A new blog: discours.es

This is just a heads-up that I’ve started (another!) new blog at discours.es. I’m using it for commenting on stuff in the news that I think’s important. At the moment that’s mainly NSA/privacy/security related stuff but will change over time.

You can subscribe to the RSS feed here: http://discours.es/feed*

I reserve the right to Megazord all of the following together at some point, but for now:

While I could have extended my use of the tumblr-powered Thought Shrapnel blog for comments, I don’t like the way tumblr is a silo. And its SEO is terrible. Instead, for discours.es I’m using postach.io, a really neat system that uses your Evernote account as a content store. That means I can easily blog offline – and I’ve always got a copy of what I write locally on my machine.

I did consider Posthaven (aiming to replicate the functionality of the now-defunct Posterous) but decided against it. I like the free-at-point-of-access-and-pay-to-upgrade model. 😉


* If you haven’t found a Google Reader replacement (or don’t currently use a feed reader) may I recommend Feedly?

  1. Hi Damian, thanks for the comment. There’s no plugins or anything like that with Postach.io so it’s less flexible. But it’s really easy to set up and, as you say, looks nice and clean. 🙂

  3. I am loving the Google+ comment plug ins. Although you run into a silo effect again. Yet I am actually finding more of my traffic being driven from Google+ than Twitter. One annoying feature is the lack of sharing across communities in one post on Google+ so I end up spamming my own comments.

    I am intrigued with postach.io.
