Lazy Sunday

This is probably going to be the laziest post ever on this blog since I only have a few minutes to do it. As I mentioned previously, with many things I have going on during the holiday season, I’m not going to have as much time to post detailed articles. But I do still plan to post daily, so keep your eyes peeled! I expect things to return to what passes for “normal” on this blog early next year.

Formats and Things

It seems the question “How long can I keep this up?” has an answer: not for much longer! That doesn’t mean I am going away, though. We’re entering that time of year when people go on vacations, spend time with friends and family, and celebrate various holidays. As I am not a complete shut-in, I will also be pretty busy. I expect that from November 21st until around January 9th, updates to this site won’t be quite what they used to be.

Four Weeks and Counting

I have now made a new post every day for the past 30 days. Wow. As usual, not much to see here unless you just like reading about my process, for some reason. I still have a logo being developed. I am reluctant to move forward with publicizing this blog until I have a good visual identity for it. I don’t even have a favicon or anything right now. It has been quite an experience so far, though.

A Third Week, and Into November

This is one of my usual self-indulgent Sunday posts. Not much to see here, move along! I haven’t made any major site changes this past week. At least, not for anything terribly visible. I don’t think I ever gave a full accounting of the plugins I’m using. In case it is useful to anyone else, here’s a listing of what I’m using and what purpose it serves: * [Akismet ](https://wordpress.

A Fortnight and Change(s)

Two weeks into this blog project, I’m still not certain how I will fare attempting to do this long-term. Working full-time takes a lot of energy, and I don’t always feel up to making a post here. Nevertheless, I do it anyway. I’m not willing to slap up any old post. Most of them require at least a little research. All of them require a fair amount of thought, and as I write these later in the evening, my brain is not terribly happy with being forced to do more work.

Some modifications

This is not worthy of a full post, so I’m going to try out the “aside” feature. All posts thus far have been modified to have a cut, so the main page doesn’t show full text on every post anymore. This will make browsing for particular posts easier, and better support future theme changes in which posts are listed as a header image and a blurb. I also added sharing and favorite buttons for more social media goodness, for anyone who might like to use them.

One Week In

It’s officially a week since I started this blog. Sunday seems like as good a day as any to write about the blog itself–a low-traffic day is the best time for self-indulgence, right? I’ve not yet figured out what the day to day rotation should be. Maybe there shouldn’t be one. I’ve settled on Saturday as “link roundup” day, and perhaps Sunday works for posts like this, where I discuss the blog itself–what I’ve done, what I plan to do in the future.

Obligatory Inaugural Post

Welcome to Resilient Constructs, the blog with the pretentious name! This is one of my little corners of the Internet. It’s not the first and not likely to be the last. Here, my intention is to discuss and analyze current events–politics, economics, culture, science, and so forth. What makes me such an authority? Well, nothing, really. I just read and think a lot. If you don’t like what I have to say, I’m sure you can find something more to your liking elsewhere.
