neonvincent: For posts about cats and activities involving uniforms. (Krosp)
I've decided to come back to both journaling platforms, if only to reblog some of my more fannish or personal entries over at Crazy Eddie's Motie News.  I get a lot of page views over there that I can track for free, unlike having to pay here, whether "here" is DW or LJ, for the ability.  However, I just don't get the feed back there that I get here.  Both DW and LJ have a livelier commenting culture, and I definitely have more friends on LJ than I have followers on Blogger/Blogspot.  So, here I am.  Besides, I miss those of you who aren't on either Facebook or Google Plus.

I've been writing about how Tea Partiers are screwing up efforts at sustainable development both nationally and here in Michigan over at Crazy Eddie's Motie News, my sustainability blog on Blogspot. Here are the posts on this topic for the last month.

More paranoia about Agenda 21

The Atlantic on Tea Partiers disrupting planning commissions because of Agenda 21

Troy Mayor Janice Daniels shows how to be vulnerable to a scandal

Mayor Daniels, founder of the Troy Tea Party, is someone well worth watching and my friend Sharon at Keep Troy Strong is doing that full time. I highly recommend you check out her continuing coverage.

On August 1st, I made the following promise on Dreamwidth.
That concludes this irregular status update. Next one whenever I pass 500 on Twitter, 450 on Facebook, 150 on Daily Kos or LiveJournal, 50 on Dreamwidth, or 25 on any of the other services, whichever comes first. If it's Crazy Eddie's Motie News passing 25, I'll crosspost it there, too.
As you can tell both from the bolding and that you're either reading it on Crazy Eddie's Motie News or you're seeing the "crossposted to Crazy Eddie's Motie News" notice while reading it on Dreamwidth or LiveJournal, my Blogspot/Blogger followers hit 25. I'm actually a bit late, as the event happened late last week (thank you John Henry for being the 25th follower), but I had a good excuse--it's final exam time. Notice that my posting rate slowed down early this week, as I was grading. Final exams are now graded, so it's time to post the next update.

Twitter: 478
Facebook: 423 (was as high as 424)
Daily Kos: 140 (still down from 141)
LiveJournal: 124
(down from 125, although the person who defriended me is now subscribed to me on Dreamwidth)
Huffington Post: 107 fans and 106 friends
(I've had this account for a while, but never got around to including it until now)
Dreamwidth: 41
Crazy Eddie's Motie News: 25
YouTube: 18 friends and 12 subscribers
(I could have more, but I'm not impressed by the people who try to friend me on YouTube)
Journalfen: 8 (no movement for months here)
Google+: 5 (New!)
Flickr: 1
Posterous: 1

Now I'm wondering if I should get a Tumblr account. The coolest kids seem to be on that service.

That concludes this irregular update. Next one whenever I pass 500 on Twitter, 450 on Facebook, 150 on Daily Kos or LiveJournal, 50 on Dreamwidth or Blogspot/Blogger, or 25 on any of the other services, whichever comes first.

I know this doesn't fit the theme of sustainability in Detroit. It does fit the Nablopomo theme of Fiction and the listing of this blog under politics on the Nablopomo blogroll. Besides, I see the Tea Partiers as obstacles to achieving sustainability. so it's not as off-topic as one might first think.

Open Book


First, the e-book version of her book says it's a work of fiction, hence the Nablopomo badge. )

As you can tell from the bolding, I passed two milestones.  The 125 on LJ happened sometime in July, while the 450 on Twitter happened on Friday.  Time for another update!

Twitter: 453
Facebook: 411 (was as high as 412)
Daily Kos: 140 (down from 141--time to write more interesting diaries!)
Livejournal: 125
Dreamwidth: 40 (the DDoS on LJ really drove this number up)
YouTube: 15 friends and 11 subscribers (I could have more, but I'm not impressed by the people who try to friend me on YouTube)
Crazy Eddie's Motie News: 22

In addition to my posts about the travails of Julie Bass here on Crazy Eddie's Motie News, I've been blogging about it elsewhere, beginning with posts to my Dreamwidth and my LiveJournal. I've also posted it to ontd_political on Dreamwidth, unfunnybusiness on JournalFen, and peakoil_prep and ontd_political twice on LiveJournal. The results have been very satisfying.

For starters, those posts have received lots of comments. The winner so far has been the first post on ontd_political on LJ, Michigan Woman could go to jail for planting vegetable garden, which prompted 126 comments. Next is the unfunnybusiness post, Woman in Oak Park, Michigan, could go to jail up to 93 days for planting a garden, with 39 comments. The followup to ontd_political, Update: Michigan woman no longer going to jail for her garden but now in trouble for her dogs, has 21 comments and counting. The mirrored posts on my LJ currently have nine comments and their counterparts on Dreamwidth have six. In contrast, I have a grand total of eight comments on the same posts so far here on Crazy Eddie's Motie News.

