So long for now

Everyone goes through changes in life. When I started this blog, my kids were very young, not even in school yet. My work situation was more stable and predictable. And everything was new and exciting as far as blogging goes. I’ve been doing this for six and a half years, and I think it’s […]

Site issues

Several of you have mentioned that you’re getting messages on Internet Explorer that my site is trying to run some sort of script that is slowing down your computer or otherwise causing problems accessing this site. First, I apologize for the problems. I’ve been unsuccessful trying to debug this problem myself, so I have […]

Writer’s Block

I haven’t had any interest in writing lately. My guess is that it’s just writer’s block, and will pass eventually.

Blog interrupted

I’ve closed the comments on my previous post because it looks like any constructive discussion that might have taken place there has been exhausted, and now I’m getting a number of racist comments. I’ve tried to delete the worst of them; if I missed any, I apologize.

As you all know by now, the […]

Do you like The Peoria Chronicle?

Several people have mentioned that they wish my blog posts had a Facebook “Like” button on them. So, I did a little searching and found a WordPress plug-in that adds that functionality to my site. You’ll see now that there’s a “Like” button at the bottom of each post.

I hope you like it! 🙂

Posting will be light

As regular readers of my blog know, this is the busy season for me at work, so posting will be light for the next few weeks. I’ll still try to post when I can, though.

Peoria Chronicle now on Facebook

Have you noticed that familiar logo on my sidebar? Yep, the Peoria Chronicle now has an official Facebook page, and you can become a fan! For those of you who live on Facebook, this is an easy way to be alerted whenever there’s a new post here on the Chronicle.

Peoria Chronicle now on Twitter

Another new thing for 2010 is that I’m now on Twitter @PeoriaChronicle. Follow me and you can be among the first to find out when new articles are posted and get additional updates.

New year, new theme

For 2010, I thought I’d change to a new WordPress theme. This one is called “Atahualpa” and I think it’s more readable than the old theme. Plus, it has a rotating header image, so each time you reload the page, you’ll randomly get one of five different images of Peoria. I’ll probably add more […]

Hi, how are you? Long time, no see!

Wow, I just realized after I published my last post that it has been over a week since I last posted to the blog. Did you miss me? Things have been busy at work, but my project is finished now, so I should be able to start posting again.

Did I miss anything this […]
