More dating webloggers.

More dating webloggers. Online journallers, really: Stephanie polled her readers as to whether she should go out with Mike. They voted overwhelmingly in favor, and now she's traveled from Detroit to Columbus to meet him. Everyone's watching with bated breath. Well, every one of their readers, anyway ... but five thousand people voted in her poll.

The A-List Fan Club. I know you're sick of hearing about it, but I found this site too amusing to not mention. Does anyone know the story behind it?

Deconstructing

Deconstructing
Joe Clark (a fellow Torontonian, no less) has provided food for thought in his "Deconstructing 'You've Got Blog'" screed. While Joe scores some valid points, I think he misses the mark in a few major ways. In the process, he comes across as cynical, and a bit wounded, too. [more inside]

Should have used Blogger.

Should have used Blogger. Is Groksoup.com dead? (Or is it just resting? And why did it go down on a full moon Friday the 13th?) Seems quite a few bloggers just lost EVERYTHING in their Groksoup weblogs. Ouch.

Reading, 'Riting, 'Rithmetic

Reading, 'Riting, 'Rithmetic Jakob Nielsen says "to take the Internet to the next level, users must begin posting their own material ... the vast wasteland of Geocities confirms this. Giving users a home-page editing program does not turn them into good writers." Meg takes Nielsen to task: "his recommended approach is crazy ...Why bog kids down with HTML?" Blogs, of course, are her solution. But for some folks this simply doesn't add up. Saying kids shouldn't learn HTML because Blogger exists is like saying they shouldn't learn to add because calculators exist.

Blogger/Pyra is getting into hosting?

Blogger/Pyra is getting into hosting?

Blog*Spot.com is run by Pyra, it's obviously not done yet, but it looks like it'll be an easy-to-setup microhost for blogs, complete with templates.

On a semi-related note, is anyone using WrapZap as an ASP for forms on their blog? Seems like integrating that with Blogger would be a nice little bit of advanced functionality for Blogger Pro.

Weblogs get some more press

Weblogs get some more press... and it's positive this time!
posted by phooey on Jul 15, 2000 - 5 comments

Oh great another "weblogs are stupid and they all suck" article came out, but what I really want to know is: why does the other article running this week at ALA acknowledge that "99% of everything is crap," but the weblog article doesn't? Comparing the cruft at the bottom of weblogs with the 1% best of writers (Ginsberg and Kerouac) seems unfair and pointless. And where are the solutions? Tell everyone to stop? Tell them to write better? What's so hard about ignoring the sites you don't like instead (I do that with most advertising)?

Douglas Rushkoff:

Douglas Rushkoff: "The myth of the internet - and one I believed for a long time - is that most people really want to share the stories of their own lives." And I'd add to that: most of those people who DO want to share their own stories really don't know how to do it. And that includes me...

Dru Jay has a good article on voluntary micropayments,

Dru Jay has a good article on voluntary micropayments, and the theme is something the failed micropayments crowd never thought of: instead of forcing the charge before you see it, treat a site as shareware, and pay after you've enjoyed it. Thanks to two individuals, I'm $0.50 richer today. Are voluntary paypal donations the wave of the blogging future?

bla-bla.com and grrl.com (a new chickclick style portal from womensforum.com) are on the hunt for independent female sites to lump together and sell off to their advertisers. what have your experiences been with .commers? how do you feel about advertising on yr own site? what kind of money is actually earnt from being part of a portal (which seems to be their major selling point)? what resources are available to independent site owners? perhaps another branch of the metafilter community could be dedicated to informing people about what does happen when a site signs on to a portal business, and what the alternatives are.

The Great Blog-Off

The Great Blog-Off is coming- so far 8 bloggers will be madly competing for 24 hours to find the best links on the web on an as-yet-unknown topic. A lesson in futility or potentially dirty, self-absorbed fun? Discuss amongst yourselves.

