Are Personal Websites/Blogs Passé?
I have a love/hate relationship with my personal website/blog. When I started this site almost 9 years ago, social networking wasn’t even in the vocabulary of the internet, and personal branding was a must have. Fast forward to 2012, and Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn are ubiquitous, and Tumblr is a... Read More...

Windows Live Writer Beta
It took me a couple of tries to get the new Windows Live beta package installed on my machine; the secret fix for me was to enable the Windows Firewall service (I disable it since I’m behind other firewalls), so if your install is failing, turn on the Firewall service. You can turn it off again after... Read More...

JK.com -- Feedburner Pro Enabled
I posted a while back about the Feedburner MyBrand service ...I've been taking it for a spin on some other low traffic feeds and am nothing less than blown away, so JK.com is now Feedburner enabled and ready to rock. Community Server 2007 has built in support for Feedburner out of the box; it's... Read More...

Linked To By Wiki -- Note To Self, Write Better Articles
I recently noticed a reasonable spike in traffic around here a few days ago; turns out an entry of mine got linked to by a Wiki article (no, I didn't make the link from Wiki myself ;-)). The point of this entry isn't to garner kudos or pat myself on the back (of course the ego points do make me feel... Read More...

Feedburner MyBrand Service -- Brand Your Feedburner Feed
I've had a Feedburner account for a while now, but have been reluctant to throw the switch on my site's feeds over to it...while I may not have a huge circulation (and therefore no "brand" to adhere to), I'd like to keep what little recognition I do have in my feed address instead of the generic feedburner...

Yet Another Weblog To Make You...errrm, Nevermind
Well, I had an elaborate post all planned out to announce a new personal blog I'm starting (need to keep work and play somewhat separated) and was going to use Live Spaces...only to find out over the past couple of days just how much LS absolutely blows. Last night I arranged all my widgets on the site... Read More...

jaysonBlog Turns Three
I cannot believe it's been 3 years since I first decided to build my own blogging engine as a coding exercise one lonely night back in 2003, and here I am still pounding away at the keyboard in an attempt to keep my 5 loyal readers somewhat entertained. The most notable thing that happened to my site... Read More...

Bon Voyage Weblogs.Asp.Net Feed
During my last round of Rss feed pruning, I finally deleted weblogs.asp.net (it's been a long time coming). Too many of the following: Duplicate posts about the same news item. Posts linking to other posts on weblogs.asp.net essentially saying "yeah me too" or "so-and-so posted about the following."... Read More...

New Content Section Added to JK.com
I've created a new section on my site to aggregate external content that I read on a regular basis: My External News Feed . This is similar to the old CS2.0 Roller application, except that configuration is much more flexible. It's more of a way for me to keep up with the most common external sites I... Read More...
