friday five 072602


It’s time for the Friday Five! Its a weblog version, and it definitely has been fun to read the answers!

  1. How long have you had a weblog? Since April 2000. I think that’s longer than most anybody I’ve read doing the friday five today. smile I’m so excited now because all of my posts are finally converted into MT, after having a 9 month period trapped in unusable GM files that E wrote a script to parse for me. I imported the Blogger ones at the same time.
  2. What was your first post about? Explaining what a blog is - it’s here. The second post was thanking the digitaldivas for their tutorial on setting up a blog at Blogger.
  3. How many changes (name, location, etc.) of your weblog have there been, if more than one? Only once - it was HopelessRomantics until the beginning of this month, when I switched it to kadyellebee. Since :rina; blogged with me initially, the name fit the two of us better than it did just me. If you haven’t read it yet, here’s why its kadyellebee. all about kadyellebee.com
  4. What CMS (content management system) do you use? Do you like it or do you want to try something else? I am a proud user of Movable Type I also volunteer many hours a week to the MT forums and have very willingly donated to Ben and Mena for their great software program and will hopefully be able to donate more in the future. I’ve been everywhere, though! I used Blogger in the beginning, and then switched over to Greymatter. I really was happy with GM and its capabilities except that I had two big server outages which left me with tons of posts that I couldn’t recover. Between that and the possibility of having a program that was being more actively developed, I moved over to MT in October or November. I love it. Its great, and I’m learning so much by using it. I don’t anticipate changing. I like consistancy so much that I tend to stay a bit longer than the crowd around me. If I was to look at another software, it would be pMachine because Lee and Lynda rave about it so much.
  5. Do you read people who have both a journal and a weblog? Or do you prefer to read people who have all of their writing in one central place? I really like the term that Jess came up with - webjournalog. Because I feel it fits my style and the style of the people that I love the most. I like people who not only share their live in journal-type posts, but people who "live" online and post the pages they visit and have blog-ish tendancies where they give links to other places and fill out fun quizzes. Like Lynda, I really like people who have a lot of content. All of my favorites post *at the very least* once a day. This keeps me connected to them and keeps things interesting for me. If I visit people with more than one site, it tends to be a photolog, not a journal. Not to say that journals are bad, I really enjoy reading the longer posts, I just don’t have a lot of friends yet who I’ve found with journals.
