I truly hate posts about posting, and blogging, and such. So, with that disclaimer, let me tell you about posting and blogging and such. Walruses and things will be covered tomorrow.
Of late, I keep finding what I term, instant posts, which I think will interest you...and it IS all about interesting you (at least that is the premise...which we bullshit bloggers like to spin). It has NOTHING to do with numbers of followers or comments...NOTHING.
With an instant or quickie post, there isn't much to say about it, as it is self-explanatory. Which of course, puts one (the poster) off the hook for ideas. Not that we don't all have ideas, or in some cases...me being the exception...bullshit ideas, but ideas that are worth, er, posting. This is yet another such post. I have another post that I keep putting off for the quickie type. The other one is, well...wordy. So wordy that several days after starting it, I'm still not quite finished...but then that is the fault of the instant posts, ahem.
Apropos to finding things to post, or thinking of things to post, which is what blogging is about, is the whole genre of blogging. I've been at it for five years, but it's been around much longer than I imagined...not MY blog...blogging (so it's a convoluted sentence...I don't have time to re-write it...I have another post to finish.) Jeez.
Back to the quickie. I got this off boingboing.net.
Say Everything, Scott Rosenberg's history of blogging...with a video. I found it interesting. I hope you do too.
Oh...and no, I was not the first blogger...nor was I present at the signing of the treaty ending the war in the Pacific in 1945...contrary to the lies Punch over at A Theatre of the Absurd is circulating (if you want to go over there ((I don't know why you would want to, but if you do, go find him over there on the right...I don't have time to do the link thing)).)
