Updating Blog Posts

December 21st, 2009 2 comments

Here’s features I would like for my blog:

  1. A way for commenters to be emailed future comments on a thread. Volokh Conspiracy has that.
  2. A way to make sure that a particular post is “sticky” and stays as the first or the second or the n’th post appearing. VC has something like that too.
  3. A way for any post that I update to move from whatever date location it is in to the top of the list, with a note as to its original and new date.

A New Technology Weblog

I’ve set up a new weblog for Indiana University people who have useful things to say about computers, gadgets, and suchlike.

It’s at:

I wonder, by the way, if we will get spammed. You need a signon and password to make a blog post there, but I’ve posted both of those things at the top of the blog, so no registration is needed. Can a robot figure that out?

An idea. Any time I use the search engine to find an old weblog post, I should repost that entry. Looking it up is a sign that it is worth remembering, and perhaps worth improving.

Spam Blogging Shutdown. For some reason Google’s Blogger marked me as a possible “spam blogger” and shut me down for a day or two till I verified that I was a human. I’ve noticed I’m not getting spam now that I’ve shifted to Blogger, though I think that’s because the spambots have not noticed me yet.
