Random thoughts on the state of the blog

Well, now that I have twitter tools installed, hopefully there will be automatic blog updates daily of what I say over there. Currently, it’s set to fire at 3 AM every morning. Hopefully this will also give some folks incentive to get on twitter. My blog posts now link over to twitter as well. As I referenced before, I’m feeling the desire to blog again, and will be doing so on an ongoing basis.

As to the hobo blog, I’m leaving it there in its current form, but won’t be updating it moving forward. I’m rolling everything back into this blog. I was writing so little as it was, that I might as well just put it all back together again. Besides, Railroad Earth is a big part of my life, so why not write about it here where it belongs?

I predict a number of posts coming up about Colorado, which was a wonderful trip.

  • Glad Colorado was so good for you.

    The only thing to keep in mind about having TT post at 3 a.m. (and note that the setting in TT will apply to the time zone your host server is in, not how your blog is configured) is that the default title has the date in it — and it will be the date of the post.

    So you’ll get something like “Tweets for 2009-09-10” that has all the Tweets from the 9th in it. It bugs me excessively, which is why I have mind fire off at (relative) 11:30 p.m. I suppose I could take the date out of the subject line, but then I’d have eleventy-zillion posts all named the same thing.

    Of course, you could always go in and edit the source PHP of the plug-in …

  • Hmm. Good to know. Maybe I’ll set it to 11:59.
