I notice on many other blogs, the poster tends to include link categories such as “blogs I read”. How can you constrain yourself to a fixed list? Part of the interest, for me at least, is following the meanderings to see where they lead to next.
I read a post (can’t even remember where it started) that pointed to Joshua Allen’s blog listing Microsoft employees who maintain blogs. I saw Don Box’s blog… which had a reference to Dare Obasanjo’s blog… and from one link, to another, to another…
Blogging is quickly becoming a very counterproductive interest for me. At least with Google surfing, I am somewhat contained by my own interests. Now I can be randomly distracted by everything from reviews on the latest movies to security attribute documentation in version 1.1 of the .NET Framework.
“Just don’t read it”, you say?
