We seem to be reaching a milestone in blogging. Sean is proud of his Mum (yet he somehow weeps for the blogosphere).
Earl Mardle points out that "when our mothers start blogging, we are reaching a very good place; the same kind of place that telephones occupy." He also reminisces about making his first nuisance telephone call!
Earl is using the TypePad beta for his blog, btw. I've heard nothing but good things about it so far.
