Utterly Meaningless » Blog Archive » TAKING THE BOEING

    Filed at 8:39 pm under by dcobranchi

    Sometime in the next 24 hours or so, I’m going to become a professional blogger. OK, stop laughing and get up off the floor. Helen Hegener has asked me to join the ranks of Home Education Magazine with a blog based on what I’ve always done here. So here’s the deal:

    The new blog will take the old name. That seemed to make the most sense as it matches the magazine’s name.

    I’m going to post almost exclusively education issues there. So no gay marriage or ID. (Well, maybe a little ID.)

    OT posts will stay over here. I will also cross-post to HE&OS everything I post at HEM. The carrot to get y’all to come on over to the new blog is that posts here will be on a 24-hour delay. (Or is that a stick?) Tim, Alex, and Darby (if she ever escapes from TVLand) are free to post anything they want over here. If they scoop me, good on them.

    A nice feature on the new blog– the WordPress software offers an RSS feed for comments on individual posts. So you can subscribe and see whenever anyone has continued the conversation. It also shouldn’t lose comments (unlike MT lately).

    Which reminds me– I wrote SixApart three times asking a question about upgrading from 2.64 to the current version of MT. Nary a word back. Good business model.

    Anyway, as soon as I’m given the OK to go live, I’ll post the URL here. I hope you’ll at least drop by to check out the furniture.

    Don’t be surprised if Anil answers here in less than 24 hours. His ability to sniff out posts critical of Six Apart is downright scary.

    If he worked for the government I’d be really concerned!

    We at HEM are quite delighted to have Daryl blogging for us! HEM webmaster Mark went salmon fishing for the weekend, so we might need to release Daryl’s blog when he gets back, but we’re all looking forward to this new adventure.

    And Daryl, I finally spent some time backtracking links and figured out what “Taking the Boeing” is about. Just don’t lose your edge, okay? (As if…)

    Congratulations, Daryl. I’m so proud to have you “out there” representing homeschoolers like me. I couldn’t be happier for you AND for us.

    I’ll do my part to help keep up with the ID and gay issues. And, um, since you won’t be needing that nest egg of a legal fund anymore now that you’ve gone “legit”…[g]

    All my best to you. Sincerely, you are an asset.

    Yay! What an awesome opportunity. 🙂 And I can’t tell you how much I love using WordPress after years of fighting with MT.

    I’ve been a “Daryl fan” for quite a while. I couldn’t be happier about this turn of events.

    Congrats, Daryl – See ya over there!
