an Interactive Food Map of Ireland

over on Vinca’s In Tha Kitchen and opened an acount with CoComment, which will allow me to keep up with the many conversations that I seem to be joining in with on the sites that I visit. As I get used to that facility, I will probably add the widget to my blogs so that my readers can share the conversations too.

In the course of all this I noticed that my foodie blog has now got a Google rating and I am absolutely delighted with this. It has only happened since I registered the blog on Google analytics, which is what I’d already done with my general blog Polly’s Peri-wrinkle’s & Peircing’s! It seems that things are beginning to take off since I did that and it makes me wonder why so many of the more established blogs with huge readerships and numerous awards haven’t even got a foot on the ladder yet.

Could this be something to do with the pay per post fiasco? Apparently, Google have been penalising people who subscribe to this form of generating income by withdrawing their page rankings! While this appears to be true, as in I’ve heard it from a variety of sources ; my friend Jean recently joined the pay per post ranks and has recently got her big toe on the ladder at least. I’m going to be watching her blog with renewed interest now; waiting for the bar to change from white to green…

There is only one problem with my checking in to monitor the page ranking situation and that is that I prefer to use my Mozilla Firefox browser over Explorer. The reasons are pretty simple; I find that Firefox is quicker to load than Explorer.

If I need to do some research on either myself or the rest of the blogging community I have to switch browsers which isn’t very hard at all. Unfortunately now that I am using so many downloaded and uploaded programmes this is affecting things quite badly here; but at least my conscience is clear now that I have evidence of my hours of hard work banging away on the computer!

Maybe having enrolled in a couple of affiliate programmes will generate some income thereby allowing me to upgrade the computer and install some memory…

    Gosh, I’ve only just noticed this link. Thank you. It all helps.
    I think Payperpal has a bearing on the Google PR but mostly if you are PR4 or over. They are the ones that were seriously “slashed” at the beginning of the year. PPP now has it’s own RealRank system although I don’t know how well it’s working yet.

    It’ll be interesting to see what the outcome of all this is; won’t it?

    I’m glad that it doesn’t appear to be affecting you, long may it last! Keep up the good work…
