Nuts of and about blogging

In the short while since Ben has started blogging again, one of his last posts has picked up a good track of comments, which seemingly groks the issues between two of the major blog “systems”: Movable Type and WordPress. Now, guiltily, Ben is right that I have been blogging only nominally as of late. (Shame […]


The discipline of blogging

“Hello World“… errr, I mean, hi, I’m back; that is: back from a 9-month blogging sabbatical. It was less intentional than being not disciplined enough to get a round tuit.
