So here’s a fun fact: the no notes blog has been around in one form or another (it was originally a blogger-blog, not a wordpress-blog) since October 2005!
Obviously this would be more impressive if I posted more diligently. But, you know, trying to making a living and all that — takes up a lot of time these days.
I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned it, but I’ve lately been using Tumblr a lot, and this one might be of interest: http://lettersfromhere.tumblr.com/.
It’s not very substantial, but collects links to places that interest me, including of course New Orleans, as well as stuff related to the idea of “place” in general — everything from maps to architecture. I have a secret hope of some day writing a new series of essays called “Letters from Here,” sort of like LfNO, but chances are good that it’ll never get beyond the Tumblr.
I’m also blogging these days for Design Observer. The stuff I’m doing there has nothing to do with New Orleans, place, or “St. James Infirmary,” but, you know, I try to keep it interesting anyway.
Anyway, I’ll continue to update this site as “SJI” news breaks, so stay tuned!
