thinking about blogging....
« on: January 09, 2012, 03:37:16 PM »
with the recent outage, I returned to thoughts about having my own blog.   I would guess mine would focus on food, drink, and me ranting at the willfully ignorant. ;)   I'd love to have a clever name but I am not gifted in that way. 

any suggestions on hosts, etc?  and anyone havinga  great blog name that they'd like to part with, I could go for that too  ;D

Wordpress has been great so far.  I don't blog as much as I used to though, because I have no readers!  But yeah, the free Wordpress is simple, and it stays out of your way.  Create an account, pick a theme, and write stuff.

Now, naming it, that's a completely different challenge!

WordPress has the edge on the best blogging software. You could either do free hosting with WordPress (and risk having them delete some or all of your stuff -- it can happen) or go over to SquareSpace for $12mo and let them host your site with WordPress software, plus a few other features. SquareSpace updates everything for you automatically. I will be moving one of my domains over to SquareSpace in the next few months.

I vote for this one!

I like this one best, too.

I've also been thinking about blogging.  I have an account set up and everything, but I've been slack about doing any writing -- there are just so much distractions these days, not like in college when it was a lot easier to focus.  My blog, if I ever get it off the ground, is going to be called "Parrish: The Thought", a title I've also used for my very-occasional column in the local Mensa magazine.

never even thought of playing on "velkyn".  Must be getting old  ;D  There's also the "velkyn death grip"  8)

I do like it also like "steam roller with cleats".  worse people to be associated with then Ethel Merman.   Thought about "Snow Leopard Chow".   Been looking at various quotes from people and characters I like.   Got "nailing weasels to my door" from Spider Jerusalem.  Allof the good quotes from Hunter S. Thompson are already taken.

ahh, too many good one from everyone!

Not any of the ones here, but I think I have my name.   With the SOPA protest, I think I'll register it tomorrow.

Thanks. I've always liked the story I paraphrased the title from - a wonderful surprise ending.

I've finally took the first step.   "Club Schadenfreude"  is registered at wordpress.  Now I just have to figure out how to set everything up.  I'm now slowing going through the "how to" instructions and waiting for some graphics I've ordered to do a little art deco tweaking on the blog.

Cool.

I didn't even know that case was going on. What's so hard about changing it to, "As members of [school], we strive to be moral upstanding citizens.... ... with the loving support of our parents and community."

Nope... they must have, "Our Heavenly Father... ... Amen."   &) Poor Christians don't like the First Ammendment that it backs others too.
