Catching up - Ink Blog entries

I've been super-slow in getting my recent columns from the London Free Press posted to the blog. They seem to have changed the way they update the columnist pages on Canoe.ca, which has resulted in my page there going stale.

Bummer, I know. But I'll just pick up the slack on this blog.

I have back-posted the entries from August and September. Since the newspaper's archived links to my older longer-form pieces have also been broken by the latest updates, I'll be gradually moving the full content here and changing the sidebar links to point internally. This promises to be a pretty sizeable chunk of work, so I'll proceed in pieces over the next few weeks and let you know when it's done.

Thanks for your patience. I'll go hang the construction sign now (ah, makes me nostalgic for the early days of the web, but I digress.) Feel free to comment here or on any of the individual entries that I've linked to below. Your feedback here will help evolve this important experiment in editorial opinion writing.

Here are the internal links to the Ink Blog entries for the three waves I've published to-date. Enjoy 'em:

Hey Carmi... I know you love a good outdoor picture with the hids. Well, we were at Minnehaha Falls in Minneapolis yesterday and I posted a picture that I think you might enjoy. Check it out and let me know what you think.

BTW, I havent' been commenting a lot but I've been watching and lurking and I just have to say that I love your attitude. Unlike so many, you truely seem to know how to appreciate your family and the wonder of having them. Thank you for spreading that!

Would you believe that I actually spotted a brand new website the other day with one of those sad little "under construction" signs on it?

It was even animated.

It made me feel all nostalgic and stuff.
