Welcome

After months of posting horrible comments on other peoples' blogs, I finally set up my own. I guess I should have done this a while ago.

Someone asked me if I liked "the smell of death in the morning" (obviously trying to make it sound like I'm some kind of monster). I wanted to reply "no, I prefer the smell of freedom".

Freedom from oppression. Freedom from war. Freedom from genocide and democide. Freedom from corruption. Something many parts of the world are still struggling to achieve - and some aren't really getting anywhere.

Whoa! Very cool!

I hope this doesn't mean you'll stop posting those great comments on MO, though...

No, I don't think I will stop posting comments, rather I suspect when I find I'm writing a really long comment, or writing similar things in several blogs, I will post it here instead and link from my comments. That should allow for a more coherent discussion :)

Welcome to the wonderful, time-sucking world of blogging. Read your WP post, excellent, excellent stuff. Verging on Clueless levels of verbosity. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

I don't know if Blogger has its own traffic meter, but I suggest adding a Sitemeter (free at www.sitemeter.com) to, um, meter your site.

It's sort of the standard and is used in NZ Bear's Ecosystem and everything.

Plus, unless you really don't want people to know, keep it set so others can look at your stats. That's sometimes interesting.

One final recommendation is to not go toally berserk right away and bump your blogging to the top of your priority list. Wait at least a week or so before doing that...

Yep, sorry, I know I'm verbose, that's why I decided to post that stuff here rather than in someone's comments, hehe.

Murdoc, I thought about that. I was surprised that blogger.com doesn't have some kind of basic hit-counting but I suppose it would put extra load on their servers.

I'm kind of writing this stuff just to get it out of my system and I don't care that much how many people read it but there's no reason not to know, I suppose.
