A Link and Some Ch-Ch-Changes

December 17, 2008

Firstly, I’ve been invited to blog over at Intrepid Classroom and I have my first post up! Check it out.

Secondly, I’ll be moving the adress of my main blog (this one) to it’s own domain, free from the tyrannical shackles of our WordPress overlords! Except that I’ll still be using their blogging software. And I actually really like WordPress. But in any case, I’ll give you delightful readers the new url once I get everything ironed out. Till then this will still be my base of operations, so don’t remove the Post-Punk Nerd from your bookmarks just yet.

Thanks for reading!

Clay Burell tagged me for my very first meme!

1. Create a wordle from your blog’s RSS feed.
2. Blog it and describe your reaction. Any surprises?
3. Tag others to do the same.
4. Link back here and to where you were first tagged.

Impressions? Well, I’m not surprised by the results; my last two posts of substance have both climbed close to 2,000 words in length, and both dealt with similar themes, so I’m not surprised at the words that came out on top. I think it will be interesting to revisit this in a few months and compare what comes up then with this first effort.

I’m supposed to tag others, but since I’m not exactly established enough to have any frequent and familiar readers, I suppose I’ll just tag the last few people with blogs who commented here (not counting Clay, obviously). So feel free to run with this:

Steve Ransom

Bill Farren

And a free spot… With which I guess I’ll just tag the next person who wants it?

The last spot goes to jhawtin! See her creation here.

Me, My Blog, & I

November 25, 2008

I’ve been thinking about what direction I want my blog to go in, and how I want my blog to reflect and effect my life. There’s been quite a few separate fibers that have come together to form the thread I’m sewing now. The most important ones are perhaps the most personal. Read the rest of this entry »
