If you are a blogger, do you have a post that either exemplifies blogging at its best (or worst) and/or do you have a post that helps explain blogging?I have a special fondness for my post "Tattoos remind you of death." I think it's mostly that the article is the most bloggable thing I've ever run across.
I think the post of mine that's gotten the most attention is "How Kerry lost me." Did George Lakoff teach a "Language of Politics" class about it? I like the idea of a blog post becoming a text.
I'm fond of all the simulblogging (or TiVo-blogging) things I've tried to do — and will try to do again today. But I must teach a Civil Procedure class at 11. And I must get a tooth pulled at 2. I'll probably tooth-blog later today. Help! I've never had a tooth pulled and I'm terrified!
UPDATE: The link to Taylor's blog isn't working for me right now. I'm guessing he got some big links and things crashed over there. Here's some advice from me about blogging: Stay with Blogger! Do not scorn the BlogSpot! You never have to worry about too much traffic. You don't pay for it and things don't crash. You may have heard of various problems people have had with Blogger, like last spring, when there was once a day when you couldn't get your posts to appear, but there has not been a single problem since then. Think how many blogs they are managing! Why do you imagine that you'll be better off with some smaller scale outfit? Or do you just hate seeing "blogspot" in your URL? I say wear the "blogspot" with pride! Start with Blogger, stay with Blogger! Don't be a URL snob. Get a word you like in front of the "blogspot" and be happy to join the millions of well-served bloggers like me. And Duncan "Open Thread" Black.
