This website is powered by
have an account at micro.blog. Those posts originate from my Wordpress instance running on my “main” site, andrewcanion.com.
I like having this blot site, with my thinking being that it’s for random ephemera and other bits and bobs that aren’t as
“important” as those posted on my “proper” blog.
On a whim, I reached out to the Micro.blog community (at least that part of the community that I have connections with) in an attempt to find others who also have Blot-hosted sites. I wanted to see what others are doing with theirs.
This led to an interesting conversation, with some great nuggets of information shared around. The award, however, has to go to
John Philpin for his compiled list of users and their sites.
It’s this kind of co-operation amongst strangers that makes the internet fun again.

Success at the Day Job
It was great to be able to provide business advice and support to an iconic Perth business -
Scott Print, as part of my day job. VIDEO
An article about the work we did together as part of the Government’s Entrepreneurs’ Programme is also available.

iOS app, Allowance, is the first application I have seen using the new YNAB API. It’s quite a helpful little app, just bringing front and centre a small selection of budget categories. link

Don’t be an ugly parent
I am impressed with
Mark Dickel’s take on how parents should behave when engaging with their children’s sport.
“I love watching you play.”
This is what I now say to my kids after every game I watch them play.
I do not critique their play or discuss the game with them. Or talk with them about who played well or how many points they scored. Only
“I love watching you play”.
When I was taking my boy to Aussie Hoops - a basketball skills program for little kids starting out - there were already parents
“coaching” from the sidelines.
Just let kids have fun.

Props to this guy who showed up at the library this morning and ripped out a thermos, coffee mug, an old laptop and - best of all - a huge external clacky keyboard.

Seems I’m not the only one having similar thoughts about Markdown editing, and the place that Ulysses does or does not have in the workflow.
Chuq von Rospach reflects on his own experience.
I also had no idea that
Jason Snell had also raised this Markdown obfuscation issue, but now it makes me feel smart. link
