Robert hits on a good point on the Naked Conversations blog (yikes! I was just about to call it the Naked Couch).
Two years ago, when one of the conferences were being set up to talk about blogging, I posted about why I thought blogging was the perfect way to cut down on conferencing. Ted Roche immediately whacked me over the head on that.
And in reading Robert's post, I can certainly agree. I missed out on DevCon this year due to some family issues and home life makes it difficult to travel (try finding a good home-sitter for 2 sick dogs) - for that reason I generally don't get out much.
But I would certainly hope people don't see the blog as a one-dimensional view of me. There's the FoxShow, OttawaPodcasts, my other news blog and more. But I also listened to Julie Leung's talk at Gnomedex and appreciate that too - there must be a separation. I have some public personal , blogs, some business blogs, and I also have some private ones.
But I do like the idea of photoblogs and moblogs - I love that Blogger now offers it - I wish they could extend it to the entire North American area.
You can also choose to participate in a network - I'm on TechPodcasts.com
You may also choose to take a page out of Lloyd's book and do sound seeing tours.
But for right now, my easiest way to talk to me directly is via email, blogs or Skype (akselsoft).