This mirrors the situation with the rest of the Swim posts here on Crazy Eddie's Motie News, which have a grand total of three comments on the non-Julie Bass posts, two on the five posts about Kunstler and one on the post about Elaine Meinel Supkis, two once I respond. In contrast, the LiveJournal mirror of James Howard Kunstler swims against the stream on gender role equality, too alone received 13 comments, which I pointed out in Follow up to women in Kunstler's fiction. Honestly, I'd like more comments. I could even deal with a couple of trolls, as I'm not above trolling my own comments sections.

On the other hand, I have been getting readers from the signal boosting posts, with 108 views from JournalFen and 69 from ontd_political on LJ during the past week, handily beating out what I'm getting from Facebook, just 16 referrals. Even the hits coming from my own LJ, nine so far this week, are beating out what came in from Twitter, which is not even in the top ten sources. Facebook and Twitter may be the big boys on the blog, but they aren't the traffic drivers people think they are. Google, on the other hand, is my friend, with 176 hits. The big winner turns out to be Julie's own blog, which referred 296 readers in one week. Thank you, all of you coming here from Oak Park Hates Veggies!

Just the same, I've had nine days in a row and 11 days out of the last 12 with more than 100 hits, so I have no room to complain. On that note, welcome new readers, and keep the page views coming!

Speaking of signal boosting, above originally posted to Crazy Eddie's Motie News.

The following arrived in my email last night.
Hi bloggers,

July's theme for daily blogging: SWIM. Hopefully the Southern Hemisphere will forgive the Northern Hemisphere for having swimming on the brain. But it's more than just pools -- when things are going well, we say they're going swimmingly. We can sink or swim. And of course there are always bloggers swimming against the stream. I think it's a theme everyone can dive into.

As always, bloggers planning on posting every day in July who would like to be on the blogroll can go here and follow the directions at the top of the page. The "official" July badge is here, but please feel free to create your own and add it to the comments there for others to share.
Of course I'm participating. The only question is which blog to submit to the blogroll. I don't have to decide right away. As the instructions at the top of the July blogroll state, "The July blogroll is open until July 4th." I'll probably post to both my Dreamwidth/LiveJournal and Crazy Eddie's Motie News on Blogspot and see how I feel about each on the 4th. Either would work, but I never get worn out from blogging on LJ. I do get burned out knowing I have to blog daily on my Blogspot. Based on that alone, I should probably use my LJ. Since I'm a procrastinator, I'm still waiting until the 4th to decide.

It turns out that it took less than a day, as just happened late this afternoon, when @dkmich (Kid Oakland on Daily Kos and someone who lives in the same county I do), followed me back. I now have 406 Twitter followers to 405 Facebook friends. That means it's time for another update.

Rest of report follows.

Twitter: 406
Facebook: 405

Next one whenever I pass 450 on Facebook or Twitter, 150 on Daily Kos, 125 on LiveJournal, 50 on Dreamwidth, or 25 on any of the other services, whichever comes first. Time to start posting on Daily Kos. I might be able to get nine more followers there before the end of the month.

No one bet, but they should have bet on the 400 followers on Twitter, because that happened yesterday. I now have 401.

In other news, my wife installed the latest edition of Firefox on this computer.  I'm much happier already than with Internet Explorer 9.  That program was relatively stable for Exploder, but it was  s o  s l o w.

Last week, I passed 400 friends on Facebook, which reminds me that it's time to give a social media status update to see how many fans I have. As of the last time I posted one on March 4, I had the following:
Previous status update behind the cut. )

Now, I have these numbers.

Facebook: 404
Twitter: 383
(My Twitter follwership is likely to exceed my Facebook friends list this year).
Daily Kos: 140
(I have to blog there more often than once a week to get good growth in numbers. Still, it's growing faster than LJ).
Livejournal: 123, 121 of which are mutual friends
(it used to be 124, but two people deleted their accounts while people I know from USENET and Facebook friended me. However, I really haven't lost them. One of them is subscribed to me on Dreamwidth while another has me friended on JournalFen. Another person who deleted their LJ account is one of my Facebook friends. This is in addition to the person who unfriended me on LJ but subscribed to me on Dreamwidth. I really could make a claim that 126 people who were my mutual friends on LJ still are in my circle somewhere online).
Dreamwidth: 28
YouTube: 11 subscribers and 12 friends
(I still haven't uploaded videos there).
Crazy Eddie's Motie News: 11
(I didn't even have this blog the last status update).
Journalfen: 8
(No movement since May. No surprise, as I hardly ever post in my own journal there).
Flickr: 1
(I do upload photos there, but no one seems to be paying any attention).

That concludes this irregular status update. Next one whenever I pass 450 on Facebook, 400 on Twitter, 150 on Daily Kos or LiveJournal, 50 on Dreamwidth, or 25 on any of the other services, whichever comes first. Any bets on which one it will be?
