Here’s the very delayed and long overdue weekend roundup. I started writing the draft last week but wasn’t able to finish it. I was out the whole day Friday & Saturday and come Sunday, I went out with my wife and kid for some family time. Bloggers have a life too you know. Hehe Anyways, my apologies and I hope you enjoy this week’s roundup.

In case you haven’t noticed it yet, I’ve recently added a Poll section in the sidebar. From time to time, I’ll be posting poll questions on different topics. I’ve been wanting to do this earlier but the poll didn’t work right in my previous theme. Why add a poll? The poll is one way of getting to know who my readers are and what they’re interested in. This way I can post more about stuff that you guys are interested in. I’d appreciate it if you guys can participate and share your opinions by casting your vote in the polls.

If you have any questions, comments, suggestions or want your article to be featured in the next Weekend Roundup, feel free to leave a comment or send me a message via the contact page.

    @K – In your case, you still moderate but you do it manually. The reasons you pointed out are also some of the reasons why I moderate comments here.

    Thanks! I’m glad you guys understand. :D

  • K, February 28, 2008 @ 9:24 AM Reply

    I’d rather not moderate, but off-topic, blatantly inflammatory, or otherwise inappropriate comments, I removed them not that I have debates in my blogs, sometimes, bloggers enjoy every kind of comments, huge numbers valid or not, is irritating to read if a commentor doesn’t add substance to the post itself. And I dislike people leaving comments, “yay, I’m the first to comment”.

    No need to apologize, family comes first, of course.

    @iRonnie – I’ve been wanting to put up a poll in my blog for a long time now but I encountered some problems with my previous themes. Why don’t you try it? By using polls I’m hoping that I could learn more about my visitors/readers and also learn how I can improve this blog. :D

    Family time is very important.. BTW.. Thanks for your weekly round-up #21.

    @jhay – I guess it depends on the blog author’s discretion. In my case, I’m playing safe and I do my best to screen the comments and only display ones that are relevant. Besides there are many visitors who leave comments using keywords as their display name and use this style for SEO purposes and as a way of improving their site’s SERP. :D

  • jhay, February 27, 2008 @ 4:05 PM Reply

    I’m a bit liberal with comments on my blog. As long as it’s not spam, unrelated or libelous, it gets published.
