My blog is actually pretty good though, 17 views a day! (www.jrem95.wordpress.com) A domain name for me soon though, and yes I know I am just "renting" from wordpress, but who really cares, they are a good host and are very popular, and work with my browser when I want to blog an article. Making a site popular or a blog popular is you want something that someone wants, for instance, I provide articles and tech news, and soon to be, guides. It all depends on what audience you want to appeal to. For instance, if I wanted to attract government officials to my site, I would discuss politics and most likely make a forum so they could discuss it, or have campaigning services. If I wanted to appeal to business men I would talk about the economy and stocks and stuff like that, and have advice on what stocks to buy. Another important lesson is to not piss off your customers. If you ban them and they become some guy who is long popular and you ask them to come back, they aren't because you banned them earlier. Also, Why I dropped my GUI site is just because there are too many of them and you guys are just in this constant war against each other "Don't share this!!" Common, if you don't want to share something, you dont post it anyway, because you know some guy from your site can download and post on another site, and what are you going to do about it? Ban the guy? Ok great you just banned a huge contributor to your forum and the stuff that he released on the other guy's site is still there, you just lost 2 things instead of 1. Poor you. It's almost pointless, just share what you have and everyone can have a nice GUI, if you don't want to share its simple, just don't share it with anyone, your friends, colleges etc.
