Taking some time out from blogging about the Anchorage equal rights ordinance, or about anything else for that matter, to work some on the website. Used to be I had a website under the .nu domain, as well as some blogs at blogger.com — still do, actually, but all their content has already or will be moving here (& I’ll be aiming the domain Henkimaa.nu to come here too, once that content is moved), but I’m still in the process of organizing the website to be how I want it to look.
For the technically curious, I’m using WordPress for the main guts of this site; but I plan to use some of the other bells & whistles available at my (fairly new) webhost (Bluehost.com) too. At the moment I’m figuring out what WordPress theme I want to use & how to customize it, so there’s gonna be a bit of morphing of appearance for the next little bit until I get it put together to my satisfaction.
For the content curious, despite my focus over the last few days on the Anchorage equal rights ordinance & LGBT political rights, I’m not primarily a political or even an LGBT political blogger. But y’know, I’m doing enough of it that I’ll face reality & make that a main category of the blog. Mainly, however, I am a writer/poet: hence the category Field of Words. I also blog a lot about health, especially relating to insulin resistance, prediabetes, & diabetes prevention: hence the category Terveys, which is the Finnish word for health. I also have a B.A. in Religion (Wellesley College, 1981), & continue to have an interest in religion & spirituality, not to mention my own little self-invented belief system, hence the category No Way Way. The category Itse (Finnish for self) is for more personal day-do-day stuff, or a catch-all for other subject matter. Other categories will come clear in time. (For example, Finndex, which will be for all things Finnish. That I write about, anyway.)
But now: back to work.
