This one has been posted at We Blog Cartoons for free re-use on your blog. Yes, I know, it is geeky and a bit similar to another one I have done. It was inspired by Robert Scoble talking about deleting all his feeds.

Blogging news just in

Chris at The Geek Times has 10 reasons your business should not blog. A good rant. The Guardian has BBC unveils radical revamp of website. It will have blogs apparently. Meanwhile at Wibsite.com all is not well. We’ve got major database problems and the web host won’t fix them. All in all the only solution…

My new site: We Blog Cartoons

My new site: We Blog Cartoons

My new website is now up and running. It is called ‘We Blog Cartoons‘. The basic idea is that it consists of cartoons that can be freely posted on people’s blogs by cutting and pasting some code (or by more technical means if people want to). The cartoons contained therein will be my non church-related…

Reviews

Of this blog GIGA.DE – How to: Wie baue ich einen Weblog? I’ve had to translate this using Google: Here a small list of the Blogs, which I read actually daily and thus calm conscience can recommend: Cartoon Church in irregular distances describes current topics in Cartoon form to Cartoonist Dave Walker. Goettlich! Myrant: this…

Newspaper blogs

Sundry observations The Guardian has launched a new blog entitled ‘Comment is free‘. It looks a bit more like a newspaper website than a blog though. That might be something to do with the fact that only the titles and descriptions are shown on the front page. But it’s good that the articles can be…

How to write a blog

How to write a blog

Cartoon Blog reader Tiffer has asked me how to start a blog. In particular good ways to blog cheaply and without a lot of technical knowhow. So here goes. There are a number of ‘platforms’ (technical name for something you can stand up and talk on) one can use. Here are some I have used…

Blog rankings

How unimportant they are etc Obviously rankings in blog charts don’t really matter and are entirely unimportant. In this post I will be looking at some of the charts that exist and demonstrating by my non-interest in them how I have no desire to be included amongst their lofty ranks. I was semi-interested to see…

Ouch

Tom Allen posts a stinging attack on the Church Times and Simon Sarmiento’s web column in particular. I can’t help think that ‘comically inept’ is a little harsh, not least because Simon publishes what is probably the most well read Anglican blog in the UK*. I think I’m reading a different Church Times too (no…

Clergy bloggers

Simon Sarmiento’s internet article in todays Church Times is on the subject of clerical bloggers. He’s set up a couple of special Church Times demonstration blogs to show clergy how easy it is. The clergy blogs featured in the column are: Maggi Dawn Paul Roberts Simon Says Richard Frank GadgetVicar Kelvin Holdsworth Rt Revd David…

Internet cartoonists and the ‘brrreeeport’

Top blogulatory commentator Robert Scoble started an experiment to test which search engines are the best at finding new content on blogs. You can read all about it here. The basic idea was that bloggers were asked to incorporate the odd and previously unused term ‘brrreeeport’ into a blog post and the number of times…

Take the dreariness out of making links

Dear Bloggers of the world, Do you ever get bogged down by the tiresome chore that is writing the code for links in your blog posts? I know I do. Yes, I know, these days you can click little whathaveyous on your blog dashboard to speed things up, but you can’t deny it’s still a…

The Methodists are blogging

A new blog for Methodists (A ‘Methodist blog‘ if you will) has been set up. It is called theConnexion.net, and is a place for British Methodists to gather on the internet. A bit like an after-church coffee time. Do Methodists have after church coffee? I suspect they do. Ministerial blogging stalwarts Richard Hall and Dave…

10 reasons to not nominate me for the Bloggies

The Weblog awards known as the Bloggies are currently accepting nominations. Until Tuesday I think. These are ten of the categories you should not nominate me for because I really do not deserve them: Best Australian or New Zealand Weblog Because I do not live there. Darren the Problogger does though. Best British or Irish…

Squidoo

During my lunchbreak today I made what is known as a ‘lens’ on a new site called Squidoo. It’s here if you want to see it. A ‘lens’, as far as I have gathered up to this point, is a webpage about some topic of interest to the person writing it. The idea is that…

Organising a blogroll

A blogroll is, for those unfamiliar with the term, a list of links that one puts in the sidebar of a blog so that readers can ignore them. As you will notice I do not have such a thing, but it is about time I did. The problem is that a great big long list…

Are blogs bad for cartoonists?

I came across this article in the Gwinnett Daily Post, a newspaper that I must confess seldom receives attention in these blog pages. The report talks about the decline of newspapers in America and why, even in the age of the blog newspapers are still vital: A so-called “victory” for the blogosphere vis-a-vis declining newspaper…
