Keeping up with the sites

June 23, 2011 6:20 am | No Comments

While I discovered that I can pre-date posts and they will show up in the past, and have taken advantage of that fact (stop procrastinating!), I have also found out that Networked Blogs on Facebook hasn’t done any of my updates from In Old Fort Dodge since May 12.


This means that I will have to post the links myself – at least until I can figure out what went wrong. I keep hoping that I’ll just sit down and do several days’ worth of posts – scheduled for the proper days – but this means I’ll still have to access the Internet on a daily basis.

And I haven’t done anything with A Vague Recollection or A Wiser Steward in some time. I need to get going with them, as well.

In Old Fort Dodge is easier, in a way. Once I pick an article, I just have to type it and schedule it – I don’t have to plan it out in my head. Some of the articles have a lot of typing – I’m still not finished with the June 2 article about when President Theodore Roosevelt visited Fort Dodge. But I’ve since entered an article that was nearly that long, so I really don’t have an excuse now.

So, on to typing.

New beginnings

I had let my hosting lapse, so this is a brand-new beginning for this site.

I have several projects in the works. I’ve got a new site up and running: In Old Fort Dodge. I will post news articles from the early days of Fort Dodge, Iowa, and the surrounding area. The articles will be posted on the same day they were originally published, beginning March 1 with an article from March 1, 1904.

I registered a couple of other new domains but haven’t gotten started with them yet. This site will tie everything together.
