Is my blog in the wrong place…?


When I started this blog at the end of 2006 I chose to stick it on MSDN mainly because the set of instructions for setting a new blog up on MSDN was the only ones I could find.  Let’s be honest it can’t have been that difficult to translate the instructions from MSDN to Technet, where I think this blog would naturally sit, and I have absolutely no idea why I didn’t do that but hey it is where it is…

I have thought about cross posting or abandoning this blog and starting again on Technet but to be honest I really have no idea if that’s going to increase my readership.  Surely most blogs are located by search and a search engine will locate me just as easily on MSDN as on Technet.  ..and once someone has located your blog and with a bit of luck subscribed to a feed then what’s the difference?

Anyone got any thoughts?  By moving from MSDN to Technet will the hits start flooding in?

    I found this blog in the first place via Google as you guessed.  for a split second I thought I might not be interested because I’m not as big on MSDN as I am technet, but I saw the content and decided based on the content.  I read blogs from Microsoft and non-microsoft blogs – so the url isnt really important to me.

  2. Thanks Mike.  Google??? 🙂

    uhh i mean Live Sear… no I cannot lie.  I love Microsoft to death, and without you guys I wouldn’t be employed to deploy your technologies, but the Google search engine is better at finding technet articles than the Live Search is!  I just gotta call it like I see it!

  4. that’s absolutely fair.  ..and if it leads you to my  blog then I can’t argue.
