Well… as you’ve been able to read, there have been some major changes going on – both personal and here on the Blog. I think the personal stuff has been discussed enough (for now) so I’ll stick mostly with the blog-related.
1) Tags – I have gone through and managed to put tags on all of the old posts, and should have them going forward. While this may be useful in the future, it mainly derived from me wanting easy access to anything I wrote about my wife…
2) I’ve been cheating a little on my “Currently Reading” – I’ve actually been reading a few other things besides Joe Hill’s book. for the last couple of months. Honestly, I haven’t opened his book since March 11/12-ish. I DO plan on finishing it, however… I’m just having to build myself back up to it. Along the same lines, I’ve acquired a few other books as well, so I won’t have a shortage when I start churning through material.
3) Side projects – I’ve started (and linked) two other blogs to this one. The first is “The Jennifer Project” – for those that knew my wife and feel like sharing their thoughts, memories and other experiences. As of today (5-15-07), I have not widely talked about it, which is why it looks a little bare, but it’s there!
The other blog is for fiction prompts and writing. Part of the original idea here was going to be for putting writing projects up (snippets and threads, some random ideas and prompt responses, etc.), before I started and evolved this into more of a general journal. The fiction blog is intended to be just that – prose, poetry or other creative endeavors, for the sake of creativity.
4) Future projects: I am in the process of converting, both literally, and figuratively (for now we’ll deal with the figurative side 🙂 … For years, I have been anti-Mac – not because they were bad products, but the compatability wasn’t there (too many other things were on PCs that were not available on Macs, that it didn’t make much sense to me)… Now, however, with the compatability of devices (and ESPECIALLY portable devices/media), the line and stigma has become blurred. Jenn and I had been talking about getting a Mac for a while, and within the last month, I have started the conversion process – I got a Mac Book.
The relevance for “Future Projects”, you may ask? As I get more comfortable with the software and options available with a Mac, I will be developing more things – video snippets and possible podcasts, or just plain photo pages/blogging, or musical bits… Consider this the notice of things that may come down the pipe in the future…. “That’s right – you heard it HERE first!”
Ahh… now ’tis time to return to work for a bit… to get ready for lunch, before going to lunch… oh, to be back to writing…
