Please do not give me an idea that CDB is anything of importance. To the 4 of so nice people who have written nice emails asking me to blog about their nice websites… well thanks but I don’t blog requests. I may look at them but I blog whatever I feel like.

Please let me know about interesting web sites etc but don’t expect me to pitch ’em. Stuff like this goes to my head and I am best kept humble, far down the long tail beyond the D listers.

There I now have a policy– I don’t blog requests.

If this kind of stuff has any value, please support me monthly on Patreon or a one time PayPal kibble toss
Profile Picture for Alan Levine aka CogDog
An early 90s builder of the web and blogging Alan Levine barks at on web storytelling (#ds106 #4life), photography, bending WordPress, and serendipity in the infinite internet river. He thinks it's weird to write about himself in the third person.


  1. This is solid policy, blogging requests assumes that these spaces are purely PR machines. And while I use mine for that regularly, it’s driven only by my excitement surrounding specific thing, not some calculated idea of linking become someone requests it. Where is the conversation in that? I mean, come on, a trackback with some thought will get me far more excited than an email with a plea.
