Please Help Me. I need a blog. I am so busy and scattered, though. I post stuff all over the place, and I try to connect with folks with snippets. I think a blog would work for me, even in it got few hits. But since I am so busy, I don't have much time to learn detailed shortcuts, software, etc. I would like to find a place on the web where it is easy to post stuff in a cool layout, including of course links, pix, etc. Maybe with sidebars, contact info, etc. It would also be nice if it were within a community of bloggers. And maybe "Blog" is the wrong term, as it might be simply a personal web page. But a blog seems more interactive, and I want that. My interests are eclectic, but they include radical social, and personal, change. Will you please help me with ideas? Thanks! [more inside]

I am interested in developing three new blogs, all for business purposes. I have the business mind and the game plan, but don't have enough time to learn how to use systems like Movable Type or Word Press. Does anyone know where I can get some help?

I enjoy the often-derided NewsFilter type posts, epecially the comments and links provided in follow-up. These days, Canadian politics has become interesting, but I haven't found a spot on the web where ideas, information and links of MeFi caliber are posted on this subject.
Are there any Canadian politics oriented blogs or forums that are worthy?

It appears that Cheap Tickets is no longer the major sponsor of the weblog Gridskipper. While this may be due to many things (ie-content, low stats), do you foresee a future in which major blogs will regularly attract major sponsors to the extent that staff members could be hired, and millions could be made?

With the recent decision by kottke.org to be solely reader-supported, I'm curious to see how you value your reads.
Would you be willing to pay $30 a year for Metafilter? More? Less?
How about for some up-and-coming web magazines that operate on a daily basis, say The Morning News, The Black Table, etc.?
And how much for up-to-the-second pro blogs in the Gawker empire where advertising is used? Gawker? Gizmodo? Wonkette, etc?
How much for Boing Boing were it to be ad free?
How much for Fark?
How much for the individuals' blogs you frequent?
And for some Kottke.org fans who don't see $30 as a micropayment, how much would you be willing to pay for a year of his content?
Curious to see what range of dollar-value folks assign to their daily reads that are currently free to access. Please name and value other sites of your choosing.

What blogs do you read? I'm on the search for intelligent, thoughtful blogs like everyone's favorite, Metafilter. Sure, there's Fark
, and Linkswarm
to name a few, but these sites are a bit chaotic and, frankly, too big. The Fark I started reading years ago now has too many silly local stories--why are so many about dumb criminals?
I'm also not looking for personal blogs, but more community-based. Any suggestions?

Having recently installed MoveableType (after a LiveJournal migration from hell), I'm looking to personalize my blog. I can deal with web design for the templates, but I'm curious as to how people like this guy
get listening and reading lists on their index. Slaving over obscure plug-in sites isn't helping. Any suggestions?

Is there a free (some ads okay) online bloghosting service that allows you to categorize posts? For example, could I post something, categorize as "school," and then on the side of the page have a list of categories so I could click there and access those posts quickly?
seems to do it, but are not accepting new accounts presently. It seems to me that MovableType can do this, but I am awful at learning how to use such things properly.

After reading hundreds of blogs (Why, oh why?), I’ve come to the conclusion that a big number of the people who write about their own financial situation, explicitly or indirectly tell of how broke they are; Like Jim Anchower
, many describe low wages and bad jobs, job losses and unemployment, crashing bills, life in apartments with roommates who don’t care and having a hard time paying rents & bills, etc. I understand that the real median household income in 2003
was $43,318 (US), and I know that times are hard for most people. Still, is the average blogger poorer than the average person?

I'm a TypePad user, moving to Movable Type. I know that MT is much more powerful, but out of the (virtual) box, it is lacking in a lot of the cool features (book lists, photo albums, blogrolls) that TypePad has built in.
What's the best place for a n00b like me to go to start bringing MT into line with what I had in TypePad? I've been slogging through the MT Plugins site, but if there's an even easier guide out there, I'll gladly admit I'm an MT loser and just paint-by-numbers!
