So, I found a blog post (http://www.chrisbrogan.com/27-blogging-secrets-to-power-your-community/) with suggestions on how to improve one's blogging. Most of the ideas apply to someone in it for the money, but I liked the idea of claiming my own blogs on Technorati. So, the code (q5srg8wvyf) you see is my claim code that I had to put into a post inn order to stake my claim.
In retrospect, this is kind of a pain. :-)
