In the vein of uncomplicating things, I have this TypePad account ripe for posting and publishing. Self-hosting is a laudable goal but I'm far too distracted by set-up. So hello. Here I am. More is to come. Continue reading

I decided to start a new blog. Yes, I already have like three blogs. And no, it doesn't even have a fancy design or it's own domain. I thought maybe I would just start typing and see how it goes. When I was writing for nanowrimo, I realized how much... Continue reading

I slipped into a hot bath tonight, thinking of you. All those moments, lost but not lost. Beads of sweat sliding down my face like tears. I looked up and blinked blearily. The water was cold. Time marches on without us. Continue reading

it's so hard. work bullshit is the most insidious kind of bullshit in my opinion, it just seeps in slowly and suddenly you're drowning at it. I both love and love to mock the 7 Habits (while muttering about damn mormons under my breath). But I took a winter course on it in college, and the principles are totally right on and stick with me. Think I might need to go pull out my book tonight. but i think awareness is the first and most important step, so i'm glad you're seeing it and backing away slowly!

You are indeed the best food blogger. also the best blogger of all times. I actually wish more recipes were like this. You know, do some stuff then eat the shit out of it. Unless you are making a souffle or Cassoulet D'Artagnan (which i found by googling martha stewart and fancy french) then you probably have a pretty good idea how to make the damn thing and just needed some inspiration. in conclusion, pls to be getting your own tv show so you can inspire me triply while i chat with you, read your blog AND watch your reruns on hgtv. kthx!

i wonder if it's exhausting, being so awesome? that's rhetorical, as i'm sure it is (just look at foxy and dixie) :) i bought my tacos from my neighbors, but i still like to think we're twinsies.

Are you going to go to Wordpress, which uses the same editor as the one you are so adamant against? Or to Squarespace with the old editor that has the spacing and crashing issues? Or perhaps you'll just roll your own custom CMS and show TypePad how easy it is?

I no longer work at SixApart, so I speak here as a paying customer, just like everyone else. Even when I did work for SixApart, I didn't have to "approve of" everything that was implemented, but I do know both sides of the story. I see the bitching about things as they are, I see the bitching if things get changed, I see the bitching if things go back, and I see a lot of people who feel entitled. FWIW Wordpress uses the same base editor as the new Typead editor that you're all bitching about. Drupal doesn't have a built in text editor. Squarespace uses the same base editor as TypePad's old one, and has the same issues we heard about so many times. So while everyone can talk all they want about taking their toys and leaving, you may want to consider that SixApart employees do actually give a shit and TRY to help everyone, despite company decisions outside their control. Good luck finding that elsewhere.

Thanks for listening! Generally no one like change, but it's nice to feel heard.
