What do you care what other people think?
Is there a name for a blog that tells the story of one’s life? Biog? Biographlog? Bioblography? Whatever you call it, that’s what this blog is, and I’m writing what I care about.
I am always perplexed about which articles are popular and which are not. For example, I expected these articles (which I believe to be controversial, interesting, and current) to be more popular:
- HOOTERS vs. BOO BEES (4/2/2006)
- Erik Demonstrates Why The EFF Is Wrong About Yahoo Overture And Trademarks (2/27/2006)
- Ebay Still Spamming Customers (9/15/2004)
- Tips On File Sharing From An Unlikely Source – Dell (4/22/2004)
So I have replaced the “random entries” module with a new one called “Erik’s Favorites.” I have been writing for a long time. This weblog currently has archives dating back to 1992. I have older stuff queued up for possible future publication. I am my own toughest critic. It turns out that I end up really liking only about nine percent of what I write. Or perhaps that, upon further review, only about nine percent of my articles stand the test of time. And who knows how I’ll feel the next time I review my favorites.
