Well, I have been thinking about how to make this blog make sense. As you know, I hope, the Curiously Long Posts is alive and well over at Sports Illustrated. And for a little while, for reasons that were not always entirely clear to me, I was running a mirror blog where I was essentially printing the same posts in two places.
Then, of course, my blog got hacked and I believe I was able to take it down before it handed out malware to every Snuggie loving sports fan in America.
So, now I have this easier-to-maintain blog ... which seems somewhat without a mission. I started out with the same Curiously Long Posts concept -- again reprinting stuff on the SI blog -- but I'm thinking now that this would make me a lot like the awesomely impressive WordGirl villain and criminal "Lady Redundant Woman."
So, I'm going to try to give this blog its own character ... we will see how that develops over the next few weeks. I don't know exactly how that will go, but I'm considering:
1. Guest posts.
2. More links.
3. More of a mix of shorter and longer posts.
Like I say, we will see. As you know, we here at Joe Blogs* are not always especially good at follow-through (I'm telling you, the iPad review is coming! It's coming soon!). But, this is the plan.
*Joe Bloggs, you may know, is -- well let's let Wikipedia explain: -- "commonly used as a placeholder names in United Kingdom, Irish, Australian and New Zealand teaching, programming, and other thinking and writing." I vaguely knew this, which was why I was calling the site "Joe Blog." I added the "s" to the name and changed the subtitle. Oh, yeah, things are changing now.
