Successful Blogging Can Be a Disaster

Many of you may have wondered why NewEnergyandFuel went down this week for 24 to 48 hours, depending on where your closest Internet nameserver is in relation to NewEnergyandFuel.  Its simple, the old hosting firm threw the site overboard and served the Account Suspended page instead when successful blogging overtook their skills and patience.

The old host’s claim was the site was using too much ‘CPU’ an assertion not at all the same as the new host.  But on the way of figuring out what to do, this writer and infrequent administrator learned that WordPress as a blogging program is well known to be a CPU and memory hog as visitor numbers get higher.

Thanks to all of you, that’s what happened.  Newenergyandfuel has gone from a tiny site to a ‘moderately successful site’ as the various forums about WordPress problems put it.  There are tens of millions of blogs; just a few thousand ever get to the hundreds or (trouble zone) thousands of visitors a day.  That’s where this site has gotten too.  That means – many major thanks to all of you.

Moving such a thing as this size of blog isn’t so simple either.  It’s nearly a gigabyte in size, after compression into the zip file.  Then one is leaving a firm with its own thoughts on configuring servers to another with its own view on configuration.  All the steps, recovering from the unannounced site closing, to trying to solve the problem instead of the old host’s desire to fix the problem with blame and a twenty fold increase in the cost, then realizing that a new firm is needed, choosing one, then getting the data out, and finally reinstalling the WordPress program platform into the new server and lastly, I hope, getting it to run with the new server configuration.

That requires a host support department much more sophisticated than first thought.  Knowhow, skill, knowledge and patience are needed.  Plus an ability to cope with a badly shook site admin with limited skills that are seldom used.

Writing a blog and getting some success isn’t for the faint of heart, there will come a day when the volume of traffic will bite ya.

There are just uncounted blogs about blogging and making money with them.  Two and a half years ago I did have a look, and still get bombarded with emails for the latest ‘trick.”

The advice that made sense was write about what interests you, be consistent, stay with it.  Which is what this writer has done.  No, it isn’t making great sums or even noteworthy amounts of money, it does pay its’ way and a little more now.  The payoff comes from the about 20 to 30,000 unique visitors a month.  This site has had more than 4.2 million visitors learn, become informed, get inflamed or find an agreeable view.  If anything, one hopes more questions formed, generating more knowledge – more widespread.

What this writer, infrequent administrator, and blogger learned (in lieu of advice) is that when my situation got to about 700 visitors a day the serving got slower, the support more surely, and finally an end.  In researching the problem I saw a host’s name come up, one that seems to be for blogs getting to ‘moderately successful’ called Doreo.com.  Doreo has a special support man, Frank, who is Gold.

The fixes are coming in; the site as of this writing is accessible and serving much of the Internet.  Frank, and it is Frank, solving the problems that comes from an install done in one set of circumstances and moving it up several levels for the new circumstances.

For my friends out there, if blogging is in mind, this site is now hosted at Doreo.  Doreo.com isn’t a huge hosting firm where support is curt, time consuming and hit or miss.  It’s even a little lower cost than many, but when over a thousand people are looking every day, smart configuration, expertise in the technical and personal aspects of support are crucial.

This writer will be out now for a few days.  Over 600 pages are on the site now; a wee bit of vacation might be in order.  But I’m going to miss it.  Or writing a thousand words per day, maybe not . . .

Finally, if you’re blogging or thinking to, WordPress is a good platform.  It will work from the beginner to the New York Times web site.  But if it works for you and your visitors, be forewarned, you’re going to need a Doreo level of hosting.  And a Frank made from gold.

Alternative energy research and royalty investments

For a number of years, as oil prices declined during the mid-1980s, government funding for alternative energy sources faded. Now, though, with resurfacing concerns over energy, researchers are looking for alternatives for meeting our national energy needs. Too much reliance on oil imports weakens us politically. Plus, fossil fuels are finite resources which cannot meet our energy needs forever. These reasons have renewed interest in researching alternatives. This renewed focus could create opportunities for the knowledgeable investor to make money through royalty investments.

There are a number of energy options being explored, each with its own advantages and drawbacks. Solar energy offers the advantage of being limitless. The trick is channeling it into a usable form. Although the sunshine is free, the hardware and the labor for converting it to usable electricity can be very pricey. Wind is a fast-growing energy source, but it still accounts for just 1 percent of electrical production. The noise of wind farms can be annoying, and if those farms are established in remote areas, it is difficult to transport the energy they produce. Fuel from plants (biofuel), particularly corn, has been utilized more and more in recent years. Ethanol is generally an effective substitute for petroleum. However, critics assert that too much diversion of crops and farm land for fuel production drives up food prices.

Even as the research into these alternatives increases, many of the solutions remain years away from implementation. Our over-dependency upon foreign oil sources is a problem today, so what can be done more immediately? First of all, we can make better use of the oil and natural gas reserves available right here in this country. In fact, we have greater stores of natural gas than any other country. Secondly, further development could be done with geothermal energy. This ‘heat mining’ utilizes the heat that is stored within the Earth’s rock crust and transforms it into usable energy. Research has already indicated that geothermal could become a major electricity supplier for the country, and the U.S. is already the world’s biggest producer.

If you’re not a research scientist, how might all this affect you? Well, energy considerations might inform your investment strategies. As we look inward for energy supplies, rather than overseas, oil and gas royalty investments look like a promising option for growth. Plus, if you make royalty investments in the land that produces such supplies, it may also pay off if geothermal energy systems are developed. The technologies used to mine heat are similar in many ways to the systems used for extracting oil and gas, and the hot rocks that produce this heat are available in most parts of the U.S.

Through a combination of strategies, some immediate, some long-term, we ought to be able to lessen our reliance upon foreign sources for our energy.

The economy has weakened values, however, your portfolio can weather wall street thru Royalty Investments , particularly in the form of Oil and Gas Royalty investments
