Quick update. I’ve turned on two new features on my blog.
First, I’ve added a WordPress plugin called Lifestream, which basically creates an activity log of stuff that I’m doing online. If you’re familiar with FriendFeed it’s basically the same thing, except that it’s self-hosted. There are two places it shows up. One is on my sidebar (the right side of my page) and the other is on a dedicated page. Right now the page lists my most recent actions, but I’m planning on trying to figure out how to have archives going back further than that (just in case I need to dig up something older). I disabled this feature. You can follow me on Twitter if you’d like to know what’s going on in my life.
The other thing I added was a contact page, which is a basic “fill this form out and I will be emailed” type thing. It’s another WordPress plugin. I used to have my email address listed on my blog, but I was getting way too much spam, so I took it off. This page should be a better solution for me. You can still comment on my posts, but some people might want to ask a question without it appearing on the web. That makes sense to me.
Take a look at both of them and let me know what you think.
