Everybody Must Get Blogged
Thursday, 2004 December 16 - 2:50 pm
I have become addicted not only to blogging, but to reading everyone else's blogs.

I am an avid blog reader. I will reload people's blog pages ten times a day to see if they've written anything new.

Blogging strikes me as a really efficient way to communicate, and a good way to keep up with people. I mean, I wouldn't send e-mails with all my stories and opinions to everyone I knew; that would be a quick way to end up in someone's spam filter. This way, everything is just here if people want to see it. And, I can write stuff without having to inject the obligatory e-mail overhead: "How are you doing? I haven't talked to you in a while. What's new?" If everyone had a blog, we could bypass all that meaningless back-and-forth, and just get straight to the information.

And I do enjoy the whole process of blogging. (It's no longer just something to fill time on the computer while I'm waiting for porn to download.) I like jotting down ideas during the day of things I want to blog about. I like being able to organize my thoughts and express them in a thought-out manner. And I like the fact that I might be saying something useful or interesting. (Maybe not in THIS entry, but you know... sometimes.)

For those of you who are reading but don't have a blog of your own, I encourage you to check out Blogger or LiveJournal, and start one up. Make it a soapbox, a diary, or whatever you want it to be. Just write! The world needs more content.

You should start a livejournal simply for the purposes of a Friends page. Then you will only have to reload one page in order to find out if anyone has written anything. That's where I read your entries via your feed!

I don't need LJ for that; I can use any RSS/Atom newsreader or aggregator. For Mac users, I recommend NewsFire; it's quite good.

Anyway, for some reason I still like to just open up the sites and look at them... it doesn't require much effort to open a group of bookmarks in tabs. (Note to all you Windows/IE users who don't know what tabbed browsing is: switch to FireFox, for crying out loud!)

By the way, a note to Javi: you were my 1000th page load since I started counting. You'll just have to imagine the cascade of balloons falling from the ceiling over here. (The DNC was not in charge of the balloons.)
