Beat that Technology Blog!
We bloggers, often have so little time spending into the blogs of others. We tend to be very centered in our own blog or blogs. Of course that is very obvious and a very reasonable fact. Why? We have a lot of things to do with our own blogs beautifying, posting, submitting SEO directories, linking and many more activities. We, bloggers, sometimes miss the more fun stuffs in the blogosphere, and that is to enjoy our fellow bloggers' work and blogs.
The facade of the blog....
Although I am not referring to everyone when I said that, I have to really insist that at least 90% of us all spend more or all of our online times on our blogs alone without minding much what is going on around in the blogs of others. Naturally, there is still the 10% who are happy to read their admired bloggers and of course, maybe, with my estimate, there is another 5-10% margin of error to my estimate.
Today however, I discovered the beauty of a blog. It is actually a technology-related blog and it is owned by a passionate blogger, Michael Aulia. It is actually in the heading and title, stating the owner and the theme of the blog. I actually go around this blog for it is very unline mine. I tend to make very long posts and this one, more on interesting briefs.. short articles with very interesting contents. Take for example the post on virtual actors and actresses: it is not too long post but all is there. In fact, this post really caught my attention... how about you? Are you interested to be a fan of hollywood virtual actor or actress?

Moving on, I still walked around the blog and see what I can get and learn. And lo! There are entrecard guides as well as guides to new bloggers. It can be found in the head tabs. The links provided are useful to all newbies on blogging as well as entre card peeps around.
The blog has actually a lot of feature I envy. Thatis why I continue to just roam around the site and see what it has to offer. As the images sugest, there is the "Featured Posts" section that keeps on rolling the featured posts (of course) and under the posts/comments, there is the "Related Posts" section which is pretty helpful. For commentors with SezWho, the sezwho of this site, as well as CommentLuv is enabled. Not to mention the "Top Commenter" section featuring the site's fans. The entrecard is very visible and placed at the top most area giving ease to droppers.
The features I like are encircled or encased in a blue lines
Of course, as a person and a blogger, I have some suggestions to Michael. The title of the blog should at least stand out over the post titles. Maybe it can grow a little (just a little) bigger. Moreover, I see the 125 px ads at the right side very dominating. They are too big and tend to overshadow the posts. Aisde from those suggestions, I just find this blog very entertaining and useful.
