We haven’t been here in since forever because we never really thought about blogging.  Even after we heard the blogging book read by the author, it didn’t quite sink in, and we didn’t think about blogging.  We wish that we could say that we have been incredibly productive in the meanwhile but we haven’t even been in the meanwhile which would at least have afforded us some company.  Then we remember.  We remember we started a blog and we remember what we called it and we remember the password and it turns out to have been a bloody year gone by since we did that and why would it not since that was when i lost my job.  Losing your job is just bizarre.  There is no other word for it.  It is something we all have to go through.

What is a “blog”?

“Blog” is an abbreviated version of “weblog,” which is a term used to describe web sites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information. A blog features diary-type commentary and links to articles on other Web sites, usually presented as a list of entries in reverse chronological order. Blogs range from the personal to the political, and can focus on one narrow subject or a whole range of subjects.

Many blogs focus on a particular topic, such as web design, home staging, sports, or mobile technology. Some are more eclectic, presenting links to all types of other sites. And others are more like personal journals, presenting the author’s daily life and thoughts.
And then I saw the movie with Amy who was perfect as usual.  She wins.  The movie was way better than the book.  And so then it evolves into something so sporadic as the contribution,.  T original thought is still intact afterall.

  • A main content area with articles listed chronologically, newest on top. Often, the articles are organized into categories.
  • An archive of older articles.
  • A way for people to leave comments about the articles.
  • A list of links to other related sites, sometimes called a “blogroll”.
  • One or more “feeds” like RSS, Atom or RDF files.

but I am not writing a blog, I’m just writing without ink.  And it is different.  It is different because we can go so fast.  And we keep forgetting that we are writing with the editorial we.  But we will get used to it.  And looking ahead.  Looking ahead is crucial.  And looking back is the most fun we have without laughing and sometimes we laugh too! and at things that were not funny at the time.

Now we have basically been starving.  Which is really no fun but have been getting used to it since it has been going on now for over a year.  There is a great deal to be said for surviving on only $20 a month.  It means my cash outflow has been $260 for a year.  I would make someone who is very cheap a great wife.

Content is the raison d’être for any web site. Retail sites feature a catalog of products. University sites contain information about their campuses, curriculum, and faculty. News sites show the latest news stories. For a personal blog, you might have a bunch of observations, or reviews. Without some sort of updated content, there is little reason to visit a web site more than once.
