At last, the world contains a blog by me!
Hello, early readers of Riding on Roadways!
Who the heck are you?
How did you find this page? Are you my wife? Please explain your presence here in the comments below.
And a special hello to all of you far-future historian-bots, assembling a picture of 21st century humanity through our bloggy emissions. We are very sorry for how we left things! Thanks for cleaning up. Hope you like the blog!
This’ll be a fun experiment, blogging. Let’s watch it shape up together, shall we? I promise to try to add some content every day for the first few months. Shouldn’t be too hard to find things to tell you, I have a very big mouth.
Some upcoming subjects!
- My family, and how we get around! and we sure do get around.
- My bikes, with pictures ’cause they are lovely and I’m proud!
- Commute humor. and horror.
- Seattle Bicycle Politics.
- Why cars are just awful.
- Stories of things that happened to me before I started this blog!
- Racism, Classism, Sexism, Homophobia and the panoply of systemic oppressions, how they are real and how they relate to bikes.
- Maybe something about comics and movies every once and a while.
- Reviews of every single product I own!
- Other stuff!
Should be fun, right? Special thanks to my partner, Mz. Oil for setting this thing up. Luv ya!
See you tomorrow!
Yes, this is your wife! And your biggest fan! Go Blogger go!
Readers, what do you think her pseudonym should be? If you know us, try not to spoil the illusion of privacy using blog names provides our family, ‘kay? Its kinda sad, because Baby Oil has a really cute name out there in Meatspace, but here in Blogowebworld, its “Baby Oil!”
“Lady Oil” sounds so dignified. I’m thrilled to see this blog! As one of Davey’s fans who is also a blogger, it’s like worlds collidin’ yo. Makes me think I should put up a blogroll on Urban Adonia, hmm.
Yeah, blogroll it! I love Urban Adonia, I recommend all readers go there and read and then think and then go back.
via Lady Oil. And also: it’s about damn time.
See you tomorrow indeed.
Hi, love you!
I had the distinct pleasure of working with Lady Oil.
Now for the names.Lady Oil works but Baby Oil falls a bit short.
Here is a list of my suggestions.
Busy Little Oil
Olly Olly Oiler
There, I’m done.
These are hysterical. Little Shale is the saddest nickname I’ve ever heard.
Thanks for the suggestions!
I’ve been waiting years for a blog like this! Welcome, Mr. Oil!
Thanks, Dave! I am really enjoying the blogging life already.
@yogaforbikers outed your blog on Twitter. Prepare yourself for a twitstorm of visitors. Since the word’s out now, I added a link to your blog from my blog.
I’d been worried that I was going to run out of things to read on the internet. Now that you are here, I’m less worried about that.
Thanks so much, Kent. I actually haven’t figured out how to determine the number of visitors I get.
I hope you like reading this crap!
I’ve been using Sitemeter on my site. Seems to work pretty well.
I second (or third) the it’s about time sentiment! As for finding you, Kent retweeted a Yogaforbikers post about it, and having met you in real life several times I thought it only polite to make my way over and see what all the fuss was about.
As for names, I’m trying to work pipsqueak into something…give me some time for this one…I’ll get it…
I’m late to the party (as usual) but plan to be the last guest here. Looking forward to reading about your adventures!
You are certainly not late, Anne. The party is most definitely just getting started. I hope you enjoy reading about our modest adventures even 1/8th as much as I love reading carfreedays.com!
Loving writing it!
[...] One of our favorite bikers in Seattle has become a family biker and he now has a new blog. And I must say, he’s on fire. Davey is single-handedly putting us old and lazy bloggers to shame. I love his writing and his playful humor, be sure to start at the beginning. [...]
