Web Logging

After pondering yesterday about what exactly to do with this domain, I believe that I have reached a conclusion. I am going to blog!

Ho, ho” I hear you chortle “very droll” – but read on…

Do you know where the term “blog” comes from? Back in the day, it was derived from two words – web log, and a blog was essentially a record of interesting links – snippets from the wider Interworld. It took time for blogs to grow into the self-appreciation centres that they have largely become and the original web log seems to have drifted into the Links List or Blogroll.

At some point yesterday I conceived of  WOOL | gathered as a hub to all my activities online. I also mentioned scrapbooking stuff. It took a while to put things together but I now see that I am leaning towards a form of web log.

What comes around, goes around, eh?

If I can get the Lifestream plugin working efficiently, that page will offer the shorthand version and keep those in a hurry up to date. The posts here will be a longer hand and chattier version linking together what is happening elsewhere with some random stuff that lives only here.

My head is not quite clear yet, so don’t worry if you are confused, I’ll get things clarified at some point. Thus far, I know this about what will happen here:

  1. I want it to be visual
  2. I need it to be brief
  3. It will most likely feature multiple posts on any given date, or none at all – definitely not one feature post a day
  4. One category will probably be Dear Diary.

Where do all these yawning gaps come from? Aha – this time I have the answer – I have been busy updating Scattered Thoughts! After a couple of very long posts, time and energy were lacking for coming here to write and as little else had happened other than a shopping delivery or two, it seemed unimportant.Also spending far too much time at Facebook, which I am trying to give up but it keeps onContinue readingHere, there, everywhere – and nowhere at all

The Cold Light of Day

The Cold Light of Day

Nell’s excessive drinking and urination have ramped up considerably. Hence I was outside at a little past 2 am this morning, by which time the car was already covered in a sparkling frost. On the 6 am toilet run, the world was looking fairly well white all over (as viewed through the window from my bed, that is). When we first came house-hunting around here there was snow on the ground (apparently a once inContinue readingThe Cold Light of Day

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
