My 2 Cents: How It Is w/Me

I’m still trying to get my lets under me as I learn this new blogging system. I’m exasperated by some of the things I can no longer do easily. But impressed by new capabilities. At my SR office Wednesday, I hit my stride in the afternoon — and posted quickly. I hit my “zone” for mebbe 90 minutes Wednesday evening when I approached my “blogging at the speed of light” barrier. Today, however, I’m back to clunking along at home with my laptop. I still struggle with the mix out front. It doesn’t feel right on the strange new blog front page. I miss my blogrolls. I like the avatars but I’m not comfortable with the main comments thread yet. I see the potential of the new blog. But I have so much muscle reflex to un-learn that it’s frustrating. I thought this old dog was through learning new tricks. On the other hand, I’m glad so many of you have followed me over.

Combined page-views between the two blogs for the last two days have been near or over 11,000. Of course, that includes a lot of duplicate hits. PVs on the new HBO by itself Wednesday hit 7803. Which isn’t bad. Christmas is coming. I’ll be off for 2 weeks, beginning Saturday. If the vacation and new blogware doesn’t kill things here, it’ll be proof that we built something special here. Now, I wish I knew how to post Taryn’s drawing of me that usually goes with “My 2 Cents.” Alas — DFO.
