After Fred brought the groceries in, Tubby decided that he needed to sit and guard the bag of cat food. Getting impatient, because Fred hadn’t carried the bag of food upstairs and poured some fresh food for his majesty, Tubby started bitching “Give me food, damnit!” This is the reason it takes me a long time to write entries some days. She looks so damn comfortable, how could I possibly disturb her sleep? Friday Five. This week’s questions are focused toward those who have weblogs, but I’m going to change “weblog” to “journal” and answer the questions that way. 1. How long have you had a [journal]? It will be three years in October, which just amazes me. Before I started the journal, I thought for sure I’d run out of things to talk about after about a week – imagine my shock when I think about the fact that I’ve posted 5 days a week for most of the life of my journal. 2. What was your first post about? It was a basic “welcome to my journal” post, followed by a bitch about my parents, who were going to come visit for 10 lonnnng days. 3. How many changes (name, location, etc.) of your [journal] have there been, if more than one? I’ve only changed the directory so that you can go straight to bitchypoo.com and not have to go to bitchypoo.com/bitchypoo.html. I’ve thought about changing the name once or twice – I always thought “The Bitch Factor” would be a good name – but since the domain is bitchypoo.com and I don’t want to have to deal with moving shit around and buying a new domain and all that. When I bought RobynAnderson.com, I thought I’d move bitchypoo over there, but I like that I only have to type bitchypoo.com to get to my main page. 4. What CMS (content management system) do you use? Do you like it or do you want to try something else? Well… I use Dreamweaver, but I sense that that’s not really a CMS. I’ve thought about switching my diet journal over to Moveable Type so that people can leave comments, but don’t know if I’m going to do that or not. 5. Do you read people who have both a journal and a weblog? Or do you prefer to read people who have all of their writing in one central place? I prefer weblogs to not have journal-type entries in them – I’m picky, and prefer to have journal entries each on their own page – but it all depends on the writing. To me, weblogs are meant to have short, quick entries, whereas journals are for longer entries. Of course, that’s just my opinion.]]>
