I need to write more. I like writing, but I’ve not done much since Scope and can feel myself getting more workmanlike. The key is probably this blog — I need to get back into the habit of posting. The trouble is, I just don’t like it very much right now.
I need to spend some quality time with Movable Type 4, getting this site design (and crucially the typography) to the stage where it’s sufficiently pretty that I want to write text to show it off. Things like the old swash-italic drop caps used to spur me to pick opening words I knew looked sensational — notably not ‘I,’ which looked rubbish. And I need to re-impose Markdown formatting, because practically everything I type these days is Markdown.
I also need to fix the comment system. It’s working right now, but people seem scared off by the new default ‘isn’t actually a user registration scheme, but sure looks like one’ behaviour. Plus, published comments look like crap.
Finally, I’m taking more pictures with my N95 (it’s a rubbish phone, so I might as well use it as a camera), but uploading pictures is still more hassle than I’d like. I need to sort that — and ideally get to the stage where I can moblog properly.
Oh, and it pisses me off that my Facebook status lines are trapped within Facebook, so I might start doing Twitter -> (Facebook & blog).
Time to sweep everything away and start over, I think.
