Change of Method

I have started using Blog (the program) and deleted my Blogger entries. I much prefer keeping the data myself, instead of relying on an outside source to keep it for me. It was interesting setting this up, not a walk in the park but a heck of a lot easier once I found the right bit in the help file. And I get to use my PHP templates, and titles too! Wonder of wonders, there is also a spelling checker. And there was much rejoicing!

All the HTML class assignments are marked, all the t-zero columns are formatted and uploaded, just waiting for teasers. Relief. I am finally up to date with everything. Synchronicity: one of the t-zero columns is about web logs. We have a new columnist who keeps not one, but two blogs going.

Fox 2 News put a quote on the screen containing the sentence: “Alot can happen in twelve days.” Alot, not “A lot,” but slinging the two together as one word. Where’s the spell checker? Where’s the copy editor?

Self-referential blogging links:

Daypop searches weblogs for news and current events.

Blogstickers provides bumper stickers for blogs.

BlogSnob publicizes personal blogs.

The Blogger Code is a Geek code for bloggers.

I have found a wonderful Blogsticker by Patty Bau:

(Trans: I came, I saw, I Blogged)

Experimenting with Blogsnob. No links are appearing. Ah, I haven’t been approved yet. And the approval committee is in India. Hi guys!
