So, err, my bad? Note that there is no comforting horizontal line at the "1 post a day" mark on the y-axis. I had no idea my posting was that erractic.
When I asked what topics you wanted to see more of, that list was the
topics I'd like to write more about. Those topics are highlighted in darker
blue in the graph. As you can see, I've been lousy about actually blogging the
things I'm most interested in. After travel, random links-from-cyberspace style
posts have been my post common topic.
I want to to clean up my categorization: combine programming with work, blog
with internet, writing with NaNoWriMo. But most importantly, I want to focus my
writing on the topics I'm actually interested in. And continue writing about
my life and the crazy antics of my friends, of course. No blog is complete
without "look what my friends did last night!" posts, right?
Finally, just for fun, I tallied up how many comments my readers have left. Boyfriends past and present, you are sad commenters!
It amuses me that, after me replying to comments, my own mother is my most
frequent commenter. Consider this in light of the Blogger help topic "What to
do if your Mom discovers your blog". Let's go through each of Blogger's
suggestions for hiding my blog from my mom. I already use a pseudonym that's
unambiguously me through the entire worldwide web, which my mom has been aware
of since the creation of "Arthaey." I already write some multi-lingual posts --
but she can sorta read Spanish, and Google is always at the ready with its
amusing translations. Blogger's suggestion of adding a "nomom" subdomain is just
silly for my Computer Science graduate mother; the word "subdomain" does not
frighten her in the least. I disagree with censorship in general, so that
suggestion's out too. Adding a "this blog is just fiction" disclaimer also
doesn't jibe with my intent, and I don't want to remove my blog's listing from
Google. So Blogger, you have no suggestions I'm willing to do that would
actually keep my mom from reading my blog! Of course, since I've finally
convinced her to sign up for Bloglines, I don't think keeping her from reading
my blog is actually one of my goals.
