AnumHussain: Start-to-Finish Guide - How To Launch & Grow A Blog.

As opposed to many other folks making these recommends, she prioritizes talking face-to-face. No gaming the system here, just commonsense. Glad this sailed into my aggregator. Bookmarked, to pass to clients who say “I want to start a blog ...” without any knowledge of what is necessary to make it successful. It’ll save me an hour and a half in meetings, easily.

CNN Money: Andrew Sullivan - Blogging nearly killed me.

He described the grueling pace that he maintained along with a small editorial staff. ‘This is 40 posts a day - every 20 minutes, seven days a week,’ Sullivan said.” Try fifteen plus years, largely by your lonesome. As I’ve said before, if blogging is a chore, you might be in the wrong business.

It’s time, once again. Anyone had problems with the Yosemite upgrade?

Not so much interested in the upgrade *process*, but have you seen any app incompatibilities?  Particularly concerned about Adobe Creative Cloud, Coda 2, other programming bits and bobs. If you’ve run into any issues, I’d appreciate a comment. THANKS.

DP Review: Amazon launches unlimited cloud photo storage for $11.99 per year.

Oh, interesting.  For $11.99, they might be sorry I saw this (85,000+ RAW files and growing constantly).

Later: Terms of use ... “You may not use the Service to store, transfer or distribute content of or on behalf of third parties, to operate your own file storage application or service, to operate a photography business or other commercial service, or to resell any part of the Service.” Hmmm. I do photography professionally. Backing up to this wouldn’t be ‘operating a business’, but it is part of a business’s operations. Legalese. No matter how well written, you can drive a bus through verbiage.

SERoundtable: Google’s Mobile Friendly Algorithm Is Yes Or No - No Degrees Of Mobile Friendliness?

But as we mentioned earlier, there are over 200 different factors that determine ranking so we can’t just give you a yes or no answer with this. It depends on all the other attributes of your site, weather it is providing a great user experience or not. That is the same with desktop search, not isolated with mobile search.” In other words, Google is not going to divert the ‘bum-rush’ to get mobile-compatible, because it benefits themselves. But it may not be as critical as the knee-jerk folks are panicking over.

Guardian.UK: Mystery around Jeb Bush’s ‘unknown’ private email account.

Others reached Bush simply through the gencom account — writing to him on a range of issues from judicial appointments to the federal raid that captured the Cuban child Elian Gonzalez to state labor and literacy issues.” Color me unsurprised.

Butterick’s Practical Typography.: The billionaire’s typewriter.

... how does Medium improve the Internet? I haven’t seen a single story on Medium that couldn’t exist equally well elsewhere. Nor evidence that Medium’s editing and publishing tools are a manifest improvement over what you can do with other tools.”  Very well put. Merci, Ray L.

The Interstitial: From Fastmail Back to Google’s Gmail.

A note to politically-inclined readers ...

When “Can’t win” or “Shouldn’t win” candidates (IMHO) start making boneheaded comments, I am going to avoid identifying them by name. Why? As we see online, a negative link still brings PR value [increases name recognition, saturation, web/social traffic, etc.]. So if I feel the need to comment, I will do so obliquely ... in a way that cannot lift the gunnels of a political idiot’s boat.

[Thinking of a certain maroon today; I’ll simply go cruising past his proposing limitless money in politics.]
