My Blog, my blog, my blog, my blog...

(To be sung to the tune of "My Humps" by the Black Eyed Peas' Fergie...)

I had just read over Frances Dinkelspiel's blog and noticed she had a counter. I clicked and checked it out, then loaded it on my site using the SiteMeter utility.

I already am feeling a bit of the blog addiction. Now there are toys, too?...

Then that next morning an article ran in the NY Times titled "Some Bling for Your Blog.".

And I had this interesting moment. If I had just did something that was then being reported in the New York Times, was I behind-the-Times (so to speak), with them or what?

"According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project, about 12 million Americans now maintain a blog. Widgets are elements, often in the left or right columns of a blog, that enhance its usefulness or aesthetic appeal. (The term “widgets,” confusingly, can also refer to compact applications that operate on a computer’s desktop.)"
