Sorting out categories and tags

I decided that I really needed to do a little more on the categories and the tags on the site to make them all make more sense. So that’s what I’m going to be doing on and off for the next few weeks, or more realistically, for a lot longer than that. Anyway, hopefully it’ll make things easier to understand and find over time. That is my aim at any rate.

Going over the pages

There’s actually a lot of pages on this site with a wide variety of information in them about stuff. As I’ve moved the site over from my old .com site I thought I should really go over all the pages and check them for errors, especially about downloads which are a little more problematic using wordpress.com.

So over the next few weeks I should have reviewed the lot.

Moved post

So I’ve moved. My new site is here, as “ashleyelsdon.me”. My old wordpress site at ashleyelsdon.com is still there, but will eventually be removed.

All the content from the old site has been moved over here, with a few exceptions, but nothing you’ll miss I’m sure. So for the forseable future, I’ll be here. It’s nicer.

Audiobus Preset store

I thought I’d like to capture some Audiobus presets for myself and store them somewhere. So I found a way to capture the presets to a Google spreadsheet and then embed the sheet in a web page. The page you can find here. I’ll be adding to it over time, so it’ll grow and more and more Audiobus presets will get added. Obviously, to get them to work you’ll need to access them from your iOS device and not a desktop.

Related content thing now available

Just a quick note to point out that you can now find ‘related’ content under each post, in the post’s own page that is and not on the home page. It’s a new feature in WordPress’ jetpack plugin. Hopefully it’ll be useful.

iOS Automation apps page is live

If you’re interested in automating stuff on your iOS device then I’ve just published a little list of the main apps I use for this. I hope to publish some more on the subject too, but for now, the list is available here.

New mobile version

I’ve upgraded the mobile version of the site. It should look a bit different now and a little nicer too. Hopefully it’ll give me a little bit more freedom to make the mobile version a bit different from the desktop version.

Over the next few days I’ll be tinkering with different themes for the mobile version, so if you see it change it’s just me playing.

My app of the week this week is Dispatch

Email is one of those things that always gets me down. I never seem to be on top of email, but this app helps, it helps a lot. Dispatch lets you do all sorts of things with email that other apps or services don’t, things like saving URLs directly from an email to instapaper or pocket. Taking dates and making calendar entries from them.

You get the idea. A lot of what it does is obvious, but I’ve not seen a way of doing this elsewhere. So finally I might get a bit more of a handle on email. Maybe.
