In which I recommend some Texan bloggers

The essay What Happened To My Parents? had me in stitches this morning. The about page is excellent, too. This guy has a nice, sharp site – clean graphics, easy to navigate, good writing. I want to call it “crisp” for some reason. The druzblog just feels like Maine. I like.

I also came across Out of Range. I love the design. It’s very soothing. He has some cool functionality that I’ll likely be trying to steal soon.

I think I clicked to him via Leia‘s comment system, or maybe from Karen Lucci‘s site, but I can’t remember for sure. The Texas blogging community seems to be very close – they have happy hours and all know each other. I think that’s pretty cool.

Friendly note to single-author blogs: There’s no need to place your name after every post!

  1. That name thing drives me crazy too. Hi – already know who you are.

  2. “There’s no need to place your name after every post! ” Why not – I’m one of the few people who can spell it right!!!!! ;¬D

  3. Not all of us are accomplished enough to figure out how to NOT place our names after every post. 😛 so there. If you don’t like it, don’t read it. Problem solved.

I'll never share your email address and it won't be published.

What Is This? is the personal weblog of me, David Vincent Gagne. I've been publishing here since 1999, which makes this one of the oldest continuously-updated websites on the Internet.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
