What the hell should I do with this blog?
It's like this: A couple months or so ago, I started getting back into politics here and there in my posts. That was great and all, but now I've got this Pandagon thing and my inclination is to leave the silly and/or personal stuff here, save the issues stuff for there.
But then the Edwards thing blew up, and I'm realizing, I'm not going to be able to play it that way, after all. Anyone I piss off at Pandagon is just going to follow me here.
On top of that, I have legacy trolls already--people who are pissed off that I don't agree with them so much anymore. I have never quite figured out why that's so enraging to some people, but clearly, it is. I guess everyone needs a hobby. What that means for me is, I need better bannination capabilities. I'm just not willing to put up with someone, some hypothetical troll, some imaginary skunk who could be named anything, perhaps even "Marlene Dick," or "Seth Weaver," leaving her tapeworm-segment-studded skid marks all over the comments just because OH HEAVENS, I'M A COMMUNIST NOW.
Do you know what I had for breakfast this morning, by the way? Poached embryos on English muffins. They were delicious. Next time I'm going to try them in a little hollandaise, which I will also make, naturally, out of human embryos.
Where was I?
Right! See, with Blogger, I can either manually delete trolling comments after they've already appeared (and usually, thanks to my wack schedule, after they've already been responded to by a few of y'all--thanks for that, btw), or I can put EVERYONE on moderation. You know how I feel about that last option.
So I said a long, long time ago I planned to use Blogger only temporarily, but, you know, I'm lazy, and then the Blogger beta came out and I kind of liked it, and again, I can't say it often enough, I'm lazy. But I'm thinking now's the time to get off my ass and go shopping for hosting plans. I'm getting pretty fond of that Wordpress from using it at Feministe and Pandagon.
If I do that, though, no more eponymous blog--"Ilyka Damen" has outlived its usefulness, though not its stupidity (never, never that). I would like, if she'd be cool with this, something collaborative with Genni. You know what? She's the artist. I should ask HER to name it, right?
My goodness, I'm an idiot.
So that's what I'm thinking, I guess. Tentatively, you know, how I do.
Any suggestions? Complaints? Ideas? Shoulder shrugs?
