Old School Bloggers

I spotted this Ask MetaFilter thread in my referrers: Any old-school bloggers still posting? They are! And I wanted an easy way to browse them so I scraped the page with Extract Links From Page, grepped away the internal links, and ran the results through a version of to get titles.

That gave me a condensed version of mostly old-school blogs that are mostly still running:

The personal web is a beautiful thing and it's still out there. Thanks MeFi community for putting this together! Be sure to read the thread for the full context of these links.
20 years!? This is like when you find out your favorite album in college is 20 years old. And also you were in that band.

Andy Baio redesigned his weblog and has some thoughts on why blogging is ok.

Couch to BlogK

What if I started blogging again? I used to enjoy putting words in an order specific to clearly convey ideas in a public setting. So my blog voice is rusty. That's why I need a program to help get me off the couch to go get my laptop and then back to the couch where I can craft content for the open Web. (Did we stop capitalizing Web?)

What do I have to lose? The blogosphere is a burned-out, empty forest with a few giant redwoods that survived that great social media blaze of the mid 2000s. I know the score. I have Google Analytics running here. It's just me and those few bots that know how to trick Google Analytics into thinking they're legitimate traffic. Come with me, clever bots, while I reclaim my corner of the blogosphere!

This program will consist of a forced writing regimin.
  • Not only words, but it's important to think about all of the digital artifacts of living. They're all moving toward the domain of companies in the name of convenience. This conversation explains some of the problems with that. [via waxy]
  • Nice to see MetaFilter at the top of this list--we've been working on site bandwidth. And I agree on the jQuery problem. There's a bandwidth cost associated with easier development.
  • Looks simple, sharp! Nice update.
