9rules: networks++

9rules_knowthebest.gif Looks like I got accepted as a 9rules member. I forgot I had applied to the network back in November, but am happy to be in.

9rules is a collection of blogs representing good writing in a variety of categories. As they put it, “We find the best content from the independent web and pull it all together in one location.” And the 9 rules? Those are:

1. Love what you do.
2. Never stop learning.
3. Form works with function.
4. Simple is beautiful.
5. Work hard, play hard.
6. You get what you pay for.
7. When you talk, we listen.
8. Must constantly improve.
9. Respect your inspiration.

I can go with those… hopefully without stretching too far, as they’re generally ideals I already hold. Oh — and I feel a blog redesign coming on. I think I’ve been using this theme for two years now. It’s got a couple of rough edges I never did finish off, but I find I’m growing tired of it these days. In any event, this design (and the new one, should I actually get around to it) will now sport the 9rules logo along with my other networks.
