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.

 

Welcome Mad Oilman!

My wonderful husband makes his internet debut tonight :-)

I think I'll be playing with MovableType quite a bit in the near future, as I'm managing his site as well as my own. In anticipation of one of his requests, I finally built a link module and implemented it here (see Daily Reads, Art and Technology, and Current Events sections on the sidebar). I'm very proud of myself, although this has been on my to-do list forever.... I built my lists from my FeedDemon opml files and it was quite a surprise to realize how many sites I only visit via RSS. I only go to the actual sites if they don't have full text RSS, so I had completely forgotten what some of these sites really "look" like. Maybe that's why it doesn't bother me that I still have a default template here ;-)

Future projects include del.icio.us links (for me) and sitemeter and ecosystem setup (for him). I'm feeling quite confident, since I managed to get MT running on my local machine for testing (thank you wampserver) so I don't have to worry about crashing my real site while I try stuff out. We'll see how long that confidence lasts....
