Hmm, what format?

Damnit. I had such grand plans. On attempting to blog my first status update, I realized that the format of the blog offers so much more expressiveness than the format of gmail status updates.

If my status is:
"Growing up online:"

How should I blog that?

Should I use "Growing up online" as the title, then embed the video in the post? Would that stay true to the spartan nature of status updates? Am I over-thinking this?

I leave it to you my dear acolytes. You decide the format by debating the alternatives in the comments section of this post and I'll adhere to it to the best of my capricious, perfunctory abilities.

Vijay's status blog

I update my gmail status a lot. The ephemeral thoughts that flit through my mind find temporary housing in my gmail status. Each, in turn, is kicked out once it has overstayed its welcome (the typical lease agreement lasts about 25 minutes).

This poses a problem for my legion of acolytes, who hang on my status updates like day traders hanging on the gyrations of the stock market.

Well my dear acolytes, I have felicitous news for you! From now on, every status update I make will be blogged. If you've missed some updates, or would like to find old ones, then they'll all be housed here, in the retirement home for geriatric status updates.
