Email posting & gmail

This is a great idea. Blogger allows me to post by simply sending an email to a special address. The subject of my email make the title of the post. Easy.

I’ve just started using gmail and I have to say it is by far the best email system I have used. Ful marks to Google on a great piece of work and perhaps in the future they will integrate it further with Blogger. It’s fast and easy to use, so much better than the cumbersome Hotmail. I was sent the invitation to gmail from Robert Beveridge, who I chat to on a mailing list now and again. His excellent website can be found here.

One problem, however. Using the email feature results in some very odd things happening to line breaks. Oh dear.

First Past the Post

Well, this is the first post to my website.

I’ll hopefully be posting plenty of messages to the site, mainly about books but sometimes about politics and computers too. Maybe the odd excerpt from my life, now and again. hopefully people will find this interesting, but if not it will make a nice record of how things are going for my own use.

Please feel free to make comments.

The title, for those that are interested, is from Jonathon Coe’s novel. I recommend it.
I’ll be posting loads of links both in the body of posts and also in a permanent list somewhere on this screen. In the meantime why not head over to Palimpsest – a great website. But then I would say that, as I am involved in running it!
