    I don't think I'd use one, but not a bad idea.

    I don't know if i would blog - it would be interesting to read in others, but i can barely remember to write in my own regular journal

    A long, long time ago, I used to maintain a personal Web site. I stopped maintaining it several years ago; updating it became a hassle. However, it's something I miss.

    I like the idea of blogging, and I checked out several software packages with the intent of having a blog feature on Cyburbia. I narrowed it down to Moveable Type and pMachine; I picked pMachine because it's more user-friendly, accomodates easy user customization, and it allows the creation of blog communities similar to what you see on Live Journal.

    Since we're on the issue of things we want....I've been meaning to bring this up.

    Any room on the Cyburbia server for a "Plan O' Da Week" ??

    We take turns scanning in a job we're reviewing/working on, get some input ideas, share with one another, see what development in Canada looks like....???

    What can and can't we post on the blog?

    I may be interested as my original blog has not been updated in a long long time.

    Yeah, sure, why not?

    It imagine it will come as no surprise to anyone that someone in another forum once suggested I try blogging. It was his nice way of asking me to Shut Up and quit telling "my life story" there. So, sure. Sign me up. God knows "I live For Attention". :-P B-)

    Sorry, but the blog offer was long, long ago I may set up some Forum space for blogging, but since there wasn't much of an early interest in a Cyburbia blogging system a year ago, I sort of let things go.
