Frontpage Antics
« on: July 03, 2008, 01:49:32 PM »
Okay, I just spent the morning cleaning out my Gmail, and have started queuing up the "Sunday Archive" series.  So far, I have 13 weeks set up!  And much more to come.  It'll start this weekend.

These mostly include shit from 2004 onwards, though I will dig up some older stuff from Plutonium Empire once I'm done with Gmail.  So, right now, we'll see lots of stuff from my "email dream diary," Oscar Bin Laden outtakes, notes to myself and half finished articles,  book proposals, etc.

Sometime this weekend, I'll also unearth the Boble and set that up for Wednesdays, again programming well ahead so I don't have to think about it.

We can start doubling up the WS blog here too on Tuesdays if you want. I keep up with that pretty regularly.

You mean repost the WS blog on GS? 

I've been doing pretty well with the front page.  But I've long threatened to post the Boble, and all this archival stuff is fun to go through... I don't know, people may hate it.  A bunch of years old, unedited, half finished stories...

I'm always thoroughly entertained by Nacho's front page articles, even when he's ranting about his commute and threatening to show up to work in a rabbit suit and a shotgun. It's that much better when you're at work, too, because it looks so innocent, at first. Wakka wakka wakka!  :shaking2:

Sure. I mean if you want the content. If not, no worries.

Well, sure.  It'll break up those shotgun and rabbit suit stories and give you more coverage, because three people read the front page!

You still have your login info?

Tuesdays are yours, then.  You'll see a category in there for you.  Might want to announce clearly on the first one that you're not me, since the last 102 posts are all Nacho all the time!

Despite this current project, I'm not adhering to a single post a day.  These are different times, I think.  The New World of Google Reader.  So I may also post on Tuesdays if the mood strikes.

So RC confessed yesterday that he hasn't been to the front page in six months.  What kind of friend is that, huh?

RC is the polar opposite of me, who reads them voraciously at work mere seconds after they hit my RSS reader.

First Sunday Archive went up yesterday.  Programmed up to 20 so far... That's into November!  I've hit 2007 in Gmail just now, and see why I stopped writing for GS.  Suddenly the trash emails go from unfinished (or finished, even) articles to BRAIN SURGERY!  and DEAD DAD! and so on.  Pretty much everything from early March (when I signed up for the surgery) through May is a crazy circus of running the press stuff for The Fires and recovering from the surgery.  And then dealing with Dad (which extends into June of last year).

This is fun...now just writing endless one off front page articles and programming them.  My new goal is to book up the next 200 days with an article every day.  Then sit back and do nothing.
