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.

 

Two Technological Advances

  1. I finally spent some time over the weekend exploring Technorati, and now that I realize what it actually does (at least in part), I'm hooked! I found two links that I didn't know about, one from Vandal with a Handle, who approved of my Christmas present, and one from Modulator, placing my first robin o' the spring in the Friday Ark last week. How neat! Thank you both :-)

    And even better, I can make the list of inbound links into a "watchlist" and put it in FeedDemon via RSS, which is just plain fun.

  2. I signed up for the Amazon Associate program, not because I expect to make a fortune hawking books to my throngs of admiring readers, but so that the Man and I can put book covers in our posts. Also very neat, although I wish the pictures were a bit bigger. I may switch to the "basic display" which is more of a pain-in-the-butt because you have to host the picture yourself, but you do get a bigger image.
