sapphoq on board
I have far too many e-mail addys and I have been accused of having too many blogs. Each blog has its' own purpose. Two of them are being maintained until the powers that be kick me out-- Yahell and El Jay have both been noted to have difficulties with censoring talent and allowing crud in the form of baby rapers to stay on. I have a blog now at Insane Journal-- a warm friendly little place that has pledged not to remove any content unless legally forced to. This blog here is the second team blog experience for me; and my fifth or sixth blogspot blog.
Blogspot is pretty much WYSIWYG; that is to say it is a push-button operation. In defense of Blogspot, I will note that armed with some code it is possible to get a more individualized look.
Both of the team blogs I belong to are on Blogspot. The set-up for team blogging is particularly appealing. The head blogger can set the layout, get new posts and comments mailed to their e-mail box, invite or ban authors, and do any co-ordination in general that might be required.
One of the greatest things about blogging is that [through meeting Jer over at Yahell], I got involved in PSP and IncrediMail e-stationary making. Making stats, tags, and icons has been a personal highlight of my life for the past year. Two months after making my first background, my work was in an art show [non-juried] in Pennsylvania. Participation in a computer art group has been largely responsible for the return of my motivation to achieve.
For any blogger with no experience with computer art and photo manipulation, I highly recommend it. It adds an extra dimension to blogging and the personal satisfaction therein.
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.
Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
- Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
- Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
- Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
- Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
- Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
- Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
- Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
- Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)
