You have got me hooked.
« on: March 18, 2008, 06:22:48 AM »
Okay, I have a blog.  I tentatively submit it to people other than me.  I'm a little embarrassed, because I started the blog for my own use--to work out some ideas, to get myself writing in different contexts, and because it's kind of fun. As a result, it's pretentious, longwinded and self-indulgent, but there you go.  I should also point out that it's all bnr's fault.  You gyus have some great blogs.

I guess it's a cultural politics blog.  It's at http://blindmanwithapistol.blogspot.com

It was either that or a Tomas Plekanec fansite.

Groovy! Wilkommen, bienvenue, welcome! Im blogosphere, au blogosphere, to blogosphere!   :mrgreen:

Good going, Catchfire. I shall go back later to read your earlier stuff.

I've bookmarked, but for us lazy people, could you go to your BnR profile and fill in the URL there so that we get the little www button to click?

Catchfire, I was rather taken by the way you work out some ideas, got yourself writing in different contexts, and the way you have fun is impressive. If it is pretentious, longwinded and self-indulgent, that part has managed to slip past me.  :wink:

That's what blogs are.  Just relax and go with it.

Thanks croghan, skdadl and Suzette.  You're all far too kind.  I'm new to this, but it's certainly addictive, even when no one was reading.  Woo!

Oh, look! There's the little button.   :mrgreen:

At some point, Catchfire, you should apply to join ProgBlogs. Ignore the rude things we sometimes say about them; PB is very useful. It's hard for us little guys in Canada to build up the networks without something like the aggregators.

Oh! And what am I thinking? Have you talked to Debra about joining Blogging Change?
