I’ve finally gone and done it; I’ve switched to Textpattern.
It has been one of those weeks struck upon in your 20s, when you are visiting friends that quite possibly will never enter your life again as they begin new phases in their lives (this year’s theme is the master’s degree completion). Many people who I haven’t heard from in quite some time read the Parlor here daily, which has me taken aback. I never really pay that much attention to the site logs. More importantly, these friends told me that they (unconsciously) never bother to call or email as they just come to the site for updates on how I’m doing. All of them mentioned how they would love to leave comments.
Coincidentally, I’ve been writing a report on online community building at work, where I’ve been stressing the importance of the company to have an open acknowledgment and dialog with their audience. See where this is going?
Now that I’ve managed to get the ‘practice what I preach’ daily lesson out of the way, I decided this morning to make this site more open for community. I now have the ability for commenting, and a much easier interface with which to manage my creativity.
I don’t like to drink alone in my Parlor all the time. Now, you can all join me once in awhile.
You can also browse through the Parlor archives.
