Welcome to The Blog Columnist

August 10, 2006

Evolving from the GonzoBlog into what you see today is (drumroll, please)… The Blog Columnist.

GonzoBlog was my own personal spin, views, rants and raves on what I saw happening in our little corner of the internet: the blogosphere (is that term still in vogue or has it gone the way of information superhighway). It was my own canvas and I splashed around a lot of color.

Well it’s time to move on or better yet morph it into something better, different, more focused

I’ll be posting 3-4 times a week and it’ll be much like a traditional column. I’ll include lots of link outs to interesting things happening around the blogosphere – resources, tips, news items etc., that I find to be good reads and I’ll of course have my usual say, aka slightly off-the-wall rants and opinions, linkbaits and shit-stirring just like a good opinionated blog should do.

It’ll be a brief read, full of tidbits, that I’m sure that many, in our ever busy lives, would appreciate – well you better cause I’m spending 15-20 minutes of my week on this.

BTW, did you know that I run ePublishingDaily – take a looksee…

Also, bare with me if you see any screw ups here in the short term, I’m trying out for the first time the Performancing for Firefox tool to publish my posts – I’ve finally gotten sick and tired of wordpress.com being painfully slow EVERY time.

If the Performancing Plugin does the job smoothyl here as I expect it should – then I’ll start using it on my main blog, once again ePublishingDaily.

    Congratulations on the new home, Martin! It seems you just can’t stand still! Good luck with performancing. I hope it works for you! I’m looking forward to this new blog of yours It should be a fun one, if I have any idea of where you might go with this.

    Hey Liz … you’re always the first to comment when I start something up.

    Yeah, you’re right: I’ve got that “I can’t stand still” in me. But it’s all part of the journey and the master plan – if you know what it is please let me know. 😉

    BTW, I had an eventful last 5 days – check my lastest post at

    Give me a day or two and we’re back on track with your opus.

  3. Hi Martin. I hope you haven’t given up the Gonzo blog .. it’s been an inspiration for my call HART crazy rants and rave blog. But,. I have now added this RSS feed to my gazillion feeds in my Bloglines under the folder (and yes I’m keeping it titled that way)… BLOG NETWORK: Home Office Voice

    PS: I’ve opened up a few new blogs too .. interested in knowing how your day’s going to be? http://HART-Oscope.com >> that’s one of ’em.

    G’Day HART,

    The Gonzo Blog, I’m not sure. Nice to know I’ve inspired you.

    I’ll probably keep it going, less posting but because I’m doing all my stuff at The Blog Columnist I’ll probably delve into more crazier stuff at GonzoBlog … when the mood strikes.

    Hmmm, your bloglines folder on me should be realigned.

    The Gonzo Blog should be under Misc/ crazy stuff

    The Blog Columnist should be under Blogging News type folder

    Home Office Voice – forget about it unless you like what I’ve done to it.

    But hey, I can’t tell a crazy Hart what to do with his crazy feed management, when I’m always tweaking my feed folders and still get snowed under. 🙂

  5. Nice blog. I will keep reading. Check out my blog for additional ideas.

    Personally, I have no idea why people would not understand how to do this.

  7. work Says:

    Personally, I am so glad to have found such an easy system that I can work
    at home effortlessly.
    I have been working at home for over 21 years, and finally this vehicle has
    come along and has changed my life for the better! It’s about time.
    …and I don’t have to Speak-2-no-1 …ever
