Another month another milestone here on Samir Bharadwaj dot Com. This monthly report is a bit special because it makes this blog 6-months old. With milestones comes a natural process of looking back and planning forward. In the last six months I have made many mistakes and learnt a lot of new tricks, so it is natural for me to want to make some changes.
I have nothing drastic in mind, but I know of a lot of things that aren’t working well on this site, and many things that could be working better. In the coming months the plan is to do a comprehensive rethinking and refactoring of this site and blog, mainly on a coding and technical level. There are browser compatibility issues to be ironed out and cleaner SEO techniques to be employed. All of these things will make this site better, faster and more effective in the long run.
Not only will this process give me immense personal pleasure and satisfaction, but it will make for a better browsing experience for my readers, which is always a goal to aspire to. In addition, I think a series of articles that describe all the changes I make and the techniques I implement will make for some educational reading, and it should be fun to put together once this is all done. Subscribe to my RSS feed and watch out for those updates.
Blog Action Day, 2007 is done, and my series on The Environmental Movement and Why It’s Not Working also came to a close this last month. But not before leading me in a new direction in my interest in the environmental movement. As elaborated in my final post and announcement on Blog Action Day, I will be working on a new site on the environment soon, one that should bring a new and refreshing twist to the subject matter.
I wasn’t very active on the blog carnival scene this past month. So much so that I might have lost track of one or two carnivals that did link to my posts during this phase. Sorry folks, I usually link back to all you kind people who include me in your listings but I’ve slipped up a bit on this occasion. I will make it up to you in the future.
Rethink, redo, and reengineer — that is what is in store for this site in the near future. The (hopefully) interesting content and the look isn’t going to change, but the inner workings should be changing for the better
