    Python is my favorite language to code in. Been playing around with starting a python blog a really long while. I have with me a hude collection of word documents that i composed myself documenting my learning of the language. So that i would Not have to go hunting through documentations. Its got loads of tips and tricks and code examples i worked with myself, and solved.

    I wanted to create a blog for newbie to python. Hmmm.. on a related note, would i get a better SE ranking if I posted all my posts to the onlien blog in the span of an hour using my blog synochoniser (desktop with online) or if i updated the blog leisurely over the span of say.. a month ?

    My thanks to python forum members, who's answers have really helped. I havent asked many questions there, and the ones I have, are realy stupid. but now I know better. But the Advanced Forum search turn up most answers i need.

    You need a high amount of content straight away, then submit it. you should then be looking for about 3 updates per week. Then have a robots.txt and a sitemap.xml file in addition. Then make sure the code is good and keyword stuffed. (try using <strong> tags but using CSS to set them to un-strong )

    I have enough content for first up content .. 169 posts on my desktop blog !!. I'll have to edit them slightly before they are fit fior online use though. I was thinking of just using a blogger account for the blog, tied with my adsense account.

    Updates a week are not an issue. I usually update thepython blog about 10 to 11 times a week.

    My other blogs which are almost ready to go online are typically about 50 posts each (3 of em )..

    I have used sematic markup for the template of my posts so no problem there. And I already have a CSS template i quite like.
    oh well will get it up and running in the new year along with my other web projects

    I've been roaming on C forum for a while now... And I must say that lot's of ppl (including me) do owe a huge thanks (at least) to:
    Scorpy (Scorpions4ever)
    Sally (Salem)
    The D (Dave Sin... how the hell is it spelled???)
    Mv (mv*t*yl)
    Kicked (Kicken)

    EDIT*
    Sorry Nattie, I did forget you O_O
    So Nattie (nattylife) can be added to the list.
    EDIT2*
    Same goes for ZuK

    I know I should have done this approx 3 months ago (:wink wink:) but I was afraid since I know I do forget too many names from this list...

    Also thanks to lot's of people who have tolerated my presence in php (and linux, apache etc.) forums, when I have posted something that has not been true. (Due to the fact that I have thought something is true... Unfortunately me thinking so won't make it true...)

    Oh, and I do also wish to thank DarkLord.

    Just a note to say Thanks!


    I just wanted to thank everyone on this forum who has helped me so far with all the projects I have been working on.

    Life has been better since I actually learned how to use arrays, things such as 70 line if() statements have been taken down to about 5 lines thanks to the help of people like SimonGreenHill, jharnois and jafet... sorry if I forgot anyone..

    Anyhow, I was just going over some old code and revising it with arrays, and just thought of how much help you guys have been to making things run a lot faster.

    Keep up the great work

    Thumbs up PHP/MySQL gurus: Thank you to all who have helped me!


    I just wanted to say "Thanks" to everyone who has took the time to help me on my path towards PHP and MySQL enlightenment!

    Everyone here is so NICE and HELPFUL! You guys answer my questions so quickly, too! I love programming, and have just begun to learn PHP and MySQL, so I'm sure some of my questions have been major newbie-type questions, but you guys are so patient and helpful! I feel welcome here, and I hope I can return the favour in the future to other newbies when I am more experienced!

    I thought it would be more fitting to say "Thanks" here, since I would have ended up "bumping" my previous threads. But you know who you are!

    I am using Welling and Thomson's "PHP and MySQL Web Development" book to help me with my studies - any other newbies here using this text? When I'm done with it, where do I go? I'd like to work towards certification, but according to Amazon ratings, the Zend books don't seem to be very good.

    I first got interested in PHP and MySQL when my brother showed me some work he was doing involving a database where he listed his CD collection and concerts he had been to and reviews on the concerts. It was really neat and whetted my appetite for learning it (I've taken classes in C, Visual Basic, and Assembly in college) and I wanted to update my skills and get into web development and design.

    How did you guys get interested in PHP?

    Anyway, I love this forum! I wish it was around in '93-'97 when I was taking programming classes!

    So what is this "reputation" thing here? If I click on the "scales" icon and post to someone that has helped me that I "agree" do they get some sort of bonus?

    Anyway, gotta go!

    *~ Miaow ~*

    Hello Miaow,

    let me Welcome you to Devshed, i hope you enjoy your stay here, i am here from last 2 years and i learnt a lot, and wish you the same.


    As far as your query about reputation is concerned, i suggest you to first go through the forum rules well.

    http://forums.devshed.com/forum-rules-guidelines-127/rules-the-general-rules-thread-271402.html

    as you are a newbie and don't have received reputation points from other members yet, your reputation power is 0. you will be able to give reputation in near future, but for now just concentrate on posting good stuff and try exploring and learning different forums on devshed.

    i can give you 1 point of repo to welcome you!


    regards
    Wapindya
