What the people want: gassy dogs, speakers, and snowflake charities

My stats pack­age for this site keeps track of what search terms peo­ple have used to find this site. So far, noth­ing scur­rilous has crossed my shores, but three old posts have been dredged up by vis­i­tors. Some­one from Israel searched for “novo loud­speak­ers” and came up with my post on the sec­ond time I […]

New design mostly unveiled

So, the new design is here, most­ly. It has a pleas­ing col­or scheme (blue!) and a pleas­ing bit of typog­ra­phy, as well as a huge bit of white space over there on the right side, just beg­ging for… ads? A blogroll? Pic­tures of me? I’ll take sug­ges­tions, if you have any. No, I haven’t test­ed […]

New blog, same as the old blogs, exactly

In which I announce the new new blog, again. Or some­thing. And I admit to start­ing a free­lance design busi­ness.

When?

Ain’t that the trick? Once I pull the trig­ger, if I’m seri­ous, I need to be writ­ing reg­u­lar­ly, and (prob­a­bly more impor­tant­ly) the inter­est­ing­ness has to be pret­ty high. I mean, who’s going to come back once they’ve read what I ate for lunch today? Reg­u­lar­ly means, prob­a­bly, at least once a day. If I […]

Why?

Why do we blog? To fill a void? To make friends? To make mon­ey? Because we like (the sound of) our own voic­es? I have two blogs. I have one for my fam­i­ly and friends. I have anoth­er, until now unnamed, for the gen­er­al pub­lic. I write the first (though I haven’t much late­ly) to […]

Where?

This seems like an odd ques­tion to pose to a blog­ger. Where? Where do you live? Where do you write? Where are you talk­ing about? Where is your head today? For most peo­ple, you’d think the answer would be, “on my site!” One of the coolest things about a blog is that it does­n’t mat­ter […]

What?

So what will this blog be about? What ser­vice will it con­tribute to human­i­ty? What good will it bring forth? Why will mil­lions of read­ers flock to it dai­ly? I don’t have a clue. I have a per­son­al fam­i­ly site, so I don’t expect to be writ­ing about my fam­i­ly much. I think I’m wit­ty, […]

Who?

More about me. Who am I, and why should you care? My name is Dan­ny (only sort of my real name, as it turns out), and I am a cit­i­zen of two coun­tries, a (rel­a­tive­ly) recent arrival in this coun­try, and now a Mid­west­ern­er, if you con­sid­er Kansas to be in the Mid­west. I am […]

Anyone use Flickr?

Hey all. So, I’ve been using Gallery now for a cou­ple of years. And with the new ver­sion 2, it has improved great­ly. But I am start­ing to chafe at how much I need to get in and under the hood to make it what I want. So. I am con­sid­er­ing, just a bit, pay­ing […]
