Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


It was a Kimalanche!

When Kim wrote his super-nice post about Chester (see next to last post on the page) and linked to my story, I have to admit that I checked my log files on my server several times to see if I could detect an effect. It didn't seem like there was any extra activity, so I kind of forgot about it. However, in the last few days I've been doing research for the Man into such arcane blogstuff as sitemeter and the ecosystem, so I thought I'd go look at my statistics again. I guess the updating takes a day or so, because now it shows a definite Kimalanche!

I've no idea why Sunday shows zero activity. All my Sundays look that way, so I suspect it has something to do with the backups that my host runs. I'm usually doing maintenance on Sundays, so I know there should be at least some activity! Anyhow, it looks like things are back to normal, so I guess I won't bother registering in the ecosystem after all ;-)
