    Precisely. As strange as it may sound there are those of us that have friends & perhaps family who are not geeks and have nothing to do with Perl whatsoever. Why would those people come to a programming community website?

    If you only want your ramblings read by fellow Perlers then use.perl.org is the perfect place for that - and more power to ya. If you want "outsiders" to read the

      presumably they are going out of their way to
      read a blog as it is. What difference does it
      make where it is? To them a link is a link.

        Well yes but some outer blogs could be part of a more encompassing "page" with photos or other misc pages - not just the blog itself. Personally I'd like to stay on the same site with the same "look & feel" instead of remembering "Ok I go to use.perl.org for his blog, foo.bar.org for his photos and someotherfoo.org for his other stuff. Yes technically they're just links but all 3 sites could look different and act differently. That along with the fact that you are more likely (but not always obviously) to write geeky stuff down in use.perl.org journals and perhaps your other non-geek friends & family really couldn't give a rats arse what version of Mozilla you're currently trying out :-)

        But why all the whining & fussing? If you want your own blog somewhere else - great, go for it. If you want to just write stuff here - super, terrific. If you want to write stuff here and your own blog - more power to ya. Don't take these journals so seriously, jeez.
