Thanks to Wired for Narcipost, via Georganna. A post (apparently) of no interest to anyone but the poster. A kind of vanity publishing.

I do a bit of this, but I think, what the heck, it’s my blog, no-one is forced to read it – so I do post my personal diary / “hold that thought” type entries for my own future consumption / organisation. Who knows someone else might find it interesting. I have this know the man, know the work outlook too. The narciposts probably say something about the poster, whatever the post says to the poster or the reader. The medium is the message ‘n’all that.

  1. The most offensive narciposts are those made to others’ blogs (wink! wink!) No, seriously, I dropped by to see what tag/category you are using for those bits of info or instructions that are impossible to follow or self-conflicting. Do you know what I’m talking about, because I certainly don’t — are you ever going to categorize again?

  2. I know what you mean, but I just see it as one of the characteristics of blogs – an “eclectic” (ie disorganised) mix of the interesting / important and trivial / irrelevant.

    Now, if someone was paying me to publish 😉

    Categorizing ? One day, soon, I promise.
    (I even have a “to do list” in my side-bar.)
