I’ve been professionally involved with web stuff for many years. Not on the technical end — the other end.
I started in the Mosaic days when a blog was a web log and lycos was my search engine of choice. Archie and Veronica were my friends. It was a different place. A pretty fun one too.
Now I’m blogging myself and I can’t believe it’s a verb. I’ve had a site since the mid-90s but this blog business is new and I’m thinking about what to write and what not to write.
So, I am not anonymous here and this site could be professional. I could talk about the latest tidbits from the world of PR. But I don’t really wanna. I’m not sure how exciting a PR blog would be.
I have also been thinking about blog policies. Not for me specifically but in general…what are some of the rules out there?
Yahoo’s (Yahoo!’s?) blogging guidelines are probably pretty standard but this is not going to be a staffer blog (oh, to be a Yahoo) but rather a personal blog. (Note the part about calling PR in the Yahoo guidelines BTW). Topics will be personal (but not too personal since my life is very boring and I would not want to burden my reader) and not work-related.
So that’s it. I am looking forward to drafting little vague tidbits about the things I am thinking about in my spare time. Could be fun.
