Hey Meta,
Long time no talk, but I have been away getting chopped up by doctors.

I have no idea why your blog views have dropped off, I still read them, and I still think they are great! I have asked you this before about YouTube, but there is a ground of so many people who would view your work, while it may be a bit frustrating at least you could get views.

Also do you advertise your blog anywhere?

the blog is linked to the website, I post stuff to it on message boards now and then. I've listed it with Google and other such things a long time ago.

I can't figure out how to get going with Utube. I don' t know anything about how to do it and I don't have a cell phone or any kind of camera or anything. I don't have the slightest idea how to go about it. I would like to do that so I can advertise my book when it's ready.

I don't think your blog is dying. Maybe it's just going through a slump.

I do think if you got a "recent comments" section, it might pick up. :D

It shows the most recent comments to any post in the side column so folks can easily see which posts are getting attention. To get one:

Go to your blog.

Click on the link to go to your dashboard.

Look at the Manage Blogs section at the top of the page, and find the entry for Metacrock's Blog.

Click on the link to Design for that blog.

You will see the basic layout of your blog, including the side bar. At the top is a link to Add Gadget. Click it.

A list of gadgets will appear. On the left hand side of the list is a link to Featured gadgets. Click it. Scroll down until you see one called "Recent Comments". Add it.

You can move it up or down in your sidebar layout to put it where you want it.

Save your changes when you are done.

Possibly because as you get more and more strident (and less and less rational) in your attacks on atheists, more and more people see it for what it is - an outlet for your obsessional hatred, rather than an actual examination of atheists and atheism.
