With apologies for the extreme degree of meta.

If you’re one of the three or four people who follows my blog, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been posting daily for the past full month. That’s a first in my blog’s 15+ year history.

I wanted to do this in part because the four sections of my site — blog, microblog, photoblog, and audioblog — are finally well-separated. Each has its own landing page and RSS feed; my home page aggregates all content and offers a feed to match.
