Evaluate My Blog

According to the statistics I get from ClustrMaps and Google Analytics, this blog is getting a modest amount of attention from readers.

I'm quite new to blogging and started this blog because I was impressed, you might even say inspired, by the blogs that I've come across while surfing the web.

I also wanted to share what little knowledge I have on the topic this blog is based on and at the same time enhance my own understanding of the topics I write about.

But as people from all over are starting to reach this little corner of the web, I've become conscious of what impression my blog would give those visitors. Skepticism? Frustration? Eureka? Still no? I can keep on guessing forever and never find the right answer. I just want to know what I can do to improve this blog.

So tell me. What do you think about this blog?

Great blog. I just happen to stumble on this blog and I found it very informative. I remember the days when I was trying to develop small device applications. I was using .net though. Your blog sparks my interest once more on continuing my journey with SDA programming. Thanks for sharing.

Oy, Sheijin, try NetBeans, pre.

Well, I just found a link to your blog at netbeans.org, so I can't tell anything about the content yet, but I can say it looks good :) Btw, how did you get syntax highlighting to work?

Devlin said...

Thanx :).

Oh, it's just css and javascript. I got it from here: google-code-prettify

I'll see what I can do. But in the mean time you can use Teleport Pro(not free) or HTTrack(free) to download the whole website for off-line viewing.

Thanx :)

As long as Google allows this site to stay and the blog service continues it will live on, :P.

LOL, who wouldn't want to get employed by Sun? But I think getting into Sun is like getting interviewed by Steve Jobs on a bad day in the early days of Apple (have you ever watched Pirates of Silicon Valley? heh)

Great blog! I've found it to be very useful for my mobile game development.
Will you be posting a tutorial on MIDP sound? I've discovered that when using the MIDP sound methods, my sounds never play immediately but with a slight delay. I've also noticed that when music is playing in the background, the game generally slows down a bit.

Cheers!

Hey Nice blog. Truly Useful!! Your theme is too dark that makes it difficult to read things. Eyes go dizzy because of it. It looks great but troubles a lot while reading. Hope you put up some light version of same theme. :-)

Cheers

An important blog of all blogs, this is like a library of JavaME tutorials.

btw, any good open source games (or the ones you made) in all kinds of game genre, that I(or other followers of this blog) could use a reference?

thanks!!
