One thing I can do for you is add your blog to my regular RSS feeds for
possible inclusion in Ubuntu Weekly News. I regularly scan a number of feeds
for Ubuntu related news, and blogs like yours have the potential to be
included in UWN's "In The Blogosphere."
I'll be reviewing your latest, and potentially including it in Ubuntu
Weekly News # 191. Issue # 191 will be published Sunday at this link:
