Website Updates

I’ve recently made a number of updates to this website. Highlights include: Adding a Patreon, in case anyone enjoys or values this blog enough to want to support it financially (click the link at the end of this post).

2018: First Year of the New Blog

2018: First Year of the New Blog

A short look back on my blogging over 2018. I started blogging again in April 2018.

Twitter follow button added

I am now on Twitter. I admit to not being a huge fan of Twitter – short form entries are not my favoured means of communication and I’m dubious about whether it does more social good than harm. However, it appears to all but essential as part of communicating effectively in the modern age. If you are also on Twitter, you can follow me using the link to the right.
