Blogging Philosophy

Chris Lawrence has a post on blogging frequency and the like. This explains a lot of my recent rollback in posting. I have other commitments over the next couple of months and blogging has started to feel like a chore. I have noticed a steep dropoff in people that are hitting the main page since I didn’t resume my normal blogging after Memorial Day. Apparently my traffic levels were tied heavily...

Website

I’ve been having some trouble with the sidebar on the right spilling over into the center column for the past few days and I believe it is fixed. If you notice any problems, leave me a note in the comments to this post, please. Thanks.

Blogging Burnout – Likely To Last A While

The past day or so I’ve just been reading the news and following what other people have to say and have been enjoying it. It’s likely to last a while unless my situation changes – overwhelmed with life in meatspace and in a good way – or I get over being burned out. I’m just throttling back a bit. I lengthened the number of posts that show up on the main page so there will be more reading...

Out Of The Office

Been away from the computer all weekend. Wouldn’t have posted at all except for the post-dating in WP. The posts are hidden until the time arrives. Hope everybody had a good Memorial Day. It’s the longest I’ve gone without posting in months. Felt good. See you in a day or so.

Early Adopters

This is a big story around the blogosphere of late — see Spoons, Glenn and Roger — and I thought I’d add my two cents. As far back as 1998 I had abandoned television altogether and was getting my news exclusively from the Internet. I was a CNN junkie starting in college in the late 1980s — I loved their use of Reagan’s famous words “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this...

Light Blogging

I’m a bit overwhelmed with work these days, to put it mildly, and blogging will probably not be regular. I don’t know. I might blog a little just for a break but I expect to have to work straight through the weekend. If I stick to this and you notice comments closing on posts while they’re still on the main page, it’s because they are more than seven days old. We’ll see...

Around The Blogosphere

Still one thing more, fellow-citizens–a wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities. May that Infinite...

Carnival Of The Capitalists For 01/19/2004 Is Up!!

The Carnival of the Capitalists is up over at Unpersons. The primary entry is here. Next week’s carnival will be hosted by Winds Of Change. Send submissions, as always, to capitalists -at- elhide.com. The host this week doesn’t agree with the optimism espoused in the article I submitted regarding the success of the euro. Some problems aside — such as needed integration of the economies...

New Find

While checking out the cynic’s blog I discovered a new read: Diotima. It’s run by a couple of young women — am I really old enough for that term? — from the University of Chicago and has some interesting characters before the name, but I don’t know the encoding for them. Anyway, they talk about feminism and take shots at the feminist left, though they don’t seem...

Around The Blogosphere

To make this more exciting, imagine The Temptations singing Get Ready: * John Hawkins explains why he will support George W. Bush in 2004. He also has a collection of quotes by Wesley Clark. They’re not flattering. * Darmon Thornton has a post on why President Bush hasn’t “taken an easy Presidential term and screwed it up”. Some people actually think this. Really. * Michael...
