Site Change Complete

Sunday, January 20th, 2008

The site transition is complete. I think everything is working fine, but if you notice anything strange please leave a comment here.

Feed Issues Resolved

Friday, October 19th, 2007

Apparently some people were using http://jasonpenney.net/blog/feed as my feed URL instead of http://jasonpenney.net/feed. I’m not sure where the first URL came from, or why it worked, or why it stopped working, but they now both go to the same place. So if I seem to have disappeared for a while, that’s probably what caused it. You may want to change to the correct feed link just to be sure it doesn’t happen again.

Site Updated

Thursday, October 11th, 2007

I upgraded the site to WordPress 2.3 yesterday. Things seem to be working for the most part, but I had to disable a few things. If you notice anything strange please leave a comment (and if you read the site via one of the feeds please take a moment to check it out if you have the time). Thanks!

New Feed

Monday, March 26th, 2007

I had been trying to find a way to consolidate some of the content I create for a while now. My sidebars are over-filled as it is, so I didn’t want to go sticking twitter and cocomment widgets all over the place. At the same time I’d like people who are interested to know that I’m active (sometimes when I don’t have time to post I still manage to comment elsewhere). I think I’ve found the answer thanks to Yahoo Pipes. I fooled around with it a bit, and created a consolidated feed partly based on Dougal Campbell’s LifeFeed (which seems as good a name as any).

It seems to work pretty well (although twitter seems to be timing out so usually only a single post makes the combined feed). I added it to the Subscribe box and replaced Recent Posts in the sidebar with Recent Activity. If I ever finish the site redesign I’ll probably make a nicely displayed version available on a separate page.

Site Moved, Update Your Bookmarks

Thursday, December 7th, 2006

Welcome to my sites new home. I had been hoping to have some exciting new stuff ready to go first, but I don’t. Anyway if you bookmark the site or link here (which I appreciate), could you please update your links to point to http://jasonpenney.net/.

Existing links should continue to work for some time, but not forever.

Excuse the Mess

Monday, July 24th, 2006

I’m tidying up a few things around here, and as a result things may not work quite right for a bit. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Hopefully things will stabilize soon.

Mentioned on ‘I Should Be Writing’

Tuesday, July 4th, 2006

I thought I had posted this at the time, but apparently I didn’t.

My One Pass Revision effort was mentioned on Mur Lafferty’s I Should Be Writing (show #41, June 17, 2006). Thanks to Mur for keeping me honest in front of a larger audience.

If you haven’t heard it before, you really ought to check it out.

Theme Tweaking

Monday, January 2nd, 2006

I made some adjustments to the theme today. If you don’t run at 800×600 you probably shouldn’t notice. If anything looks messed up, please try to clear you cache and reload. If it’s still messed up, please leave a comment.

Welcome

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2004

Welcome to my blog. It’s not my first one, but it’s the one that’s here now.

Mostly I plan to use it to post about my writing.

First posts are always awkward on these things, and this one is now over.
