Placemarkers: A New Way to Travel

Sunday, October 1st, 2006

I’m going to try out something new here and see how it goes. I won’t be doing any long-term travel for awhile but I still enjoy having this blog and want to keep it going even though most of my writing (besides Written Road) is being done offline. My curiosity in topics like the concept of home, bookstore tourism and volunteer vacations will continue to thrive whether I’m traveling or not, so I’ve decided to start Placemarkers — a weekly collection of links to interesting tidbits from places around the world, either far away or in my very own backyard.

Lost in Place Housekeeping

Saturday, October 15th, 2005

I did some tinkering with the site tonight, so if you get bombarded with updated posts in your aggregator, sorry! Here are the exciting details of what’s new at Lost in Place:

I updated the About Me section, added the Why Am I Lost? explanation and finally added some photos of me with the folks. (Scroll down on the About Me page to see the pixs.)

I’ve decided to keep categories to the bare minimum, so I will only use places, and most posts will be categorized under where I am living or traveling at a particular moment. I’ve done away with “etc.” and other subcategories that were starting to make me feel like I am micro-managing my thoughts. I’ll just use places. It’s just easier, and that’s what this blog is all about anyway.

Also, there is a feed for comments on the blog, just wanted to point that out.

Oh, and as far as I can tell there is no spell-checker on this blog software, so sorry in advance for the typos, I know I won’t catch them all.

Thanks for reading!
