My week of no blog and commenting elsewhere has passed, although with most of the week being travel and NMC meetings and then fun at Mardi Gras, I really did not get out as much and spread the comment love.
It’s a bit of a gimmicky thing; I find it useful on this yearly timeline to do the number crunching and look at the comment stats here, but really, the commenting elsewhere ought to be a regular activity, not a once a year special.
The tracking by co-comment is spotty at best; it does not come up automatically on flickr like it did last year (where I do a lot of commenting), it barfed on the comment fields on the NMC drupal site, and of course, it did not pick up on comments I made via my iPhone. And seeing co-comment load on every fracking web page says to me it is throwing dead weight on my browsing bandwidth.
I thought about extending it another week (more travel coming up), but I cannot sit by so quietly while the Reverend is pounding out 6 packs of posts every day.
So the blog light is now officially “on”…
