Piwik tells me that my top five hits here at PGH in 2013 were:
- VSCO + Fujifilm X100S — Experimenting with the very good VSCO film packs. I’m making a lot of use of Film Pack 02 these days, fond of several of the Kodak-style presets in particular. (some samples here)
- Making pictures — thinking about and eventually getting a new camera. Six months on, I find the photos from my X100s to be better and better as my use of it improves.
- pretty good hat home
- Integrating Runkeeper with Day One via Slogger — I am continuing to get a lot of pleasure from the connectivity to my various social spaces that Slogger provides, and I’m quite happy that the runkeeper connection works nicely (despite the initial setup of the API credentials being a chore).
- Alfred 2 workflows - managing a to-do list. Alfred is among the set of every good tools that enhance using my Mac. I wish I had a good equivalent at work.
Since the build system starts with pure markdown, a tiny bit of
wc at the shell can give me a few numbers:
- Total entries: 71
- Total “brief” (link or notes) posts: 35
- Total words: 16,154 (not including this post)

Today I plugged in Bigfoot to add some flair to footnotes, just in case. 1 Otherwise, this little gig has been pretty stable behind the scenes. I expect I’ll continue to post mostly using the iPad, as I have since August when I hooked up my publishing workflow to Editorial. Perhaps I’ll do a lot more mobile writing next year; I have been happy with my nice weekend afternoon routine of taking the iPad to the coffee shop to catch up.
I enjoyed the writing and thinking I did here in 2013. I have a set of notes brewing, drafts to pick up in the next days or weeks (maybe should update that Usesthis editors post to see just what happened to TextMate in the latter half of the year). I’m looking forward to it and continue to welcome feedback and comments via contact information at the bottom of the page. Thanks.
