To slow my mind down today, I sorted, I quilted, I struggled with a poem, I listened to Lessa whose SUV didn’t pass smog, and I sorted my links on the other blog, Postcards.
Just as Open Diary, (OD), has its Favorites list, Google now has a service called Google Reader. If a blog on either list has been updated, it is now in bold type. Very handy. But not all my favorites blogs and sites are on either of these lists. Most of them run down the side of my Postcards page, and I use them there.
If you are a responsible blogger….and sometimes I am, you have to check your links. Are they still active? Are you led into 404 territory? Are the links your links contain all dead. It’s the perfect activity for one whose brain is negatively overactive. That’s always me when told to come in for a second or third mammogram especially at a hospital I never go to.
I checked my liner links…ship links, watery links. And there’s a lot.
I always read Tugster, for instance. Not only do I get to find out the latest New York Harbor news, or 6th boro as Tugster calls it, I’m enchanted by the boats and ships, and museums within his bailiwick. He showed fascinating screen captures of New York harbor during Irene’s arrival. I also confess, after being led off on a happy tangents by Maritime Matters and Shipspotting, I didn’t finish the watery links this day.
I think I’m going to be in even deeper trouble when I get to the cooking links.
