Blog Clog

Perhaps you've seen it - a MySpace page with so much, uh, stuff on it that you can't see the content. Then again, to even find a MySpace page with anything even remotely close to "content" is a feat in itself.

Me? I don't have a MySpace page. Or a Facebook page. I have a blog. A personal website, too, but we'll save that for later.

My blog is quite a spartan affair. I have a few ads so as to bring in a bit of revenue - hopefully, anyway - and a webmap of sorts so I can see where my visitors come from. And an ad for the stuff I created for myself at Cafepress.

Sure, I've been tempted to add a few "gadgets", but all they do is pull you away from the content I've so carefully put together. Like this text. And, unfortunately, click on any of those ads and you leave my content. But that's the trade-off for having ads.

There's a long held truth that a website - even a blog - should be treated like a destination, and not a stopping-off point.

So hang around for a bit, and come back often.

You won't need to search for the content - it'll be here in plain sight.
