Finally got around to cleaning things up on my website. Upgraded Gallery2 and WordPress. I also started separating my Twitter Tweets as a separate category so the daily digests will keep from cluttering the main page and my RSS feeds. Thanks to this article for explaining how.
Though I haven’t made it all the way through my reading from 2007, I will finish it off soon enough. In 2008 I haven’t been reading as much so there is less to write about. The backlog of posts published today are:
- "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" by Jim Gray
- "Founders at Work" by Jessica Livingston
- "The Myths of Innovation" by Scott Berkun
- "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini
- "The Namesake" by Jhumpa Lahiri
It feels good to be blogging again, even if it is mostly for my own archival purposes. Lots of pictures to upload, there are a handful of draft posts that I really want to get back to and finish off – some actual content from inside my head. I realized recently that the reason for my lack of blogging was the lack of free offline blogging tools on Mac OS X. This sounds strange, but I feel most compelled to write new content when I am not online. Once I’m online there is always other stuff to do. Introspection time is often reserved to offline time. Now that I have a new Windows box I use everyday again (Lenovo ThinkCentre M-Series) I installed Windows Live Writer and have been using it more and more.
The look and feel of the site is totally stale, no rounded edges and fixed width are annoying me. One of these weekends I’ll revamp the theme for the site.
Thanks to everyone for putting up with my daily Twitter posts in RSS etc – won’t have to worry about that anymore.
