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

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

Excuse the mess

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.

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.
