the three years of suds

On this exact date and time in 2006, the first post was published on this site. Modern Soapbox was initially created as a public journal for the masses to continue the blog I updated on MySpace and has become a collection of prose and other random bits of writing over the years.

2009 is about four months from being over. MySpace is suffering its downward spiral into unpopularity since Facebook & Twitter has climbed to the top of the social networking mountain. Modern Soapbox is still kicking it strong with 600+ published posts and will continue into its fourth year and probably fifth.

My internet service from where I do most of the posting has been intermittent since late last week, so I haven’t been able to get things done on here that I’ve been meaning to do. The appearance of this site was going to get a makeover by today, but that didn’t happen since I did not have access to it for most of the weekend. The revised plan is to roll out the new appearance within the next week or two. The surprise is ruined but we’ll consider it a belated birthday present. Peace out.

the transfinite cardinals (the bloggers blogging about blogs)

Why is blogging about blogs something bloggers love about having a blog? A blogger many times will search for their blog. A blogger’s goal sometimes is to improve the blog’s SEO and get more hits. A bloggerific blog will usually blogvertise by setting up an SEO keyword to make more money to fund their blogilicious weblog that gets more hits than Google, Yahoo and Boing Boing.

This has been a feeble attempt at a feed aggregator‘s wet dream. Bloggers blog about blogging blogtalk trackback shoe shine because newsfeeds will eat a blogger’s writing like a hungry leech like in bittorrents and those mininova delights.

The portals are Mozilla Firefox 3 and the latest version of Thunderbird. Bloggers waste blogtime by watching YouTube. Blogs on MySpace are so passé. Having your own domain is where it’s at. Posting posts and leaving comments, making a gravatar, and sharing what they think about WordPress 5.0 (an anachronism at the time of this writing).

If you’ve read this far, then you probably realize by now that this post is nothing but an intermediate gateway driven by hyperlinks and keywords and talking about the latest gadgets like the iPhone or speaking nostalgic like free NES ROMs or even saying the United States and terrorism in the same sentence.

The internet loves it. The One Machine could not exist if it wasn’t for blogtastic blogartistic blogsmiths blogging about chocolate rain or this video.

Where you are right now, right at this moment, peering into a single facet of the digital universe assembled with insane combinations of ones and zeroes. That’s why bloggers blog about blogging in their blogs.
