New Site, Blog Moved

Tags:

A couple big changes being launched today. The obvious one being that the blog is now located at www.practicalpickup.com.

You’ll notice a lot of major changes with the new site. Here’s a rundown of them:

1. I’m disassociating with the terms “Pick Up Artist,” “PUA” and the name “Entropy.” For any of you who have followed the blog the last year, you’ll know that it just doesn’t make sense for me anymore. I am continuing to write dating advice, develop products, coach and give seminars. But I don’t subscribe to that moniker or the community. There’s just too much that’s unhealthy about it that I don’t want to be associated with anymore. For more information, you can check out the article My Life as a Pick up Artist on the new site. It’s not that I “hate” the community or that it’s wrong or anything. I’ve just moved on.

2. You’ll notice some “newbie” type posts on the new site. For those familiar with PUA, a lot of these posts will seem remedial (i.e., How to Start a Conversation). The new site and brand is directed towards a much more mainstream audience. So if you think it’s too simple, then just don’t read it. There’s still plenty of in-depth articles being written and posted.

3. Of the 400 or so posts on EntropyPUA, only about 75 made the cut. Many of them were expanded, consolidated and revised and are in new forms on the new site. If you’ve enjoyed the direction this blog has taken in the last 6-8 months, then you’ll like all of the new content coming a lot.

4. There are about 25 new articles, half of which are some of the “newbie” posts listed above. Regular updates will return 2-3 times a week. Articles on the new site will be more content-based, more in-depth and more widely applicable. Most references to my daily life or personal life will probably stop.

5. You may see some broken links to new articles here and there. Those are articles that are scheduled to be posted in the next week or two but haven’t been finished yet.

6. Most of the comments from this site were carried over and consolidated, so you may see some posts where there are comments from 2008 even though the post is listed as recent.

7. As always, I’ll be active in the comments and I’ll be adding some forums in the near future. I’ll be going by my real name from now on.

8. I now have a few coaches who are working for me. They are not full-time coaches, but guys I’ve worked with before many times and at this point have a decent amount of experience that I trust them to do an excellent job.

9. EntropyPUA.com has already been gutted for all its best content posts. The 150 best posts from the last three years or are either on the new site, part of products or bonuses to products. This site will no longer be updated. The front domain page will be remade listing my websites in general. As far as I’m considered, “Entropy” and “EntropyPUA.com” are more or less dead.

Damn son, so the day came. Awesome. Good for you.

Speaking of nick names – people actually call me “Swede” or “the Swede” in the, so-called, real life (outside of the community). I don’t mind because, well, it’s accurate. Do you cringe when people call you Entropy?

Hm, first impression of the new site is that you picked most of your articles titles to try and capture certain Google keyword search phrases, but yeah, I know that’s a pretty esoteric thing to notice.

Yeah, notice it too Kevin. Good luck with that :)

Here’s a pratical tip: redirect your feed so that people subscribing this blog get the updates from the new one without doing a thing.

Thanks for the tip.

And yeah, I’m hitting the google keywords hard.

Can you put up an archives or index session which is just a long list of all the articles, so it’s easy to browse and select the site’s entire contents at a glance? Divided by subject or just chornologically, doesn’t really matter.

Right now it seems there’s no easy way to get at all the articles. I thought they were all listed on the left and right margins, by category, but then I noticed from the Related Posts after some of them that there were other articles I’d like to read too. I have no idea how to get to those other articles either, except by randomly coming across them in a Related Posts section.

Lots of blogs make themselves hard to navigate for some reason. They should all just have an Archives list. Like on some there will be some post you remember and want to read again, but you can’t quite remember the name… and the only way to find it is to search through every post in order, one month at a time.
