Blogging Openly Open Trackbacks

Posted by Adam Graham in : Open Trackbacks

I was thinking earlier in the week and I believe of all the Idaho bloggers out there, I’m perhaps the most open in my blogging. Some, like Chris at LiberalIdaho or Binky Boy at 43rd State Blues don’t even have their picture up.

At the same time, while here at at Adam’s Blog, I’m blazing the trail of podcasting and Video Blogging. I haven’t told people about my shoe size (13W.) Oops, that cat’s out of the bag. While there are some things that will remain off the blog for obvious reasons. But readers can rest assured that they’re reading the most open blog in Idaho.

Now, onto the Party. First, the rules:

1) Post about anything that’s in good taste. No porn, no spam, no profanity.
2) Send me a trackback of any tasteful post you want and as soon as I check my blog, I’ll update this post with your link provided you link back to this thread. If your software won’t allow you to send trackbacks, just use the Wizbang Standalone Pinger
3) Deadline is Wednesday at 11:00 PM MT. Further trackbacks won’t be posted after that time.

For your convenience here’s today’s link and the trackback:


Below are other great parties:

Cascading style sheets (CSS) can be simple, complex, convoluted beyond belief. While CSS is the backbone of modern web design, it’s not fully understood by a lot of people using it. I constantly see CSS with significantly more code than is necess…
