The Write Transition: Pingbacks and Twitter Mentions, Are You Up to Snuff?

The Write Transition

Like a toddler teaching astrophysics, I’m probably the last person to give tech advice.

For any bloggers not yet savvy about pingbacks and Twitter mentions, here are two tips I’d like to share that will make things easier for your followers:

My mom's cat, Diva. She loves...er...tolerates me. My mom’s cat. She loves…er…tolerates me.

1. Pingbacks

It’s an honor to be mentioned in someone else’s blog post, and it’s a great way to build blogging connections.

Japanese Macaque Snow Monkey - Perception of Time-2

I’ve made a mistake.

I look behind me but there is no turning back, I’ve past the point of no return.

The chill of frost has seeped further into my bones; the other side of the frozen lake appears just as far away as it did an hour ago. Or was it only a few minutes ago?

Japanese Macaque Snow Monkey - Perception of Time-1

Earlier today I met up with a friend, a theoretical physicist who has one of the best minds I’ve ever known. Her head is often in the clouds and her optimism makes her irresistible in conversation.
