Posting elsewhere

Even though there’s not much activity here, that doesn’t mean I’ve been sitting on my hands. As we continue to get MetroCascade up and running, I’m not just curating content on that site (by bookmarking local mainstream news items to a separate Diigo feed, for example) or by hunting for additional Victoria, BC online sources. I’m also posting occasional updates to the MetroCascade blog, and I post unusual event notices to the MetroCascade Events blog.


  1. I am well familiar with this issue of dividing issues. Though I find it great to open up all these side projects myself, I find myself not enjoying the idea of dividing my content so much. My current website is the amalgamation of 3 different websites and gets the updates of all three. The focus might seem hodge podge compared to how it was before but really it’s all me, so there is some consistency in that at least. Maintaining several websites is a lot of work.

    There are still more websites that I maintain but at least it is 3 or 4 instead of 6 or 7. More manageable.

  2. True – and now, it’s not just maintaining your own websites, but also making sure that you’re showing your face on FB or making noises on Twitter (not to mention Identica or Jaiku or Friendfeed or …whatever!) For me, it’s a question of what’s efficient/ what works in terms of creativity. I’m not especially strategic in this regard…

  3. Absolutely. I like that Facebook allows you to import your XML/RSS feed. I also like that Flickr will allow you to post to your blog (provided your software can handle it – WordPress and Movable Type can for sure). I don’t like that Flickr doesn’t want to post the photo to my website (it references itself for the photo) because I like to keep those eggs in MY basket. I’d love a better photo interface for Movable Type that would allow me to do the reverse (post photo-blog updates to flickr) and I would assume one day that will happen. For now there’s a couple new buttons in iPhoto 09 – Post to Flickr and Post to Facebook. I’m liking where this is all headed but we’re not quite there yet..
