The Day That Blogger Died
So let's go over what happened during the Grandma blackout of 2005.
The Washington Post Q&A went well! We had a tight little forum going for the hour that produced some questions that enabled Grandma to further her propaganda and for me to make public my poor spelling skills. The transcripts can be found... here.
We were in Slashdot again!! ...Right before Blogger passed away. It's all good though, the reason of the post was the article in WaPo, so they took most of the traffic. More folks were able to read about Grandma, and that's what counts- not my obsession with making a symmetrical looking graph in our Statcounter spreadsheets. Seeing Grandma in Slashdot is no less exciting each time it happens. Grandma loves you, /.
Dan Hsu has been paying attention! He linked to our post about Grandma's appearance in his blog, on which I commented, and am posting about now, thus creating a crazy circle of trackbacks that needs a flowchart and a study sheet to truly appreciate. Thanks Dan! ...Then Blogger tore a hole in the space-time continuum, compressing the blog into the event horizon, meeting face to face with the internet before Grandma's appearance in June. Those who witnessed this cosmic phenomenon were met with the past version of the blog- an empty entity of nothingness.
We have achieved the honor of reaching the Recommended List over at The Escapist's newest feature- The Lounge, and that's a hell of a recommendation. Thanks, Escapist! The Lounge is The Escapist's official blog, so you get to leave feedback on their articles, bullshit with their contributors, and just generally hang out. Hence the name. You get the idea :)
Grandma had a terrific write up over at Beyond The Camera's Lens, which is THE fansite for the Fatal Frame series. They love Fatal Frame, Grandma loves Fatal Frame, I love Fatal Frame- we all groove together in the end. The site has forums and lots of info on the series and its creators; these cats know what they're doing, so it's quite cool for Grandma to be mentioned in their ranks.
We have more posts coming for everyone later today, and, as promised- Ask Grandma Hardcore, plus BIG HUGE NEWS THAT'S.... BIG. (Not a teaser, we'll know for sure if what we think is going down is in fact going down this afternoon.)
