A commenter recently requested that I restart my links posts. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to happen: writing links posts was a lot of fun, but I did not feel that it was the best use of my time (open mic threads are unlikely to be revived either, for similar reasons). What the commenter didn’t realize, however, was that I have a Twitter account devoted to links. It occurred to me that some of my readers, especially newer ones, may not be aware of the existence or of how to access some of my material. With that in mind, here is a quick list of where to find things:
Alastair’s Links: My links account on Twitter.
@Zugzwanged: My personal Twitter account, where I am currently inactive, but from which my posts here are all linked.
Postcards from the Oubliette: My personal Tumblr account, intermittently active. I have an inactive Tumblr devoted to crafting, especially knitting, but I am not sharing the details of that. Nor am I sharing the details of my old website devoted to general wordgaming nerdery.
Curious Cat: Where I answer questions. Again, this is currently inactive, but may be revived in the future.
40 Bikes: A backup of my really old blog. I no longer agree with certain of my positions there. Caveat lector. The blog that I ran during my time in St Andrews was backed up onto my current blog when I first started it.
Passing the Salt Shaker: A dormant group blog I once participated in around gender issues.
The main places that you need to know about on this blog are generally found in the pages bar at the top.
Mere Fidelity: Links to every episode we have ever recorded. We also have a page on Soundcloud and a Patreon account for anyone interested in supporting us.
Writings Elsewhere: Links to pretty much all of my posts on other sites.
Books: Links to books I have written or to which I have contributed, along with a number of free ebooks.
Larger Projects: Hover over this title in the bar at the top to see links to a number of larger blogging projects I have started (and a few I have finished) over the years. Particularly noteworthy are my 40 Days of Exodus series, which may whet your appetite for my forthcoming book on the subject with Andrew Wilson, my notes on Luke and John, and my post of questions and answers on same-sex marriage (my most popular blog post ever).
Photos and Travel: Photos of various special occasions and holidays. See my three part series on my America trip, for instance.
Audio and Video: Various videos and talks I have given.
About: A very brief (and old) bio and the page where people generally contact me.
I think that is pretty much it, save for the donate button, which is in the sidebar. I generally avoid asking for money and my blog has always operated at a loss, but donations to defray some of the costs of hosting are always most welcome!
Hold on what.?? You knit?
I do. If you check through some of my photos you’ll see several examples of my creations.
