My New Blog Domination Strategy

I am of two minds when I look at the whole A-List blogger thing (blogerati, blogebrity, whatever silly name you want to call it).

On the one hand, it's completely ridiculous and I want nothing to do with it or anyone who's concerned about it.

(You know, that whole "not wanting to be a member of any club that would have me as a member" thing.)

On the other hand, I'm completely jealous.

Anyway, I figure that I can worry about it when it happens, so I've decided to become blog famous.

This is in light of the fact that I am unlikely to become any other kind of famous (outside of "victim of spectactularly gruesome crime"-famous, which I would prefer to avoid).

Taking a look at other "A-List" bloggers: Well, I'm not a technologist, I'm ambition-deficient, I don't have any unusual insights, I'm not an authority on any particular subject, I don't go to the right parties, and I'm not the entrepreneurial-type, so all those doorways are closed to me.

However, what I can do is have a name that's unusually-spelled, but pronounced almost exactly like the mundane version.

Therefore, from now on, my name is Dgo Loong. It's pronounced "Joe", as intensive research in the Microsoft Speech Properties Control Panel shows.

(Actually, "Djo" would probably be closer; I started with Djo since I was already familiar with that whole Djembe/Jim thing, but Djo looks to be an actual name and surname, whereas Dgo does not.)

I will probably have to cultivate a new persona, but one thing at a time.

I haven't registered dgologon.com yet, but dgo@joelogon.com will work.

Please make a note of it.
