Do you blog? Do you Twitter, Pownce or Jaiku? Do you read feeds? 12 ways to use facebook
(No, I don't twitter or even flickr, and I haven't registered yet. But I'm beginning to idly wonder...)

Is Facebook killing blogs?

Or has SNS ennui kicked in already?

"when it's perfect it's finite?"
No, I did not know that.
However my blog stats are completely google searches and have been for quite a few weeks.
(Did I just acknowledge that publicly?)

Face Book: Typhoon.

"Captain MacWhirr, of the steamer Nan-Shan, had a physiognomy that, in the order of material appearances, was the exact counterpart of his mind: it presented no marked characteristics of firmness or stupidity; it had no pronounced characteristics whatever; it was simply ordinary, irresponsive, and unruffled."

How do you get that info? The "what search terms were used" info I mean.

Genevieve, I think I was reading some similar comments around the place last year, about falling stats and Image searches.
I remember one post/thread in particular at Eye of the Goof.
Interesting comments there about the way blogging is changing, and possible causes. SNS cited, but perhaps the rise of FaceB has taken everyone by surprise?

T:Does Captain McWhirr have a b.log?
I'll check his profile for a blogspot I spose.

Juke: In my case, via Sitemeter stats.
I would be lost without that facility, as it's rainy day blog filler. Stand by...

I am proud of my ignorance about facebook and myspace. The next big thing I want to pownce upon will be served with a side of veggies.

So, if you don't read your stats then it's going to be sunny? is available.

I've found it's easy to be proud because you can't have a casual snoop without joining up to befriend and be friended.

(btw, when I was uploading the phys. pic, I thought BibliOd would have the perfect/finite image for face+book in the files)

How many friends does boyntonweather have?

Well, I'm going back to leaving my card (with the top left hand corner folded down, natch) with the doorman when I'm about my afternoon calls in my cabriolet with the preinstalled gramaphone.

Don't forget your avatar.

(Preinstalled gramaphone? Get with the program.)

Isn't it high time cars came with MP3 players installed? for us olds who like random music AND dashboard controls?

Agree with PK, absolutely. And yes, I am too proud 'n' lazy also to get involved.
Juke, Typepad also provides stats which show google search results and the terms used. It's depressing if you use a lot of song titles as blog headers though.
