Okay guys, I didn’t know that this many people were into our podcast show, but the amount of email I got asking why it wasn’t in there proved otherwise. Here is the skinny: Gear Live runs on Expression Engine - the CMS software that I feel is the best available on the market. That being said, there is some sort of odd problem with iTunes 4.9 reading our EE generated RSS feed. The feed works perfectly fine, and every other RSS aggregator/podcast software that I have tried today recognizes it perfectly. The people over at pMachine are looking into it, and hopefully soon you will see the Gear Live Podcast listed in the directory.

SCOTTeVEST T-ShirtSo a few days ago we lamented

celebrated our existence, and in doing so we stated that we were going to be giving away some cool stuff over the month. The first prize we had up for grabs was the SCOTTeVEST Tec T-Shirt. Well, frequent Gear Live tipster FalcoBoy7 walked away with this one. It’s in the mail, bro. The next giveaway should be starting later today.

Playfeed columnist Jake Metcalf made an appearance on The Chris Pirillo Show last week, talking about games and technology with Chris and his callers. If you haven’t caught the show, I definitely recommend you checking it out. Jake did a great job helping out, as well as defending the Nintendo Gamecube. In fact, add the show to your podcasting client. I may get the opportunity to be on the show myself sometime in the near future, as the last time I was invited, I was on my way to new York City.

So, turning one year and all has made us that much wiser, and that much stronger - but of course, that is a lie. In order to bring better coverage to the masses, Gear Live is looking for a couple of bloggers who may be interested in joining our editorial team. If you have a passion for technology and writing using correct English spelling and grammar, we want to hear from you. Simply express your interest, along with a couple of writing samples, to me a line at andru [at] gearlive.com.

DescriptionThat’s right ladies and germs - Gear Live has now been ruining the minds of people everywhere for one full year. Looking back, it has gone by amazingly fast and has grown in readership just as quickly. Here are a few fun facts:

  • Our first article article was an interview with Scott Jordan, CEO and Founder of SCOTTeVEST.
  • Gear Live started as a hobby site that I did in my spare time, and over the last year, morphed into my full-time job.
  • We had 5653 unique visitors in our first month. Last month, we had over 350,000.
  • There was a time when the message boards received more traffic than the blog.
  • We started the site on MovableType, and switch to Expression Engine after about six months due to its immense flexibility.
  • We have posted 1176 articles, received 4582 comments and 92 trackbacks, and have gotten 1372 members in the last year.
  • If you weren’t around back then, here is a peek at what Gear Live used to look like.
  • A couple of months ago, Playfeed was born.

These are some of our most popular articles:

What about gifts? Glad you asked. To celebrate, we have a bunch of stuff we will be giving away - starting with a SCOTTeVEST TEC T-Shirt, which isn’t even available to the public yet. To win, simply tell us what your favorite Gear Live article has been from the past year in our comments section. Remember, as far as the U.S. goes, you have to be in it to win it - and a winner will be selected randomly.

TechnoratiSo, we have been pondering either adding a link to each entry which would lead to the Technorati cosmos for that post, or adding a Technorati cosmos section within the permalinks themselves. Today we decided to go with the link on each entry, which we have to endearingly named the TechnoratiBack. Of course, some of our favorite sites have just added similar functionality to their blogs as well. For now, two things are certain - Technorati rocks, and trackbacks will remain while we test everything out.
