This blog has moved

I have moved my blog from WordPress to a static site — currently http://dpb.bitbucket.org/. Atom feed is available at https://dpb.bitbucket.org/feeds/all.atom.xml.

I have been a little dissatisfied with the inflexibility of the WordPress unpaid site with regard to customization. I am now using Pelican on Bitbucket, and I look forward to improving my command of CSS and Jinja2 by practicing on the site. I also hope to learn soon how to install Disqus commenting and, since Bitbucket doesn’t support viewing statistics, perhaps trying to set up an analytics service of some kind. Not all of the media has been fully transfered, but I expect to complete that soon. I’m looking forward to composing and editing my posts in Markdown.

Thanks for reading on WordPress up to now.

Starting a blog

I have moved my blog from WordPress to a static site — currently http://dpb.bitbucket.org/. Atom feed is available at https://dpb.bitbucket.org/feeds/all.atom.xml.

I have initiated this blog at the behest of a friend. I enjoy sharing the many things that interest me, so perhaps it will prove an effective medium, although the word “blog” reminds me of “brag” and “blah” and “bog”.


Update, 20110911: I find that to maintain the blog takes no more time than it used to to write and send the email circulars I have produced for some years. The blog vehicle allows my contacts to read it when and if they want to, and I don’t have to remember to send it to them.
