Today is Device Geek Blog’s second birthday and to celebrate it, we want to thank every one for looking at the blog over the past two years. What originally started out as a class project in my junior year of college, turned into something much more. On our first birthday, we hit one thousand total views and for this birthday, we are almost at ten thousand total views. Either the blog has gotten much more popular in year two or the same person is viewing the blog over and over again. Regardless, thank you. In this post, we outline some very important updates to the blog.
On the left side of the page, you can now subscribe to the blog’s RSS feed. In iOS 8, this means that all new posts will be displayed in your “Share Links” tab of Safari. You can access our RSS feed on your smart watch, email and more. You still have the option to follow the blog via email or if you’re a WordPress user, on your account.
Project of the Week
Each week, our team will hand pick a very innovative and creative product on Indiegogo or Kickstarter that works as an accessory to the iPhone, iPad or iPod. It could be anything from a dock, a charge cable, a case or something else entirely. As long as it is built for iOS and it intrigues us, we will write about it. Also, the featured project will have a summary post with a video (when available) on the page titled “Project of the Week.” If you have an amazing project in mind or if you want extra free advertising for your project, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we may feature it in on the blog.
The blog has proudly been mostly ad-free for as long as we can. Nothing ruins a good blog post like an underwear advertisement or waiting ten seconds to access an article. WordPress may sometimes post advertisements on the site, but know that we are not responsible for them. Until we host elsewhere, though, WordPress may continue to display ads. We have been considering hosting the site on a different server and adding advertisements. If we go down this path, we promise to make sure the ads do not get in the way of reading our content. They would help the blog earn money, which means contests, DGB merchandise and more.
As of October 14th, the website www.idevicegeekblog.com will no longer work. We switched over to www.devicegeekblog.com earlier this year and this will be our domain name from now on. If you attempt to go to our old one after the license expires, you won’t be coming to our site.
