My Network Updates

Few Left Standing
I have changed the blog theme again, to something more simple. I installed the All In One SEO Pack plugin for Wordpress, along with the Related Posts plugin. I’ve also installed the Wordpress Auto Updater plugin, which is going to save me a lot of time updating my various sites running on Wordpress.

Pagerank update is very imminent, and I am confident that my blog will achieve a PR of 5. Well, that’s what I’m hoping, anyway.

New blog
I’m working on a new blog. I’ve purchased the domain from someone, it was registered in 2005. I’ve installed Wordpress, a nice theme, and a some plugins for it. I’m currently writing some posts for it, and I will post the url here once I get it started.

It is a nice niche, and once the site starts getting a lot of traffic, I will work on starting a forum for it.

My Forum
The forum is actually doing well, I’ve been letting it simmer for awhile. The developer of the custom script finally answered me, and let me know that I didn’t have one of the files chmod’d properly! Doh! Now the script is working properly, and I can move on with promoting the forum.

There are a few new members that are bringing some other members back to the forum, this is because Email Notification is on by default, so when new members reply to slightly older threads, everyone who posted in that thread receives an email. Most people don’t bother to turn it off.

I’m still looking at a few different monetization methods for the forum, as most web developers know, forums can be the hardest type of site to monetize. I’m planning on a mix of pay per click advertisements, and affiliate offers.

Along with all of the above, I’m working on several other sites, all in different stages of completion. One of them is another forum, which is already ready to go, I’m just waiting until September to launch it. There is a small bug that I need to fix, regarding the quote system.
