How I Blog

Did you end up on this page after clicking a link over at The Blog Herald ("more blog news more often")? If so, welcome! Please feel free to take a look around, make yourself comfortable, put up those tired feet. Not on the coffee table. On the ottoman. Mi casa es mi casa. ;-)
If you want direct links to the material mentioned in that essay, we'll serve 'em up, steamin' hot: historical plaques, public artworks, celebrity gravesites, the country's first black/gay mayor, the leader of America's second-richest Indian tribe, the guys who stand on corners and twirl arrow-signs, UC blogging course, baiting the alpha bloggers. And if you'd like to experience TDQ's greatest hits, click the Wallpaper/highlights link over in the upper-right-corner Menu box. My current faves are Botts' Dots, Crosswalk Countdown and Giant Rock. Yep - around here, the sobriquet "promo slut" is a consummation devoutly to be wish'd.
From what I understand, Matt Craven's How I Blog series was inspired by Fortune magazine's "How I Work" articles (Bill Gates, Marc Benioff, John McCain, Vera Wang, Wynton Marsalis, Howard Schultz, and many others). It's a fabulous idea, and I've really enjoyed hearing from the wide variety of thoughtful bloggers out there. Bravo, Matt!

It's 9am here in Budapest, and I'm just taking a short break from my Hungarian vacation to post this. Back next Tuesday. Ta!
