After integrating feedburner with my blog I decided it would be a good idea to add it to some of my other sites. I really never used RSS feeds on any of my sites. My main sites do not use a CMS so its not like there is an RSS feed that you can easily enable and your all setup. I was lucky enough to be using cutenews on ThinkGaming so I can make a news feed of the latest news posts by just enabling it in cutenews. Thats all I really wanted on ThinkGaming because the actual site content does not get updated that often. Now for ThinkComputers I wanted an RSS feed of the actual content. This meant I had to actually hand code the RSS feed. It was a pain in the ass!! Well 2 and a half hours later and about 20 runs through the RSS Feed Validator I finally had an RSS feed for ThinkComputers content. You can check out the Feedburner link here.
Also while surfing the sitepoint forums a couple of days ago I came across a gaming site called GamersMark selling a few advertising spots. It was one of the first sites that I have seen selling advertising that I could actually use. Gaming and Computers are one in the same so I decided to buy a month’s worth of advertising on their 468X60 spot for ThinkComputers. I will see if there is any traffic increase from this purchase.
This is my first post of the month so I calculated my earnings, and I was not that excited. I really slacked off the last part of the month so I only increased my daily average by 1 dollar a day. Oh well it is a new month so we will see how things go!!
