Apologies for not writing more about my travels. This post is a quick break to add a couple of notes on the running of the blog, and questions on how to improve it.
Is the length of each blog post alright? It’s hard for me to judge, as so far I’ve been pretty much writing all of it on my phone, so it feels hugely long and overly verbose. How is it for you guys?
They’re going to come slowly for a while, as I need a pc to upload them. Are there too many, not enough? Also, you should be able to click on them to enlarge them, and they all have a mouse-over alt-text.
So far, the only effective methods of keeping updated with the blog are:
1. Check it often.
2. Be friends with me on facebook, and I’ll tell you.
3. Use the RSS feed on the right. This is the most effective, but only if you have, or want to set up, a RSS feed reader.
I’m looking into setting up email notifications, but I don’t really know the best way to do so.
I don’t know what it’s like trying to leave comments on here. Carly, for one, had issues with it. Please persevere with it, I very much enjoy hearing from you. I think as it currently stands, the first comment you make has to be approved by me (and none have been rejected yet), and then any further ones get uploaded instantly. That doesn’t give you carte blanche, and it’s not a challenge! I don’t know whether you get updated when I reply to comments, but I’ve been replying to most of them, so check back often!
I want to add a map with my route on it, like Laura and Carly have. Anyone know how to do that?
So, talk to me! Sound off in the comments below, and tell me how to make this better!
