ScribeFire 1.4.2

Careful, this is going to get geeky.  I’ll try to do something less so toward the end to round it out.

Been a long time since I sat down here to post. Works been beatin’ me up pretty hard. But I had a short chat with the new Bossmann today (don’t get those very often) and it was inspiring.

If anything can motivate me to post on my blog, however, it’s something geeky. Like ScribeFire. I was perusing Kimsal’s brother’s blog after coming home this evening from watching “Unsere Erde” at Cinemax this evening with Sarah & Tammy & Matthias.  I noticed a little “powered by ScribeFire” thingie in his post and was immediately intrigued.

So much so that I’m using ScribeFire to write this very post.  It appears to be a built-into-your-browser WYSIWYG (and plain text for those of us who do their own HTML) editor offering compatibility with different popular blog formats (WordPress, Blogger, etc.) through your blog’s API.  It’s got lots of integration with other web services out there, such as bookmarks and technorati tagging and neat stuff like that.  I don’t use those things too terribly much (but maybe I should).  I suppose its biggest perk is offering a standardized — and yet usable — GUI for me the writer, no matter how many different blogging services I use.  It’s true; I only have one, but I have hope that I’ll discover that this nifty Firefox add-on will let me skirt the awful comments form on Blogger-hosted blogs.  Those things are so awful.  I thought Google tried not to be evil — seems like they missed the boat there.

And now for the less geeky part…here’s one of the pro photos from my sister’s wedding in December.  I’m really looking forward to seeing the rest of them.
