It’s been really interesting going through an old book like this and systematically posting everything I can. I have more, so after a short break I’ll begin again on Myrtle.
“In some ways this would be a return to what I did a few years ago with my Gospel of the Trees site, which arose because what I wanted to say about trees just couldn’t be made to fit into a book, in part because it refused to become a linear narrative or argument and in part because it was so image-dependent and book publishers don’t like the cost of that. But the advantage of a tag over a standalone site is that each post can have other tags as well, which lead down other paths of reflection and information, in a Zettelkasten sort of way.”
“I had a personal realization recently: kottke.org isn’t so much a thing I’m making but a process I’m going through. A journey.”
I have been reorganising my site a bit. I decided to use the WordPress Portfolio system, which allows you to build a network of pages showcasing work. I thought it might free up some time and energy as there is so much built in functionality there.
It’s early days yet, but I have changed some of the menu above to reflect the changes. You can see the full portfolio pages here.
As well as giving each project it’s own page the system provides specific pages for tags and types so as I add more things the possibilities of how things can be viewed and juxtaposed increases, which I find very interesting.
Here’s a few different groupings below to give you an idea:
Like I said it’s early days. As I ass more things hopefully it’ll fill out more.
Also I am toying of upgrading my WordPress so I can sell stuff directly from here instead of Big Cartel and that should enable more to do some more CSS modification of the site.
Follow my blog with Bloglovin if you like that sort of thing.
Since the very sad and untimely demise of Google Reader I have been using Feedly to read and sort the large amount of blog and RSS feeds I follow.
But still I missed the hive mind collaborative and interactive nature of Reader, being able to leave comments on posts and see what other people were reading. I am aware thereis a payment level on Feedly that allows one to do something similar, but I am in the early stages of making my work profitable in some form so such expenditure is out of the question at this stage and by its nature one would be only interacting with a small, exclusive commmunity.
Bloglovin seem to be, at this stage, to have the potential of having a simile sharing platform to Reader. You can follow, comment and collate blog posts into collections of particular subjects which echoes the nature of Flipboard. And it all links to your profile and your own blog. Theref providing a potential for a great network of blogs, people, connections and recommendations to those of a similar mind and compulsions.
I recommend giving it a try and please follow me there to see what I get up to.
I have now uploaded a newly scanned and cleaned up version of my webcomic, Horticultural Fudge to this website. It’s all layed out nicely on one page for ease of reading.
It’s a simple wordless story of gardening, flowers and retribution.
A version of this story will be available to buy as a print at the Bristol South Bank Arts Trail next weekend, and in due course, they’ll be available here too.
If you enjoy this comic you might also like to try Fudge and The Garden Of Eartly Delights also available to read on this website.
As of tomorrow my personal website will only be listed under paulgreer.net.
(It remains a work in progress).
Many thanks and Happy Spring!
I updated my front page with some GIFs, to jazz it up a bit, but also to simplify and to give people a better first impression of what I am about.
I’m a bit concerned the loading time might be affected by the heavy file size.
Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.
