Testing 1-2-3 [Jul. 7th, 2004|06:47 am]

Michael is being quite insistent that I learn to trackback. Obviously, he knows how completely helpless I am, because he put it all in Captain dummy talk just for my benefit.

Trackbacking is a very cool thing. Although I think Michael is operating under the delusion that people actually read this blog. I know better. Because if you were reading it, you would be posting comments, right? You wouldn't be able to help yourself, right? Because you wouldn't just, like, come here and read this stuff and leave without even saying hello, right? Right?

Anyway, thanks Michael for being so patient with me. Hope I get it right.

Your blog is wonderful to read; it's only lack of exposure that keeps you from getting oodles of comments.

I blogged for a solid month before figuring out two key tricks - one is participating on other people's blogs. If you say something amusing or interesting, they can click your name and end up here. Then they're hooked. The other was the use of trackbacks - if somebody else says something interesting, you can comment on *your* blog and trackback *their* blog, and again people will see your link and follow you back here.

And since I like your blog a lot, I was just trying to do my part to help. I didn't realize by trackbacks were partially broken though when I posted that. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't.

Captain Dummy? :P

I found a better trackback site; Courtney / Spritz was able to get this one to work.

Try this site: http://kalsey.com/tools/trackback/

Well, I tried it again, so we'll see what happens. I hope I didn't accidentally ping myself. Would that hurt?

BTW, if you watched Firefly, you'd know all about Captain Dummy talk.
