I think I'm going to once again make some changes to where and how I blog.
I think I'm going to give technology and movie reviews at first run on The Watchful
Politics will be the main stay on Xanga, but may also run on No Agenda Report
unless it's local to town or whatnot at which point hyper-local content will either run on News Platoon
or Discovering Huntsville
(if there are enough writers interested in that site).
I am, of course, putting all the interesting news stories I run across on tumblr
. I'm also using tumblr to point traffic to my blogs as I author them. tumblr will also carry content like political images and youtube videos.Twitter
has been pretty much mirroring my tumblr account, thought I also use Twitter for crowdsourcing and having conversations with various friends, internet or otherwise.Live Journal
has become a personal and portfolio site. I know that I've been making a lot of protected posts on Xanga lately that, even to me, is counter-intuitive given that Live Journal is supposed to be reserved for that kind of stuff. There's a reason for this: there are people on LJ that live in town. What I ha've been posting about lately I'm not ready to share with those folks. Sure, I could make yet another friend filter, (which I have considered doing) but the people that I want reading this content have two things in common: they have Xanga presences and they aren't in town.
It is possible that I might still use Xanga as a catch-all but just not give Xanga first run on the majority of the content. All I can say is we'll have to wait and see. As it stands, if you really, really want to consume all of my content, your best best is to subscribe to either my Twitter or to my tumblr (both have RSS feeds), but this is going to mix in stories from the day.
Thank you for your kind attention.
P.S. Xanga themes are retarded. I'm guessing that when I changed my background color
that's what broke the CSS. Or it could just be that that Xanga is fucked up entirely. Even so, my CSS only works on my private page (though the link formatting still works on the public side; odd.) If you feel like bitching to Xanga on my behalf, I'd be much obliged.
