Blog Work

This has been sort of an odd day. I worked on blog issues today. I added several links to this blog, which required some simple HTML work. Fortunately, last year, I completed a basic course in HTML online through About.com. It was an interesting study, and I was pleased to work through it and understand it. Of course, I have done nothing with it since then, so I assumed I would not remember much, if any, of it. I was surprised to discover that I recalled quite a bit of it, once I began looking at the HTML of this blog. I should try to find all my notes from the class, to use here.

I plan to add some photos and graphics to my blog, but have not taken the time to work on those aspects, yet. I did want to post some short writings I have done in the past, but didn't want them to be scattered throughout this blog, showing up only by date posted. So, I set up a separate blog just for the writings and linked the blogs to each other.

Yesterday, I received an invitation to write an article for another blog, and I spent some time today doing that. I assume it will be accepted and posted, perhaps at the end of this week. However, I do not believe my public writings are very interesting to anyone else, so it may be the only article I am invited to write for another blog. If so, that's okay -- I'll probably write some things for my own amusement from time to time and post them on my other blog.

I read a few chapters today in the science fiction book I'm currently reading -- Polaris, by Jack McDevitt. This is the second book by this author that I've read, the first being Chindi. The fact that I cannot recall anything about that first book indicates to me that I am not a strong fan of his. So far, I haven't decided whether I really like Polaris. I have already purchased a third book by McDevitt -- Seeker. If I am unimpressed by Polaris, I may not even read Seeker, but will just donate it to the public library. But, if I finally get into Polaris, I'll give Seeker a try. I have way too many other books, by authors I really enjoy, to spend time on books for which I have only a marginal interest. In fact, I'd much rather re-read good books I've already read, than to waste my time on books that don't really grab me.

Other than the above, I don't feel like I've accomplished much today. It was somewhat an odd day.
