      Posting these cat-cartoons-without-the-cartoon was a long journey that I don’t know if I’ll repeat soon again. A daily blog is tough … even when you have your material handed to you! But, I couldn’t have done it without the artwork … Continue reading →

      Father Time is riding out his last few minutes of being the temporal keeper for 2011; he sits in an easy chair with a calendar showing “Dec 31” behind him and a grandfather clock pointing to the time of 11:53. … Continue reading →

About Blog This

Posted by joeabbott on March 2, 2014

What’s a “blog this” entry? Well, it’s a small post of what I think is a reasonably interesting item of news I fell upon while digging around the Internet.

I run a regular meeting at work and I’d start each meeting with a little cartoon of funny image that I found on some general entertainment site. I found these kept people a bit quieter as we waited for a quorum and gave folks something to chat socially about… it was a nice item. As I ran through the Web looking for clever entries, I would save more interesting tidbits to read later… less along the lines of funny images, more along the lines of useful or diverting information. And I’d save them by sending them to my home email address under the subject “blog this”.

So was born Blog This™.

And while sharing with all of you is nice, I actually started the process so I’d have a place to go to remember some of the cool stuff I’d found! By having a blog post on a searchable site, things I remembered seeing without perfect recollection were a simple few clicks away.

To find any past Blog This entry, just search my posts for those words and look at items containing that title. I’ve used the keyword “trivia” on each of them to help a bit further.
