I'm at my home studio desk right now - it's a Friday evening - I had a great day at work - right now I'm on the net via pc1 (broadband) and pc2 (dial-up) while listening to Michael Savage on my radio... I've got a batch of brownies in the oven... I was just going to snap a pic of my little work area here so you could see but I realized I just put my cellphone on the charger and it's gonna be there for awhile...
Sometimes when I write a blog post I'm doing it simultaneously on the two computers, because each one has different characteristics and capabilities.
There's something "special" about the old faithful WinMe dial-up PC - once I get a webpage loaded on it, I spend a lot of time on that page - hence - all of the blogs I really enjoy reading are bookmarked on this particular computer!
Right now, I'm looking at Aldon Hynes' "Orient Lodge" blog. [Check out the link down below!] I think one of the reasons I like it so much is that it is chock full o' stuff, just like my blog here. There's a lot going on, and that's the way I like it. Oh sure, YOU might want a "plain vanilla" blog with little or no sidebar, no widgets... but when I'm on Aldon's blog, I feel like I'm a guest in someone's home. The latest post is the centerpiece, the "living room" if you will, and the rest is the furnishings in the room... the desk, the pictures on the wall, the magazine son the coffee table... in many ways, especially with us old school bloggers, a blog is very much like a digital home.
Yeah - I sell a few ads - I have my twitter feed in the sidebar - and other stuff - a lot of it is mostly for me, but it's also there for those certain "special" visitors, people are stopping by for a little shelter and hot chocolate on a snowy evening.
Please remember, friends, you are ALWAYS welcome here!
