The Gadget Lounge points to several rumours that we might finally get an ITunes Music Store in Australia. But do I get excited as we have seen this before.
Amy Gahran posts on an interesting metric that Regina might be interested in, link per thousand circulation. While more suited for mainstream new sites or A-list bloggers it does begin to show how metrics can be developed to answer the question “How successful is my blog?”
Update:- Just found that Lee Lefever from CommonCraft is running an experiment on Google rankings for his web site and the words “social design”
Steven Kempton (The Asia Pacific Headhunter) wrote an interesting letter to NZ Herald with some very important advice to job seekers, you have to work at it to find a job.
(BTW I am really begining to like the change to WordPress.)
Today when the major vendors are pumping millions and millions into their products it does become very hard for a second tier vendor to keep up, unless they have a very specific niche. This however does not limit new entrants, the issue with Lawson and others is they have an installed base which is hard to move.
Hi after several weeks of thought I have decided to move this blog to a new home. From now on I will be using WordPress and be based at www.specht.com.au. Each old post on this site will have a pointer to the new site, I have already updated the feed so you do not have to do anything.
Farewell Blogger, hello WordPress and my own domain.
Welcome to my new WordPress blog at my new domain. I have been planning to move to a new domain for many months now and given what is going on at work where I might be without a job soon I thought it was time to get cracking. I have also become very disappointed with Blogger in the last few weeks, mainly around reliability and features, last week was the final straw. I wrote a nice long review of CVOz.com.au only to have Blogger die as I submitted the post, I could not go back (which sometimes saves the post) as Blogger was down.
So on Friday I bought a domain (or two) and in the last three days set up a very basic home for me to migrate to, so welcome. Over the coming weeks I will be added several more things to the specht.com.au domain and undertaking some customising of the WordPress environment (once I have learned what to do).
I have yet to decide if I will move my old posts here from what I have read the process seems easy enough but there are a few gotta’s to watch out for. Right now there is a pointer in all of the old posts to this new site.
Great to see Anne Barlett-Brag calling for podcasting to enter education. Having seen the increase in productivity from my wife now she can download her lectures same day from Macquarie Uni there is huge potential.

Regina from BNet Blogs asks an interesting question. How do you measure the success of a blog strategy?
There are many items out there that can help you develop your measures. At the end of the day you need to have a clear measure for success, like when Jeremy Wright auctioned his blogging service on eBay.
