I have a blog but don't know what to do with it!

Postby chustar » Sat Mar 15, 2008 11:11 pm UTC

I was looking around blogger.com at the different blogs there and I decided to check if my username was registered. I checked but the name I use everywhere on the internet was free! So I immediately registered it but now, I don't know why I bothered. There's no reason to have it. I wanted to get feedback on this, should I delete it so someone else who does have something for it can register it or if not, what do you think I should do there?

If you're interested in creating a net identity for yourself, keep it.
For a while I went around creating dummy "joeframbach" accounts all over the place so nobody could pose as me on well-respected sites.

...I don't have that problem, as there are Cheeses all over the internet already.

I was actually quite surprised that I got this name here, as I'm user number 13843...

If you think there's even a small chance you'll want to use it (with that username) in the future, you may as well keep it. What's the worst that can happen?
This is a placeholder until I think of something more creative to put here.

Agreed, it doesn't hurt to just keep it around and not use it. I had one that, until about a week ago, hadn't been used in 5 years or so. I resurrected it for a project blog, and now don't really know if I am going to start up on that project, being the lazy person I am.
Odds are I did well on my probability exam.

all I did with mine was post something about an unfinished rocket propelled chainsaw mod for UT2004.

I'm planning to do it properly in UT3

I think I registered myself of some blagging blogging site a while back.

I have never used it and have no intention to do so. Mainly because I thought
1) I have nothing interesting to write about and
2) No one would care to read it anyway.

There was also the issue of actually writing in it which would take time. Which I have, but use for other things.... like xkcd forums...

Blogging is simple. All you have to do is respond to stimuli.

Suggestion: don't use it as a journal, unless you want to chronicle something interesting and unusual that's happening in your life, like traveling to Europe for six months, or trying to break into the movie industry as a gaffer, or working as a bartender in New York, or touring with some washed up hair metal band. That "I had a sandwich today, lol" shit gets boring fast. I can write a lot more interestingly and stay engaged a lot better when I pick a subject and stick with it, like food or costuming. And I like reading single-subject blogs a lot more.

JUMP INTO THIS BIG BLOGGING UNIVERSE!

THE BLOGIVERSE!

JUMP IN, AND BLOG TO YOUR HEARTS CONTENT.

GO! BLOG! BLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOG!!!!

*ahem* But on a more serious note: What I am wondering is why you made the blog in the first place. People use it to chronicle their life, talk to their friends, write stories, etc etc.

I think I share the sentiment of the topic creator. You start a blog/blag/bleg with that inner pipe dream of creating internet content, but then when you sit down to type it, you can't think of anything worthwhile that people are guaranteed to notice and find interesting/funny.
