>Things that affect my blog

In blogging,work on April 24, 2008 by mstevensrev

>The number one factor that has been effecting my blogging is twitter. I used to feel that I had to write a few hundred words that would profoundly impact the world every day. Twitter has lead me to use my blog more for thoughts and in the moment comments. I’m not sure how helpful it is for me in my discipline of writing, which is supposed to prepare me to be the next great American writer, but it has influenced me.

Second is my iPhone. I now take an send pictures to my blog. This trend I really like. I never had the time to transfer images from my camera to my computer to my blog. Right from my phone works for me.

Third is change at work. Work has been pretty demanding. I don’t have the energy I had last year at this time. I wake up in the mornings and it is hard for me to get going. I’m less than two weeks away from a marathon and often that is just how my body reacts when I get close to race day. All the training has taken it toll. Also the weather in Seattle sucks. It has continued to be very cold and that has had an effect on me. I mention that under work because my office is very cold, I am still wearing Long John’s this week!


>The New Look

>Changed the template I was using the morning for anyone who actually logs on to the page. The last one was very beautiful, but had some issues. First it had the designers name right at the top center of the template. That drove me crazy and I could not find it in the code to delete. Second some of my page elements started to go wacky in the last few days, not sure if anyone else noticed that my tags disappeared and all that was left were numbers that were not even uniformly layed out. Third there was too much wasted space. I hope this works, I like it simple and sweet.
