I went a bit crazy with Indieweb plugins and services to begin with. The fervour of the new follower. I’m cutting out the stuff I don’t need now or the the things that just don’t work the way I want them to. Manual seems best for some things.
Sharing Swarm/Foursquare checkins back to WordPress has been a really frustrating experience so I’m going to stop doing them. It seems a nice way in theory to record visits to special places the but the faffing about is not worth the trouble. I’m going to post photos and perhaps add locations via the Simple Location plugin from now on.

Logged into 750words today after recent reminders that it’s still going. I did five months of almost daily writing there back in 2010 and then stopped. My stuff is still all there. I think I would find the service more useful now so I’m going to start again.
I finished reading The Spy Who Came In From The Cold and realise now that I should have waited a while after watching the 1965 film version. The plot twist was still very fresh in my mind and a lot of the dialogue was used word for word in the screenplay. It felt a bit of a chore despite being an excellent book.
