It’s been a while since I have written a blog posting. I guess you can say life sometimes gets in the way and things we enjoy doing get pushed aside. I have a few spare moments today to sit down and write so here goes nothing.
First and foremost Webcommand blog has just turned ONE! I started writing exactly one year ago today. When I built this server I was setting a goal to write 5 blog posts a week about 260 in a year. Well I realized its harder to come up with content then I thought. I also realized it is even harder to monetize the site as well (your donations are welcome) However I did manage to write 100 blog posts in the first year and I deem that a success!
Today on the anniversary of Webcommands birth and 100th post I would like to pay tribute to my favorite blogs and give each of them a brief shout out.
My favorite Blogs
- AfterDawn https://www.afterdawn.com/
I have been reading AfterDawn for at least 10 years. They are on mission to provide cutting-edge information about digital lifestyle products and services. I enjoy all of their tech stories and the wealth of information they provide daily. The articles are well written and always informative.
- Torrent Freak https://torrentfreak.com
TorrentFreak is a publication dedicated to bringing the latest news about copyright, privacy, and everything related to filesharing. They are not a news aggregator, but focus on unique and fresh stories. TorrentFreak is where news and filesharing collide. They try to be the source of all the latest breaking news in the p2p world. I can say they are very successful in bringing the latest news to the masses and their posts are always a good read
- Car Scoops https://www.carscoops.com/
I’m not just a computer geek, I’m a car geek too. Let’s face it cars and computers have collided and the auto industry will never be the same. The Car Scoops guys write about everything from the latest auto shows to the latest tech to that viral police chase video. I look forward every morning to enjoying my cup of tea with an extra car scoop.
- EVV blog https://www.eevblog.com/
The EVV Blog is more of a video blog than anything else. The EEVblog is hosted by David L. Jones, an electronics design engineer based in Sydney Australia. In each episode he shares some of his years experience in the electronics design industry in his unique non-scripted naturally enthusiastic and passionate style. Dave has a ton of energy and explains things in an easy to understand way. He will also tackle and debunk internet and electronic myths every chance he gets.
I enjoy reading many blogs not just the four listed above, below please find a list of my favorite blogs – honorable mentions.
- Renew Cancel TV –https://renewcanceltv.com/
- Popular Science – https://www.popsci.com/
- Jalopnik – https://jalopnik.com/
- Hack-A-Day – https://hackaday.com/
Finally I like to bring all my blogs together under one roof and use a feed aggregator to make reading my favorite blogs easy and convenient. Since Google has dropped support for their feed aggregator about 10 years ago I have been using Feedly https://feedly.com . Feedly comes in both a free and pro version and does a phenomenal job of getting news you can use all in one place. I highly recommend feedly if you have not already given it a try.
Well there you have it my 100th blog post and one year of writing a blog. I know my blog and posts are not very popular but in all honesty I really don’t care. If you stopped by and read this or any of my articles great! Thank you so much. If no one ever reads this, I consider it an exercise in writing in an attempt to further my knowledge and creativity. In other words this blog is a labor of love.
Thanks again for reading my blog.
Please remember to visit my Etsy shop for some really cool handmade tech gear.
