Metroblog

A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Refurbishing the Blog

Having decided to try blogging again, the first step was to look hard at the ol' metrotemplate. Not looking too spiffy. Needs a coat o' paint, for starters.

But there are more important issues: For starters, the gaping holes in the blogroll. Frontier Editor appears to have disappeared, Canadian Cynic got tired of the endless inflatable-bozo-boxing that is critiquing conservativism in the modern North American political landscape, etc, etc, ad nauseam.

So I need to rebuild. And if you're reading this, I'd like to hear from you: What are your indispensible must-reads online? Not just blogs, though I'm happy to learn about them, but any sites at all. What's the first site you hit in the morning while the coffee's brewing? The last one you have to see before you can sleep at night?

In other news, I'm also noticing that I don't write the way I used to. I don't feel as clever, the words don't turn in my hands and mind and line themselves up as easily.

Rust is a bitch.

But if the corrosion doesn't run too deep, I think I should be able to loosen up in a while. Maybe a year will do it.

Oh, i won't take anything near as long as a year! A month, maybe, if you write a paragraph every day. One paragraph. Describe the shadows near your building. Describe the sounds and smells you encounter. Describe the thoughts of the old man walking towards you on the sidewalk. You'll be delighted at how quickly it all comes back.

My must-hit every morning is PopURLS. Hundreds of links to interesting articles, without the clickbaiting "this will make you cry" and "you'll scream" and "you won't believe your eyes" fucking bullshit headlines.
