Yes, there are snarky programmers’ blogs other than Digitivity. A programmer in NYC has a blog called Dead Programmers’ Cafe at http://www.deadprogrammer.com/. Yeah, he’s written about dead programmers, though that’s not the main focus of the blog, which seems to be interesting or not so interesting stuff happening around New York City.
If you’re looking for an autoposting plugin for WordPress, I found one called Autoblogged while research auto-scheduling plugins. It takes RSS feeds as input, and after applying filters and rules you specify, it posts the results as blog entries on your WordPress blog.
So this marks 200 articles published on Digitivity.
It’s come a long way from having to beg Google to come and index the site site.
These days, Googlebot visits the site only minutes after a new articles is published, and it’s on the Google SERP first page for many queries within minutes after that.
So what do you like or not like about Digitivity?
What would you like to see in the future?
I just found out about a new blog aggregation site called BloggerDen.
It bills itself as Digg for bloggers. As opposed to Digg, which covers general topics with an emphasis on technology, BloggerDen is geared toward blogger-specific issues.
I encountered a problem a week or so ago with CommentLuv.
Whenever I’d go to comment on another site, CommentLuv would say there’s a feed error, and it wouldn’t let display my last blog post in the comment.

I ran across a neat website the other day that checks your blog (or non-blog website) for a number of problems.
Even if you’ve been diligent in setting up your website, there’ll probably be a few things that ismyblogworking.com can tell you.
For example, let’s take a high-traffic blog, John Chow’s. Even his blog has a number of problems.
The cbnet Ping Optimizer Plugin for WordPress allows you to avoid pinging blog indexing services too often too soon, which could get your blog banned for spammy behavior.
Here’s the step-by-step process for installing the plugin.
When you publish a post, WordPress tells a number of blog indexing services about it.
But it also does that every time you update the post, which for me is often five times in 10 minutes after publishing.
If ping them too many times, they can ban you for spammy behavior.
So, how do you avoid getting banned?
