Blog Changes

Some changes to this blog. Firstly, for the benefit of random passers-by and friends from my LiveJournal days, I’ve allowed all viewers to comment blog posts, rather than just registered Blogger users.

Secondly, I found a new tool for updating the blog. It’s called Blogger for Word and it’s quite a useful tool. It adds a toolbar to MS Word, allowing you to post directly from it. This may well replace mail2blog for me as my main posting tool. It can be downloaded here.
Update: While I can make it work with Word 2000 and Word XP, I can’t seem to get it to work with Word 2003. How annoying.
Update 2: It seems this tool does work with Word 2003 after all, it just didn’t work for me on the first try. Oh well.

Finally, as you can probably tell from the tags I’ve added to old posts, I’ve joined Technorati. Technorati is an internet search engine/community of web logs and one of the tools they provide is the tagging of blog posts for easier searching. I’ll see how it goes, tagging is currently a manual process in Blogger, but it’s no great shakes.

Oh, and I now use Bloglines to aggregate my newsfeeds, so that I now when various blogs and news sites have updated without having to visit them all.
