Way to go, Google…

Sunday, May 8th, 2005

Oh, and before I forget – kudos to Google for their Blogger tool. I was up and running with the brand new blog in less than an hour (seriously). I had the template reconfigured to match the rest of my site within another couple of hours (this is what I thought would take days & days of work), and I’d learned how to use the various administrative tools in a matter of minutes.

I’m sure there’s much more to learn, but in terms of getting me 80% of the way there very quickly, color me impressed. Especially given the cost…

Hello World

Sunday, May 8th, 2005

OK, folks – here goes. The rather inauspicious beginnings of the 9,727,428th web log on the planet (this according to Technorati, of course). Welcome to I Should Be Sleeping.

There will be much more to say later, but for now, let’s start with this:

My inspirations are Jeff Porten, who recently started his own blog and has been pretty good about updating it, John Scalzi, who’s blog I read & comment on frequently, suggesting I do have time for this kind of thing, James Lileks, who posts something worth reading just about every single night, Glenn Reynolds, who basically started the whole thing, and to a lesser extent, others (see the Blog Roll at the left).

My goals are vague, yet lofty. Basically, this will be my place to weigh in on things in my world. If it mirrors my e-mail habits (which I believe it will) you’ll see a lot of technology talk here, as well as some politics, some sports, and anything else that catches my fancy. Hopefully, others find it interesting and turn it into a discussion, and we’ll all be better off in the end. If not, well then heck – at least I figured out how to create a blog…
