  • Fifteen year blogiversary

    Fifteen years ago, I wrote my first post here. Now, my archives page says there are 2,565 posts. That doesn’t count the many obnoxious posts I decided didn’t represent well. There are probably more that could be deleted. Yup. Most of the posts here still make me happy. It’s common for me to have a […]

  • R.I.P. The Blog, 1997-2013

    R.I.P. The Blog, 1997-2013, by Jason Kottke. “Blogs are for 40-somethings with kids.” Guilty, as charged. Yet, like Jason, I plan to continue writing/posting online. I blame the death of blogging on its success. Web content has become so common that it’s virtually worthless. The continuous flow of the new is a stream. If you […]

  • Is Blogging Old Media?

    Is Blogging Old Media?

    Ouch! I’ve only been blogging since 2004. I guess I need to remember that I joined MySpace and Facebook in 2006, and Twitter and Tumblr in 2007. Let’s not forget identi.ca, Plurk, and FriendFeed around the same time. Yup, that was years after starting blogging and years ago. So, what’s the next big thing in […]

  • My Social Media New Year’s Resolutions

    With a new year nearly here, it’s time to resolve to behave better on Twitter, Facebook, my blog, and whatever other social media gets invented this coming year. Ask, don’t tell. I’ll try to remember that I don’t know everything and act accordingly. I might even learn something. Leave more comments. Bloggers put a lot […]

  • Starting a Blog — Naming It

    Yesterday, I started “Impolite Company” to write about political issues. This and the next few posts will document the decisions I made and the steps I took in creating Impolite Company. First on the list is the name: Impolite Company. I wasn’t looking for anonymity. I just needed another blog to segregate my political posts […]

  • Impolite Company Is Alive

    My political blog, Impolite Company, is open for business. There’s not much there yet, but that soon will change. It’s been a while since I started a new WordPress blog. There’s a big difference between starting a basic blog and one that has those features and capabilities I consider necessary. Domain names, styles, comments, and […]

  • Internet Content Plumbing Simplification

    Inspired by Rafe Needleman’s content overload, I graphed my current Internet content plumbing with an eye to simplifying and improving it.1 I have two blogs: blogan.net and Exerslog; their content goes to FriendFeed, as do the comments I write on blogan (they are filtered from the entire comments feed by a Yahoo pipe). I don’t […]
