Been having fun with other facets of the internet.
Got a facebook page and twitter account now. I could’ve done a page for each blog, but I figured what the hell, why not just make the page “mine”, title it with my pen name. That way it encompasses both blogs, plus whatever else I want to do with it; at the moment, it has kind of replaced my actual profile because I’ve been using it to share stuff from other pages, and linked to a few posts here.
I’ll probably upload a few pics there to, over time, but I doubt it’ll be any sort of focus for me. Seems for some people, the FB pages are all they’re doing (i.e. it’s used as a sort of blog, in and of itself). In my case though, it’s more about being a small extension of the two blogs I’ve got set up here on wordpress.
I’ll probably like using twitter… I’ve got a thing for quotes, so as far as that goes it’s actually a very nifty platform. But it’s the same with twitter as it is with the FB page, it’s not so much a thing in itself as an extension of whatever I’ve got going on right here, where you’re reading this post. All the same, feel free to follow me on twitter, or “like” the FB page 🙂 .
Oh, and one other thing: I’ll probably be playing around with other themes a little bit here. I started out with a different one than this current theme (Manifest), and while I kind of like the clean, simple, minimalistic look of each (whatever I was using before, and this one), there are others I think I’d like to try out too.
The one downside of the themes I’ve used so far: they’re not designed to accommodate widgets (at least not to my satisfaction), so that’s something I’ll be looking for if I do decide to change to another one.
I’d apologize for the “social-networking-centric” nature of the post, because I think it’s kind of lazy, but a) I’m sick of second guessing myself here, b) I tend to agree with what Suzie said in one of her recent posts about apologizing for what you’ve got to say, and c) gotta (re)start somewhere.
Every time I write something out, it’s not good enough by the time I’m bored with it and I end up not posting anything, so I’m going to go back to the “fuck it” mentality for a while. It might not always make for the best quality… but I did say (to myself as much as to others) that the writing and blogging stuff was going to be a messy business.
