Matthew J. Stinson has shut down his lousy, balky, link-losing blog, A Fearful Symmetry, in favor of a bright, shiny, eponymous blog using Movable Type.

He has also started something called the Axis of Martini, because, well, can you ever have enough blogging alliances?

  1. “balky, link-losing blog” . . . ouch,

    Actually, the worst thing about my Blogspot blog was the comments. After repeated comment server crashes I decided MT was my only recourse.

    Am I the only one not in an “Axis” these days? It’s not that I’m all that independent… it’s just that no one’s asked.
