Re: Mobile Versions of Websites

One of my clients has been adding mobile versions of his sites. What he is doing is taking is http://www.domainname.com and putting a mobile site on m.domainname.com . But I REALLY like the idea of having the site detect mobile devices and taking people there automatically. But I also do worry that ...

Re: Time to start a blog?

For a writer, I think a blog should be mandatory. Something like requiring Lance Armstrong to own at least one bicycle.

I used to have about 70 blogs on Blogger . Rather than use their bandwidth I set up domains and hosting and just used Blogger as a "publishing" platform for my blogs. It was free, it worked well, and was easy to use for the most part. Then Blogger decided about a year ago that they didn't want to s...

Re: Your Favorite Book on the Craft

How to Write Science Fiction & Fantasy by Orson Scott Card This is the first and only book I have read about writing, but I think there is much for even non-sci-fi writers to enjoy. In reading this book I felt if I had sat down with Card and listened as he gave me personal advice. He also shares au...
