Yes, I am still here. I have plenty of good excuses for not blogging lately, but not many good reasons.
- 3 trips in 2 weeks, including one to Germany
- Near obsessive-compulsive You-tube and election coverage watching in what was left of my spare time
- Actual time spent reading what others are writing
Monty Python's "Bring out your dead" scene from The Holy Grail.
Thinking about launching your own blog? Here's some friendly advice:
Don't. And if you've already got one, pull the plug.
Writing a weblog today isn't the bright idea it was four
years ago. The blogosphere, once a freshwater oasis of folksy self-expression
and clever thought, has been flooded by a tsunami of paid bilge.
It made me think of Monty Python...."I'm not dead yet." There's a lot to agree with in this essay, and with some of the commentary
out there. As a lover of compromise, I like to think that perhaps this simply raises the bar on bloggers, myself included.
