Do we have time for all ?

The blogosphere is huge. I'm not going into the numbers. But believe me its larger than we assume it to be. For the nos. check out the annual study by technorati

It is true that Information pertaining to any subject is scattered across the web. When i come across a new word/terminology the first place i go is Wikipedia. Then probably do a Google blog search. Sometimes it drives me crazy seeing tons of information that i know for sure i won't be able to grasp in a single day/month/year. I bookmark a few of the interesting ones, based on the layout of the blog and its design :) (I cannot read the content all the time) It is rare that i return to them.

My question is how much time one has to allocate to do this work(grasping info)?
Do we really grasp what we read and or do we ever use it the way we want to ?
But one think is certain reading is a good habit. Maybe it will come to use someday.

Looking back, our daily source of information starts with the morning newspaper,
then two 1/2 hr news everyday. Didn't we get enough that time ?

Future ?? You all know where we go.

Wondering how it would be to block yourself from information for a month.
Guess, you will become outdated. :D

Website - How should it be?

Your website is your face in the online world. It is your identity.
What should a website have to get a high page rank. To gets its share of visitors.

To make a difference.

Answers is simple:

It should have content.

It should have unique content.

The least it should have its own style.
Things to avoid.
  • No jargon.

  • No high fi words.

Even if it is going to be a single page. Everyone should like it for what it is.
Never let it run through more than 3 pages. Max. 5
I strongly believe that what you want to say is little. Its always how you put it.
People don't have time to read your stories. Don't have the notion that if you have 6 pages, then you might be taken for a guy with lots of content. No, even a single picture can say a lot about you and your business.

Value your viewers time. Give them what they want in a few lines.
If they visit your site for the first time, make them remember about your site.
