something constructive

I promised this guy that I would contribute to his book about Southern Bloggers. (By the way--- that's an EXCELLENT post I linked to.) I haven't sent him anything yet. I need to be dragged off and shot.

I'm going to work on that project today. I have two problems to overcome: First, I don't know how to make sense of my archives anymore. This blog has been rebuilt FOUR TIMES since I started it, and the "search" feature doesn't work the way it should. I know I have some pretty good reads in there, but I don't know how to find them without doing a lot of plowing.

Second, I really don't like going back and reading stuff I wrote years ago, or even YESTERDAY for that matter. That's old news and when I DO go back and look at that stuff, I want to re-write it. I always believe that I could make it better, but if I try that idea, I usually fuck up the post because I'm thinking like an editor instead of a writer.

But I'm going to sort through my stuff today and send Adam some links to my archives. I like the book idea, and I want to be a part of it. Hell, if you're a Southern blogger, YOU should contribute, too.

Just send the links to Adam.


Jeez, he doesn't blog much.

Chablis--why don't you get a job? You clog up the bandwidth here.

That was a great post you linked to, A-man.
He is a really good writer. As you know well, it is very good to have a place to (for lack of a better word) discuss things that are better not kept inside.

Chablis--- tell fuckface to kiss your ass. You're ALWAYS welcome here.

Use google, it's very easy.

Go to and key in wimmin

This will give you all of your posts with the word wimmin in it. Just swap out the word or phrase you're looking for, and you'll get a list of the appropriate posts.

format is, site colon [site name] space [search string]

I tried doing something similar with your comments velociman

It gives you a list of all of your comments that contain Velociman, but the links don't work.

It's a start...
