Hello World!

After blogging fairly regularly on another site for nearly five years, I never really thought I’d ever start over…  But that’s exactly what I’ve decided to do.  You see, a few weeks ago Blogger announced that they will no longer be supporting FTP publishing after March 26, 2010.  My blog utilized Blogger’s FTP publishing, which means that I’d have to do a major redesign, use their “site migration” tool, or just give up.  After some thought, I’ve decided to give up and start anew … welcome to Cocky & Rude.

So what do you write in your first blog post?  It’s been a long time since I wrote a ‘first post,’ so I googled that question, and here’s what I found:

1. Ask a question

2. Share an anecdote or quote

3. Invoke the Mind’s Eye

4. Use an Analogy, Metaphor or Simile

5. Cite a Shocking Statistic

That all sounds quite wonderful.  Please pretend that I did that, now let’s get on with the show.

One thought on “Hello World!”

  1. Well, C&Rmy, now that Adam has supposedly posted his swan song, he closed off all comments to the thread. Where’s the sport in that?

    So, I thought we should pick some other post from the blog to hang out and chat as we munch our popcorn and await the millennium. Or whatevs. What better than the very first C&R post, from back in the day when Craig still was a blogger.
