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 google.com and key in

site:www.gutrumbles.com 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

site:gutrumbles.com/mt2/ velociman

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

It's a start...
