Post-thoughts on Blog Event

Posted by kscott on April 2, 2007

Ric it ended up going in for moderation, but here is your original blog. Thanks!

So here’s a summary of the three bloggers who spoke to us last week.

David Littlejohn, the Columbia grad, runs the blog http://advertisingforpeanuts.blogspot.com/ He talks  about advertising that he finds interesting. Which I don’t. Barbara Iverson runs the http://currentbuzz.org/ site. She talks about the media and current information technology and how it is changing current (and rapidly transforming) information business models. Lots and lots of other links. And then you can link to popurls.com and there are hundreds and thousands of others that you can waste your entire day flicking around.

Ben Tanzer (http://bentanzer.blogspot.com/) is a writer with a web-site/blog that probably applies closest to what we’ve been looking at. As fiction writer’s anyway. And, in a little example of the concept of infinity as viewed through two opposed mirrors, Mr. Tanzer talks about the panel at Columbia and about the sites that I’m refering to here, so you could, enter into an endess loop were you read it here and click on his link and follow that to the other sites and then back here and so on and so on… Maybe that’s what he means when he says that this blog will change your life.

From the above, very random examples, we can infer, quite inaccurately in a statistical sense, that blogspot is the place to go to set up your own new blog. Have at it.

    The blog looks sharp. Nice colors for the thing, feels homey and relaxed. I think antibiotic is one word though. I may be wrong. I went to post a comment on there about ‘looking forward to the eats’ etc, but it required that I register and crap for Google. I have enough shit I can’t remember passwords and log-in names for so I didn’t. Looks sharp tho, Ric. Nice goin’.

    What happened to all my comments about the blogging day?

    I agree with Joe. The colors look great. My question: Is this blog going to be used primarily for Sheffields? Are you going to incorporate some personal aspects (your writing, your ranting, your witticisms) as well?

    On a side note, I am coming to class tomorrow. Can anyone fill me in on what I missed last week?

    Oh, by the way, I finished two informational interviews (one with John McNally, the other with Scott Miles) about the production and marketing of short-story anthologies. I’m looking for a place to publish the results–I’m thinking possibly Fictionary… but I don’t really know how that works. Anyone have any ideas?

    I found this interesting article, on an interesting website:

    Blogger’s Code of Conduct

    Good read for anyone who’s unsure about what they can or cannot say on their blog. As for me, I’ll write anything I damn well please.