Orangina is the new orange

Orangina is the new orange All right, I tried to blog this and keep finding dead ends. Can someone please point me to permanent bookmarks of conversations (i.e., monologues) on A-list blogs like powazek.com and n-list ones like psionic.nu declaring that "[colour] is the new orange"? ¶ (At the Toronto bloggeur f2f, we engaged in ironic discussion of the fact that our blogs are not on the A-list and never will be, though I argued that merely contributing to Metafilter gives us exposure among the A-list crowd  in effect, a social-climber/arriviste argument for which I do not apologize. Miss Emmajane wasn't present for the ironic part, however. I am familiar with the argument that one who blogs as a ploy for readership is a failure. I agree. But blogging and being the only reader is, frankly, onanistic. I speak as someone whose blog is linked to by a grand total of three others. I'm not sure there are ten people on earth who regularly read what I write. I'm OK with that, but I'd love to be more... popular! Discuss. But give me the orange link first.)

Cassie and Jason

Cassie and Jason have engaged me better than any soap opera, movie, journal, weblog, anything. Cassie's reports about her husband's near-fatal car accident and his creeping recovery are, well, moving. She writes with clarity and simplicity and selflessness. Her letters make my eyes tear, then I grin and can't hold it back. I flinch, wince, sigh, laugh. The hair on my neck bristles. I want to squeeze that lovely woman and carry that man around like a king.

Anybody have what used to be here (http://www.spoonfed.net/reflect/monkeys.html) in cache or anything?

Anybody have what used to be here (http://www.spoonfed.net/reflect/monkeys.html) in cache or anything? I ask because I am fascinated by the intense reactions that blogging evokes in some people, and so I really want to read what Mr. spoonfed.com had to say. Especially since he seems like a decent writer when he explains why he took the anti-blog piece down.

Love that Blogger redesign.

Love that Blogger redesign. Normally I wouldn't blog about this here, but they leave me little choice. (Other than jumping ship and kludging some scripts together). I want my free service that I pay nothing for and should be grateful just to have now!

On a serious note, I love Blogger, think it's great, and use it myself, but is it bad to become dependant on a third party tool? You've basically placed the life of your site at the whim of the tool provider. Granted, Ev, Meg, PB, [that fourth guy], Matt, and now Jack seem like pretty nice people to be at the whim of, but wouldn't it be better to do it 'on your own?'

Just thinking out loud, as soon as it's back up I'll go to my little traveled corner of the web and stay there.

A visual weblog

A visual weblog where a current event is encapsulated into artwork. It's updated everyday and you can mail the graphic and URLS to a friend. The cross contextualization of the links is interesting, because each story has multiple sources.

The Corporatization of Weblogs Has Begun, it is decreed

The Corporatization of Weblogs Has Begun, it is decreed The current Editor & Publisher introduces blogging to its newspaper-editor audience and points out two blogs actually written by newspaper columnists. I do indeed agree that Weblogging is a viable new medium of expression for dead-tree media, and agree even more strongly that special-interest journalistic blogs are in desperate need. (I'm planning one myself, and wouldn't it be great to read dueling blogs on the same topic from rival newspapers?) I just worry that the column will have an illocutionary effect, i.e., it will cause something to happen just by uttering words, rather like "I now pronounce you married." In this case the words I worry about are "The corporatization of Weblogs has begun." I can hear Rushkoff griping about the good old days already. And I'd gripe along with him.

Log spam, a new trend?

Log spam, a new trend? Within the last hour I received two requests from loggers to visit their web site. The first one sent a regular and kind e-mail message, actually addressed to me. No problem with that. But the second one seemed to be a mass mailing, correct me if I'm wrong. I hope this doesn't become a habit among loggers who claim they have 'trouble breaking into the 'blogger community'.

Glassdog:

Glassdog: "A Weblog is a links page masquerading as a home page. They rarely involve much creativity on the part of the Weblogger. (see: Memo) A Weblog owner simply hunts around for cool stuff other people took the time to do and then they link to it. ...And then there's MetaFilter..."
