Hard work, perseverance pays off

Recently I’ve been putting more effort into publishing entries at earthpages.ca. At the beginning, I’d written a book and just wanted to get it out there. A nice soul suggested that if I wanted anyone to read it, I’d better illustrate it and add more paragraphs. I followed his advice and, over the years, am finally striking a good balance among readability, layout and detail.

Nowadays I tend to take more time writing for earthpages.ca. It’s been gratifying to see my stories hit the news headlines. If you click on this image you’ll see that I’m up there with Harvard and UCLA Law stories!

Back in the RSS..?

Huh? I’m just being stupid. Playing on the old Beatles song because I couldn’t think of anything else to call this post.

Just wanted to say that I probably will be emailing and posting less personal Facebook updates as I’ve come back to an old love… RSS feeds! I don’t know why I stopped looking at my feeds for so long. I suppose it had something to do with moving up to Windows 7 from WinXP a few years ago. My favorite feedreader (RSS Reader) used to work great on XP. Even better on Win98.

Anyhow, I managed to get it going on Windows 7 after downloading some old Windows supplements.

I love it! There’s something about finding alternative news in categories of interest that really turns my crank. Feels like you can weed thru all the crap and find the real story.

To make things even better, I’ve started up a new Facebook page and feed where I’ll be posting the stories. So you can see what I’ve been up to here (right column) and at earthpages.org and earthpages.ca.

I’m hoping, of course, this will increase my traffic, which has been holding steady but not quite bringing the house down.

Enjoy!
