One application it handles well is photo storage. I dumped a few hundred more old photos into its system. Most are in the private Kautz group, only available to family members and friends within that group.
I placed my collection of Alaska pictures in the common area for anyone to peruse. They were taken by me back in 2002 on my construction project I manage with the FAA in Anchorage, Alaska. That was back in the high security days. I had some innocent job-site photos that the Feds called me up and said to take off-line. My bad… oops. So, there is nothing concerning my project in any of these photos.
If you like rugged outdoor beauty, and earthquakes, Alaska is the place to find it. Also, very cold weather. I had an outstanding experience. Enjoy the pictures.
There are some great photos of Mt. Denali or if you prefer Mt. McKinley. Most of the time I was there (8 months) Denali was shrouded in clouds. I waited and watched the weather reports. When a huge high-pressure area settled in over central Alaska, I figured the mountain would be in the clear. I had already scouted out the best photo locations while it was in the clouds, so I knew just where to go to get these shots.
Not certain. I will continue adding photos. I may add new SIG’s (Special Interest Groups) or activities I like, if the mood strikes me. It is easier than building another stand-alone website. I have some features hidden for members only, but I won’t actively solicit members. Blognasium is just another blog, but open to contribution if desired.
Most of my friends have sold their souls to “FaceBloke” and surrendered all personal privacy. Identity thieves and government data collectors have a smorgasbord of information on everyone participating.
I would use it only for a commercial or business billboard. FB was continuously harassing me to spend money on my KautzCraft page to “move it up” for better exposure. I understand. It’s just business. Back in the “old days” Ad-men sold space in the Phone book Yellow Pages using the same reasoning. The more you pay, the bigger and fancier the ad and the more business you would receive.
Blognasium is not trying to sell anything. I hope you just like to see what’s new from time to time. “Lurkers” are welcome. If you want more, join the community.
Blognasium is a website where every member can have a place to say what they want. Well, publish what they want. I have published a dozen separate blogs about the things that interest me. Blognasium is where I open the door for anyone else to do the same. The infrastructure is here and free for just joining.
The ShareSpace is designed to share current personal activity with short posts and pictures. Once registered, Photo albums can be created for sharing. There is a place for Pages where articles can be published. Groups can have their private or public space as they desire. The Blog is where you might want to write a detailed story, more like an article with provision and encouragement for reader comments. Blogs usually are not private. Discussions are where two or more people can join in open public Q&A discussion, much looser than a blog but more organized than posting in the Community.
About the Registration
Registration is required to contribute. You enter some basic personal information. You have control over what is shown publicly for some of that information like age, gender, phone, and location. It’s display is up to you, after you are registered. The community is intended for us to get to know each other and not hide behind a “handle”. A “username” is welcome (I use RamblinDan) but it’s no secret identity.
I have resigned from the Facebook site. Ransomware tried to capture my computer while I was using Facebook. No advertising or tracking links are permitted here. No data is shared other than what you make public. I installed HTTPS security, so everything sent to and from this website is encrypted.
Blognasium is designed to be a safe community.
