EmpressCallipygos's link to her blog post about losing a 5 lb. container of sugar in her apartment highlighted that my feed reader is short on personal blogs, as most of the personal bloggers I followed have quit. If you are still blogging somewhat regularly (for any definition of regularly that you like), and don't mind other Mefites reading your blog, please share the URL. I will add all to my feed reader. This will also help me avoid Facebook, which is something I am trying to do.
Which (Currently active) Metefilter member has the most popular blog (judged by hit-count)? How about a non-blog site? Who is the most (web-influental) Mefi-member?
It's entirely possible that everyone already knows, but for fans of one of our funnier commenters, you'll be happy to see that Stan Chin's blog is finally live, and is a welcome addition to the blogosphere, despite what some might think.
Lileks to have pay option. It's returning to its full-bandwidth glory and: "I’m going to try something new here. The site, as it was, will still be free. But instead of putting up new stuff willy-nilly, I’m going to create a members section. Every Monday, a new peculiarity from the Institute’s gargantuan archives. Pictures, money, ads, early 60s British men’s magazine pinups, matchbooks, and many other peculiarities. A year’s subscription: $25." Well, count me in.
