The Blogstigator, two parts investigator, three parts instigator, wants to be your mischievous and only vaguely sinister metablogpanion. When he isn't busy being a blog-troll, he lives in an unused Google memory cache where out-of-date search results go for spa weekends. He can be contacted via e-mail.

lovers' roundup

“Would You Date Someone Who Doesn't Have a Blog?”

“Technorati Adds Authority Slider” (whatever that means)

That's about it for today, kids. The Blogstigator's getting laid.

final roundup

Note to self: If the Blogstigator wants to be President one day, he shouldn't blog like this.

Gawker never humored Perez Hilton with a reply, so maybe I'll be getting some sleep tonight instead of worrying about Manhattan imploding in a Godzilla v. Mothra style superbattle...not that I'd mind said implosion. (Chartreuse noticed that the Blog Herald pulled their coverage, but they're crying server problem.)

Michelle Malkin appears to be on a vendetta against art! (One of these days I will need to find someone new to pick on, but this is the final roundup, so maybe tomorrow.)

america deblogged,...or not

Via thie Media Buyer Planner article, a Gallup poll is claiming that only “one in five Web users read Web-logs, or ‘blogs,’ either frequently or occasionally.” But honestly, with his Firefox RSS subscription button popping up at the sight of nearly any page on the net these days, the Blogstigator wonders how all those people actually avoid reading blogs. Obviously this means that a lot of web users don't know a blog when they see it, but maybe this intuition is more correct. After all, is CNN really a blog?

is it voyeurism? or just a blog?

Techdirt notes the growing trend of reporters using information people post about themselves online, be it a blog, a photo album, or an online profile:

While some think it adds a "human element" to some of the drama, others find it a bit voyeuristic. They're probably both right.

Maybe, or, as the Blogstigator muses, this is just what happens when lazy journalists join forces with exhibitionists.

new york magazine and all those blogs

New York Magazine is running a gamut of stories on the state of the blogosphere. A few too many numbers for the Blogstigator's liking, but he did enjoy the juicy Elizabeth Spiers interview.

What I really want to know is if Metroblogging New York hates Gothamist as much as Metroblogging Chicago hates Chicagoist.

And thanks to John from The Disney Blog for correcting my gaff, though it hardly makes the cess pool any cleaner. Still, special thanks to the Disney Blog, Cory Doctorow and friends for taking my mind off Perez Hilton.

final roundup

In retrospect, it's hard to imagine that the man who created this:



. . . had anything to do with the semi-logical backslap at Gawker yesterday. It's also hard to imagine he's an elitist.

From Fafblog, an intricate web of barely-legible political satire, the only referrence to those five-month-old Danish cartoons the Blogstigator can still stomach (one week old, but still fresh as hell).



Michelle Malkin still hasn't heard about post-modernity, and other than that there's not a hell of a lot going on out there this weekend. The Blogstigator's going back to bed.

apparently it wasn't “friends only”

Digital Spy is reporting that model/reality show contestant Jodie Marsh's blog, in which she made disparaging comments about hoursemates, got a little leaky, and she's taking flack from a charity for which she's an ambassador:

The model has used her weblog to make unfavourable comments about her former housemates and children's charity Beatbullying has admitted that these conflict with her work as their ambassador. 'We regret some statements have been perceived as conflicting with her work,' a spokesperson told The Mirror. 'We do not endorse any of our ambassador's personal opinions.'

I didn't know D-list slashy celebs were allowed to keep personal blogs. I'll need to keep my eye out for Kathy Griffin's Xanga.

UPDATE: Apparently this was the blog on her official website. And we all thought she was being a model because she was pretty.

blood in the water

The Blog Herald drew the Blogstigator's attention to the fact that Perez Hilton thinks Gawker Media hates America.

First, allow me to point out that everyone who reads Gawker is “beautiful and healthy.” Perez's snarky leak makes me wonder if he's not a bit sore about Gawker's spin on his recent spat with publicist Jose Martinez — which in turn makes me wonder if he hasn't been picking an awful lot of fights lately. Perez even parodies Gawker's slam against him in his slam against them.

Will Perez, who is already well on his way, secure his place as Gawker's new Page Six? Is he even worth their energy?

johnny depp, blogcest, and what everyone's still talking about

So The Disney Blog wrote about Johnny Depp cereal and LA monorails, and then Boing Boing picked it up direct (and again — they didn't cite TDB that time, but come on, who are we kidding!?). Can everyone stop eating out of each other's hand?

Pink is the New Blog is still talking about MySpace (I think I created my profile in 2003?), Andrew Sullivan and Michelle Malkin are still talking about those Danish cartoons, and she said “Can you say 'Dhimmitude?'” . . . AGAIN!
