Rules for Pissing on Someone's Blog

If you're a blogger -- or human for that matter -- you know all too well that time and energy are limited. For every blog you can comment on, there are 10,000 more. For every Tweeter you follow there are a million waiting. Like one of those evil pictures within a picture that explains infinity, it just never ends. ...more

Hitting the Small Time

Definition of SMALL-TIME:  insignificant in performance, scope, or standing. - Merriam-Webster.comRecently I found myself pondering as to why some blogs are so small (I like the term personal), while others gain a much larger following.  The ones that hit the "Big Time" get a column after column, and row after row full of tiny photos in the "Followers" section.  They get comment after comment, with reply after reply to those comments.  They get featured on other websites.  S...more

Long and Disrupted Days

I try to make all deadlines, whether created by others or by myself. I sometimes fail. Don't we all at one time or another?I thought I would fail today's posting deadline, but it's only 10:40 pm on my watch and I got a post onto Claudsy's Blog before the midnight bells. I had time to spare on this one, but how long can I keep this up? That's the question.I've managed to get a post or two made each day during this "Relative" challenge. Other things, however, have suffered due to this added deadline event....more

What A Challenge

Why You Shouldn't Delete Your Blog Posts and Comments

I recently noticed something on self-hosted Wordpress blogs: unlike Blogger where the comment-leaver can delete their comment after posting, on self-hosted Wordpress blogs, the only person who can do the deleting is the owner of the blog. This fact to me speaks volumes about the division that exists in the online world about deleting -- who can delete (which is really about who owns the words) and should we delete in the case of blog posts or comments that we regret? ...more
