I thought this Tumblr thing was perfect for blogging, since it automatically duplicates any linked images, and posts them to a data.tumblr.com directory. But then I realized it only does that when you post an image by itself. Grrr! So now we’re nearly back to square one – if I want to post an image within the text of my post, I have to upload it to Tumblr, then copy that URL and paste it in here. Hassle! Why can’t I have a more convenient solution? Why!?

I also don’t know how I feel about this WYSIWYG editor. I’m so used to [[html editing]] that I feel weird using ctrl-b for bold.
Well, thanks a lot, Madsimian! (What should I use as your main link page? You’re all over the freakin’ place!) You’ve gotten me into yet another online .. thing. (You, meanwhile, have way too many things. Pick two or three and stick with them! Soon you’ll need a website to keep track of all the websites keeping track of the things you post to different websites.)
First, of course, it was blogging. Then it was podcasting. Then it was Twitter. Then it was Wikipedia. Obviously, MS can’t be blamed for all of these, but I’ve started down a rhetorical path, and I shall not be deterred! (Hey, this text editor is a bit funky.)
I hope you’ll be able to enlarge that comic when you click on it. Otherwise, me and Tumblr are going to have words. (Update: You can’t, so I have to provide a link for the larger image. Grr!) It’s from Overcompensating, a superb comic I learned about from Netfluvia. (Soon none of us will have real names – only our witty little online nicks. 5w337!)
Anyway, I have high hopes for this project. Maybe it will get me actually blogging again. I must say, the old-style blog was getting to be a bit tedious. I’m a modern American high-tech internaut. I need everything simplified to one-click activity, and then converted to keyboard shortcuts so I never have to use the mouse.
Hmm. Can I not embed videos into these text posts? Grrr. I’ll have to find a way. Oh well. I’ll have to post TimeWasters™ separately.
