A major change in the direction of the Global Geek News Blog

Greetings readers!

After last weeks post saying that this month will be do or die for the blog, I decided there is no use in delaying the inevitable.  While it looks like things might turn around now that the holiday is over, I have decided that it is time for a change.  This change won’t be a completely unfamiliar change, but it is a departure from my recent blogging strategy.

A short time ago, I announced that in effort to get the blog to grow, I would start doing small posts throughout the day to make sure you get the latest in tech news.  Unfortunately, for the amount of reads that the posts go, it wasn’t worth the time suck that it had become.  So I am officially announcing that my idea of doing small posts throughout the day is dead.  However,I am not killing the blog!  I am committed to continuing to do my signature long posts at least a couple of times a week if not daily if I can manage it.  Don’t be afraid, I won’t let you go without your news!

As a replacement to the short posts, I am resurrecting the Geek News Daily Podcast!  Starting tomorrow, (July 8th) the Geek News Daily podcast will return in a new and improved format that will make sure you get all of the important news every day.  It generally takes me much less time getting out a podcast than it does finding and writing up a bunch of small stories which is why I made this decision.

Did you like the short posts?  Do you prefer text over audio?  I have you covered there too!  As I announced on the Global Geek News Podcast several weeks ago, I am writing short posts very much like you saw on here over at TechVi.com.  A team of people including myself post stories throughout the day to make sure you don’t get behind on the latest tech news.  Also make sure to check out the daily video with the site’s owner, Randall Bennett as it is an  awesome show.

Speaking of video, you know how I mentioned last week how I wanted to branch into video?  That is still in the cards although I seem to be having a hard time finding some good webcam recording software so that I can record the video.  If you have any recommendations for some good webcam recording software that works on Windows 7, please post them in the comments.

Anyway, that is all of the news that affects the blog, now a quick note for the podcast.  Wesley is out of town this week, so there will not be a show released today like normal.  Instead, I will either do a solo show that will be released tomorrow or Thursday or I will bring on a guest host to fill in for Wesley for this week.  Things will be back to normal next week.
