This Thing IS On, If Only I’d Remember It

I am not one for resolutions on account of a mere calendar change, but that demarcation has had me fretting about my neglect of blogging. Nor am I that free to start up again in a big way, with other … Continue reading

Meta

As you can see, I have done a great job blogging regularly, even slacking on birthdays. I’m currently torn over the idea of all things in one place and only in one place, versus the attempt to have all things … Continue reading

Inported

I am going to allow my solojay.com domain to expire, and have imported the entire content here. That may result in some older posts looking a bit weird or having odd references, if they reference the old site they wer … Continue reading

Guess I Ought to…

Attempt to get through some of my blogging backlog! Trouble is, for every post I make, I tend to bookmark 2-3 links under “blog this,” and some of them demand substantive writing, nor does that count posts that don’t involve … Continue reading

Drumwaster’s Rants

Another blog I remember fondly is Drumwaster’s Rants, which somewhere along the line – not all that long ago – turned into a domain parking page. I never did learn Drumwaster’s real name, but he was part of the overlapping … Continue reading

It’s Pretty Sad…

When I have so much to blog that I end up stopping!

Happy Birthday

To Ed Morrissey, a fellow blogger from the class of 2003, originally of Captain’s Quarters and more recently Hot Air.

Writing

Obviously I like to write, or I wouldn’t be here and as voluminous as I often become. Blogging, though, it’s more like journaling, journalism, letters, idle commentary, that sort of thing. (Well, I suppose there might be bloggers who don’t … Continue reading

Feels Like

Too many birthdays! If I don’t post enough other stuff routinely, anyway. Guess I’ll have to get cracking…

Focus

While this and some others in the collection are new blogs, even if ultimately old content will be ported here to consolidate my writing under one roof, some are old blogs, and it is no secret I’d neglected them for … Continue reading

MedicMom

A big one in the list of bloggers I miss is MedicMom, AKA Sonia, from Alabama. Not sure I should even say that much about her here, given her concerns that led her to abandon her blog. Which is apparently … Continue reading

Ian Hamet

Again on the topic of old blogs, I also miss Ian Hamet. His ianhamet.com, which featured a blog named Banana Oil in my early days of blogging, seems to belong to someone else. He had a temporary blog, Upbeat Cynicism, … Continue reading

Gut Rumbles

I guess there will be a lot of these memorial blog posts, depending how quickly I go through the blogroll at AV. And this is sort of active, still… there, anyway, it’s just that Acidman died. If you never visited … Continue reading

Well then…

Not sure what I will be doing with this site. I haven’t been tweeting much, and there are hoops to jump through to get Twitter to return to posting digests here. That would continue to have the benefit of giving … Continue reading

Anger

Partly to remind myself, I had meant to write a post about anger, which is a challenge because it can expect to be long and personal, centering around a realization I had recently. Of course, also have in mind a … Continue reading

Old Reposts

Just an administrative note to report that I removed child categories from under “Old Reposts” to avoid confusion.  New crossposts for Blogblivion were classed as reposts because Blogblivion was a child to Old Reposts.

Absinthe & Cookies

I’m going through the old blogroll at AV, grabbing stuff to link elsewhere and purging what no longer exists. This could take a while. This also provides fodder for one of the things I’d decided Blogblivion would have as a … Continue reading

Crossposts

I am ceasing to use “crossposts” as a category, since it seems silly when most posts are such. Using the category of the name of where they are crossposted should suffice, and if it’s a repost rather than a crosspost, … Continue reading

Links

I need to add a ton more blogroll types of links when I get a chance. I want it to be expansive, as had been my custom in the past. I haven’t generally used RSS readers over the years, and … Continue reading

Happy 8th Blogiversary!

To Venemous Kate, who started out at almost the same time I did. A lot of us did, from mid-2002 through mid-2003 or so. Mine was February 25th. When Kate exploded onto the scene, I assumed she’d been long established, … Continue reading

The Great Flood

Obviously I have to make time for it, but now that I have started posting, there’s a flood of what I want to write, to the point where I find myself saying “which do I write first?” out of a … Continue reading

Geek Practitioners

This is another in the series of posts explained/introduced here, on subsidiary blogs.  This is one of my more troubled ones. Geek Practitioners spent a long time as the name for a business I was starting as a sole proprietorship … Continue reading

Carnival of the Capitalists

This could get long.  It’s another in the series of posts explained/introduced here, on subsidiary blogs. Carnival of the Capitalists was one of the first blog carnivals, following Carnival of the Vanities, but instead of being general, was dedicated to … Continue reading

Birthdays

For a long time I published birthday posts, just a quick “happy birthday… to so and so” with maybe an age or a link thrown in, if known or relevant.  I know it had at least one big fan and … Continue reading

Bizosphere

Here’s another post about an associated blog, the concept of these having been explained in the first one. Bizosphere started out as a great idea for a domain name, a takeoff on blogosphere, but of course with an orientation on … Continue reading

Reality Bucket

I think I will post about each of the subsidiary blogs associated with this place, at least as they stand for now, as they have been or are intended to be.  Speaking of confessions, I could post everything in one … Continue reading

Confession

The reposts from my “original blog” will probably all be from my second blog, with the oldest of them being reposts from the original to the second.  However, I didn’t port over everything, so there may be content missed.  Probably … Continue reading

This is Going to Be Interesting

As promised, I just started the presumably slow process of reposting content from earlier blogs, starting with my first and third posts from my first blog. The second of those touched on one of my pet topics, the need to … Continue reading

New Blogs

While this place has been rather fallow, between my not tweeting and the feed from Twitter failing to work properly for a while, I’ve been working on new blogs. Not sure what will happen to this, which never had much … Continue reading

Birthdays

I’ve been missing birthdays because I don’t post them anymore at Blogblivion.  I need to post them somewhere, but unless I put them on a new blog, or do convert my old pMachine blog to WordPress, it’s easiest and fits … Continue reading
