Are you a member of the πŸ•ΈπŸ’ IndieWeb Webring? Today I added a page for Terms of Use and Frequently Asked Questions!

The webring has mostly been churning along on its own, with a few folks adding themselves here and there. A couple of times folks have shown up in IndieWeb chat to let me know about sites that break the webring, or when they ran into other issues.

Hopefully this page answers some of the more common things that come up. The TL;DR version? The webring is more proof-of-concept than robust-community-service. I’ll do my best, but can’t make any promises! πŸ˜…

If you have any questions that aren’t addressed there, please let me know!

Doing the necessary on Christmas Day.

If you like, there may still be time for you to listen to Mariah Carey in a non-stop remix until this age of merciless celebration has passed.

Been thinking about all the trips, events, and other random things about which I’ve collected photos, video, and more over the last few years. So many things I keep meaning to write up, some of them now out of date.

This seems like exactly the kind of thing that could benefit from being called a “project”, and thankfully the new year is the perfect one for it.

So the theme for my website will be “Hindsight” for 2020. πŸ™ƒπŸ˜†

So grateful to have been a part of this ridiculously talented Magnet Musical level 2 class. Thanks so much to Nikita and Frank for teaching, guiding, and lifting us up musically.

Special thanks to Regular Sweater Friends for a relatable and whip-smart set about the dubious dream to go to an Ivy League school. ❀️

I just achieved Inbox Zero for the first time in I don’t know how long. πŸŽ‰

GMail inbox indicating that no unread messages were found. FastMail inbox indicating no unread messages were found.

I feel compelled to commemorate this moment, so here we are.

(now, at 4:30pm, I can finally start working on one of the many things I am tracking in a half-dozen different TODO-management systems… 😬)
