This is the first time I have posted about this stat. This blog will cross the 80,000 independent viewer hit mark today. That’s the stat since I started the blog in late 2005 or about 4 years ago. I’m no A-level blogger but I am amazed that my modest efforts here have gotten that much attention in the blogosphere.

I credit for most of this activity. I have tried two other blogging platforms, Live Space and Typepad, and got very little exposure with them. I heartily recommend

Thx to all those 80,000 hitters!

Here is the link!

And  here is what it says about me and my words:

The analysis indicates that the author of
is of the type:

ISTP – The Mechanics

The independent and problem-solving type. They are especially attuned to the demands of the moment are masters of responding to challenges that arise spontaneously. They generally prefer to think things out for themselves and often avoid inter-personal conflicts.

The Mechanics enjoy working together with other independent and highly skilled people and often like seek fun and action both in their work and personal life. They enjoy adventure and risk such as in driving race cars or working as policemen and firefighters.

Embedding a Wordle

leave a comment »

You can see two wordles on the left hand side of my blog, one with a black background and the other white. I was reading about embedding wordles and realized I had the tools to do it with Skitch (to grab the screen image as a .jpg) and Mars-Edit to receive the .jpg and post it to my blog.

So here is the embed:

I consider my purpose here.

For one thing it is a place where I record all the interesting stuff (text and images) that I run across in my web space wandering. Some times I even add my critical thoughts about some of these accretions. Probably this is in line with thoughts of Nicholas Carr, as in:

Bloggers do similarly useful work. In fact, the blogosphere may best be thought of as a vast digestive tract, breaking down the news of the day into ever finer particles of meaning (and ever more concentrated toxins).

It’s worth remembering that, in a literary context, another word for “parasitic” is “critical”. Blogging is, at its essence, a critical form, a means of recycling other writings to ensure that every molecule of sense, whether real or imagined, is distilled and consumed.

So if someone wants to call my blog parasitic, or even bacterial, that’s fine with me. I’ll consider it not an insult, but a compliment.

Whatever it is I do or not here, it is an electronic collection point among millions of others in the BlogSpace.
