More and more, blogging feels like speaking into an unplugged mic. Which is why I and countless others who used to love it and do it religiously have either stopped altogether or seem to be winding down. Back in the day, blogging was about words. You wrote from the heart–or from wherever–clicked “publish” and that was […]
The Saddest, Best Commentary on How Blogging Has Changed
Ah, summer–why you so busy? I relish summer because I am NOT a cold weather person and generally spend December through April pretty much in hibernation, but the speed with which summer weeks seem to speed by is kind of depressing in its own right. I feel like I haven’t had time to catch a […]
Bye Squarespace–Mizz Information Has Moved
Long story short….Mizz Information has moved (again). This site isn’t going anywhere (for now) but new Mizz Information posts will be going on MizzInformation.com. I hope to see you over there! If you subscribe via email, you should still get new posts, but if you subscribe in a reader, you’ll need to update the feed […]
Goodbye Squarespace–Welcome to Mizz Information 3.0
I know all of you have spent the beginning of your summer obsessing over Squarespace’s shortfalls and building new websites in WordPress, because…summer, right? Well, sadly, I’m nerdy like that so that’s exactly what I have spent a decent chunk of my summer doing so far. I’ve blogged before about Squarespace and some of my […]
More Thoughts on Where Blogging Can Take You
Last week, I started a post that I thought was going to be about how to use Windows on a Chromebook (notice the title on the post) but turned out to be just sort of a ramble about blogging and blog burnout and a post I figured nobody would read. Then friend Deirdre Reid left a […]
Where Can Blogging Take You?
Long time, no see, Mizz Information readers! Another year, another bout of blog burnout…what else is new, right? I wrote that post in 2011 and this one just a few months ago, and, I’d imagine, if I’m still blogging a year or five years from now, I’ll continue to grapple with blogging just as others […]
Digital Cleanup Plan for a Fresh New Year
Here we are again at the end of another year. While this year has been a great one in some ways, overall I can’t say I’m sad to say goodbye to 2014. Suffice it to say that it will go down in my personal history as the year I learned some sad truths about people […]
Is Removing Blog Comments The New Black?
Over the past few months, I’ve started noticing, if not a trend, a sort-of trend: blogs shutting down comments. While I’m sure there have been many other instances of this happening, the first I really noticed was Popular Science last September. The move was controversial and got them a ton of coverage in both the […]
Introducing Chic n’ Geek
I am trying to be better about unplugging when I’m not at work, both because my aging eyes are killing lately and also because I know it’s good for me. So what did I do this weekend? Decide I needed to start a new blog, complete with learning how to install and set up a […]
Guest Posts on Mizz Information?
Ever since I added a contact form to my website, I’ve started getting inquiries about whether or not I accept guest posts. I don’t know whether to be flattered or just confused–I guess both. If they actually read this blog they’d know that I blog because I love writing–period. Not for money–I tried that. Luckily […]
