Technology Bloggers is comming

Later on today, or possible later in the week, Technology Bloggers will officially launch.

For those of you who read around my other sites and blogs, you will probably know that my technology blog is dying to make way for a brand new blog.

This is going to be a community blog which everyone owns, and everyone benefits from.

The main focus of the blog is to get mass participation, yes I own the domain, but I don’t want to be writing all the articles, I don’t want to be replying to all the comments, I want the community to reply to the comments, I want the community of the very best writers to write the articles.

Everyone participates, everyone benefits.

Think you are up to the challenge? Head over to TechnologyBloggers.org and get ready for the launch. If you fancy your hand at being one of the authors, go create your free technology bloggers account and get writing!

Technology Bloggers, a community blog, for all to benefit…

A scary thought

I have just had a really scary thought. If I were to die right now, my writing on this blog would still live on for a few weeks.

I would be dead and yet some of my content would yet to be published.

This ‘death defying’ trick can be done all thanks to the WordPress schedule post feature. This post was not actually written on the 11th of February, but the 23rd of January instead.

An article scheduled for the 11th of February 2011

An even scarier thought is that by the time this scheduled post about scheduled posts gets out, I could have gone under a bus, got hit by a train or had a heart attack.

What a terrible thought.

Hopefully I am not dead and hopefully my server isn’t down so on the 11th of February 2011 you are able to read this scheduled post 🙂

Scheduled posting is very handy for me and for you. For you it means you have a constant stream of new content, and for me it means I can manage my time more effectively.

For example today (23rd of January not 11th of February) I have written three articles. This is because sometimes I can be in a great mood for writing, so I just write and write and write. But then when I am too busy or my writing cap isn’t firmly screwed on, I might now write anything for days.

What’s your opinion on this – is scheduled posting a good thing?
