Odds & Ends

Odds & Ends from around the ‘net:

Novel Additions: Fellow blogger and good friend Colby Willen has published his first novel, Dolor for Misdeeds, online at http://www.dolorformisdeeds.com. I read the novel some months ago, and I highly recommend it as an entertaining yarn with some thoughtful underpinnings.

Darth TaterMay the Spuds Be With You: Hasbro, the makers of the Mr. Potato Head line of toys, has announced its newest spudatomically correct product: Darth Tater. If you only knew the POWER of the dark spud…

Anonymity, or Not?: Paul Baxter has a thought-provoking post on anonymity and the internet. Baxter thoughtfully questions whether or not bloggers and the like should write under pseudonyms.

  2. I agree that more blogs need to have RSS feeds. What’s more, there are blogs that have them, but don’t advertise that they have them or possibly don’t realize that they have them.

    To find one for a blog, view the source of the page. Oftentimes, I have been able to locate a URL for a feed by searching for “rdf” “rss” or “atom” when it wasn’t apparent on the page itself.
