of course, I'm just feeling a bit of whoo-hoo pride because the columnist is using my template design. :)

oh, and via Blogger.

The fine people at national review jumping on the bandwagon as well. I just love that Jonah Goldberg...

national review? ::grimaces::

I wonder if this will help the push for Blogger Pro.

I wonder if my kid sis will read this in mom's copy of Time and start a weblog.

And yet another failure to distinguish between online journals and weblogs.
posted by gsh at 1:22 PM on February 4, 2002

so how do you distinguish between the two?

yes, I think he (article author) focuses a skosh too much on the soap-opera potential of the form, but I really do wonder where that boundary is. is it a certain ratio of linked goodness to personal editorializing to recording of daily life?

PC magazine (feb 26) has a column about weblogs....we just got it in the mail, don't know if it hit newsstands yet......mostly talking about the diary form tho.

I am the last living sentient being on the planet without one-at least that is what it is starting to feel like. I don't even have a web page. I have the technology,(aka genius teenage son), just never got around to it.

I've found the last living sentient being on the planet without a web page!

Now, hand me the tranquilizer gun...carefully, carefully! That's got her!

"congratulations! bunnyfire.com is available"

courtesy of the fine folks @ network solutions.

y'know, once you get outside of the cozy world of the 'bloggers, there are lots and lots of people who don't have web sites.

not that I claim to understand 'em myself....

quietly backing away....

actually, almost none of my "meatspace" friends have web sites, nor weblogs, and that sucks. I hate the phone, I'm a terrible correspondent (both snail- and e-mail), but I keep a pretty good weblog/journal. (a legacy of damn near 20 years of keeping various diaries.) and I love reading other people's weblogs, so why not my own friends?

but no.

(which is why I'm kinda hoping that the sis will read that article.)

Ken Layne's response (scroll down a touch):

That fruit pie from Time Magazine thinks a personal Web site should revolve around "whatever ramblings come to mind ... "

Sure thing, Pablo! ...

And check back soon for new updates! The prom's coming up, I'm wondering about getting my ass pierced, and I've conjured some sort of blood-sucking devil monster out of the pile of chicken heads in the living room! Love ya lots, jackass! Stay cool!"

Actually, Bunnyfire, you do have a weblog.

It's called MetaFilter : )
