I spend entirely too much time messing around with this stupid blog--changing settings, adding pointless crap, etc. A few weeks ago, I took a bunch of time to add the little Twitter widget to the right sidebar. The thought was that I could have a place for Manifesto readers to see the dumb status updates that I put on Twitter and Facebook. Then I realized it was just posting my same blog posts. Blarg! (Or, as Paige would say, Darg!) So I've wasted some time getting it fixed. (If you're reading this in Google Reader, you can add www.twitter.com/manifesto_slc to your feed. If you dare. Ah, wah, hah, hah.)
I'm still not sure why I blog. I believe it's always had something to do with keeping a journal-ish story of my life. But I doubt that when I'm 80 I'm really going to care to read all of my old record reviews. So the little Twitter feed will allow me to post links and songs and generally unimportant stuff that I likely won't feel bad if I don't print off and shove in a book for posterity's sake. And it will allow me a place to write Traci's snarky comments as we watch The Hills together (though, since the laptop is breathing its last breath, I don't know that I'll generally be typing while watching TV. Oh, the humanity.)
So, anyhoo, on the banality.
