…Some apps are essential to Mac blogging?

Essential Mac Apps

As a Mac based blogger, there are some apps that are almost essential to a smooth workflow.

Thus, Darren Rowse’s list of the 14 Essential Mac OSX Applications for Bloggers is a great start if you’re on your way to online fame, and though I’d also add NetNewsWire (especially now that it’s free), I think it’s hard to disagree with what he’s put together.

Care to add any others?

…Andrew Olmsted will be missed?

Andrew Olmsted

Major Andrew Olmsted was a blogger and a fighter.

Unfortunately, being a fighter meant that Andrew spent time in some very dangerous places, and he was killed last Thursday while serving his country in Iraq.

Before he left, however, he penned a final post that he had asked his friend hilzoy to publish in the event that anything happened to him. The result is a touching and heartfelt look into the life of a soldier, including the quotes that he lived by, and the ideas that he died by.

It’s always good to remind yourself every once in a while of just how precious life is, so open your heart and give Andrew’s Final Post a read; because a final goodbye is as honest as anyone is ever going to be.

…Dominos doesn’t know left from right?

Dominos Pizza

When ordering online, Dominos makes you select a side for your toppings to go on.

Instead of just “half”, they actually make you choose “left” or “right”, which made one inquisitive blogger want to know: Will they deliver what they request?

Apparently not, as the delivered pizza was exactly opposite of what had been ordered.

Just goes to show you that you can’t count on quality anymore…

…It’s Website Wednesday: 66 Celebrities That Blog?

Celebrity

Rather than choose one site for this week’s Website Wednesday, I’m going to give you 66 of them, and let you co the choosing.

Celebrity Cowboy Gossip Blog has put together a list of 66 Celebrities that Blog, and it’s surprising how many well known people wield a keyboard in the online world.

It is worth noting though that some of these have long since been abandoned, and “a bunch of them are disappointing” because “their sole intention is to advertise a product or show.”

However, there are some choice diamonds buried among the rough, so click around and see what you can discover, because you never know who might be blogging on the down low.
