About this site
The idea behind making this site was that it would give our friends and families a way to sort of keep up with us and easily look at pictures of our big adventure in San Francisco. However, I know I’m a bad blogger, because I’ve done it before and failed. I think I’m too easily distracted. So I’ve tried to create something that will update as easily as possible.
To the right of this column, what you’re seeing is a bunch of RSS (really simple syndication) feeds. I’m using feeds from del.icio.us help show what we’ve been up to. For example, if we eat somewhere, I’ll just go to the website and tag it. Simple as that. You can even roll over the link and see notes I’ve made, which is neat. I’ve also got a Twitter feed up there, and we’ll see how long I keep up with that.
I’m using Flickr to post pictures here, but I’m not giving up on Kodak Gallery. Although all their uploading software seems to be totally buggy, if I want to order prints, I’m going to use them — I like the nice white borders that I can get with them. Plus, I’ve got photos up there from years and years ago, back when it was Ofoto. If you didn’t ever see our move photos, this is where they are.
I’ll also point here that the picture at the top of this page is one I took when we were on a night cruise to Alcatraz. I keep thinking I’ll take a nice sunny landscape pic and put it up there, but I can’t seem to get much more San Francisco than a photo that includes two big landmarks like the Coit Tower and the Transamerica Tower.
Finally, you can subscribe if you’re, you know, really interested in keeping up. You can sign up for e-mail updates by clicking here, and there’s also an RSS feed.
I guess that’s it. Let me know if you have any suggestions. But, remember, I’m lazy, so they’ve got to be easy to implement.
