Website Update-New & Revised Religious Essays

The Out Campaign: Scarlet Letter of AtheismI've added two new essays to my Religious Essays section, along with a collection of quotes (for anyone who reads this blog regularly, the two essays will be familiar). I've also revised most of the other essays.

Website Update - Top 10 Page List Updated for September 2009

Top 10 ListIt's a new month, so it's time for me to check back over the server logs. For anyone who's been following my little notes on these updates, now that I've gotten back into the swing of updating the blog once a week, my traffic is steadily recovering. Compared to just two months ago, which is the worst month I've had since I started keeping track, traffic is up 14.9%. Compared to last month, traffic is up 8.2%. I know I could increase my traffic quite a bit if I shamelessly self-promoted on popular blogs (everytime I post a link in a Pharyngula comment thread, I get a noticeable spike in traffic), but I try to let my posts speak for themselves, and only self-promote that way if one of my blog posts really is relevant to the topic.

Anyway, there weren't any big changes this month. Everything on the list has been on the list before.


September List

  1. Autogyro History & Theory
  2. Blog - A Skeptical Look at MBT Shoes
  3. Factoids Debunked & Verified
  4. Blog - Letter to Pharmacy about MBT Shoes
  5. Programming
  6. X-Plane as an Engineering Tool
  7. Factoids Debunked & Verified, Part II
  8. Blog - Running AutoCAD R14 in XP Pro 64
  9. Blog - A Few Comments
  10. Theoretical Max Propeller Efficiency

Website Update - Top 10 Page List Updated for June, July & August

Top 10 ListWell, the summer's over. I slacked off on this site for those months, and it definitely showed in my traffic. July was my worst site for visitors since 2007 when I started keeping track of how many people were only visiting my site to download a certain mp3. Traffic was down to 70.1% of what it was during my best month. I've started to get back into blogging again, and it appears that the downward spiral has finally bottomed out. August picked up, and was back to 74.4% of my best month. I'll try to keep putting out at least one good blog entry per week, and I'll see if my traffic picks back up to what it had been.

As normal, most of my popular pages remained popular. A couple new blog entries have found their way into the top 10 list - Response to E-mail Forward of Tea Party Speech and Running AutoCAD R14 in XP Pro 64. It's not really much of a surprise to see something political garner so many hits, but it's definitely nice to see the AutoCAD entry being so useful.

Considering that there's no real content in it or its comments, I still think that the entry, A Few Comments, is probably being visited mainly by spam bots (unless people are just really interested in Ray Comfort).

Website Update-New Pamphlet Added to Religious Essays

The Out Campaign: Scarlet Letter of AtheismI've added a new pamphlet to my Religious Essays section, A Brief Introduction to Non-Belief. I can be a bit long winded, and although I like all of the points I made in the main essays, I realized that their length might discourage people from reading them. This new pamphlet covers the most common question and misconceptions I encounter when people first learn I'm an atheist. It's short enough that it fits onto a single 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper (as long as you print on both sides). I also corrected numerous typos from the other essays while I was at it.
