Well – it’s been some time since I wrote anything, but you may have noticed that the site looks a little different. I’ve added the blogroll from Bloglines – this has blown out a bit recently, and partly explains the lack of writing – I’ve been doing more reading – and yes I DO keep up with them. I’ve also added Technorati Favourites – not surprisingly the faves are from the blogroll. The blogroll will probably not grow greatly – blogs will come and go, as will the Favourites … but in the meantime.
I also found a couple of logos to pretty up the "Interested in …" sidebar – digitalsalvo is Tim Auld, an Adelaide photographer who has taken on volleyball as a special interest, so he gets my support here.
The ClustrMap looked interesting, so it’s there for a while – I’m happily surprised at the geographic spread.
The "John’s Journey" link I picked up from Dennis Howlett’s blog – I will be adding a link to the Motor Neurone Disease Association of Australia as well. For those of you not familiar with the disease, I pray it stays that way for you – it is an obscene experience watching otherwise healthy people waste away before your eyes. I’ve come across it twice – my father-in-law was diagnosed with it just after his retirement, and the following ten months were agonising for him and the family; and a colleague’s wife (a young woman in her twenties). Dennis has also had personal experience with it, which no doubt explains his support for John’s journey.
Sorry about the morbid patch there – and I know there are plenty of other equally-shattering diseases and afflictions out there. MND bit close to home, so it’s my interest.
I’ve gone back to the 3-column format, mainly to reduce the width of the posts in an attempt to make them easier to read.
I mentioned CoComment in an earlier post – that’s getting more interesting as more people get involved (and it’s some proof that I’m engaging in conversations SOMEWHERE, even if not here).
