The Capoeira Blog September Overview

Filed under: Blog

The Capoeira Blog has been around for 4 months now, and we’re nearing 5,000 page views. I’m pretty impressed with what I’ve accomplished so far, and I’m excited for what the future holds. For now, though, I wanted to do a sort of “overview” post of what The Capoeira Blog has to offer so far.  I’ll probably do one of these every couple of months, just to catch up on the good stuff.

This is mainly for the benefit of anyone new to the site or just browsing through, so I hope the veterans (of all 4 months!) can bear with me for a little bit. Maybe this will even help those of you who may have missed some of the updates and additions I’ve made over the past couple weeks, because I’m constantly changing and updating things here and there.

You may have missed some of the new pages over on the sidebar. Allow me to explain them.

Subscribe

If you never want to miss out on any of the latest and greatest from The Capoeira Blog, I’ve created a few different ways for you to subscribe.

  • RSS– Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is a way to publish frequently updated web content, such as a blog. RSS uses “feeds” which are documents that update with the most recent posts. These feeds can be automatically updated and read at any time by using an RSS reader (my reader of choice is Google Reader). Add The Capoeira Blog to your RSS reader and never miss a thing. You’ll notice that there are RSS subscription options at the end of each post and in the Meta section. Please don’t use these links, because it will mess with my stat tracking. Please use the option in the Subscribe section and page. Thank you.
  • E-mail – If you subscribe to The Capoeira Blog through our e-mail subscription, you’ll receive daily messages that collect the most recent updates from that day. This is an easy way to stay on top of things if you don’t want to bother with RSS.

Promote

I’ve created a variety of graphics that you can use on your own website or blog to spread the love. I’ve even made it easy for you. All you have to do is copy the text below your chosen graphic, and paste it into anything that can use HTML (forums, websites, blogs, social networking sites).

For example, copy/paste this text:

<a href=”https://thecapoeirablog.wordpress.com”><img src=”http://www.mikelandryonline.com/images/capoeirablogbanner.jpg” alt=”The Capoeira Blog” /></a>

And it will look like this:

It’s that easy!

Contact

Well this is pretty straight forward. If you want to contact me for any reason, I’ve provided some different ways to do so.

Capoeira For Beginners

I wrote a series of posts targeted at those who are just starting their capoeira journey. As time goes on, and I write more “beginner” type posts and articles, I’ll be collecting them on this page. Here’s the series, if you missed it.

Noteworthy Posts

I’ve written a number of posts in the few months this blog has been around. Here are some of the best.  Notice that I’ve gone back and added images to many of the older posts (it’s a trend I’ll continue with new posts from now on).  I think adding images to a post makes it more interesting and gives it a nice little flair.

Reader Interaction

My goal with The Capoeira Blog has always been to form a community. Yes, I’m writing articles and spotlighting certain things, but it’s all done in order to keep a conversation flowing. This blog would be nothing without the great readers who contribute, share their stories, and make the whole thing possible. If it weren’t for you guys, I’d just be talking to myself, and that wouldn’t be much fun.

So now I ask you, readers old and new, what are your feelings on how we’ve come along so far? What do you think has worked best? What can be improved? Do you have any ideas for articles? Do you have other capoeira resources that you’d like to share with us? Please, let me know whatever is on your mind.

Like I said, you guys are the reason that I keep this blog going. I hope to still be talking and sharing with all of you a year from now!

Until then, obrigado and muito axe!
