Blog envy.

Since Dark Odyssey last year, there has been blogging all around me. Content in my Livejournal universe, I very rarely peered over the top of the window to see what else what out there in the scary internet world. I knew of these bloggers... online diaries taking on a more literary nature. I would stop in and read Singletails now and then, and then expanded to a few others. The commenting system seemed so... archaic to me though, and I enjoyed the community that Livejournal had to offer. So I stayed here.

But Dark Odyssey introduced me to wacky world of the sex bloggers. Four people who would expand my internet reading universe beyond all comprehension.

Viviane. Jefferson. Marcus. Selina.

Between these four, I discovered the amount of fucking and sucking that I only dreamed possible when I was in the throes of puberty. I saw sex taken to a new level. It was as if the writers of The New Yorker or The Atlantic Monthly started hosting orgies every other week. It was mind boggling, but a lot of fun to read.

Soon, I noticed that Livejournalers had blogs too. Lolita. My girlfriend. There were bloggers all around me.

And I noticed there was status here. You did not parade that you had a Livejournal account. But you boasted about your blog. You met up at blogger get-togethers, formed special blog clubs. Blog-chic was all around me, and I was left in my land of avatars.

I longed for the status of being a blogger.

But I'm lazy. And I really don't want another medium to write in. Livejournal is plenty for me!

My property* made me a proposal - to make me a website. And on it came a link to my "blog." But we all knew... it was just my Livejournal.

Not anymore. My slave* has one-upped my desires, all through the exciting magic of RSS feeds. Now I too can (pretend to) be a blogger! Now I can hold my head up high and say yes I'm (still a wanna-be) blogger too! Look! Look at my (fake) blog!

So exciting. I'm finally somebody (a poseur). My life is (pathetically) complete now.

Hee.

* What? Property? Slave? Boymeat, are you holding out on us???

Yep. Good future post on that one. I may not be a real blogger, but I can build some anticipation, right?

Well, it is fake because there are no permalinks and no comments and where the heck is your archive and recent posts? It's so bare bones, like it's naked.

I suppose you think that this thing that you are masquerading as a blog would earn your way onto my blogroll? Huh!

Been there, done that. Would have gotten the t-shirt if you allowed me to ever own another one.

Kids, simmer down. Honey, what makes you think you're not a blogger, FFS?tvi

Blogs are interactive because of posts are chrono order. And they have comments and tags. The software pings Techonorati and bingo, folks find you. Consider using tags if you want people to find you.

And remember, you *were* invited to tea, but you were teaching.

I'm so glad that I had a little bit of willpower...
...and waited to click on the links to the sex bloggers until I had finished the really important work tasks, because there is no way I'm getting anything else done for the rest of the night. *fans self and goes back to reading*

Re: I'm so glad that I had a little bit of willpower...
No more of a spaz than I, since I only figured it out last friday when you posted in LC's journal and two hours later something clicked (hence the, apparently excessively cryptic, comment that I made to you somewhere.) By the way, your blog is phenomenal. I read it for ages last night instead of actually getting any more work done. I think, therefore, that I will wait to click on the Chelsea Girl link, because I must must MUST get some content written before the film screening tonight or I will not be able to enjoy drooling over Angelina Jolie nearly as much as I'm sure she will deserve.

Point well taken. But there will always be issued with hosted blogs, as you know.

Burlap? Too scratchy. Couldn't you come up with something a little more velvety?

Having an email address readers can reach you at at is most important.

Technorati is a blog search engine. It helps viewers search by post, not by site (like Google). Wordpress is good about notifying Technorati that you've updated. The claiming helps with that too. I've seen bloggers say that switching from Blogger to Wordpress also helped them with their ranking on Google, too.

When figuring out what tags, categories to use I search the Technorati tags page (http://www.technorati.com/tag/) to figure out what tags have the most posts. The goal of Technorati and Google Blog search is to help readers find you more easily.

Also, submit your feed to Yahoo Feed DB:
http://publisher.yahoo.com/rss_guide/submit.php

I *really* need to post my Spring Fire presentation, cause it has all this stuff.

Oh, consider submitting a post to the Sugasm (http://www.sugasm.com).
