Which blog has more completely outlived its mandate: The Weblog or Unfogged?

  1. i don’t know FB doesn’t want my updates
    i like my new GI style laundry bag, looks neat and jyoubu, wanted to buy a laundry basket then thought that the springs will come out eventually and be a source of frustration

  2. I would count read(1) as one vote for the Weblog.

  3. The problem is that it’s not clear where I should start hanging out if all the blogs have outlived their mandates. I told my adviser I’d start writing some of the easier parts of my thesis a couple weeks ago; I sure hope it doesn’t come to my actually having to do that. Perhaps I’ll have to start learning to read Italian. But what good will Italian do me? I believe I’ve already confessed here that I’m not bright enough to get what Fellini’s films are all about.

  4. ooh, thank you, Jms, it’s so nice to know that you are welcome here:), here i enjoy TH and FCs b/c my comments could be all then about me, if i’d do the same somewhere else it would, i think, just frustrate people, i’m not much interested in politics and other serious stuff it seems, though if people are interested i too of course have some thoughts on all things current
    but i skim U sometimes and use its comments window to comment elsewhere, it’s convenient with html, but comments i don’t follow anymore and i’m not compelled anymore to participate
    i post regularly at FB though where many people on my friends list are from U, so, life is combination

  5. I’m not familiar enough with Weblog Classic to know what its mandate was. What was Unfogged’s mandate? To be a blog by Unf and Ogged? Because the horse left that barn a while ago.

    I’m uncertain what FB stands for.

  6. Facebook.

    Unfogged continued fulfilling its mandate even after Unf left, I think, because of the contributions of Fontana Labs.

    I’m still pining for The H Is O, myself.

  7. It took me a while to identify unfogged’s mandate.
