Now that I've found the Blogosphere, I have discovered the joys of Blog Searches on Technorati . I can compile little collections of blogs where estrangements are discussed. Here are results from a search today on the word: estrangement:

"You Have to Show Up: On Small Miracles. (Okay, maybe not so small)
I hadn't intended to go to my cousin's funeral.
That sounds terrible, I know. And if I had chosen to focus on the 18 year estrangement of various factions of my family from each other and my own 15 year estrangement from my uncles (hey, Greeks are a war-like people, what can I say?)"

Graduation Days
""How could you take a picture with him and that woman?" she yelled at me. My grandparents were banned from visiting us after that.

A New Location for the Estrangements Blog

After checking out seven options (blogger.com, typepad, squarespace, livejournal, radiouserland, tangelo, movabletype)  for having a "traditional" type of online blog for my estrangements.com site, a blog that allows comments from visitors and archives the posts, I am leaning towards the typepad.com site. I have a free 30 day trial version currently. We'll see how this goes.

I've been checking out these options beginning on July 10 and have set up five different blogs to see how they work. I am using one for my business website. I like the Typepad setup a lot. Let's see how it works.

This all takes time which is one reason that I haven't been contributing any new posts to the estrangements.com site lately. I've been busy researching and trying out online blog services.

You are going to be seeing the name "Snicks". That was my nickname in high school. Few who know me in my offline life know that name. I miss my old nickname so have decided to use it for some of my online postings.
