I’m rattling through my To-Do list for today, and I remember a comment I saw in the HaloScan forums last night. Jeevan pointed out that HaloScan had, justifiably, been nominated and I started to wonder how many of the Bloggies nominees used HaloScan. That lead me to ponder which blogging tool was the most popular…

In case you hadn’t noticed I’ve not really had the motivation to post here everyday. I mean, I still feel that I should (4 years of habit is hard to break, just ask Nadia, BB’s very own nicotine bitch) but it’s a bit of a struggle sometimes. Hiatus, shmatus though. You’ll just have to suffer…

I’ll stop after this. Business Plan. What is it and why did it prompt the new ‘revamped’ design? There is a lot of focus (rightly) on the new look and new features (and changed features).

I’m not a Moveable Type user, nor do I use TypePad, but that’s not the point. Having just read: Mena’s Corner: Where did those 22 other people come from? I’m struck by the honesty and courage it took to write it. It’s an honest appraisal of personal and company failings, and I’m sure it will…

We talked about it. But I won’t here. Not yet anyway, still too early. Possibilities and change. In fact I’m not sure I’ll talk about it here at all, I mean if it doesn’t happen then what would be the point? Vague enough? Yes… just… So onto today, tidy the house, do some shopping, head…

Ohhh and I’ve been on the ‘New Blogger’ for a week or so now. Very ‘nice’ but still lagging behind Moveable Type as far as features go. However I paid for Blogger Pro and I’ll support it for a while yet. Just wish there was more info about what is in the pipeline. Ev? Hello?

Superbowl hostingI knew I should’ve stayed up to watch it this year, but I didn’t and so I missed this Superbowl photo. Which admittedly isn’t particularly sport related.. so… ahem… moving on.. Pinky pointed out some hosting alternatives for me that would allow me to shift over to Moveable Type. I’m really not that keen…

I’m currently playing with the same kinda thing for my site that Shelagh is for Tripe Writing, and I’m very jealous of her as I can’t run Moveable Type (ISP doesn’t support it) and get use the new TrackBack feature. Boo! [slams door in huff]
