A Writing Experiment, Part II (Hello Svbtle)

Back in January, when I published my first post for Ticci.org, I wrote that the site was meant to be an experiment to see how a more “personal blog” would fit in my workflow, which is largely based on writing all day for MacStories. With a mix of writing from the iPad, Markdown, Dropbox, and the excellent Calepin service, the first months of Ticci.org have been a success.

In fact, in spite of the very few posts I’ve put out on Ticci.org (16 to date, not including this one), I’ve learnt that I enjoy having a personal space separate from MacStories quite a bit. And so I’m happy to announce that starting today, Ticci.org joins the Svbtle network by Dustin Curtis.

You can read more about Svbtle in Dustin’s original post. I have decided to move Ticci.org to Svbtle for a number of reasons: it looks great, I am confident Dustin is the right person to evolve this idea into a solid, innovative service (more than it already is), and, overall, Svbtle shares many of the underlying concepts that I follow when I’m writing online. Svbtle’s interface is simple, it supports Markdown, and Dustin has big plans for it.

I’m looking forward to writing more. As usual, feel free to send an email, or a tweet, for comments, feedback, and suggestions.

P.S. The site’s icon – the one on the left – looks like a coffee cup, but it actually belongs to a tea icon set. I guess I’m fine with both.
