Guy Fawkes, top man....

Guy Fawkes, are we not misunderstood with this man?
Having been vilified every year on bonfires all over the country for the powder plot and each generation keeping up these traditions half blindly, even sharing the moment with our kids as a celebration but never really saying why or even if they agree with it.

Have you with your kids?

Knowing what we know about those who work in that same building and what they have done to the country and indeed also having an influence on worldwide politics in some way or other, what they have done to the people, their values and what it meant to be British.

Have these people betrayed our past generations who fought, died and lived after losing loved ones to keep Britain from the clutches of outside rule?

Knowing what a shower of traitors who work in that building don't you feel Guy was onto something?

Have those people and they are a "type" (always the higher class, ie snobs) really changed much from Guy's time?

Did he know something we don't?

Or have we chosen not to see it?

Turn a blind eye?

If you are going to burn a guy on the bonfire try and stick this mask on top of it...he sold us down the river with the EU, if you can't find his mask, Blair's will do, same agenda from both, same lack of respect for the people of the UK.



The last person to leave the UK...will you please turn out the lights!

Take a step back...






Taking a step back can give you a view you initially miss...Often too late... ;o)

No good blaming anything but lack or focus and foresight.

"Blogrush?...um, well, it sucks"

Well I wrote earlier about blogrush and asked...why bother?

A few days later and looking around it seems people think it sucks!

I couldn't say, It IS a FAIL!!!
I didn't have any idea what was happening with mine but now...
My stats have appeared in my blogrush dashboard.

A few things that bother me are...

I understand it's in beta, and opinions are raging all over forums and blogs about it.

Addressing the concerns I have...

Low CTR rate....write better captivating titles...like the one used here. ;o)

I could do a search around to see if I can find out how to know which blogs widget drove me the visitor, this may well be part of the process being refined during the beta stage.

That blurb...Not happy with that, the wording had NO mention of blogrush, just saying this is temporarily down but the site will soon be fixed.

IF I was the reader I would have assumed it was the blog itself that was down, or that part of it at least.

NOT looking good doing that!
That blurb should be changed.

So, what about my opinion on if "it sucks"?

I think it's early to say, the traffic I have had from it is very small, almost nothing, of 660 impressions I got ONE click!  It SUCKED!!

That's rubbish, I am GIVING more than GETTING with blogrush.

I will give it a week or less if things don't improve fast.

I know John will improve dumped it, but how fast is the key. bloody good job too, crap.

It is pyramidal feeling, MLMY if you like, and yet it was the early adopters, Johns friends, inner circle, and the big influential bloggers that stand to benefit the most.

If you have a brand new blog, hardly any traffic I would skip it! ;o)

What's your opinion? It's DEAD.... ;o)

"Blogrush! Why bother?"

Many of you will know about this by now as it's plastered all over the net, and yes it's on here too and I DO think if you have yet to add it to your blog you should (updated) a massive FAIL!

So why ask why don't bother?

If you know of John Reese you know he knows traffic, how to get it and make the most of it.
There lies the reason it should have worked, not failed as bad as it did!

More importantly you can get a better idea of what it does for your blog now, and as it improves you learn things from the info you saved.

Make no mistake John's own sites will have had MASSIVE traffic lately and THAT info is worth a huge amount, John knows what to do to make the most of it and YOU only he benefited from that.

I do hope it will be a success. (It failed)

Knowing now what it does with your blog and what shows up now will mean you can take notes on what to filter as soon as able to, this then becomes the basis for your future testing as it improves from the admins tweaks.

You can then just keep improving what links you do want on your blog by way of blocking what you don't like, and filtering words you don't want.

That's why I got dumped it now.

But also you will notice I am not promoting this elsewhere, just going to keep on blogging as normal, so I get a real idea of what it has done in the normal scheme of things. ;o)

Then I can test and tweak with better accuracy.

If you have a blog, don't waste your time on this crap!
