Some Linux Blog News!

Hey there guys and gals,

I’ve got a few pieces of news to report today, mostly to do with this site so if you are interested, give it a read. If you couldn’t care less then skip right along to the next post :)

Advertising
I will be adding the adbard network to this site one day soon, which will get rid of the Google ads and display some that are more of an open source theme. I may from time to time pop in some links to Amazon affiliate links to help with the costs involved in running this site. I don’t think that you’ll mind, and besides you don’t really have a choice. If you don’t want to see advertisements; learn How to set up a Squid Proxy Server.

I’ve changed my name!
I’ve changed my name (not legally) to display as TheLinuxBlog.com. I’ve done this because many people syndicate my content and are not correctly attributing my work. Don’t worry, I’ll still post guest posters names and sign my posts with my name so you’ll know its me (But I doubt you care anyway, just as long as there is decent content here or you find the answer to the Linux problem that has you stumped.)

Feeds Shortened
I’ll be shortening my RSS feed in effort to draw more people to participate in the site. After all, we all like comments and contributions, so why not contribute? This may also help out with spam also. If you’d still like my full feed in your RSS feed reader, send me an e-mail or leave a comment and I’ll hook you up with a private feed.

Artwork
For those of you that enjoy laughing I mean, reading my blog I’ll be providing some artwork. I’d appreciate links to me with or without the artwork. I may in the future start giving out free swag so be on the lookout!

Thanks for your interest and time,

– Owen.

Firstly I would like to welcome a new writer to The Linux Blog his name is Andrew. Those of you who paid attention will have noticed that he wrote last Sundays shell scripting article. This was a huge favor for me since I was at the beach and did not have any internet access. His biography is in the works but in the mean time I would like everyone to give Andrew a nice warm Linux Blog welcome.

And now for another apology.

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted much here recently, I have been very busy. I do however have lots of half written articles and many more articles to write. If there is a particular topic that any one would like me to blog about, send me an email to owen -at- thelinuxblog.com.
