Blogs

Postby Goat Boy » 17 Oct 2018, 15:19

Anybody have one? Plan to start one?

Have any recommendations as to what websites to use?

Any blogs you follow religiously?

I did my own for a while, got many hits, too. But it became a chore. So I am down to a monthly update, "Previews Picks". I only follow one, "Blimey!", for UK comics news.
1966 and all that

I have a comics blog on Tumblr. It's nothing but images - ZERO personality, zero commentary.

Somehow I have 2,400+ followers. :shock:

I still like some political blogs but not near as many as I used to. there was a time when I thought they were filling a gap that needed filled but I guess that gap has been filled up with other things. I still visit Digby's Hullabaloo & Juan Cole's Informed Comment but aside from a small handful, I think "social media" points me at the stuff I read now. either that or news aggregators.

some of blogs I used to read - I question my motives for reading them now because some of the people who wrote them were clearly insane.

Clipper Nolan had one. I guess he stopped it in 2017.

Blogs are so 2010.

They aren't even recommended anymore to increase SEO.

Even in a few short years, people's attention spans have decreased to the point where even reading a blog is too much.

Tumblr, like Machuki used, was THE blog platform, but that started losing popularity three or four years ago. Now it's all Twitter and Instagram. People like pictures. Before that, it was Word Press. I don't know if people even use that anymore for blogs.

In one of it's notorious bad business moves, Yahoo bought it for $1.1 billion in 2013. The founder, David Karp, walked off with $250 million. Yahoo paid him an additional $81 million to stay away from the platform he started.

Hope you hate context as much as I do!

Does lots and lots of porn count as context?

I kind of have two - and they're here on BCB, the Jimbo conspiracy thread and the Jimbo know truth threads. These are where I post things I find compelling, controversial or interesting and hope you do too.

And that is the beauty and versatility of a site like BCB where any of us can easily make a blog. Other BCB blog-ettes are Ray's photos, Qube's wonderful compilation music download, Matt seems to dominate the movie thread and there are probably others I can't think of off hand.

Thankfully you can only torment BCB with those and not the rest of the internet.

Turn your head all you want, apparently you won't find any porn after Dec. 17th

Tumblr will ban all adult content on December 17th

This won't affect me at all (like I said, strictly comics on tumblr for me) but it still strikes me as kind of an overreaction.
