Back to Blogging

Doc Searls

So I can get back to all the stuff I’ve neglected in the meantime, including this: blogging. I think it was twelve years ago today that I put up the first post on this blog.

What this means is that I now get links to every post where the author includes my blog in their blog roll.

Let’s move tweeting off Twitter

Doc Searls

Tony Karrer

This means that not only do they index the full post even if the blog publishes a partial feed, but it means that they index the non-post parts of the pages as well.
