Dispatch from My Virtual Life

I managed, after a pointer to the right method from Kevin Levin of Civil War Memory, to get Boston 1775 posts fed into my Facebook page.

In addition, I’ve started posting on Twitter, though that site seems more useful for breaking news than centuries-old news, and for superficial personal observations than for considered analyses.

On the incoming side, I’m finding Google Reader to be an easy way to keep up with other blogs. Easy because I’m already signed onto Google through Blogger.
