The web is a free publishing medium - I love it. Of course, just like standing on the corner doing a street show to pass the hat, maybe nobody will pass, or those that pass won't stop.
Hey ho. I have information overload, like everyone else, so the chances of ANYONE reading this, or caring, is infinitesimal, but I have invited a few people over. You can probably get more interesting gossip in my local bar, if that's your thing.
One warning, from a friend's experience, if you get into Blogging just be aware that the choice of public/private only relates to Blog's own published lists. Mark it private, then publish it on the web, and Google might still find you through keywords. Just be aware.
