Site Changes At What’s On My PC…

August 27, 2013

The landscape of information technology is constantly changing and the changes occurring now are more than ever before. I have also noticed that the landscape of blogging about information technology has changed as well, with visitor’s wanting to read less; but,  see more…

As a result, I have decided to make some changes that hopefully will be pleasing to you:

1 – The first change is that I am now posting Geek Squeaks’ on a regular basis. I have been playing around with this for about a month and it seems to be taking off quite nicely. Geek Squeaks’ is a roundup and review of anything IT related that I think you need to know… It is also of great benefit to me, due it keeps me in touch with the IT world. Occasionally, you may see a single article or a guest post.

2 – At the top of the blog you will notice that I have changed the tabs. Two of the tabs are links that are internal to the blog (i.e. Home and About) . The new editions are four tabs that are links that are external to the blog (Bookmarks4Techs, GE Geek, Downloads and Tech News). What I am trying to do here, is give you good quality resources to current tech sites, software & apps, and tech news.

3 – I will also will be updating the sidebar and the blogroll.  Sites that are on the blogroll and have not posted during the past year will be removed.

I truly hope you enjoy the changes and feel the need to visit (and comment) on a regular basis.  What’s On My PC is closing in on the 2 million mark and I feel I may have another million left in me to keep going. Just felt the need to mix it up a little…

Two NEW Enhancements at Bookmarks4Techs.com

December 27, 2012

If you have not visited Bookmarks4Techs.com recently, I encourage you to do so. Don’t let the name of the site lead you to believe that the site is only for techs. Bookmarks4Techs is one of the largest collection of links to computer information technology sites and news on the internet. If you have a passion for computer information technology, to include software, apps, cloud computing, desktop computing, tablet computing, smartphones, etc…, then this site is for you. I can guarantee that you will keep up-to-date with the latest and greatest by visiting the links I have posted on the site.

Bookmarks4Techs.com

Not only will you find one of the largest collection of links to computer and information technology sites on the internet, you will now find two NEW enhancements to the site.

  1. Tech News – As you scroll down the listing of links, on the homepage, you will notice RSS news feeds for some of the most popular tech sites and blogs on the internet. These feeds automatically update so that when you come back to visit, there is always something new.  I actually use this to get my daily dose of tech news and to see what is new on some of my favorite blogs.
  2. Archived Blog Posts – The archive is a brainstorm idea that I came up with that list links to every single blog article ever posted at What’s On My PC. As I continue to post here at What’s On My PC, the archive at Bookmarks4Techs will continue to grow. As of today’s post, I currently have archived links to 1,457 posts.

Be Sure To Visit My Sister Site – Bookmarks4Techs

November 5, 2011

If you are regular visitor to What’s On My PC, you surely have noticed that I have links posted to my sister site – Bookmarks4Techs.

image

Bookmark4Techs started out as a personal project of mine as a result of managing my personal blog – What’s On My PC.  When searching for content for my blog, I found myself constantly trolling the internet in search of the latest and the greatest in computers, software, and information technology.

I found, for the matter of convenience, that if I listed the sites I regularly visited on a web page, I could troll the internet at a much faster rate (especially with today’s tabbed browsers). It was after a certain point of collecting numerous tech related websites that I realized that this collection may be of use and interest to others.  I love visiting other tech blogs (and sites) and I am constantly adding to this collection.  It is amazing how good theses sites and blogs really are.

Bookmarks4Techs is not just for techs; it is for everyone. As a matter of fact it is a great conduit to Amazon.com where I am currently serving as an affiliate. For example, if you click on the computer and accessories tab you will be redirected directly to Amazon’s site on Computer Accessories. It all has been an experiment of sorts to test out the affiliate experience (to see if it really works) and at the same time give people a launching point to other technology sites. You will find the sidebars loaded with RSS feeds to some of the best tech sites out there; plus, if you click on the Bookmarks4Techs tab you will be taken to my collection of tech sites (currently over 600 sites and growing).

Also, in an effort to draw people to Bookmarks4Techs I am constantly trolling for tech bargains and new technologies that have surfaced on the market and any other tech related products that may be of interest to you. I especially use Amazon.com, TigerDirect, Circuit City, NewEgg, and CompUSA to locate products of interest.

I ask that you “pass the word”…

What’s On My PC – 2010 in Review

January 2, 2011

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Crunchy numbers

Featured imageThe Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 280,000 times in 2010. If it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 12 days for that many people to see it.

In 2010, there were 343 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 821 posts. There were 795 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 66mb. That’s about 2 pictures per day.

The busiest month of the year was August  with 30,207 views. The most popular post that month was Locating Your Software License Keys.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were Stumbleupon, Google Reader, Bill Mullin’s Weblog – Tech ThoughtsTech-for Everyone and  Google.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for vista will not boot, firefox incognito, vista service pack 2 problems, windows vista service pack 2 problems, and old record player.

These are the posts and pages that got the most views in 2010.

New Additions to the What’s On My PC Blogroll

July 2, 2010

Just completed some link exchanges and would like to introduce the following blogs that have been added to the What’s On My PC blogroll and Launch Pad.

image I Want Ice Water – If you need a good laugh for the day, check this blog out.  It is not a tech blog; however, I decided here at What’s On My PC, we need to mix it up a little with a pinch of humor. The author of the blog is definitely someone like me. “They ain’t hitting on all cylinders!’”.  Great blog that you need to check out.

I Want Ice Water – Is a mixture of humor & seriousness that reflects my own personal philosophy of life. From growing up a poor, mixed-race kid in the 50s, 60s & 70s, to living as a depressed urban hermit in recovery, this is a collection of my pleas for reason & rationality in this global asylum. The Only Thing I’m Certain Of Is: I Don’t Know Everything!

All Of My Opinions Are Subject To Change As New Facts Come In.

Your Comments Will Always Be Welcomed.

Laptop Computer Reviews Laptop Computer Reviews – from Real Users – If you are in the market for a laptop or notebook computer, this blog is a nice place to start your research. Numerous reviews are provided for a variety of models. Appears the blog is in the initial stages of development, with software reviews in their future.  Will only get better!

The Internet’s Largest Tech Blogroll (?)

May 16, 2009

When I entered the world of blogging I soon learned that getting your blog name (link) posted on another person’s “blog roll” is an honor and nice gesture. A blogroll is a list of recommended blogs (sites) usually posted on the sidebar of a blog. In my case, here at “What’s On My PC…” , the blogroll is located on the right side of the blog.

Above the blogroll you will notice, what I call, the “Launch Pad” .  The Launch Pad is a launching point to over 150 tech blogs and sites that I visit on a regular basis.  I figured this was an excellent way to share tech sites and make it easy for you to visit those sites.  In a sense it is a blogroll on steroids…

LaunchPad( click here )

Since the inception of the Launch Pad I have been on a mission to visit and collect quality tech related blogs (and sites). Today I am adding an additional (37) blogs to the Launch Pad (see below), bringing the Launch Pad total to 182 sites. This could possibly be the largest “Tech Blogroll” out there…

When you visit the Launch Pad you will notice that some blog and site names are larger than others. Those are blogs that have committed to link exchanges with “What’s On My PC…”.  If you would like to commit to a link exchange, please leave a comment below and I will contact you.
