So, I’ve been playing with different programs to update the blog. I usually write my draft in OpenOffice, then copy and paste it over to the webeditor, but that’s … aesthetically displeasing to me. MS Word is pretty good for it, but I haven’t ever gotten around to buying a copy of MSOffice, and my trial ran out again. (Grrr, poverty.)
Today I discovered Windows Live Writer, which I like a lot lo far. It gives me a really, really good idea of what my posts will look like when I’m done (insasmuch as that even matters), and pasting images from my computer or the web is much easier. I’m not sure yet, but I think I can even set it up to update my livejournal, too, which would be neat. I really hate the LJ webeditor.
Today I also discovered the Stats tracker on this blog. First: I’m an idiot and I’ve been tracking my own pageviews, so the count is practically meaningless (I only use this thing twelve times a day to keep up on my blogroll). But! Not wholly meaningless! People from as far away as Russia and South Africa have visited! That’s awesome! Hello out there! (::waves vigorously::) Folks from China, the UK, and Latvia have come by! (And of, course, many Americans … almost all of whom might actually be me.) It’s very, very exciting to me to have had visitors from not the US. I can’t really explain why (that whole crazy thing).
Also, most of my viewers come from Facebook (which doesn’t surprise me) and that my altar is the most interesting thing I’ve written about so far. So there will definitely be more of that.
