On the Move… Again

Here be Subtlety is moving. Again. And yes, I’m actually talking about this blog. I wouldn’t spend two weekends painting various rooms of this apartment if I didn’t plan on staying for a while longer. After my 14 days trial of Squarespace came close to an end, I decided that yes, it was worth the […]

What I Have Been Up To

Playing around with Squarespace. I feel like a betrayer writing about it on my WordPress blog, but hey, let’s face it… Squarespace is pretty and fun to use. I have yet to find out whether it’s worth the money it would cost me, but that’s why I’m playing around with it. Playing around with Balsamiq […]

Spanish Songs and Stop-Motion

I think you can pretty much guess, that I didn’t stop after the first layer of paint. Truth is, I all got it done in one day as planned, but then I was tired that I couldn’t find the energy to load the pictures up to the web and write a nice blog entry, so […]

Delivery Tracking Fail

I don’t know exactly whether this is an Amazon or a DHL Fail, but I’m pretty sure it’s one or the other and I found it too confusing and strange to just let it go. Just in case you don’t notice it right away… this is a parcel tracking status for an order that was […]

Monday Link and Video Dump

So, here’s what I have been up to (in no particular order)… Watching and loving Smart Girls at the Party. From the four episodes I’ve seen so far, I think this one’s my favorite: Watching and loving this season’s American Idol. I’m now a bit town, but I think I got it figured out now. […]

The Twitter Experience (So Far)

I’ve been using Twitter for a couple of months though and although I agree that sometimes it feels like it is totally overhyped, I still use it on a regular basis which must mean that I think it adds some value to my online life somehow. Could I live without it? Sure. Would I miss […]

Saturday Video Link Dump

I don’t think I could match that. I may have 32 songs in my repertoire, but I usually play them from start to end. Noteboek from Evelien Lohbeck on Vimeo. Awesome. I also had great fun watching all the Google Chrome Shorts on the Google Chrome Channel. Some I like a lot more than others, […]

Internet Pet Peeves

I have loads of pet peeves ready and available for about every aspect of life, but here are two recent ones that concern the internet: “Under construction” sites. Stop it. If there’s nothing on there why do you have to put up a link there in the first place? Why do you make me click […]

Muddling Through WordPress Widgets

Since I am now using widgets to put together my sidebar I ran into the problem of adding a bit more customized content to the sidebar. However, I managed to add my latest tweet from twitter plus a cute photo experiment to the sidebar by using the Test widget. Now I was wondering whether I […]

The Power of Syndication

A couple of month ago I got an email from an old friend who was just about to move to Mosambique to live there for the next three years. To keep in touch with her friends she set up a web page (good idea). Apparently she was unhappy with the blog providers and instead decided […]
