i swear no matter how many times I promote my site I never seem to get any more comments
Don't write for the readers. Write for yourself. Blaugh hardly gets an average of 0.5 comments per post, by my reckoning, compared to (just pulling this out of the air here) the Mecha Fetus Visu Blog, which gets probably 7 per post from readers that find their way through from Pirate Baby or Kings of Power.
^ Exactly. Sure, you want to cater to a certain audience, but ultimately, your site (blog or not) should be something you love to visit at the end of a long night. Do what you want to see first and foremost, the rest is optional.

The site in my sig is about an old PC game series. The 1st game was distributed by Apogee back in the day, so if you're a PC gamer, chances are you've played it.
There was also a sequel (Which, unlike the 1st game, seems to be true abandonware, as despite some hints awhile back, nothing new for the franchise seems to be on the horizon. The 1st game is now freeware by the way).
Anyway, that's my site. I have a few others, but my game website is the only one I work on these days. Like most, I haven't updated for a bit.

Great to see the new site. I'll put it up on my LINKS next update. Good luck with it, Rob!
EDIT: Rob, when you can, can you please adjust my URL on your site from rvgfanatic.com to rvgfanatic.com/301.html ? Thanks. The latter address takes the user to the current page while the former is outdated for whatever reasons unbeknownst to me
Basically, it's a story series I've been working on ever since 2000. Currently it's set in the same universe as Strider, but by the time Book I is over, 98% of the videogame references in the series (not just Strider, but also Gradius, Run Saber, Cannon Dancer and Splatterhouse) will be gone and we'll be moving into completely original territory.
But don't just listen to me about it... sotenga and Allen probably have something to say about it too.
