Hey, it's great you have a blog and all, but you are not really contributing to the board at all.  Of your 7 posts, 4 of them are,basically, you just announcing a new post to your blog and the rest are you throwing a one sentence remark and then pushing everyone to your site.

If you want people to read your blog, put a link in your signature and start contributing.  When people start seeing you have relevant things to say, they will go to your blog.  Right now you just look like a spammer and advertiser.

I concur.  I swear I made a similar comment on another of his thread posts that every thing he has to contribute should not include a shameless plug for his blog.  I did not think I was too harsh, but I cannot find the comment now.  Maybe a moderator removed it.  Good suggestion about putting it in his signature.  Hopefully he will take it to heart.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot and your left.
