My linkblog merges with my realblog

Big wheel keep on turning... #

When Scripting News started, it was a linkblog. When I wrote an essay it would be on the DaveNet site, and I'd point to it from the linkblog, along with links to all the other things I linked to.  #

Then I figured out how to have the essays appear on Scripting News along with the links. #

I kept getting bug reports from people with feed readers that didn't like my links, so finally I gave up on the linkblog part. #

A few weeks after that, Twitter pops up. So I posted all my links on Twitter. #

Gradually I built up editorial tools for my linkblogging, casually at first, but lately, very seriously.  #

A picture named dave.jpgThis week I brought the linkblogging back to Scripting News, in the right margin. I'm happy with the result. I get to review my recent stories. And people who read this site in the web browser, and there are quite a few of them, are introduced to the links I've been pushing through Twitter. Reminding me that it was probably a mistake to give Twitter all my links, exclusively. Or lazy. Yeah, probably just lazy. But not no mo! :-) #

My stats are already showing improved circulation.  #

Good! There's life after Twitter. Happy. #
