Technorati Top 3000 and the Neighbour of the Beast

Thanks for the all the links, guys and girls.

Here’s a list of everyone who has linked to me by freshness, and everyone who has linked by authority (not as interesting). Here’s a list of the last 130 readers who have MyBlogLog accounts.

I’ve celebrated by redesigning (well, tweaking) the site based on feedback.

  • adjusted the text so that it is readable at 640×480 without having to horizontally scroll
  • removed my del.icio.us daily links (I have another idea for them)
    • the weekly post will keep happening on saturdays
  • cleaned up the sidebar
  • cleaned up the sidebar’s sidebar (Only displays in Firefox at 1024×768 or greater)
  • added a splash page at http://internetducttape.com that gives some direction to first time visitors
  • moved “top posts” and “most recent posts” from the sidebar to the bottom bar
  • changed the summary posts page to have the title: “//engtech – blogging, how-tos, tech news, and reviews” for SEO
  • changed one of the top “main category” from digest to comic
  • added “minor categories” for movies and comic

There’s no doubt about it. I’m a complicator when it comes to technology and I can’t help continually tweak the design of the site even though it probably looked better back then.

Almost forgot — big thank you’s to the follow for their recent feedback:

I’m still really impressed that Webomatica made MyCatBlogLog. It’s amazing to see someone make something this awesome out of a half-baked idea you had after drinking too much coffee.

Only one more day for that group writing project / contests for wordpress.com bloggers… I’ll be posting details of the next contest on tuesday or wednesday.

    Yay! Top 3,000. Good job, engtech. I really like the redesign, too… I guess I should have said that earlier.

    I’m not expecting any compliments on the design… this is more to troll for feedback on what else is wrong with it. :)

    Congrats. I broke 20k, fwiw. :D

    Well, SOMETHING is broken, because I was supposed to be commenting on a totally different post!

    Okay, never mind me. I get disoriented easily. The comments are in the right place, now if only I could find my brain.

    How do you NOT see the splash page every time, though? It’s a bit tedious having to click through (I’m lazy as well as stupid).

    Congrats man, the design is cool, I mean even if it sucked it is very innovative and unique, making people remember it!
