In the continuing saga of Blogging about Blogging:
I've been doing a lot of links lately, I know. For anyone that's interested, here's a bit of explanation.
I have three reasons I've been posting a lot more links.
Exercising some code
I've been tweaking the code for my blogging system. I've been adjusting how the linked articles are generated. Specifically, I have been trying to make Have a Mint analytics work with RSS feeds. It does not play well with Linked List type articles.1 I still have hope I can fix it, but for now, it does not work without modifying the URL of the post title.
I've been on vacation
It's summer. I like to read. That means I have a lot of stuff I'm plowing through in Instapaper and Fever.
I've been bored with the mainstream tech news
I have little interest in rumors or sensational headlines. I'm looking forward to Mountain Lion but I have all the info I need from three outlets I respect.2 I don't have anything intelligent to add to the discussion. Consequently, I have written little about "news".
If you like the links, then congratulations, you've found a treasure trove. If you hate the links, well, why are you still here?
I like diversity. For good or bad, this site is a reflection of my tastes and personality. I think the people that like the variety here are the people I would like to drink with. Everyone else can get off my lawn.
