Two Years Blogging

Written By: Gary on December 12, 2005 8 Comments

So it’s been two years that I’ve been blogging!!! I’m still short three posts from 1,000 but maybe I’ll have something more introspective to post in a few days. I just couldn’t let the day go without a post. Besides, I have a few questions for you…

Blogging facts from Gary Said…

  • This is really my third permutation of my web site title and my fourth URL, but it’s the only dedicated one so I’m thinking I’ll be sticking to it for good (I hope). I got the distinct address to separate it from (more professional?) non-blogging activities. I’ll probably only switch if I got something better, like gary.com.
  • I get block about 500 comment/trackbacks spam hits a day which is about 15,000 hits a month! Thank you MT-Blacklist and SpamLookUp! Blogging would be no fun without both of these tools (details on these tools below).
  • I’m still averaging about 3 posts every two days. And a few memes that I never got to finishing each week.

    My questions to you:

  • How often do you read my blog?
  • Why don’t you comment more?

  • Where are you from?
  • Have you seen The Daily Meme, my index of memes? (These aren’t my memes, just my index. Just a little self/cross-promotion…)

    Geeky spam details (optional reading): This is about MT-Blacklist and SpamLookUp which are spam prevention tools for Movable Type 3.2. MTB kills most spam (the most obvious spam) and marks some for moderation. SLU checks out what MTB passes in and either posts it, labels it as stuff you should look at (moderation: waiting for approval to post or delete) or as junk (waiting for approval, deletion or automatic deletion in 60 days). This means spam (almost) never gets posted and a small percentage of the real stuff gets delayed but makes me confident real stuff doesn’t get deleted.

      1) I read as often as you post, because I subscribe to your web feed.

      2) I comment on other blogs when I have time, but since I track over 100 blogs now, I’d never have time to write in my own if I was devoting all my time to commenting on others.

      3) Washington State.

      4) If I were to do a meme everyday, my blog would suddenly have substance, and I think we can all agree that’s not something that belongs on my blog! :-)

      I also read as you post with a news feed reader.

      I don’t comment more cause I’m lazy and have nothing interesting to say :)

      I’m from Sydney, Australia

      I’ve seen *a* catalogue, but perhaps not yours.. I suppose I should have a look :)

      1) I read a few times a week, usually everyday.

      2) What kind of comments would you like, I’m sure I could speak up more!

      3) I live in the Garden State of cabbage patch fruits and vegetables.

      4) I still uncertain about what memes are about.

      I love the design and content of your blog

      1. I subscribe, so I read ’em all. Well, since I started subscribing anyway.

      2. I comment every so often. Not all the time.

      3. The far west suburbs of Chicago

      4. That many memes scares me.

      1) I usually visit daily, but even if I miss a couple of days I scroll back to read the old posts. I do that with all the blogs I read.

      2) Because I’m such a terrible commenter! I really should comment more, I know it’s fun to receive comments.

      3) Southern Finland.

      4) I have and I just visited it again. :)

      1)I read whenever I see you’ve updated from my blogroll, so probably almost every day.

      2)Because I try and only comment when I have something useful to add, not just for the sake of leaving a comment.

      3)Sacramento, California

      4)I have visited. I think its pretty cool.

      * How often do you read my blog?

      2-4 times a week

      * Why don’t you comment more?


      * Where are you from?

      Residing in Boston

      * Have you seen The Daily Meme, my index of memes? (These aren’t my memes, just my index. Just a little self/cross-promotion…)

      Just read the memes as you post them.

      -I subscribe to your blog through bloglines and usually read it a few times a week.

      -I would comment more but at times my comments end up being as long as a post :) But I do like popping in here and reading what’s on your mind & what you’ve been up to.

      -I live right down the street from The Henry Ford/Greenfield Village.

      -The Daily Meme? Sorry, I’m just a retard when it comes to that. I don’t know what it is :)
