Around this time last year the good folks at WordPress sent me an email to inform me that they had done some crunching of my blog numbers. While these might be boring for some, I find them fascinating. Part of this fascination is my inherent love of all things number-y. But there’s also a large […]Read more "Anchor And Compass"
You may have noticed something different about the blog tonight. No? Well, no worries. In the event that you hadn’t noticed, I’ve opted to change my blog theme from one called Freshy to one called Ocean Mist. If you frequent my academic blog (danielgillis.wordpress.com) you’ll notice that I’ve adopted the same theme that I use over there for […]Read more "A New Theme"
On September 15, 2011 I suggested that I wouldn’t write this kind of post until I hit another major milestone. Well, sometime last week a milestone was hit which demanded a post.

Of course, given my penchant to distraction I opted to modify the […]Read more "The Month That Was NaBloPoMo"
This will be a short entry as I’m about to go jump on the treadmill. W00t! Three runs, 5 days, 15.73 kms. Not too shabby. Anyway, before I get off track and rambling about running – something I’ve been known to do – I just would like to point out that this is post number […]Read more "Now Serving 314"
It’s National Blog Posting Month. Or for those in the know, NaBloPoMo. Seriously. It’s a thing. I don’t make this stuff up. Okay, sometimes I do. But in this case, I didn’t. Just ask Dr. Beth – she was after all the one who informed me about this particular festival of the blog. As far […]Read more "Tomorrow You May Be Eaten – Words To Live By"
