Two New Blogging Projects

Coinciding with the official move of my blogging activity from my previous blog (https://themisathena.wordpress.com/) to this one — and to start into the new year — I have come up with two new blogging projects:

 

1. Diversity Bingo

This is in support of my Around the World reading project, which hasn’t quite seen the progress it should have had in 2020 (though fortunately it didn’t come to stall entirely, either).  I’m aiming at getting through the categories within the space of this year, though this isn’t set in stone … if it takes longer, it takes longer.  Here are the bingo card and the categories — fellow travelers welcome!  (My master update post can be found HERE.)

 

2. An Alphabet of My Likes and Dislikes

The second project is something I saw in BeetleyPete‘s blog and liked so much that I decided I’ll have a go at it, too — not least because it may also serve as an introduction to those of you who haven’t been following me for a long time yet: an alphabet of (some of) my likes and dislikes.  (I hope Pete won’t be angry at me for stealing his idea … as you know, Pete, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!)  Similar to another moderately recent post of mine, I won’t be selecting any topics / likes and dislikes that you can easily glean from the contents of my blog anyway — such as the fact that I own am owned by two adorable 3 1/2 year old tomcats and that I love books, music, movies, tea, photography and traveling — but for each letter of the alphabet I’ll try to come up with something that defines me as a person in one way or another. 

Pete completed his project on the basis of one post per day, and with likes and dislikes separately … I don’t think I’ll have quite the stamina to spread it out this much, so I’ll combine both likes and dislikes in a single post.  (I’ll try to do one a day, but it is possible that life is going to intervene and I won’t be able to stick entirely to that schedule.)

The project’s sole organizing principle is going to be the alphabetical order; “likes” and “dislikes” for the same letter of the alphabet are almost certainly not going to be connected topically (or if they are, it’s merely going to be a coincidence.)

The project’s master update post can be found HERE.

 

Note: Like all master posts for my blogging projects, those for these two projects can also be accessed from the link contained in the sidebar of my blog.

  1. Just so you know, when I visit your site and try to leave a comment I can’t and get an error notice of “invalid security token”. I am leaving this comment from the wp reader.

    I’ve been having the same problem at IrresponsibleReader, another self-hosted place.

    1. Thanks for letting me know. It may be a systems issue — I actually do have a https protocol, but it doesn‘t seem to be recognized by either WP or my hosting service (I‘m betting on WP, as the hosting service is where I got the https protocol to begin with.)

      Others who had the same problem initially (e.g., BT) seem to have overcome it eventually, but I don’t know precisely how … I only see that they are now able to comment.

      At any rate, I don‘t (currently) have any blog-specific limitations on commenting in place … sigh.
