All these blogs I started because I was trying out the various options available to bloggers back in 2004/05. Sam and I ran blogs in blogspot in 2004 before getting our own domain and host early in 2005. I tried WordPress.com late in 2005 as well as other free wordpress hosts just to find out what they were all about. I even started one in blogsome but that never got off the ground. I just spent an hour retrieving passwords to these accounts, wondering which emails I had used to sign up on them.
As it is what I do for a living (since 1997) I am torn between “oh isn’t that the cutest thing” and “why didn’t I think of that”. The PingMag post has been viewed over 2000 times and to date has 240 comments. The author of the post has graciously put high resolution versions of the photos on a flickr account. My personal favorite is Step 4, after having experienced the frustration innumerable times as both manager and developer.
I honestly don’t know what I should do with these other blogs, I can’t even begin to imagine the time I would need to maintain them all. How I wish I had the cephalopodic dexterity of wats0n, who can maintain five (5) blogs with nary a hiccup.
