blogging: That Little Ping is a Wonderful Thing - 01/04/07 02:08 PM
The power of "pinging" was brought home to me in a big way tonight when this post on my Saskatoon blog appeared at the top of my Google Blog search results, just eighteen minutes after it was posted to my blog.

blogging: Are you a Blogoholic? - 11/15/06 11:45 PM
I just wanted to share two pieces that I found about blogging and the addictive nature of it.
