Thanks to Professor Rosen (NYU) at PressThink for the link to On How We Discuss Blogs. Similar thanks go out to Pops of 2hr Lunch (who I seem to recall once had the Talking Heads' (Nothing But) Flowers as part of his masthead) who referred to it as a must-read.
Debra Galant, of the recent New York Times article Child-Friendly or Child-Frenzied? writes that On How We Discuss Blogs is heavy reading (and Scheherazade Fowler unjustly referred to it as picking a fight). I promise, next April Fool's Day, it will be nothing but short, happy posts. File that one along with Lenten resolutions. [FN1]
I'm stupified at the many hits I've gotten regarding that post (about 900 so far today, according to Type Pad, and, just to keep me from getting uppity, Site Meter reports a whopping 84 hits), particularly since I knew it was so long (in fact, the version on the site is my "pared down" version, just because I even got tired of reading it). I'm curious as to what the thoughts of others are on this subject, as I don't know if I'm being nonsensical by giving such weight to this form of publishing.
1. As per previous years my actual Lenten resolution went along these lines:
PATERNAL UNIT: So what are you giving up for Lent this year?
TPB, ESQ.: Religion.
