What other blogs do you read?
I’m curious, and also hungry for new blogs to add to my blogroll.
The question in the subject line of the post is it. Do you want more original comment? Do you want more links? Do you want something else?
Please, discuss and suggest away.
A well-written post by Jim Belshaw that he posted to his blog Personal Reflections yesterday really made me think. There, he considered a post of his written in 2007. He remembered where he was and what he was doing at the time; he recognized that the sad situation he had described then had not changed in any of its particulars, sadly; he noted that changing HTML standards and link rot required a revision.
WordPress lets me know, whenever I have successfully uploaded a post, how many I have made in total. Lately it has been hovering around 16 thousand or so, stretching back to the very first posts I made back in 2002 on my LiveJournal. How much of what I wrote has lasted in anything like as good a form as Belshaw’s post? What have these posts led to, if anything? What might they yet lead to? Or, what can they not become, not now and perhaps not ever?
I am wondering, thinking. I admit to being afraid as to what I might conclude.
Unfortunately, due to technical issues–a laptop that was sent back to the manufacturer for repairs, a desktop that is no longer working, a tablet that is a bit wonky–the frequency and nature of my posts here may be limited. I’ll try to keep things up, but I can’t make any promises.
For technical reasons, posting to my WordPress account is likely to be rather easier than posting to my Livejournal. A Bit More Detail’s address there is
In the meantime, if you have any suggestions as to future content at A Bit More Detail, please leave them in the comments field. Thanks!
