About This Space

(fleeting) is hosted and powered by the eponymous Micro.blog, which is a community of blogs stitched together by a timeline that allows for posts and comments. It looks kinda like Twitter, but with a few critical differences: No likes, no follower counts, no trending hashtags. The result is something like many small, overlapping communities. Learn more here and here.

There isn’t much of a focus at (fleeting), as is befitting a personal blog, though I’ve been known to talk about pencils, poetry (including centos), bookmarks that turn up in books, and an ongoing series of pics as I transition from one Field Notes notebook to the next.


My other blog is next door at A Foolish Consistency. Powered by the delightful Blot, AFC is more of a longform blog and commonplace book. It’s also a warehouse for miscellaneous and needlessly prolix bloviations from the deep past, dredged from several old and otherwise mothballed blogs dating from the early and mid Aughts.

A Foolish Consistency is part of the Poetry Blogging Network, which means I try to chunter on about poetry with some regularity.
