Lifestreaming

The details of my life are quite inconsequential…

Okay, so I’m no Dr. Evil, but I do have this odd desire to share what’s happening in my life and what’s bouncing around in my head with people. Sometimes the ruminations have a focus, other times they just reflect current personal events and whatnot.

Even though I don’t update this blog very often, my Twitter feed does get a lot of activity. So when I do write something here, usually I prefer to make it something more than a quick blurb. And the folks that want to see what’s happening want more than just that; photos, videos, etc. all figure into the mess. In short, I want a lifestream (or the equivalent of my Facebook updates).

A few months ago, I thought FriendFeed might provide the answer, but now I’ve found a service I think I like better: Storytlr. The presentation looks a lot nicer and they have some advanced options like using a CNAME record (so your site looks like it really is your site) as well as backing up your data from other services.

For those interested, I still use Feedburner, so you can still just get the same URL no matter what. Then again, you might get inundated with my Twitter updates…

Test post from iPod

Testing the new WordPress app for iPhone and iPod Touch. Given the keyboard on this, it’s doubtful I’d write any long posts with it. Still, could prove useful in a pinch.

FriendFeed

I’ve started using FriendFeed to gather all my various bits of web activity into one place. Those subscribed to the feed here might prefer the feed there instead, as it also includes my activity on del.icio.us and a few other places as well. But feel free to subscribe here as well.

I need to figure out how to merge things together a little more smoothly. A bit at a time.

Hello world!

I used to run a weblog for a long time on my own domain, but I got out of the habit of writing for it. Administering it got to be a pain sometimes as well.

So what makes this try different?

  • I have my audience firmly in mind: People that know me. Not that it’ll be completely boring to other people… but close.
  • No more administering it myself. WordPress.com takes care of all the technical messiness for me.
  • Kaizen: It’s a small step I’m trying to take every day to remind myself what is good about my life and what small things I can improve. </StuartSmalley>
