Can you believe wordpress still had "On Blogging" available? I couldn't. I only typed it in on a whim, since I wasn't sure I was going with wordpress for this blog. Also, I had a nice introductory paragraph going in my head this morning and I've since forgotten it. Along with the title for the page.
I'm a lousy person to have a blog called "On Blogging," as I don't consider myself a blogger. I get kind of strict on what I do and do not consider a blog–an online journal, sure, that's a blog. A subjective news site, those sites are probably blogs too. Except California (is it California) considers them journalists, based on the recent decision against Apple.
"On Blogging" is an attempt to be transparant about my other blogs. There's no room for personal reflection–outside the context of the review–at "The Stop Button," my film and comic book review site. It's a pretty site, using Karelia's Sandvox. My other site–all of three days old–is "The Stupid Page," which runs Blogger. "The Stupid Page" is for entertainment commentary. It's supposed to be the equivalent to shooting off an e-mail to a friend when one reads something (entertainment-related) unbelievable or funny. As such, I'm trying to get a friend of mine to post there too.
"On Blogging," I'm hoping, will be some insight into the whole process. I use Blogmad for "The Stop Button," so I know most people just write about their process in their blogs, but such discussion isn't right for "The Stop Button" and it's not right for "The Stupid Page" either. Actually, "The Stupid Page" used to be part of "The Stop Button," way back when "Button" was at the now-gone jablog. It's changed concepts over the… wow… years and now it's closer to the original then it ever was since (for a while, it was a place for me to rant about university woes, then it was similiar to what I've got in mind for "On Blogging").
I did have plans for my first post here, but, like I said, I've forgotten them.
Since making those plans, I did do a post over at "The Stupid Page" and, for the first time ever–in two and a half years of posting–end with a question mark to invite comments, which I think is less of a banner day and more a forecast of the apocalypse.
