Hello everybody (This being the one post nobody will probably read, as this blog is brand new, and I’m not linking out of this post, saying everybody might be a bit too much. But Hello nobody won’t be proper in case someone do come in, so there).
I have now officially joined the (small but oh, so very loud) ranks of the blogging masses.
Not quite sure what I think about it, but I suppose my overall attitude has to be positive, or I wouldn’t have done it. Makes sense. Question is if I do.
So let’s go over some technical details.
Individual archives for all posts. I really
Hate Don’t like those multiple posts in one page. Makes it very hard to find something, or to link to something. Named anchors are a wonderful concept, but regularly seem to fail miserably on the real world.
Comments would be open for all posts. Of course part of the reason is that I don’t expect much, so can leave the possibility open. Even was it otherwise, I would still try to leave comments open. If someone wants to… well… comment, then they should be able to.
I do reserve the right, however, to change my mind at the future if for some inexplicable reason I find my posts pulling in comment spam or flame wars. Shouldn’t happen in the foreseeable future, though.
No explicit spellchecking will be done on posts, unless I catch myself in some dreadfully embarrassing mistakes, or unless someone else complains.
Meaning I won’t take the whole post and run it through a spellchecker. I would however not insert spelling mistakes on purpose. I would also try to read posts at least once before posting, so I have a decent chance of catching glaringly obvious errors. Or not.
Although I probably will change my opinion on this one if I actually get readers. It’s just not worth the effort when only I read it.
Feed will contain full text of posts. I don’t expect any serious bandwidth problems anytime soon… ;-)
As for what I’ll be posting about… I don’t have any clear ideas except for the next few posts. Those however should not be taken as thematically representative, just as some things I want to get off my chest about now. I hope in time I’ll find myself either focusing better, or not focusing but not caring about it.
Time will tell.
That’s it for now.
