Pimp My Blog: TypePad Says “Rational Security Is the Schizzle, Yo!”
The lovely folks at SixApart – purveyors of the fine SaaS/Hosting functionality "TypePad" (amongst others) have kindly named the blog of your’s truly as today’s "TypePad Featured Blog."
So, out of the approximately 1.2 Million blogs claimed as being hosted by SixApart, I seem to have offended enough of you and consumed enough bandwidth to warrant attention. I’m praying I won’t receive an email politely suggesting that I upgrade…
So, I’d like to start by thanking all the people who make this blog possible…Ummmm…
OK, so moving on, I’d like to thank all of you who read my little steaming pile of blogginess…last count has approximately 2,000 subscribers, although I believe my kids run 100 simultaneous instances of Google Reader under fake names in exchange for WebKinz and iTunes credits that I upload when they generate page views.
Seriously, though…blogging is a lot of fun. I love blogging my ideas and interacting with the lot of you. Even Rothman. No, especially Rothman. The only man I respect for wearing Crocs with socks in Vegas in 100 degree heat. Black, of course.
I’ve learned quite a few interesting lessons since I started blogging over a year ago (thanks to Alan Shimel who encouraged me to do so) and look forward to learning a lot more. One of things I’m going to force myself to do is write less — less words, that is. You people have the attention spans of gnats in heat, so I’m going to make it more A.D.D. friendly. Besides, when I leave big logic holes due to less words, you seem to participate more.
I’ve already told my wife I need an iPhone to make sure the blog renders correctly under Safari running on a mobile.
Now that I’m Blog King for a day (and Alex Hutton has one) she couldn’t possibly turn me down, right?
