Before I begin posting in earnest again, I want to share a thought with you. In the spirit of the season, I’ve been thinking about granting amnesty for all those who have been coolered for some time. I mean everyone, including those who go back a ways. I don’t think there’s many in there. Mebbe a half dozen. I’ve forgotten the wrongs some of them did. They are easier to control on this new blogware. If they misbehave again, they’re out of here for good. What do you think? (Huckleberries, of course, would continue to block the one or two who have been banned rather than coolered.)
Question: Should I grant amnesty as a gift to our former blog mates?
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.
Question: Are we going to get the blogroll back? That was one of the most useful parts of the old site/Bubblehead.
s Absolutely. That was one of my favorite features of the old site. I’ve asked Blogmeister Ryan to transfer the blogrolls to this site and then take down the old HBO. It’s there for your viewing pleasure until then.
Question: How often do you use the HBO Central blogrolls?
