All That’s Fit To Blog

My friend Rob Christensen (that’s a plug for his PageRank) is getting his teeth sunk deeper into this blogging thing. Recent entries include his adoption of an RSS news reader/blog publishing tool, linking to an XPath parser for Flash, and a cool smattering of recent astronomy news. Moreover, his RSS feed now features complete entries and he’s hosting a blog for Mori Dinauer (another shameless plug) which is also worth a read.

Also worth more unabashed plugs are Jessyca Wallace and Brian Poulsen’s blogs. Jessyca’s new design and multitopic format are refreshingly distinctive while Brian’s recent CSS refinements have produced a sharp new structure.

All very nice. Keep it coming!

[Also: Sam Oh points out that his redesigned blog is now built with valid XHTML 1. He’s also got his RSS feed up and running. And, of course, Scott Yager is blogging again too. Yes, everyone is blogging these days.]

aaahhhh….Moveable type.

Brian Poulsen

Hey Walt - Thanks for mentioning that, and the compliment ;)

Walt Dickinson

Yes, thank goodness Movable Type has come into the world. Brian you’re still running your custom blogging tool right?

Rob Christensen

Plugged by iWalt.com? Too good to be true. :)

Brian Poulsen

Walt - Yessir I’m still using my Homebrew. Seems to be the right answer for me. It’s much more customizable I think. Else I should start writing Movable Type Plugins. That would be cool actually.

Sam Oh

hey i should something for getting my site validated right? Grant I don’t have all the cool things or look as nice

Sam Oh

thanks Walt

and thanks Mike) for his help

Brian Poulsen

So what’s a plug ? slang for blog? ;)

Walt Dickinson

Nah. Plug, like when an performer goes on a talk-show to promote their new movie. That’s a plug. Or when in the middle of a sports broadcast the announcer says, “Brought to you by delicious corn chips.” That’s a plug.

Brian Poulsen

ahh ok :)

Sam Oh

what no plug for Scott? :)

Walt Dickinson

Fer cryin’ out loud, his blog wasn’t even up and running when I started this unwieldy post!

Jessyca Wallace

Unwieldy or not, thanks Walt!! Plugs are always appreciated…as were your kind words…now if I could only manage to scrape a few hours together to fix the damn bugs…I wrote the app myself and I missed a few crucial details :-)
