I pushed through some major changes to site URLs tonight. Every single site URL has now changed as a result, but the change is good, and all old URLs should still work just fine, seamlessly redirecting visitors to the new URLs. Just in case though, please let me know if you find a non-working URL. … Continue reading Changed all site URLs
A few weeks ago, I took my Flickr photos out of the site feed [reference]. Last night, I put them back in. Turns out taking them out cut their views by about 60-80%. That taught me two things: Showed me how few of the hundreds of people who've added me as a contact at Flickr … Continue reading Photos back in the site feed
At least for now, I'm removing my Flickr feed from my main feed. If you are a feed subscriber, you've been able to see my Flickr photos appear as separate feed items in my main feed, thanks to a feature at FeedBurner that allows me to splice my site feed with my Flickr photos feed. … Continue reading Removing photos from my main feed

I've been monitoring the feed usage stats, and it looks like everyone has migrated over to the new feed. Just in case, please check your bookmarks and feeds, and correct them as follows, where appropriate: Main site … Continue reading A few feed changes for my site
