High School Walk-Outs

Friday, March 31, 2006 11:19

Has anyone had any first hand knowledge of what is happening with the walk-outs? Are the students just 'taking a few days off' like I've heard in some news programs or is there some seriousness behind it?

Interviewing San Diego: Joelle Reeder

Tuesday, October 19, 2004 6:00

Joelle is one of our favorite San Diego bloggers. She's the driving force behind this year's Rock The Walk event, designs killer blog skins, and runs her own blog at Tenth-Muse. She's sassy, and fun, with with a pinch of snark. Find out more about Joelle below: Blog Birthday: Well, I've been "blogging", unbeknownst to me, for years, manually in notepad on my old website, Joellapalooza.com, but Tenth Muse was born January 22, 2003. I also run a weight-loss community blog called Put Down the Donut which was born sometime last fall. Why do you blog? I moved out of San Diego to Dallas for 5 years, so I think it was originally started as a way for my friends and I to stay in touch. My friend at MaisonPants.com recommended I start blogging and well... there you go!

Interviewing San Diego: Chuck Hartley

Wednesday, July 21, 2004 0:01

Chuck been blogging since 2001 and writes about his faithful companion Pongo, his life, his thoughts, the law, and everything else. He has a laid-back style that seems at odds with his profession. He's a lawyer. But don't let that fool you, Chuck rocks. Last year he blogged about a diagnosis that was pretty scary. Chuck continued blogging, and remains a great read. Blog Birthday: May 12, 2001 Why do you blog? It was a place to vent, ramble, and spout off at a time when my life was going through a lot of changes and I was losing touch with a lot of my real life contacts. My job was being eliminated (or I was being eliminated from my firm, a question of perspective I guess) and I was moving somewhere (uncertain at the time, but ended up in San Diego). It also seemed like a simple way to expand the site and make it a bit more dynamic. What do you talk about? My life, a bit about politics and law, my dog. What don't you talk about? Why? Sexual positions and partners. Words don't do it justice and this isn't a photo blog. Also the privacy issues and the fact that my parents are aware of the site necessitate a bit of discretion.

Interviewing San Diego: Mikey

Sunday, July 18, 2004 7:00

Mikey is our second interviewee in our goal to talk to interesting bloggers based in San Diego. Mikey, formerly NerdBoyMikey grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, went to ASU in Tempe, Arizona, then to Chicago with a stop in Las Vegas and ended up in San Diego. Mikey is an incessant blogger since 2002 and has a devoted readership. He's an "award-winning" blogger: In 2003 he won "best tagline" award from the Bloggies. "Cool, like the other side of the pillow" was the tagline. (Hmm... maybe San Diego Blog needs a tagline?) We asked Mikey the boilerplate questions, and here are his answers. Blog Birthday: Ah. Well, the birthday of my current blog on the domain electricbugaloo.com is March 12, 2002. I had a blog before that over at nerdboymikey.com before I unwittingly let the registration lapse and some porn search engine in Hong Kong snatched it out from under me.

What planet are you from?

Tuesday, September 23, 2003 16:18

I know that Arnold isn't everyone's favorite candidate for the new Governor of Cali, but at least he might know we are all from the same planet. He's been in the movies. I'm guessing he knows that fiction is a separate thing than reality. Although, it might nice to ...

So this is where the cool people are……

Thursday, May 29, 2003 16:01

I was wondering. I've been in the San Diego area since about '96 with the exception of a few crazy and depressing months in Seattle. I love it here. I almost love having a zillion part time jobs that make it possible to almost afford to live here ...
