Five Questions To Bloggers

Here's a new viral thread working its way through the DNA of the blogosphere:

1. Why did you start a blog?
I'd flirted off and on with the idea of being a writer, and wanted to force myself to write regularly (unfortunately, I've been more of a linker than a writer recently).

2. Do you have a blogmother/blogfather?
Not really, though my first permalink came from Prof. Chris Hall.

3. Has it helped/hurt/had no effect on your professional life?
It has had little effect on my professional life. I did remodel my law department's website using the html and css skills I learned blogging, so maybe it helped more than hurt.

4. Do your 'real world' friends know that you blog?
Many, but not all. Few read it.

5. Do you have a blog crush?

(First seen at Ted's site, where I answered them in comments).

1) So Herbey would shut the fjuck up and leave me alone.

2) Herbey 'thinks' he is... Matty O'Blackfive is my blog-uncle... and Misha too.

3) Helped... got me back into HTML and I learned how to do CSS... way back when about 1995, I designed a site for a restaurant I was managing using HoTMetaL Pro... Turn on a fan - I'm fartin dust over here! (hey... the first meg of ram I ever bought cost $99!)

4) I pissed all my friends off... but even then, they couldn't understand the whole "blogging" thing anyway.

5) I used to have one on Emma till she pissed me off. Now I guess I'll just have to follow the links to the porn sites on Bad Example!
