The Inner Circle

Simon Phipps asked How does one penetrate the ‘inner circle’ of weblogs? And Scoble shined a big, bright spotlight on him. But while the spotlight may bring the readers out, only content will keep them coming back. Between a fickle readership and a high blog mortality rate, I figure that my best bet is to blog my interests and let the chips fall where they may.

Most of my readers have been coming from Google, searching on Ant and JUnit. So I submitted my Java Tutorials page to the Open Directory Project. And I’m pleased to say that I’m on the Beginning Java Tutorial page as of Friday. It may not be the inner circle, but it’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.
